A Fall Night Out!

There's something I really really love about Halifax. There are fantastic restaurants, stores and gorgeous sites to see. 

Last night, Mark and I hurried to downtown Halifax for a night on the town. We walked around everywhere, enjoying the amazing weather and the city-life atmosphere. 

We found a little friend on our adventure!

After going in and out of a few stores, we were starving and decided to go to Durty Nellys pub. Mark grabbed a drink and I got a sparkling water. We wanted a delicious and indulgent appetizer for a meal so we got rustic potato chips. It was almost like fresh BBQ potato chips with bacon, spring onions and cheese. So so good!

By the time we were done eating and enjoying the friday night buzz of the restaurant, we wanted dessert. I had seen a new `desserterie` and bar had opened on Barrington Street and we decided to make our way down there. 

The Middle Spoon is an amazing place! It`s super chic and cozy, with tea lights everywhere and fancy leather furniture. We had a great server who explained to us that all the drinks were made from scratch and fresh, so it takes a little longer for them to be made. (So worth it!) And that the desserts were made from scratch each morning. 

Mark got a fabulous root beer float drink (yes, it was a cocktail and so fabulous!) and I got aphrodite`s weakness, a super sweet martini with raspberries and it was the best drink I have ever had!

Then we ordered dessert. A sharable size sundae, with cake balls in it. The cake balls were chocolate cake mixed with butter cream icing and coated in chocolate. This is the absolute best dessert I have ever had in my life. And Mark definitely did too.  

The Middle Spoon is one place I definitely recommend, and I do plan on going there again. I would go there right this second if I could! Honest!

I hope everyone had a great weekend!

Until next time,
