Searching for a new place to live in the city can be a daunting task, especially when you pretty much have no idea what on God’s green earth you are doing. It is also a tad tiring and rather nerve-wracking.
Which is why there is no better remedy than a delicious sandwich from a packed deli in Kensington Market. We first heard of Sanagan’s Deli when we went to Voodoo Child, it is where they source their meats from. And based on what we had there, we were just dying to go to Sanagan’s.
We made the mistake of going there on a Saturday. The place was packed! Thankfully there were two separate lines, one for the deli counter, one for the tiny sandwich counter. It was an easy choice sandwich-wise, despite the large menu. I had the special which was bbq’ed beef cheeks with coleslaw. Brent had the steak with sauce. You can’t go wrong with meat on a bun and some sauce. No veggies in sight! The fries on the side were delicious, I was wary of the sprinkling of chives, but the bits were so small it did not add much.
Some days it is nearly impossible to have lunch without dessert. Brent pointed out that they were selling maple bacon donuts, but I instead suggested going back to Fancy Frank’s for there mini-donuts made fresh to order. Again there was a clear choice in terms of flavour: lemon. They were outstanding, hands-down better than Tiny Tom’s. They almost hold a mini-candle to Glory Hole Donuts. The donuts were drizzled with lemon sauce and so delicious.
On our way up to Fancy Frank’s I noticed that the new place offering wood-fired bagels was finally opened and I insisted on going in to get a bagel. This is after eating a meaty sandwich, on our way to getting mini-donuts mind you. It was a good bagel, but not as good as the ones served at Caplansky’s (still the best bagel in the city).
