Toronto’s Best Sandwiches: the lamb kofta wrap from Brick Street Bakery
Located right by the Distillery District’s front gates, the Brick Street Bakery has been wooing Torontonians since 2001. Known for its selection of baked treats, the homey space is filled with the scent of just-out-of-the-oven bread, which includes picks such as warm croissants and basil ‘n’ parsley loaves. Though there are now four locations around town, we still think that the original trumps the rest.
We opted for the only wrap on the menu ($8), which manager Kennedy Cullen says is a little bit lighter than the other picks. Starring lamb kofta — delivered by a local butcher daily — the meat is paired with fennel slaw, smothered in horseradish-infused kofta mayo and rolled up smartly in a tortilla wrap.
Bookend the lunch with a hazelnut-studded Csaba tart ($2.50) while surveying the cobblestoned scene from a table out front.
