Reg Stag Tavern1496 Lower Water St, Halifax, NS B3J 1R9
The Red Stag, located in the old Keith’s Brewery, is known to make some of the best nachos downtown. The not-so-secret ingredients that elevate the flavour profile are caramelized onions and a drizzle of basil oil, along with the usual suspects – bell peppers, jalapeños, tomatoes and blended cheese. The Red Stag also uses fresh cooked chips and has house-made salsa. A similar recipe is made at The Lower Deck (which has the same owners).
