Toronto’s Best Sandwiches: Getting a slice of fall comfort food at Cut the Cheese

It goes without saying that Cut The Cheese is all about the cheese. This relatively new Junction take-out spot has put the city's other finest grilled cheese purveyors — The Grilled Cheese and Cheesewerks — to the test. A concise menu is split between the aforementioned sandwich and the other comfort food that’s doused in cheese: mac ’n’ cheese. We fell for The Harvest ($8.45) — the most popular vegetarian-friendly ’wich.

For this autumnal affair, butternut squash is oven-roasted and mixed with garlic and herbs before marrying caramelized onions between slices of COBS sourdough bread (patrons have the choice of sourdough, light rye, pumpernickel or gluten free). An apple-celery remoulade — based around their house tarragon mayo — and balsamic glaze help cut through the sweetness. As for the most crucial component, a duo of cheeses add that gooey factor: the Fontina, a semi-soft cows milk cheese, hails from Denmark while the Emmental has Swiss roots and provides a hint of nuttiness.

Served with some savoury spiced popcorn, this meal is fall comfort food at its finest. Just don’t get hooked on the Emmental like Kim Jong-un.
