So a little while ago, we blogged about wanting to head to Midtown Tavern down by Grafton St, and that we did.
It's nothing too fancy. I suppose its just the atmosphere and the decor that makes it unique. The food was just ok. But being there and sitting there sorts of finally put you in the presence of dining in an all-American fish and chips cum steak kind-of diner, the one that Archie and Friends (Jughead, Veronica, Betty and Reggie) would hang out after classes - if you know what I mean.
We ordered the steak with fries. I preferred it well-done but after that, I am guessing that it would probably have been better if I had asked it to be rare or medium-rare.
But our winning price would go to the beer!! - Alexander Keith's draught. By my taste buds at least I would say its better than Tiger or even Calsberg. If beer was like this back home, I suppose I would have ordered more.
All in all the damage was CAD 15 inclusive of tax. The beer costs CAD 3 only which was a fair price.
On the way back, we stumbled upon the brewery. Appearently it has also been made a tourist attraction. From what I heard, the maker of the beer was quite a prominent fella in Halifax back in the old days. You actually have to pay to have a tour of the brewery. But we didn't go for that. Probably would wait till you guys come visit us before we go along with the gang. So who's up to come to Halifax??? You know how to contact us!! **wink**wink**
