Toronto’s Best Sandwiches: The Lakeview’s Corn Flake chicken sandwich

Just voted the city’s best diner by readers of NOW Magazine, The Lakeview Restaurant woos night owls and early birds both. Always open — as the front window proclaims smartly in neon — the retro diner has all the fittings one would hope for: black and white floors, snug booths and vintage tunes. Those dreaming of the past can wolf down a classic burger and slurp on a root beer float while eyeing their favourite Betty by the bar.

We tucked into the Corn Flake chicken sandwich ($10). Breaded with — that’s right — Corn Flakes, a hefty portion of fried chicken hugs slices of cheddar cheese and is topped with the traditional fixings: lettuce, onion and tomato. Smothered in the house barbecue sauce, the sandwich is served on a sesame bun alongside fresh-cut fries and a pile of organic greens for good measure.

The Lakeview Restaurant, 1132 Dundas St. W., 416-850-8886

First Draught: Lorraine is another delicious adventure for Amsterdam

Lorraine, the latest release from Amsterdam Brewery's Adventure Series, was brewed as a Lichtenhainer, a German style you probably haven’t tried, that combines a dose of smoked wheat malt and a subtle souring. Amsterdam and Nickel Brook, their collaboration partner for Lorraine, decided to age this beer in Cabernet Franc barrels for four months.
