East Coast wrap stars: Toronto gets collectively obsessed with the Halifax-style donair

East Coast wrap stars: Toronto gets collectively obsessed with the Halifax-style donair

Canadian food is disgusting. As a nation, we are stoically proud of this fact. Few countries are as talented at taking gross food and making it even more gross than it was previously. We think tomato juice should have clam juice mixed into it. Our French fries come drenched in gravy, with cheese curds that squeak. And when a pita wrap is put into the hands of a Nova Scotian, it ends up drowned in a sauce that’s so sweet it simply defies common sense.

Dear sake: thank you for being awesome

One good thing about globalization is that the sake available in Toronto these days is no longer solely limited to the poorest examples of Japan’s national liquor. If the only sake you’ve ever tried has been the “house sake” at the nearest all-you-can-eat sushi joint, then you haven’t had sake. In honour of Kampai Toronto’s Festival of Sake, this evening at The Distillery District, we offer you seven reasons to make sake your drink of choice.

First Draught: two seasonal beers from Muskoka Brewery to bridge the gap between spring and summer

No one drinks rosé between October and April, but wine is otherwise less weather-dependent than beer. Already, two of my five First Draught posts have profiled seasonals — beers that breweries only make and sell at a certain time of year.

Modernist Cuisine at Home brings cooking arch-geekery to the home kitchen

The monolithic Modernist Cuisine: The Art and Science of Cooking a 50-pound, six-volume encyclopedia featuring 2,400 pages of elaborate cooking lore — will soon be adding another robust recipe-repository to its high-end cookbook family. Capitalizing on the surprising commercial success of its big brother, the upcoming Modernist Cuisine At Home moves away from the restaurant industry and towards the home kitchen, designed to “set a new standard for home cookbooks.”

Grand Electric opens its patio; getting into Grand Electric becomes moderately feasible

We’ve been eagerly awaiting the opening of Grand Electric’s patio for weeks now, and Corey Mintz reports that it finally happened over the past weekend. The restaurant’s 40-seat capacity — combined with sweet tacos — meant that wait times to get into the place often exceeded two hours. With the new patio, the capacity hits 100, and wait times are apparently down to 45 minutes or less.

Toronto’s Soho House: a five-point primer

Members of Toronto’s artsy elite are finally being offered a taste of international exclusivity. Come September, there’ll be no more need to slum it in public venues or to rub shoulders with the plebs. Why? Because Toronto is finally getting its very own Soho House, timed perfectly to coincide with this year’s TIFF festivities.

The project of chef/owner Noah Goldberg and general manager Mathieu Dutan, this new restaurant will see tables at Little Italy’s The Orbit Room decked out in butcher paper, wine glasses and pimped-out offal for the next six months or so.

Toronto’s Best Sandwiches: The County General’s fried chicken thigh sandwich

Queen West’s much-ballyhooed The County General serves up comfort fare fit for just about everyone — if you can snag a seat. Attracting an endless stream of noshers, the long ‘n’ lean eatery features a row of blonde wood tables decked out in homey blue-and-white gingham napkins. The space makes for a rather convivial dining experience, and by the end of it, you may have just buddied up with the kid to the left.

Feeling the heat? Make like Hemingway and cool off with a boozy Papa Doble (or twelve)

White rum is something I’ve barely touched since high school, when my rugged, juvenile iterations of the Cuba Libre — a generous helping of rum topped with a splash of Diet Coke and half a lime squished in for good measure — made it lose its lustre after one too many hellish hangovers. But trauma be damned, there’s one cocktail that inspires me to make an exception: the Papa Doble.

From Eve’s biblical breakfast blunder to Isaac Newton’s gravitationally-induced epiphany — even down to that sleek device buzzing away in your pocket — the apple as a cultural symbol has persisted for thousands of years. But while apples may remain symbolically fresh, their physical resilience has traditionally been less reliable. Until now.

Five Guys Burgers and Fries finally heads downtown

Big news for fast-food fanatics: beloved American burger chain Five Guys Burgers and Fries is making inroads into downtown Toronto and other areas of the city. After taunting our taste buds with the opening of a Scarborough location last year, as well as a number of locations circling the outskirts of the GTA, it seems that Five Guys is finally making the big leap downtown.

But now Toronto has a new player in the ramen scene: Kinton Ramen, opened last week in Baldwin Village, which aims to do away with the misconception of ramen as instant food that hails from plastic packages.

Housed in a hard-to-miss aquamarine storefront, the pint-sized resto focuses unsurprisingly on the fruits of the sea. Hwang grills up fresh fish and seafood to order, with a long list including the likes of catfish, tuna, snapper and scallops.

Tony Aspler’s Weekly Wine Pick: François Lurton Sauvignon de Bordeaux

This delicious wine is unlike any white Bordeaux I’ve tasted — it’s more like a cross between a Loire Valley Sancerre and a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. Pale straw, almost water white in colour, it has an upfront bouquet of gooseberry and grapefruit. These flavours expand on the palate to passion fruit and guava, ending with a crisp lemony finish.

Yet while the addition of 40 new stores is sure to get our retail juices flowing, we’re more excited about the plans for a brand new food court — or rather, a “food collection,” as the mall’s media reps would have you call it — which will provide a much needed revamp of the mall’s dining options.

Which is what he’s doing with it: slicing some of the best fish available in the city and placing those slices on a wooden slab.

The wicked ’wich of the East: the rise of the gourmet banh mi sandwich in Toronto

Not too long ago, I ate one of the slipperiest, drippiest, messiest sandwiches I’ve ever had. It was at a Financial District nook known as The Gabardine, wherein a fat French baguette was stuffed with pulled pork, raw onions, julienned carrots and kimchi. It was, apparently, an Asian fusion submarine sandwich known as the banh mi. It cost $14, sides included. To anyone planning on taking the plunge: bring a bib. Possibly two.

Simply put: “we wanted to offer the neighbourhood a pub,” Carter says, “where you can come for a pint, for a bite, with your family, wife or kids.”

Ask any Toronto bartender for their classic tipple of preference and there’s a good chance you’ll receive an answer that involves bitters and either whiskey or gin; Manhattans and Negronis, to be specific. If those two iconic cocktails spawned a love child, that nipper would be a beautiful thing, and chances are it would be very similar to a little-known drink called the Boulevardier.

If you’re a fan of Cabernet Sauvignon, you won’t want to miss this wine from Argentina’s Mendoza Valley. Dense purple in colour, it has a nose of crushed blackcurrants. The fruit is sweet and the balance is perfect. As it retails for just under $15, you might want to cellar a few bottles because this wine will improve in a couple of years when the tannins soften.

Focusing on the Singaporean street food found in hawker food courts, Hawker Bar is certainly a much more convenient option for downtowners than Restoran Malaysia at Major Mackenzie and Hwy 7.
