Halifax Burger Week 2016 – Burgers 1-6

Burger Week is now in full swing, and everyone is talking about what burgers they love, and which ones fell short. I have been powering through multiple burgers a day, and I figured I would give my thoughts on the burgers I’ve tackled.

My time has mostly been devoted to eating burgers, and laying down after eating burgers, so my thoughts here are mostly going to be right to the point. Let me know if you agree, or disagree, with anything I have to say on the first six burgers (I love a good burger debate)!

Burger #31 – Southwestern Burger (The Argyle)

Life of Burgers is back! After a couple months of special circumstances (recovering from Burger Week and some major tech issues) with no reviews, I have returned to make it up to my readers!

Now that I’m back, I’m ready for a burger-filled summer, and sharing my findings with you guys. I recently headed back to The Argyle, where one of my favourite burgers thus far comes from. Located at 1575 Argyle Street, The Argyle is one of the many restaurants that are extremely popular during “patio season”. For my second visit, I went with the Southwestern Burger.

Stats

From the menu: “Guacamole, smoked bacon, jalapeño, crispy onions and spicy Monterey Jack, lettuce and tomato”

Halifax Burger Week – Day #2

After a successful Day #1 (despite the weather trying to sabotage that), it was time to move on to Day #2! Joining the Life of Burgers team on the second day was Olivia, Jordan, Drew, Savannah, Ryan, Ian, and Sacha.

Burger #9 – Deli Burger from Rogue’s Roost

Rogue's Roost

The Deli Burger from Rogue’s Roost provided us with another solid start to our day. The coleslaw stole the show, and I really enjoyed how it accompanied the patty of the burger. The creamy crunch that it gave was awesome! The smoked meat was something I have never had on a burger, but it gave a new dimension of meat that was very much welcome. I really liked the texture of the bun, but there was mixed feelings from the others at the table. Overall, this burger should probably be on your Burger Week list.

Drew: “I thought the smoked meat to burger patty ratio would be off, but the portioning was actually perfect”

Burger #19 – Everything Burger (The Argyle)

While a classic burger can be a pretty good time, sometimes you need a burger that sounds so crazy that it may just be super delicious. The Argyle, located at 1575 Argyle Street, has a burger on their menu that is so jam-packed full of toppings that it is borderline outrageous. This burger is appropriately named the Everything Burger.

Stats

From the menu: “Egg, crispy onions, Brie, cheddar, smoked bacon, pulled pork, jalapeño, tomato, and roasted garlic mayo”
