Introducing: Dundas Park Kitchen, a new takeout sandwich shop in Roncesvalles
Name: Dundas Park Kitchen
Contact Info: 2066 Dundas St. W., 647-351-4793, dundasparkkitchen.ca/, @DundasPark
Owners/Chefs: Husband-and-wife team Alex Tso, former head chef at Amuse in the Beach, and Melanie Harris, pastry chef at Aria next to the ACC
The Food: Soups, salads and sandwiches, like marinated eggplant on focaccia with squash hummus, olive salad and onion jam. Take-out dinners consist of whole roast chickens with sides like chickpea salad and coleslaw. Homemade cookies, cakes and galettes for dessert.
The Drinks: Juices, sodas and Beau’s Lug Tread beer on draught.
The Place: The diminutive space feels like a workshop, with its open kitchen, bare concrete walls and exposed air ducts. Seating is limited to a cluster of wooden blocks by the window.
