Hey all!

I am starting to compile a big list of unique foods, dishes, and institutions in the Halifax area. They don't have to be "good", just notorious. You know, legendary Halifax food items. I'll mention a few to get the ball rolling:

The Chickenburger

Ray's Falafel

Staff of Life samosas

Salvatore's original

Xtreme Pizza's thanksgiving pizza

Any ideas you have would be much appreciated. Thanks!

      To get the mussel bar, do you not need to eat a full meal there? I was thinking Press Gang's oyster bar...
