Toronto’s Best Sandwiches: Delica Kitchen’s take on the ham and Swiss

Delica Kitchen has been tempting the uptown lunch crowd for over three years now. Sitting pretty near Yonge and St. Clair, this shrine to wholesome eats is Devin Connell’s first solo foray into the food biz. Inside, rows of freshly made sandwiches and daily soups are perfect for grabbing and going.

We fell for the Parisienne ($8.85). Stacking layers of The Butcher Shoppe’s smoked ham, along with thin slices of gruyère and slivers of Bartlett pear, the sandwich is finished with a smear of Dijon mustard and a touch of garlic aïoli. Everything is tucked into Ace Bakery’s white flute bread — which is made specifically for Delica Kitchen.

For those who need to end on a sweet note, dessert options include regular and wheat-free donuts from Paulette’s, the Leslieville eatery devoted to slightly more devilish fare. The spiced maple walnut ($2.75) is our favourite.

Delica Kitchen, 1440 Yonge St., 416-546-5408

The calories and fat are reasonable for a filling meal, but the sodium gives you three quarters of your daily intake in one sitting! Don’t go adding any kimchi fries on the side.

In Season: Mustard is more than just the top condiment at restaurants like Toronto’s Black Hoof

Canada is the world’s leading producer of mustard seeds. So this week, we’re veering west of Ontario to talk about how the yellow/honey/hot mustard plastered all over your late night hotdog (often my midday snack) probably started in the Prairies’ mustard fields.

Inside the world of AAA Bar, purveyor of Toronto’s most authentic Texas-style barbecue

Inside a corrugated tin lean-to near the corner of Gerrard and Broadview, you’ll find one of the most intense barbecue setups in the city. There, four Traeger grills operate nearly non-stop, slowly inundating beef, pork and chicken with oak smoke. Brisket and ribs emerge sheathed in crispy, candy-sweet bark, tinged deep pink beneath the surface.

We saw this coming — tasty Toronto restos have been going relentlessly downscale for several years. The vast majority of this year’s terrific new restaurants are casual and cheap. They can’t be judged against white tablecloth temples of gastronomy
