With a lot of stuff in tow:
Apparently we like to shop. And buy food. We may or may not have gone a little crazy buying American food products that we can’t get in Canada. But those are stories for another post.
Today I’m going to start from the beginning: last Wednesday, when mom and I flew out to Halifax to meet up with Hayley. The first thing we did was check into The Lord Nelson, which was awesome! The rooms were really nice and they were very accommodating when we requested a mini fridge and some down pillows. Also it was right next to a Goodlife gym, which made it convenient to work out in the mornings. I highly recommend this hotel if you’re ever in Halifax.
It was really tiny and had a small menu – which is almost always a sign of a good restaurant in my experience. And this restaurant proved me right again. Hayley and I split the two meat BBQ plate with pulled pork, beef brisket, cornbread and a choice of two sides – we chose the BBQ baked beans and mac & cheese plus an extra side of salad to get in some greens.
The mac & cheese was my least favourite – I found it to be a bit gritty – but I loved everything else! The meat was tender and flavouful and everything BBQed meat should be. And the cornbread was not too sweet, not dry, and not at all crumbly. In other words: perfect. I loved the baked beans too.
It was a great first meal to kick off our trip. Afterward we walked downtown and then went back to the hotel room to rest up for our busy day on Thursday. I’ll have a post about it up soon!
Have you ever been to Halifax?
