Lindsay Nelson lives and works in downtown Halifax and has made it her mission to cover the restaurant scene, champion regional foods and to engage her fellow Haligonians in her food quests. A self-proclaimed food nerd, pizza junkie, tofu apologist and friendly local, Lindsay knows where the good food is at, and will probably take you up on your offer to buy her a beer.
Halifax has lots of great coffee shops. Your favourite java place is probably the one in your neighbourhood, where they know your name and what you drink (half-caf no-foam non-fat vanilla soy latte, right?). Maybe you have a go-to shop where you meet up with friends or hold meetings. Or maybe you are a coffee snob and only the best will do!
Haligonians love their pizza, but we’ve become accustomed to budget pizza shops that cater to hungry students, busy families, the post-bar crowd and people in pajamas. Salvatore’s and Tomavino’s have been quietly leading the gourmet pizza front for years but now a brave new Halifax craves local ingredients, authenticity, artisanal technique and a good wine pairing!
The area covered by Dartmouth is much larger than that of Halifax. Tack on Cole Harbour and we’re dealing with a vast area with distinct identities and pizza delivery zones. Whether you live in Highfield Park, Woodside or Montebello, pizza shops can be counted on to provide a wide range of foods of varying quality and value. So, you live in Dartmouth. This list attempts to answer that age-old question: Where is the best pizza?
For a city with a culinary heritage of boiled fish and potatoes, Halifax is crazy about sushi! Whether you are a newbie, purist or straight up glutton, there is something for everyone. There are budget sushi cafés, all-you-can-eat restaurants, boutique and traditional sushi shops. Whether you prefer authentic nigiri or deep fried cream cheese tempura crunch rolls – there is a world of sushi out there! These are your best bets.
Whether it’s a quasi-German beer garden, trendy Italian resto, waterfront brewpub or rooftop party patio, Halifax has lots of great options for soaking up the sun’s rays while cooling off with a nice cold bevvy. There is something for everyone, from starving students to families to health nuts and beer nerds. These are Halifax’s best patios.
There is no shortage of pizza shops in Halifax, from gourmet to old school, specializing in everything from garlic fingers and donairs to poutine! It can be pretty overwhelming, so let’s just focus on pizza for a second. Quality, variety, price and delivery hours can all be important factors when we have to make that oh-so-crucial decision: “Where should I order from tonight?”
Surprisingly, Halifax doesn’t have a lobster roll culture on par with the likes of New England. With no local standard, a lobster roll is often an afterthought, carelessly thrown on a menu. But, we have lots of fresh, local lobster and there are a few places doing it right. Some rolls will please the purist by showcasing the lobster, while others incorporate hot butter, rich cream or flavoured aioli to elevate the flavour.
Just about everywhere serves nachos, from sports bars to Mexican restaurants and pizza shops. They are often considered an appetizer even if they would satisfy the hunger of the starting line of the Mooseheads. This perfect sharing dish, whether it’s date night or game night, is often an afterthought once a couple of beers have rumbled one’s hunger. But if given the foresight, where are the best nacho destinations in Halifax?
