Veggie Burger Series – Part 2

The hot days in Halifax seem never-ending, and the same can be said about the delicious veggie burgers that restaurants have on their menus! I’ll admit that before starting this series, I wasn’t super excited about focusing primarily on meatless burgers for the majority of the summer (what can I say, I am a carnivore through and through), but that opinion has quickly changed, and it’s all thanks to the creative and well-thought out veggie burgers that places in the HRM have come up with.

See what I mean with a look at three more veggie burgers, in Part 2 of the Veggie Burger Series!

You can check out Part 1 of the series, and the first three meatless burgers I tried, here!

Also, stay tuned for my Burger Week Wrap-Up, where I’ll give my Top 3 burgers of the week, as well as some other ones worth mentioning!

Burger #40 – Bacon Cheese Burger (The Wooden Monkey)

While the days might not be getting any cooler, Summer is slowly nearing its end. With the end of this season comes the end of the many awesome patios found in this city, so why not enjoy them while I still can! For my next patio visit, I made my way to 1707 Grafton Street where The Wooden Monkey is located. This was my first visit to this location (I visited the Dartmouth location during Burger Week) so I was eager to see what they had to offer in terms of burgers. I decided to go with their Bacon Cheese Burger.


From the menu: “Grilled 5oz. beef burger from Getaway Farm, caramelized onions, melted white cheddar, bacon, lettuce, tomato, dill pickles and spicy mayo”
