Hello!

My girlfriend and I will be traveling to Nova Scotia this week and are looking for food recommendations. I am most interested in hearing about food that is unique to (or best experienced) in Nova Scotia - our guide book mentions rappie pie, Digby chicks, also looking forward to lobster rolls, fish and chips, french fry street carts etc. Is there other Acadian cuisine? I've read some of the other postings regarding fine dining options in Halifax and elsewhere - we both live in DC now and have ample access to those kind of places. I am looking more for casual, fresh and interesting food - roadside stands rather than the white-tablecloth-and-wine-list experience.

Our likely route will be a couple days in Halifax, then down the southern coast, over to Digby and up to Cape Breton time permitting. But the whole province is fair game for eating as far as we are concerned.

Also - I am a pie-fanatic, so if there is anywhere that makes good pie, please clue me in!

Thanks!
