Can a restaurant be considered good even if not everything they do is good? Can the strong dishes make up for the crappy ones? I really wanted to have a good time at Zipang Provisions, but things didn’t quite gel. Continue reading Bit of a rocky dinner at Zipang Provisions
I’ve talked about the miracle of food trucks at Brassneck before, and this time I tried Guanaco, the Salvadorean food truck. Continue reading Guanaco Truck at Brassneck: Awesome Cassava Fries
Wandered into The Portside Pub while waiting for Alibi Room to open on a Thursday afternoon and saw that they changed their menu to a more Nova Scotia-focused one.

Inspired by this thread on Chowhound, I had to check out the reincarnated Refuel Dirty Burger at Upstairs at Campagnolo, the newly-opened upstairs speakeasy/lounge/bar next to Campagnolo on Main St. I never got to try the original Refuel burger…so with no point of comparison, does the Dirty Burger at Upstairs taste good?
