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
Burger Week is now over halfway done, and it doesn’t seem like Halifax is slowing their consumption down anytime soon. With the end of the week in sight, I have been adding more and more burgers to my list, to the point of not knowing how I will make time, or stomach space, to try them. However, I will be pushing until the end of Day 7 to make sure I get to experience all the ones that I want to.
For now, I’m back to give you a look at 8 more burgers I have tried, and hopefully it will point you in the right direction in terms of burger choices. Trust me when I say that you’re going to want to read this one, because there is some awesome burgers this time around!
Burger: Donair Burger – Flipburger’s famous patty topped with Tony’s Famous Donair meat, plus onions, tomatoes and Flipburger’s own chipotle mayo
Closing in on the midway point of Halifax Burger Week, it’s time for Day #4! Joining the team on this day was Jordan, Ryan, and Olivia.
Burger #26 – Jalapeño Beer Cheeseburger from Elle’s Bistro
Starting the day off was the Jalapeño Beer Cheeseburger from Elle’s Bistro. Obviously, the first thing I noticed was the onion rings (if you have been reading my other posts you should know of my love for them by now). They did offer a great crunch to the burger which was really nice. I did like the use of cheese sauce in lieu of a traditional cheese slice. However, it was advertised as a jalapeño cheese sauce, but I didn’t really taste any heat at all. The patty itself was cooked really nicely, and my only complaint is that I would have like to taste a bit more seasoning. The texture of the top bun was really great, and it was one of my favourite parts. Overall, this was a decent burger, but not amazing.
For burger #8, I decided to change it up a little bit and do some finer dining. I went to The Five Fishermen, located at 1740 Argyle Street, not knowing quite what to expect. The only thing I really knew about this place was that it could be kind of pricey, but I decided to give it a go anyways. They only have one burger on their menu, and it is titled the Sirloin Burger.
From the menu: “House made 8oz grill burger, maple chipotle BBQ sauce, provolone cheese, smoked bacon, lettuce, tomato and red onion crisps served with hand-cut fries.”
