10 things you can eat in Saint John that aren’t dulse.

August 10, 2015


It’s not that we hate dulse. In fact, we think it’s really awesome. But there are many other scrumptious (and more filling) delicacies in Saint John that you can brag to your friends back home about.

1) THE NEWFIE STEAK SANDWICH FROM PORT CITY ROYAL

Port City Royal prides itself on taking East Coast cuisine to the next level. Boy, do they ever.

2) PAN SEARED BLACKENED ATLANTIC HALIBUT FROM BRITT’S PUB AND EATERY

3) BARBECUED PULLED PORK SANDWICH FROM PEDDLERS CREEK

If you’re craving BBQ done right, check out Peddlers Creek in Quispamsis (just outside the city). They also have an outpost location uptown in Brunswick Square.
You. Are. Welcome.

4) SEARED SEA SCALLOPS FROM DECIMAL 81

Say that 5 times really fast.

5) LOBSTER ROLLS FROM SAINT JOHN ALE HOUSE

Like dulse, lobster is famously associated with our province.
If you’re going to do it, do it right! They literally shuck a 2 lb lobster and use all of the meat in each giant lobster roll.

6) TACO AL PASTOR FROM TACO PICA

HOW COULD YOU NOT? Just look at this!

It’s an awfully good falafel.

8) BURGERS FROM CHURCHILL’S BAR AND PUB

Sometimes, you just need a good burg. Here, you can trick it out however you want. For real.

9) BUTTER CHICKEN FROM THANDI

It’s ok. You can lick your screen. We won’t judge.
