I was there in 2014 but I’m still thinking of two places: 2 Doors Down in Halifax (we liked it so much that we ate there twice in three days) and some place with a deck right on the water in Cape Breton (I can’t remember where) that had a lobster club sandwich that almost made me cry, it was so good. I want to say it was somewhere in the neighborhood of Baddeck, but I can’t be sure. I also had the most disgusting pizza I’ve ever had—“donair” pizza (again, can’t recall where but that’s probably a good thing). The sauce was full of sugar. Literally threw away the rest of an entire pie after eating two pieces.
I also remember having a lobster sandwich on a patio on Cape Breton. I can’t remember if it was a Club, but it was a sandwich rather than a lobster roll. The one I had was at a restaurant close to the Alexander Graham Bell Museum.
That’s Halifax donair sauce that was on the pizza , which contains sugar and evaporated milk. I like it, but it’s probably an acquired taste.
There are only a couple places in Toronto that serve Halifax-style donair with the sweet sauce. I used to be able to order it at a food court in the 80s in Ontario.
(I also like Turkish-style and Berlin-style donair. I like all donair/doner)
