Burger #47 – South West Burger (Your Father’s Moustache)

I’m quickly closing in on burger #50, and I’m pretty excited to reach this milestone! I’m not quite there yet though, so it’s time to get to work. For #47 I headed back to Your Father’s Moustache for my third burger from here; a burger hat-trick if you will. They have a section on their menu that’s completely devoted to burgers, and this time I decided to go with the South West Burger.


From the menu: “100% pure beef patty grilled with Bull’s-Eye BBQ sauce, and topped with sauteed chipotle onions, mozzarella cheese, lettuce, onion, tomato, and pickle”

Halifax Burger Week – Day #3

Halifax Burger Week is in full swing and it was time to venture out into the city for Day #3! Joining Team Life of Burgers this time was Olivia, Savannah, Jordan, Nadine, and Elaine.

Burger #17 – Peanut Butter Burger from Darrell’s


The Peanut Butter Burger from Darrell’s is a regular menu item and it is hugely popular within Halifax. I, however, have never been a huge fan of it. Not that there is necessarily anything wrong with it, I just don’t really enjoy the combination of peanut butter with their patty. I do, however, think that their patty is pretty good (I’ve had other burgers that use the same patty). With this burger, I also really enjoyed the bun, and it was able to hold up when faced with the peanut butter and burger juices that this burger provides. This burger seems to have a pretty big fan base, so if you think it is something you would like, you should definitely try it and form your own opinion.

Savannah: “I really liked the peanut butter as it wasn’t too sweet, and it worked well with the bacon”

Burger #22 – Mushroom & Swiss Burger (Your Father’s Moustache)

It’s been about a week since my annual Thanksgiving food coma, so I figured it was time to get another burger. For this one, I went back to a regular spot of mine. Your Father’s Moustache, located at 5686 Spring Garden Road, continues to be a favourite place of mine as they have many different delicious options to choose from. This was my second burger-related visit, and this time I went with their Mushroom & Swiss Burger.


From the menu: “100% Pure beef patty smothered in sautéed mushrooms and Swiss cheese, with lettuce, onion, tomato and pickle”

Burger #4 – Moustache Burger (Your Father’s Moustache)

For #4, I went to a favourite place of mine, Your Father’s Moustache. Found at 5686 Spring Garden Road, which is above Rockbottom (see Burger #3), this restaurant and bar has become a pretty popular spot on this busy Halifax street. Not only do they have their spacious dining area, but they also have a rooftop patio (which sadly was closed when we went) for those nice summer days. With a few different burgers to choose from, I decided to go with the Moustache Burger.


From the menu: “Our signature burger starts with a 100% pure beef patty, topped with pulled pork, banana peppers, Swiss cheese, two onion rings, lettuce, tomato, pickle, and our spicy BBQ sauce.”
