Veal Sandwich

Looking for a good italian veal sandwich in the Thornhill - Richmond Hill area,

  1. Nino D'Aversa (Yonge & Glen Cameron) has a Veal Sandwich that has a following. I like it, but I like others (discussed in another thread) better.

    On market days (Thursday-Saturday), there is a place in the York Farmer's Market that serves a veal sandwich, which is passable.

    Some days, Longos (Bayview & Laureleaf) will have veal cutlets at their hot counter, but not everyday.

    I'll throw out the names of a few other places that might have it, and let others confirm or deny: Wimpy's, Steve's, Il Fornelo and Weston Foods (Yonge south of Major Mac).

    I find it worth the trip to Panini in Woodbridge, Weston & 7.

      Panini in woodbridge has the BEST veal sandwiches. I highly recommend them.

        Panini's is a great find, I discovered it by accident and was surprised how much better it was than California Sandwiches (revered in my office to be the best).

    2. I haven't seen veal sandwiches at Weston Foods for a while. I like Old Mill bakery (Oxford Street, just west of Yonge, one light south of Elgin Mills); it's from a steam table, but it's not bad.

      The much-maligned Dante's makes a huge veal sandwich. It's pricey, but I usually get two meals out of it. However, there's so much loaded on it that you don't get much veal taste.

        Dante's has moved to Maple, which makes me glad since my neighborhood is a much safer place to walk now that their drivers are not terrorizing our streets with their driving.

      2. Oh, wow, I've been looking for a proper veal sandwich in this area for years! Sadly, I've only come across good, but nothing great. I've had one at the Longo's on Hwy 7 and Woodbine, which has been pretty good at times. I can't say I've had much success with Nino since they moved. And Dante's makes a fantastic sandwich, but it's far from what you'd expect a traditional sandwich to be. There used to be a spot on Yonge just north of 16th, a purely italian sandwich place, and that was quite good... but it's gone now.

        1. When I was living in southern Richmond Hill, my husband and I used to love Abruzzo's pizza off of Yonge St, just north of Hwy 7. Great veal sandwiches. But be warned, you will need a plate & knife & fork to eat it.
