AB Road Eats: Toronto


COFFEE

Dark Horse Espresso Bar: I downed a cortado and a flat white from this coffee bar. Why? Why not.

Jet Fuel Coffee Shop: Later on that day, I decided on one more jolt of caffeine. What can I say, I’m a sucker for a great logo.

LUNCH

St. Lawrence Market: If you don’t have much time in Toronto and can only hit one or two places, head to St. Lawrence Market. It’s incredible building housing countless food counters, including two famous for the peameal sandwich (Carousel Bakery and Paddington’s Pump). I had to try both. I won’t say which one I enjoyed more. I urge you get both and pick your favorite.

Banh Mi Boys: When you walk into this place, you might find yourself just staring at the menu board. I couldn’t choose so I ordered a banh mi, steamed bao and kimchi fries. Yes to all of them. Especially the kimchi fries.

COCKTAILS

Oliver & Bonacini: I truly enjoyed playing at the Sony Centre for the Performing Arts … the staff was just incredible. During intermission, they wanted to make sure I didn’t leave Toronto without trying their city’s famous cocktail, the Caesar. Imagine a bloody mary, but with clamato juice. It was damn good. A big thanks to everyone involved for making that happen.

    I believe Caesars are a Canadian thing, rather than a Toronto thing (being a resident of both the city and country) but I’m very glad you got the chance to try one – I highly recommend them. Your show at the Sony Centre for the Performing Arts that night was a fantastic!
