If you have been following my blog, then you know one of our favorite things to do when traveling is taking a – Local Food Tour.
On our visit to 🍁 Halifax, Nova Scotia – Canada, we did just that!
We enjoyed a wonderful food tour experience with – 🍇 Taste Halifax Food & Beer Tours.
A Fully Guided Driving – Food, Beer & Wine Experience
We chose the 🦞 Eat Halifax Tour, just one of the many offered by this local business.
It’s a full 2 ½ hour guided tour, driving you to local favorite eateries, cideries, wine bars and more!
If you love tasting and discovering local dishes when you travel to new destinations, then you’re going to thoroughly enjoy this experience.
This tour will also share a bit of the history of the City, as you make your way along the streets of Halifax.
An ideal food and drink tour for foodie, craft beer and wine enthusiasts.
Our guide for this tour (Patrick) arrived at our 🏨 hotel with his driver, right at the pre-arranged time.
We were given a short introduction of what to expect, and some quick information about the places we were going to visit while on the tour.
🚌 We were then on our way to our first stop!
Patrick explained that on this tour , there would be 5 tasting stops in various places throughout the City.
We were going to taste some various local food favorites, as well as sample cider, beer & wine during our tour.
We would also be visiting some historic sites along the way including; Citadel Hill and the historic – Hydrostone Neighborhood.
Our first stop was to a very popular retail seafood outlet and eatery, located along Halifax’s waterfront.
Here, we were able to meet the owner of this business, who was also a long time 🦞 lobster fisherman.
He gave us an excellent recap on the 🦞 lobster fishery in Nova Scotia. Its vital importance to the economy and livelihood of residents in this Province.
We were then able to taste a sample of fresh lobster inside the very popular – 🦞 “Lobster Roll” dish, here on the East Coast of Canada.
Alongside with a few potato chips, it was delicious!
After a short visit and thoroughly enjoying our taste of fresh lobster, it was time to hop back in the van and make our way to our next stop.
The Chain Yard Urban Cidery, is a very unique and one of a kind Cider and eatery in Halifax. It is a very popular local establishment and for very good reasons.
The food and cider tasting was – Superb!
There’s a huge selection of ciders available to choose from, along with craft beer, wine and non-alcoholic choices.
We enjoyed tasting their popular – Hoppin’ Bitter Berry Cider. A base blended with; cranberry and raspberry wine. Aged on strawberry lees mixed with Centennial hops.
We also tried the – Synthecyser. A blend of Foundation & honey wine. Floral & honey aromatics.
We sampled some delicious – Southern Fried Chicken with UK Apple Slaw. This dish was incredible, exploding with flavour!
A perfect match and pairing with your favorite chosen beverage.
We were also treated to – 🥥 Coconut Curry Spice Krispies. Another very special and unique item from their “unchained kitchen” menu.
It’s no wonder this place is packed throughout the day. Everything was delicious! 🙂
Time to move on to our next stop and another local 💎 hidden gem located in an historic section of town.
At this eatery, we sampled some of the best gourmet 🍕 pizza we have ever experienced and trust me, we’ve tried a lot of different pizza over the years!
With freshly prepared dough and specialty ingredients, you simply cannot get enough of this fabulous pizza.
Just another great stop on this food tour, that you will absolutely love!
Our next visit was on to the nightclub zone of the City, along with its numerous eateries. One of the most favorite in the area is – 🌯 Johnny K’s Donairs.
“We have gone back to the origins of making a true authentic donair, in-house, using the original recipe that made the donair world famous.”
Outstanding freshly prepared 🌯 Donairs, that were just mouth watering.
Full of flavour and dripping with sauce, they were exceptionally good!
This tour really gives you the opportunity to visit some outstanding local favorite hidden gems, that you would not normally discover on your own.
Just one of the many great reasons to take a food tour when traveling to new destinations.
Last on the list and for a taste of upper scale class, we moved on to – 🍹 The Mercantile Social.
This is an upscale Kitchen, Cocktails & Wine establishment in the City. A casual, but a more fine dining and drinking establishment located right downtown.
Patrick had us sample a couple of Nova Scotia’s very own 🍷 wines. A taste of their specialty red and white.
As well, we were treated to a cup of freshly prepared seafood chowder. A perfect ending to this wonderful tour!
Our guide Patrick, was outstanding and a lot of fun!
The food and drink sampling was delicious and if all the food we tasted wasn’t enough, he had a special gourmet 🍩 doughnut treat for us as we said our goodbyes! 🙂
