Toronto’s Best Sandwiches: the lobster roll at The Happy Hooker


Published:

 

"Feelin’ fancy? Have some lobster." The phrase, scrawled on a sidewalk sandwich board, lures pedestrians up a handful of stairs and into The Happy Hooker. Serving up sustainable seafood to the Dundas West crowd, the suggestively-named eatery turns out tasty dishes devoid of frills: fish ’wiches, shrimp corn dogs, and yes, a catalog of fish tacos. However come the weekend, things are amped up a notch.

The lobster roll is casual–fancy ($13.50). Big hunks of fresh East Coast lobster shack up with tiny celery cubes amidst a slathering of mayo and a sprinkling of celery salt. The mess is piled into a (lightly) toasted and (heavily) buttered white Wonder Bread bun and deemed ready to eat. 

The only downfall? Chances are, you’ll want more than one. 

The Happy Hooker, 887 Dundas St. W., 647-769-4243
