Mr. Speaker, it's the sloppiest, sauciest, greasiest time of the year in Halifax. It is Burger Week again, presented by The Coast newspaper, with a portion of profits going to Feed Nova Scotia.
Now in its sixth year, with a record-breaking 125 burgers to choose from, there is a burger for everybody. We have burgers for vegans at DeeDee's, with a lentil and roasted mushroom patty. There are burgers for breakfast at Robie Street Station, a sausage patty with egg between two hash browns coming right up.
Doughnut lovers can rejoice. They can enjoy their beef and a coffee-glazed bacon doughnut fritter bun at Vandal Doughnut. Got the munchies? The Auction House burger comes topped with mac and cheese, Mmmmmm.
What would Halifax Burger Week be without a donair burger, sandwiched between garlic fingers, brought to us by King of Donair? Try to save room for a trio of tiny macaroon burgers at the Old Apothecary.
I call on my fellow Haligonians to grab their burger passports and wet wipes, and hit the town, using #HFXBurgerWeek.
