Toronto’s Best Sandwiches: Two Bite Saloon’s tofu sliders

When Two Bite Saloon first opened, it was mostly about the meat. There was meat in the kale salad, meat in the beans, and meat, well, on the ribs. Out front, a stuffed baby buffalo demonstrated the place’s love for the stuff. But despite chef Nathan Jones’ carnivorous touch, he is more than game for a tofu challenge.

Although Two Bite’s tofu sliders ($10 for three) aren’t the top sellers (that would be the pulled pork sliders), they slowly are gaining a following. Jones smokes slabs of bean curd, marinates them in a bath of maple syrup, apple cider vinegar and chipotle, then deep-fries them. After being tossed the in the house barbecue sauce, the tofu is tucked into slider buns and topped with a house-made dill pickle.

Carnivores be warned: you may become tofu converts.

Two Bite Saloon, 840 Bloor St. W., 416-536-8682
