Food Friday: Dining at CheeseCurds

This Friday I bring to you another spotlight on a local Halifax restaurant… or in this case, a local Dartmouth restaurant. I've been holding this one in my back pocket for a while and since I am finishing up a big week away with very little at-home cooking to speak of, I thought what better time to introduce you to what is sure to be HRM hotspot for years to come.

Although gourmet burger joints aren't a be idea [and may actually be considered quite trendy as of late] they are "new to Halifax

After returning home from a trip to Montreal last April, a visit to the famous La Paryse and an insatiable appetite for all things gourmet burger, I was bummed to find there was no place in Halifax that could fill this void. Obviously I could grab a burger at one of our many [arguably too many] pubs or swing by Brooklyn Warehouse, but it wasn't the same. I wanted a restaurant that was all about burgers and wanted you to be all about burgers too. Well my friends, my prayers were answered - Cheesecurds has arrived.

In its first three days of operation, Cheesecurds served over 1400 customers, causing the restaurant to shut unexpectedly on their fourth day in business due to a sudden and swift depletion of any and all ingredients.

As happy as we were for their immediate success, Jack and I are not two people who like to wait around when it comes to sampling delicious new restaurants and we were beyond thrilled that we made it in for our inaugural visit on their second day of operation.

The staff were nice, the decor clean and crisp and the food delicious making the 50 minutes between placing our order and having our take-out in our hands worth every second.

I ordered the Honolulu burger, Jack got the C+C Porker and we split a poutine. Jack loved his burger. It was big, meaty and full of bacon - exactly what he looks for in a burger. I, on the other hand, was not as thrilled however, I do not hold this against the folks at Cheesecurds. Apparently I don't like warm pineapple and just never knew until I got the Honolulu burger. Also, I love thin burgers with piles of lettuce, sprouts, tomatoes and avocados; this was mostly meat. The poutine was delicious - not as delicious as Willy's, but really what is? Honestly, whether or not pineapple tainted my experience, this was great food with local ingredients and I can't wait to try it again!
