The Official Food Of Halifax

That’s right it has been made official!

The donair is the food of Halifax!

For years people have been coming to Nova Scotia, Halifax in particular to try the   sweet and savoury meat-lovers treat that is closely related to the Greek gyro.

Well, in a close tie,  the donair has been elevated to official food status in Halifax. Mayor Mike Savage broke a 7-7 tie yesterday, December 8 at Tuesday’s Halifax regional council meeting that declares the donair “Halifax’s Official Food”

It is suggested that the donair is to Halifax what the Smoked Meat sandwich is to Montreal, or the Beaver Tail is to Ottawa, as well as British Columbia’s Nanaimo bars and Quebec’s poutine and Saskatchewan’s Saskatoon Berry pie. If you are Canadian you recognize all these.

Yum! I love it! Soon time for a donair…

Adventure For Two

I am from Bridgewater, Nova Scotia, Canada and I'm back from traveling with my husband on an expat assignment to foreign lands. 2011-2012 we were in Shenyang, China. Spring 2012- Spring 2013 we were in Resende,RJ Brazil then back to Shenyang, China in July 2013 until the end of July 2014. Expat life WAS amazing! Adventure abounds no matter where we travel to. We really enjoyed the amazing opportunity to live and experience culture and tradition in these places. BUT now we are finished and adjusting to life in our small town in Canada. Our days of travel and adventure are not over.
