Four of Toronto’s best sandwiches

Four of Toronto’s best sandwiches

Is it just us, or has the humble sandwich conquered every menu in the city? Below, four tasty picks from this year’s sandwich invasion

TOMATO, MOZZARELLA AND PESTO
Negroni’s panini deliver a punch, much like the cocktail this College Street spot is named for. Fresh from the press, slow-roasted tomatoes, buffalo mozzarella and pesto are all warm and melting between slices of golden-striped ciabatta. $12. Negroni.

PORCHETTA
Down-home cookin’ doesn’t usually come with fancy flourishes like rapini. Nostalgia junkies can sip black cherry cola between bites of luscious porchetta—or whichever tender pulled meat (pork or chicken) is left over when the crowd diminishes. $10.50. The Stockyards Smokehouse and Larder.

PHILLY CHEESE STEAK
Sorry, lettuce and tomatoes, the meat’s in charge at this late-night King West joint. The Philly cheese steak is the perfect post-bar fortifier: a generous stack of juicy meat, sharp cheese and baguette. $7.75. Reggie’s Old Fashioned Sandwiches.

LOBSTER BLT
This sammie is worthy of a Seine-side picnic, but patrons settle for the benches at Commerce Court. The lobster BLT comes loaded with smoked tomato relish and mayo-moistened Nova Scotia lobster. The milk bread proves why Toronto swoons for Thuet’s baking. $12, in season. Petite Thuet.
