Burger Week Burgers with the most Local Flavour
Burger Week 2019 is taking over Halifax again starting March 28th. Last year, over 149,000 burgers were flipped. And this year, there are more than 140 burgers to choose from. So, just like last year, we’re sharing our top local ingredients burgers. There are some pretty creative uses of local. That’s for sure.
Get an early start on Burger Week with this breakfast themed burger featuring a sausage patty and a fried egg. Then bring on a dollop of local with their house made Acadian Maple mayo and put it all on a cinnamon roll bun. We’ll save you a seat at our table.
Elle’s loves local ingredients and big flavours coming out of the kitchen. So, check this out. Their burger starts with Saltbox Brewing Stout-marinated beef. Then, they top it with candied bacon and to throw in even more local craft beer. How about a slice of Propeller Brewing IPA sharp cheddar cheese and an onion ring? We’re in!
There’s local bacon, then there’s taking it up a notch with pork belly. The 3 Little Pigs burger features spiced local pork from Oulton’s along with two other tasty pork products – pancetta and cicerone. This one also comes topped with a fried egg. It’s a flavor bomb.
Guess what the star ingredient is in this one? You got it – fresh Nova Scotia haddock. Beer battered Nova Scotia haddock to be exact. The toppings are also super creative with pico de gallo and hickory sticks and their own house made tartar sauce.
When we started writing the burger blog, we expected to find local ingredients. We did not expect to find local sweet potato. But here it is in all its sweet potato and black bean patty glory. Topped with jalapeno crema for some zip and pickled red onions on a potato bun. Totally vegan friendly. Totally on our list to enjoy.
When you start with Getaway Farms beef, you know it’s going to be good. Add queso cheese sauce, avocado, jalapenos and crushed house made “Doritos” and you know it’s going to be great.
We’re not even 100% sure how to pronounce it, but we love farm to table cooking and the free range Mangalitsa pork used in this burger was raised on the Studio East owners’ own farm – Kisik Ridge Estate. This Bahn-mi inspired burger is topped with lemongrass, crispy bacon, daikon apple slaw and some other delicious toppings we also can’t pronounce, but still making our mouths water.
Now you know where we’re headed during Burger Week. But our list is just a sampling of the burgers you’ll find in the NS Ingredients section on the Burger Week website. Check it out and thanks for loving local on your burger as much as we do.
