Every once in a while, food will leave me speechlessly scraping the crumbs off my plate. The Bicycle Thief, Halifax’s best restaurant, is incredible. I’ll just let these dishes speak for themselves.
First off: Ripassa red wine and fresh baked focaccia bread with red pepper hummus
The starter (and my favourite dish): tuna tartare with avocado and lemon aioli
Mains: Beef shortrib with sweet potato puree and seasonal vegetables
Saffron scallop risotto with fresh parmigiana cheese
Dessert: “Life-changing” (according to my waitress, and it’s so totally true) butterscotch caramel cake. Oh, my god.
Ever since my first visit, The Bicycle Thief has been my favourite restaurant in Halifax. It simply cannot be beat!
