The most underrated restaurant in Halifax

The most underrated restaurant in Halifax is waiting to be found, hidden in the halls of the Akerley campus of Nova Scotia Community College. Fresh Twenty One, formerly known as the Akerley Dining Room, is a fine-dining restaurant that is run completely by the students of the […]

Lunch at The Canteen: Halifax

Lunch at The Canteen: Halifax

I finally made it to the dark side to try The Canteen, and it was oh so good. Located in the lofty space above Two If By Sea in Dartmouth, it’s only a small climb up the stairs to the bright and airy home of […]

Lunch at Kee Heong Cantonese Bakery: Halifax

Lunch at Kee Heong Cantonese Bakery: Halifax

Who doesn’t love Dim Sum? I could pretty much eat it everyday, and luckily Kee Heong Cantonese Bakery in downtown Halifax offers up delicious breads, pastries, and Dim Sum everyday of the week! Kee Heong is the epitome of delicious hole-in-the-wall. In fact, the first time […]

Dinner & Drinks at Field Guide: Halifax

Dinner & Drinks at Field Guide: Halifax

Field Guide is a small but unmistakable spot on Gottingen Street that debuted late in 2013 amongst the flurry of openings in the North End this past Fall. Owners Ceilidh Sutherland and Dan Vorstermans cleverly named their restaurant as a means of ‘guiding’ patrons through their […]

Birthday Drinks at Onyx: Halifax

Birthday Drinks at Onyx: Halifax

Ahhh the muddled cocktail. Muddled cocktails have made a huge resurgence in the past few years, possibly as a result of the 1920s  reincarnating itself into hipster coolness, the re-release of the Great Gatsby, or maybe because they are just plain delicious. Whatever their reputation, they […]

Everything at Lion & Bright: Halifax

Everything at Lion & Bright: Halifax

Lion & Bright is the best of both beverage worlds: A café with delicious coffee, pastries, and sandwiches, and a wine bar with beer, wine, bar snacks, and great dishes with local ingredients. And attached to a local market at that! It’s genius really, and very […]

Drinks at The Auction House: Halifax

Drinks at The Auction House: Halifax

Ahh, happy hour. It is great any day of the week, but particularly on Friday. After a long week of monotony and tired mornings, crappy work and too much coffee, what is better than relaxing with a good drink and some salty nibbles at your […]

Dinner at Agricola Street Brasserie: Halifax

Dinner at Agricola Street Brasserie: Halifax

I am a sucker for good mood lighting at a restaurant. I love romantically lit bistros, cozy and dark hole-in-the-walls, and bustling trendy hotspots with that perfect balance of sexy shadow and light. I am always excited when I walk into a restaurant and see […]

Lunch at Truly Tasty Ramen: Halifax

Lunch at Truly Tasty Ramen: Halifax

Do you need a fork? Sadly this is a phrase that I hear all too often at Asian restaurants. I must look very awkward while using chopsticks, because every time I sit down for a bowl of Pho, a heaping plate of Pad Thai, or […]

Dinner at 2 Doors Down: Halifax

Dinner at 2 Doors Down: Halifax

I finally had dinner at 2 Doors Down! For months, I have been peering longingly into the windows of the Barrington Street location two doors down (get it?) from its older sibling Chives and drooling over the menu online. So, when my dear friend and former classmate […]

Dinner at Mother’s Pizza: Halifax

Dinner at Mother’s Pizza: Halifax

Mother’s Pizza has been open for just over a week now but I have been itching to go there for ages. Located on the corner of Agricola and Young, I impatiently watched this building develop from the ground up, wondering what the structure would be. […]

Dinner at Gio: Halifax

Dinner at Gio: Halifax

Some people think that if you love going to expensive places to eat then you are a food snob, a [insert derogatory foodie insult here], or worse, a foodie. Sometimes, I think food bloggers in particular get a bad rap for constantly talking about what […]
