Love lift us up

The Coast - - FOOD + DRINK -

When Waf­fle Love turned off its iron last Oc­to­ber, it wasn’t be­cause it wanted to. The sale of its Hy­dro­s­tone build­ing left the busi­ness own­ers lo­ca­tion­less—un­til now. “I think we saw every re­tail space in Hal­i­fax,” says coowner Ania Benko. This Fri­day she and Matt Webb will re-open their sweet lit­tle restau­rant at 2082 Got­tin­gen Street (next door to Field Guide) at 9am. “Food has al­ways been a big thing for me and my sib­lings, we’d sneak out to fast food places without my par­ents know­ing. They were re­ally old fash­ioned,” says Benko of why she got into the restau­rant world. The se­cond it­er­a­tion of Waf­fle Love will be a lit­tle big­ger and a lit­tle more mod­ern, of­fer­ing an ex­panded se­lec­tion of pier­o­gis—which Benko’s been mak­ing “since I was born”—and the same waf­fle menu you fell for at the old lo­ca­tion. The folks at down­town Dart­mouth’s Souper Du­per Soup (156 Oc­ther­loney Street) are bow­ing down to ba­con this week­end. On Fri­day night from 4 to 8pm, the liq­uid lov­ing busi­ness and its friends will cel­e­brate the best meat with a Ba­con Ex­trav­a­ganza, a spe­cial event to round out a week-long ses­sion of serv­ing ba­con-in­spired dishes every day at Souper Du­per. Guests in at­ten­dance will in­clude the Clever Bar­keep with cock­tails, Still Fired Dis­til­leries, Hum­ble Pie (with steak and ba­con pies) and even ba­con-flavoured dog treats, cour­tesy of Kaycee’s Cre­ations and Two Paws Up, for your main squeeze. It’s a cash only event and, speak­ing of cash, don’t hog all of yours— Feed Nova Sco­tia will be on-site col­lect­ing dona­tions.
