Toronto’s Best Sandwiches: the burger from Brock Sandwich


Published:

We’ve raved about the Brock Sandwich offerings before. Since opening last summer, the place has extended their hours (until 9 p.m. from Monday to Saturday) and added a delivery option (Hurrier, but of course). Matt Gregoris, Dom Amaral and Peter Ornelas — former minions of Susur — hold down the fort, and are therefore well-versed in flavour combos that will impress those looking for something more spectacular than your average ’wich.

In addition to the rotating sandwich menu, there’s now a burger on offer. The patty is crafted with three types of beef — chuck, short rib and brisket — which is ground and seasoned only with salt ($10 with fries). Cooked on a flat top, the meat’s served still-pink on the inside, with a slice of provolone slapped on top to melt it just-so. After being flipped over (“It holds the juices in,” notes Gregoris), the patty is placed on a Silverstein’s bun where it’s finished with some lettuce, slivers of red onion, house-smoked tomato jam and pickled mustard seed mayo, making for a burger that’s got some sweet smoky depth.

Keep your eyes peeled for them at Beerfest come summer, when their high-impact sandwiches will act as delicious vessels for suds-sopping.

Brock Sandwich, 1260 Bloor St. W., 647-748-1260
