St. Lawrence Market in Toronto, Canada
The first time I was in Toronto I couldn't make it to St. Lawrence Market because it's closed on Sundays and Mondays. Today however, my hotel was just a five-minute walk from the place. So after dropping off my bags, it was a no-brainer on where I was going for lunch (92 Front Street East, 416-392-7219).
The first thing that I had to get of course was Toronto's peameal bacon sandwich. When I first bit into it, it didn't seem anything in that interesting and frankly was rather dry. It was only halfway through the sandwich did the thought occur to me: were all of those squeeze bottles that I saw on the counter at Carousel Bakery for the sandwich? I threw in some dijon mustard, horseradish, and pickled peppers, and suddenly the thing totally lit up! It was now delicious and fun to eat.
I still needed a bit more food though, and there seemed to be lots of Ukrainian vendors around the market. I grabbed some pierogi dumplings, some cabbage rolls, and some kind of meat roll things that I don't know the name of. It all pretty much tasted like it looked except those meat rolls or other salty and tough. I didn't mind it though; I don't think I've ever had Ukrainian food before.
