If you’re new to the city or live under a rock, Burger Week (March 22–28) is when a ton of places around the city go all in with incredible burgers—new creations and old classics. This year there are 125 places taking part! Some of them offer $6 dollar burgers, and others offer Feed Nova Scotia burgers where $1 for each burger sold goes to Feed NS. Eat amazing food and do some good—it’s a win-win! Here are some of our favourites and some we can’t wait to try.
With 125 burgers to try, this only gives you a small taste of what’s available. Download the Burger Week Passport and pin it to your wall for the entire list! And check out the Burger Week website for more information on all the burgers.
