Hey guys! I’m blogging from Halifax right now! This afternoon my mom and I flew out to spend the next few days here with my sister and her boyfriend. We’re going to be helping them move houses, touring the city, and visiting a ton of amazing restaurants! Then my mom, sister and I are going to drive back home through Maine, Massachusetts, and New York, with a bunch of restaurant stops along the way. It’s basically going to be a week of eating – can you tell we’re a family of foodies? ;)
We kicked off our restaurant tour tonight with a stop at Estia Restaurant, which is claimed to be the best Greek food in Halifax! Considering how much I love Mediterranean food, I was really excited to eat here.
To start they brought out some bread with an amazing olive oil-based dipping sauce. The bread was good, but the dipping sauce was amazing. The restaurant actually sells it by the bottle for $18, so we bought one to take home. I can’t wait to use it on everything!
For my meal I went with the classic chicken souvlaki. It came with Greek salad, lemon roasted potatoes, rice and tzatziki, but I had a double Greek salad instead of rice. Everything was delicious and I cleaned my plate!
It was a great start to the week and I can’t wait for the rest of it! We’ve got some more amazing restaurants planned for tomorrow, so I’ll be back again tomorrow night with a post!
When you go on trips, do you pre-plan where you’re going to eat or do you wing it?
What’s your favourite Greek food?
