  • Jungle Jim's
    It’s hard to know where to look first upon walking into one of Jungle Jim’s two-dozen locations. Nearly every inch of wall space overflows with such safari-themed accoutrements as palm fronts, bamboo poles, colored lights, and a tiki bar. Although the restaurant aims to transport families to an exotic tropical wonderland, the huge menu is stuffed with familiar favorites designed to appeal to nearly every kind of diner. Chicken panini wraps and zesty buffalo wings swing quickly from the kitchen, but for more ceremonious occasions there are also a number of upscale, steakhouse-style options. A favorite is the St. Louis-style Rhino Ribs, a heft half-rack made sticky with honey garlic or barbecue sauce. Alongside such decadence, the special Slim Jim menu showcases entrees with 550 calories or fewer, such as pan-seared tiger shrimp and grilled chicken salad. Kids can dig into smaller portions on their own menu—which, once they’ve decided between alfredo pasta and animal-shaped chicken nuggets, they can fold into a tiki-style mask.

  • Tatamagouche Railway Dining Car
    Built in 1928, the renovated passenger car that now serves as Tatamagouche Railway Dining Car whisked travellers to and fro on the Canadian National Railway. These days, it stays stationary while taste buds do all the travelling during lunches and dinners every summer and autumn. The kitchen specializes in steak and seafood entrees—such as lemon-dill salmon—that complement the veggies and edible, pesticide-free flowers grown in the restaurant's private garden. The dining car is part of the Train Station Inn at the 19th-century Tatamagouche Station, whose other railways cars now serve as bed-and-breakfast suites.

  • May Garden Restaurant
    In 1976, Glen and May Young established the first May Garden Restaurant?a tiny take-out restaurant fixed along Beaverbank Road in Lower Sackville. Just under two decades later, Glen and May's nephew, Eric, bought the restaurant, and has since reproduced the success of the original mom-and-pop shop at two other locations. Eric quickly expanded May Garden to a second location in Bedford, then a third in Dartmouth. Even with that continued growth, the original restaurant sticks to its roots. When Eric bought the first May Garden in 1993, he retained the original open-kitchen policy so diners could watch chefs tangle with dancing flames as they fry Dop Woey Almond Ding or do the moonwalk after they form the perfect eggroll. Guests get a front-row seat as the varied menu blooms into colourful dishes, including curries, Szechuan offerings, and chef specialties.

  • Curly Portables Pub & Grill
    facet: Main type: Traditional locale: en_CA title: Curly Portable's facet_type_id: 1b4e4f50-5f42-1032-bf1b-0e8c36fbc6ca html_text: |- In 45 minutes, finish a 2-pound Nova Scotia beef burger and 1 pound of potato skins smothered in cheese and bacon. Those are the conditions of the Man vs. Food challenge at Curly Portable's, which awards its small club of victors with a T-shirt and eternal glory. The Man vs. Food feast is Curly Portable's biggest by far, though the rest of the pub's menu likewise caters to heartier appetites. Haddock arrives atop baked potato; mushrooms fried in garlic butter cover housemade 8-ounce burgers; and beef, turkey, and veggies all simmer in the Lumberjack Pie's meat sauce. Meals unfold amid lumberjack-themed decor and numerous framed historical pictures. On Friday and Saturday, dinners segue into evenings of live entertainment with acts such as DJs and bands.

  • Classic Fish & Chips Ltd
    Relying on old-fashioned methods of food preparation, the crew at Classic Fish and Chips LTD prepares just about everything on the menu by hand and in-house. Cabbage is shredded right there in the kitchen before being mixed into coleslaw, and fresh potatoes are sliced into slivers for french fries. The fryers sizzle with fish and scallops covered in fresh-made batter. The throwback vibe extends to the decor. Classic movie posters from the 1950s and ‘60s hang on the walls, and a vintage-style jukebox pumps out tunes and subliminal messages urging patrons to vote for Adlai Stevenson.

  • Off The Grill
    The food at Off The Grill comes out fast, but it isn't prepared that way. The chefs at this family-owned barbecue joint slow-cook racks of ribs for hours, and finish off chicken by grilling it and slathering it in barbecue, honey garlic, or sweet chili sauce. But rather than simply eating it all themselves, the staff divvies its meats up into more shareable places—between artisan buns, for instance, or served on combo plates. Vegetarians can join the feasting with veggie wraps and signature salads, and everyone can pacify sweet cravings while sipping milkshakes made with premium ice cream.
