Jamie has already helped me find two amazing condos in Yorkville, and I look very forward to working with him again in the future.
Centred on the lively intersection of Yonge Street and St. Clair Avenue, Deer Park is an upscale neighbourhood that mostly attracts professional families. It combines upper-middle-class comfort with stunning natural beauty. The neighbourhood is not only one of Toronto’s busiest …(Deer Park Neighbourhood Central Toronto continued…)
Porchetta & Co.
Bathurst & Dundas
825 Dundas St W., Toronto ON
If you need a quick lunch and are able to head over to Dundas and Palmerston, do so, because the treat is well worth the trip.
Porchetta & Co. Sandwiches only recently opened up, but they’ve already made a hit of their signature dish, porchetta. If you haven’t heard about porchetta until now, don’t worry. Even though there are a few steps to take in, the dish is a fairly simple one conceptually: it’s basically a carnivore’s dream come true.
First, a pork shoulder is marinated for a day in various spices including rosemary and sage, then wrapped in succulent prosciutto. It’s then wrapped again (!), this time in cured pork belly, and put in an oven to slow roast for hours.
When you step into the tiny sandwich bar, they pull out the roasted meat, put a few slices on a fresh sourdough bun from the bakery across the street, and serve it up. The sandwiches are quick and simple — and absolutely delicious.
It’s a fantastic place to grab an inexpensive lunch, with the sandwich costing only about $6, and the option of adding a side like baked romano beans or roasted potatoes for a total of $10. For so little money, I have to say, I felt very full of delicious food. Like the food itself, the venue is pretty simple. It’s set up as your typical sandwich place, with a few bar stools and some friendly guys behind the counter. It’s nothing extravagant, but it works.
So, if you’re like me and enjoy pork — or just crunchy, delicious, organic meat at all — you really ought to stop in at Porchetta & Co. Sandwiches.
