So, I drive a service vehicle and usually around 9 am I find myself somewhat peckish. I'm looking for great snack ideas that are easy to eat and drive at the same time.
Please don't bore me with Uncle Timmy's or any other chain stuff. I'm talking like getting a Banh Mi at Rose's or some of the goodies at the St. Lawrence Market.
I do have to limit my pickings to south of Eglinton, west of Leslie though.
The croissant stores on Mt. Pleasant, Jules and Celestin for croissants, pain au chocolat etc. Hillside bakery on Mt. Pleasant has great sandwiches, always freshly made on fresh, hand-sliced bread or buns for about $3.50. Falafels and shawarmas from a variety of spots, including King Falafel at Bathurst and Eglinton. I'm with you on Roses. I found another good bahn mi spot in Chinatown, from a CH rec, called Ba Le 2. Good bahn mi with amazing bread. It's just west of Spadina on Dundas. Have fun.
I should point out that I need to be able to park the truck and go in. China town can be rather tough for that.
The bakeries across the street from Rose Cafe on Broadview have good Chinese buns stuffed with BBQ pork or curried beef. I love those, and it's always a hard call which to choose...
I love the spring rolls at Rose's on Broadview...grab a few of those -easy to eat while driving (we ate almost 10 between 2 of us en route to the cottage!)...how about a crepe? I had one at "sandwiched" on Church, south of Carlton a while ago and it was satisying..though I am sure there are better places (in fact, I think a good one on Church NORTH of Carlton..name escapes)
