My dinner at Caplansky's last night: A Review
Last night,my sister,niece and nephew and I had dinner at Caplanky's. We all loved it! Smoked meat: all of us had smoked meat sandwiches. One of us had lean,my sister medium. I had fatty. They were fantastic. My smoked meat sandwich was beautifully flavored,tender,juicy,delightful. My sister ordered the soup of the day (they were out of matza ball soup. pity,as I really wanted to try it . She had the cabbage soup: we all agreed it was not good. No flavor,weak. Kiska: we tried it: Interesting,but uneven. Major let down was chopped liver: kind of on sour side. Fries: also great. Coleslaw: very good. Coffee was a nice,rich blend. The servers are so nice,they really do a good job. The vibe in the place is lovely. Desserts: we all shared: cheesecake, (Blueberry) (white chocolate-mm.good) Apple cake: what a great treat! Sour cherry pie: terrific. Amazing: not often desserts in a deli are so incredibly good. Definately will go back for a breakfast, and later a lunch. Zane deserves so much credit: he is bringing back something that has long been missing for Toronto Jews: an old fashioned deli.
I hope to try the chicken matza ball soup next time I'm there. Want to try his hot tongue,as well as brisket. A few items I'd like to see added to the breakfast and dinner menu: Fried Matza (never found a place that does this well) Mushroom + barley soup: Yitzes has one,sometimes,but it is variable in taste. On another topic,love to see or find a Kosher gourmet restaurant. There was one,years ago: Greenfields: but it is long gone-I miss it. I hated the kosher deli Markeys: I found the food terrible. I really want Zane to succeed,as I feel there is a good market.
