With only 2 days between us and Halifax Burger Week, it’s time to get serious about the meaty times ahead. I’ve already given you a look at 7 of the burgers being offered (which you can see in Part 1 and Part 2), and now it’s time to start drooling over 4 more tasty dishes!
For your consideration in this part of the series are burgers from The Five Fishermen, Relish, La Frasca, and The Bicycle Thief!
The Five Fishermen
The day finally arrived. I put my Ambassador sash on (I won the title of Burger Ambassador after being selected by The Coast), and ventured out into the snow-filled city of Halifax, ready to embark on my week-long burger adventure. For day #1, I managed to get to 8 different restaurants to try their contributions for Burger Week. Joining me on the first leg was Olivia, Jordan, Savannah, Ryan, Don, Drew, Sacha, Ian, Nadine, and John, and the majority of them have already agreed to join me for most of Burger Week (they have been appropriately named “Team Life of Burgers”).
Burger #1 – The Classic from Bearly’s/Ace Burger
The Classic from Bearly’s/Ace Burger was a great choice for the first burger of the week. The burger was a hit with everyone at the table. The patty was so juicy, and had an awesome flavour to it. The addition of the dijonnaise was great as it really worked well with the patty. The group consensus was that the pickles were delicious and very welcome on this burger. I also really liked the bun because it tasted fresh, and it was the perfect size for this burger. For this burger, we were also joined by fellow Burger Ambassador Vicki, and last year’s Ambassador Lindsay, who runs the Eat This Town blog (look for her post about this meet-up!).
Savannah: “The beef used in this burger is delicious!”
Ryan: “I thought the composition of this burger was great”
