Toronto’s Best Sandwiches: the fried chicken thigh from This End Up

Having recently celebrated its first birthday, Little Portugal’s This End Up has made a name around the ’hood for both its sandwiches and cocktails. The homey eatery keeps patrons returning thanks to its hefty portions, laid-back atmosphere and popular daily specials.

Our pick however, is a menu staple: the fried chicken thigh sandwich ($13). It’s not something that everyone instantly notices, but those who love it are hardened devotees, threatening to revolt should it ever leave the menu.

Using boneless chicken leg, the meat is deep-fried and loaded onto a white roll from SanRemo bakery. Pickled celery and carrot — done in-house — along with a handful of organic arugula top the meat, while two sauces provide the finishing touches: the gochujang wing sauce and the blue cheese mayo, a medley of Roquefort and Danish blue.

The meal comes with either fries or a salad — or both for an extra $2.50, making it big enough to share.

This End Up, 1454 Dundas St. W., 647-347-8700
