Ace Burger Co.

Relish Gourmet Burgers
Burgers are meant to be relished – to be savoured, truly enjoyed, and covered with all manner of toppings. Relish Gourmet Burgers is the brainchild of Chef Ray Henry, who tired of flat, bland, inedible hamburgers and longed for something greater. Bask in the glory of Relish’s burgers by first choosing your own patty: 100% Alberta beef, ground turkey, or vegetarian. Then let your imagination run wild as you indulge in one of Relish’s adventurous themed burgers, from “L.A. Is My Lady” with avocado and goat cheese to the Halifax Explosion featuring Habañero pineapple and curried onion frites.
Originally named “My Other Brother Darrell’s” after a catchphrase from the 1980s sitcom Newhart, Darrell’s Resto blazed the trail for gourmet burgers in Halifax. They solidified their reputation as having one of the best burgers in town with their specialty, the Peanut Butter Burger, a surprise hit. They even serve a “Birthday Cake Edition”: one 4 ½ lb burger fashioned as a birthday cake. Darrell’s has won The Coast’s Best of Food Awards in the category of Best Burger in Halifax for a decade running.
