What to Eat in Halifax

Seafood, seafood, seafood. If you love the bounty of the sea, Halifax is heaven. Lobster, salmon, scallops and other fish can be found on menus everywhere, prepared in every way imaginable, from traditional seafood chowder to lobster tacos. The donair, a pita stuffed with shaved-and-spiced beef, topped with a sweet sauce made from condensed milk, is a local favorite. A popular spot to sample local fare is at the Seaport Farmers Market, one of the oldest farmers markets in North America. And if you want your meal with a side of great views, head to the waterfront for tons of cafe, bar and restaurant options.
