I unknowingly woke up into sandwich day. It started when I was walking by a store window where the new Saveur magazine was on display. Saveur is probably my favourite food magazine–I love the feeling that if I read a full years subscription I would be the savviest foodie on the block. I haven’t yet subscribed because I fear a pile up of unread issues will trigger massive foodie-anxiety. (Only a subscription to The New Yorker is more terrifying in potentially magnifying my ignorance….of everything.)
BTW Canadians–the last issue had a great piece on Quebec and the maple syrup tradition (The Sweet Life) by Sasha Chapman. And the sap is now running so get out there and lick it up.
Back to sandwich serendipity: on my way home I stumbled across the Yorkville Sandwich Box location. I have not eaten at Sandwich Box since it was a little store inside a strange little food strip at McCaul and Queen. But man–the memories! Grilled, hot, crispy, gooey, savoury, sweet, grilled, spicy…..oh the land of sandwiches. I went with white panini (sometimes whole grain is not the right choice) smoky grilled eggplant, crisp pancetta, bocconcini and curried apple spread. I think I ripped the box in my excitement to get to the food. And as after any great sandwich, I simply felt…happy.
So sandwich it up today people! It’s meant to be.
