Burger #62 – Le Nordique (Relish)

It’s been fairly quiet here over at Life of Burgers, due largely in part to an extremely busy work schedule. Working 70 hour weeks for the last 9 months was great for the bank account, but it didn’t really allow much time to get my hands on some tasty burgs.

Luckily, the film season is slowing down now for the year in Nova Scotia, which means I’m ready to make up for some lost time and get down to some burger business!

To get me back on track, I swung by Relish and ordered up Le Nordique, and a Centurion poutine to accompany it!

From the menu: “The Rookie (roasted garlic mayo, lettuce, tomato, beet relish) with Swiss cheese, back bacon, dijon, and caramelized onions”

Burger #49 – Big Devil Burger (Baton Rouge)

During Halifax Burger Week, some of the participating restaurants opted to have one of their regular menu burgers be their entry for the week. One of these places was Baton Rouge. The name of this burger was titled the Big Devil Burger, and since no one had anything bad to say about it at the time, I figured it was time to go back and give it its own LoB write-up!

Stats

From the menu: “Half-pound of premium beef, fried onion rings, tomato, Swiss cheese, smoked bacon, sweet & spicy BBQ sauce”

Burger #41 – Smokehouse Burger (Athens)

Given the fact that burgers are such a popular food item, it seems that almost every restaurant nowadays has a burger on their menu. Even some places that specialize in certain foods will sometimes throw a burger on their menu as an option for a potential picky customer. While I’m all about a world full of burgers, this leaves a lot of opportunity for mediocre burgers, and nobody wants that.

One of the places that I was worried that this might be the case was Athens Restaurant. Located at 6273 Quinpool Road, Athens is known for its extensive Greek menu, as well as having a pretty great breakfast selection. I was apprehensive about going here specifically for a burger, but after they had a pretty good showing during Burger Week with their lamb burger, I figured it was only fair to give one of their regular menu items a shot.

Stats

From the menu: “6oz local, ground beef patty, BBQ sauce, mayo, smoked bacon, breaded onion ring & Swiss on a kaiser bun”

Burger #24 – Swiss & Mushroom Burger (Rogue’s Roost)

One thing that Halifax has a great selection of, is the wide variety of local craft beers that are available to choose from. Many of these local brews have become extremely popular for many Haligonians. One place that contributes to the delicious selection of beer is Rogue’s Roost. Located at 5435 Spring Garden Road, Rogue’s Roost not only brews a great selection of beer, but they also have a pretty tasty menu. Wanting to check off another Spring Garden burger, I went with their Swiss & Mushroom Burger.

Stats

From the menu: “Topped with melted swiss cheese and mushrooms and burger sauce”

It’s been about a week since my annual Thanksgiving food coma, so I figured it was time to get another burger. For this one, I went back to a regular spot of mine. Your Father’s Moustache, located at 5686 Spring Garden Road, continues to be a favourite place of mine as they have many different delicious options to choose from. This was my second burger-related visit, and this time I went with their Mushroom & Swiss Burger.
