Toronto’s Best Sandwiches: a delightfully messy take on the bo ssäm from Sanagan’s Meat Locker

Ever since Peter Sanagan up and moved his Meat Locker to a bigger and better space, he’s been able to quadruple his carnivore-directed offerings. Now, in addition to options like Crown Salumi — chef Grant van Gameren’s boutique line of cured meats — the butcher also has space for terrine, pâtés, soups and grab ‘n’ go sandwiches.    

Our pick is the most popular sandwich: the bo ssammy ($7). A take on the Korean bo ssäm — in which steamed pork is wrapped in a lettuce leaf — Sanagan’s version stars either whey-fed or Mennonite-raised Ontario pork. Rubbed in a mélange of gochujang and ssamjang and left overnight, the meat is then braised for a few hours until it falls off the bone.

Topped with a slaw of purple cabbage, carrot and kimchi, and dressed in some green onion mayo, the messy package is tucked into either a white or multigrain bun from Cobs next door — the only buns, Sanagan says, that are able to effectively sop up all the juices.

This one you may just want to eat in-house.

Sanagan’s Meat Locker, 176 Baldwin St., 416-593-9747
