Eating out doesn't need to be expensive. While Halifax's food scene isn't as big as some other Canadian cities like Toronto or Vancouver, there's still a diverse range of cheap food spots to try. Recently, there have been quite a handful of new restaurants in Halifax where you can eat out without breaking your bank account.
If you are tight on cash, don't worry. With all the affordable dining options available in Halifax, you can still eat well for under $15. For example, at Brawta Jamaican Jerk Joint, you can devour a dinner of jerk chicken, rice, and coleslaw for only $10. And if you haven't already, you need to visit Yeah Yeahs Pizza with your friends where you can enjoy a slice of their cheesy pizza for under $5.
For those of you with a sweet tooth, make sure to visit Booza Emessa. Here, you can try traditional Syrian ice cream, which has a stretchy texture compared to regular ice cream. Another must-try spot is Vandal Doughnuts, where you can enjoy some of the best doughnuts in the city. Their flavours change daily, and they offer unique seasonal flavours, too.
