Halifax Meat Paste Egg Rolls!
Egg rolls are a funny thing in Canada - they vary wildly based on region. In most places, they’re wrapped the way described here, rather than the burrito-style wrapping that is common elsewhere.
In Ottawa, they’re cylindrical and mostly meat. One end is left open, and the meat spilling out gets very brown - those “burnt end” eggrolls are hugely popular!
In Halifax, it’s all about the meat paste egg rolls. Sure, there’s a small amount of vegetable matter in there... but it’s dwarfed and enveloped by the star of the show - meat!
