But I did have to share this one experience - a trip to Phil's Original BBQ for the best BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich and baked beans anywhere.
That's me enjoying a delicious lunch with my other daughter, Sharron. We took a break from packing, and came to one of my favorite Toronto haunts. The pulled pork, melts in your mouth. The sauce is tangy and you can have it mild or spicy. I like to mix them both together. And don't get me started on the baked beans...there are not enough superlatives to describe them. You'll just have to head over to College Street the next time you're in Toronto. I know I will.
And now we're officially in Halifax. We even have our Nova Scotia license plates on the car.
Whenever we came to Halifax for a visit we had to stop at Phil's Seafood for the best fish & chips I've ever had - honest! So good, in fact, that every time I'd book my flight out here, I'd tell my daughter to make sure our visit would include a trip to Phil's. Naturally, that was the first restaurant stop for me and my Honey. I know it will be a regular spot for lunch on our Saturday, errand day. We actually got to meet Phil himself and I can't wait to have a "Chat With" him.
Everything served is wonderful, but I must admit, I rarely order anything but the fish and chips. The haddock is flaky and juicy, never dry. Each giant filet is coated with a light but crispy breading that is never greasy. You could be more health conscious than we were and order a salad, but we wanted the full Phil experience - great cole slaw, perfect fries and lots of tartar sauce for the fish. Perhaps next time I'll order the fried clams or the fish cakes.
So now that we're establishing a new home here in Halifax, I still will have a local Phil's and one to visit when we go back to Toronto on frequent visits to see family and friends.
