Burger squirrels, burger cars, and burger heat. These were all things that could be found throughout Halifax during this year’s Burger Week. With a whopping 79 restaurants participating this year, the choices were endless for those looking for a good burger, and the list of restaurants that really stepped up is a long one!
While this year I didn’t tackle every burger like last year (burgers can get pricey when you don’t have that Ambassador title), I still had a pretty successful Burger Week. I got to interview this year’s Burger Ambassadors, which you can read here, and numerous restaurants let me come in for a sneak peek of their burger before the week even began!
This year I got to preview 13 burgers, and through Burger Week I ate another 22, making for 35 whole burgers that I got to try out. I was really amazed with all the delicious burgers that I ate this year, and picking my top choices was not an easy task. However, I have finally come to a decision on which ones, just narrowly, beat out the rest this year, in my opinion.
Here are my Top 3 burgers, as well as some honourable mentions, from Halifax Burger Week 2016!
The restaurants are prepping, people are making their lists, and the beer is being chilled. It is now only 2 sleeps until Halifax Burger Week, and the excitement is real! I have my burger schedule all ready to go, and while it doesn’t include every burger like last year, it is definitely filled with some delicious-sounding ones that I can’t wait to try. I’ve been lucky enough to already try a bunch of the burgers being offered this year, and you’ve read all about them in Parts 1-3. Now it’s time to give you 3 more options, all of which you’re probably going to want to add to your own lists.
Here’s what The Armview, Durty Nelly’s, and Indochine Banh Mi are going to being cooking up and serving to you this Burger Week!
Recently I caught a rerun of You Gotta Eat Here and it just so happened to be the episode where they visited The Armview right here in Halifax. One of the dishes they featured was their Haddock Burger, and after seeing how delicious the burger looked, I knew I had to pay a visit to this place, which I’ve discovered many people swear by!
From the menu: “Haddock loin with tomato, crisp lettuce, & lemon dill tartar”
