Toronto’s Best Sandwiches: a grilled seafood sandwich from Buster’s Sea Cove


Published:

Tucked away at the southern end of the St. Lawrence Market, Buster’s Sea Cove has been a neighbourhood go-to for years now. With a variety of seafood dishes available — which could feature halibut, tilapia, salmon, red snapper, octopus and more — fish fiends can get the catch of the day grilled up and made into a sandwich.

“You can come up, see what you like, and we’ll grill it for you in front of your eyes,” says owner Tom Antonarakis.

We went with the rainbow trout ($10). Procured from Manitoulin Island, a 7-8 oz slab of fish is marinated in olive oil, garlic and herbs before it hits the grill. A stack of thinly sliced tomatoes, cukes and red onion is perched atop some greens, and the whole lot is crammed into a grilled and toasted herb focaccia bun.

Loaded up with tartar sauce and chipotle mayo to boot, the sandwich comes with coleslaw and a wedge of lemon — more than enough to feed a famished office worker.

Buster’s Sea Cove, St. Lawrence Market, 93 Front St. E., 416-369-9048

It’s an Argentinian grill: the Argentinian tradition is to cook over a live fire of hardwood and Argentinian lump charcoal, which imparts a bit of a smoke undertone to the meat along with a charred crust that’s kissin’ cousin to crispy. Rather splendid.
