Boneheads BBQ – Halifax Nova Scotia

One (of the many) things I will miss about Halifax is the Barbecue. Canada. Barbecue. Roll those around in your head a bit- not the first place you think of when you think brisket. And yet, with as many barbecue places I’ve been to, Boneheads is still my favorite by far.

Westcliff Diner – Halifax, Nova Scotia

Today I hit up the Westcliff diner, a great restaurant in a ’60s? ’70s? storefront. It came highly recommended to me by several friends, and certainly lived up to expectations. I had a deliciously juicy fresh hamburger, with gooey melted cheese an sauteed onions. Anna had the grilled cheese and a milkshake, and my friend Irenee had an order of fries with a milkshake. The prices are some of the absolute lowest in the area.

Just around the corner is the Look Ho Ho. I haven’t been here, but the neon is outstanding.

Johnny’s Snack Bar- Halifax, NS

Johnny’s immediately struck me as my kind of place. A counter on the right, two rows of booths on the left. The smell of coffee and grilling meat.
A small TV in the corner had the Canada vs. USA mens curling game on. Curling, both this game and the Canada v. China game from the night before were the hot topics of discussion amongst the clientele.

I had a deliciously tender roast beef sandwich. My buddy Phil, the grilled cheese, cut neatly into quarters. My girlfriend, Anna, had a fresh, hand formed burger. Desert between the three of us consisted of a chocolate milkshake, a vanilla one, a strawberry sundae, a chocolate sundae and a slice of warm apple pie ala mode.
