New Califonia Sandwiches on Yonge @ Carlton

  • 5

Stopped in here after work the other day for a sandwich to go. The space is very modern looking with a real "fast food" vibe. They were almost empty at 6pm and one couple had ordered ahead of me but it still seemed to take a quite while to get my veal sandwich. When I got home the coating just fell off of the meat and the meat itself looked gray and was a bit chewy. I doubt I will go back.

  1. I've never had anything bad to say about a California Sandwich before visiting this location, but I was not impressed when I stopped here a few weeks ago. Seemed like less meat than usual stacked up, and they forgot my jalapenos.

    The good news from this is that I haven't gained any weight from wanting to return every day on my commute home like I did when I lived in Little Italy.

    1. Having never been, do you think the sandwiches would travel well for 45 minutes (which is how far away I am from the Burlington outpost)?

        No, I traveled less then 20 minutes and I did not think it held up.. Bun was falling apart and like I said the coating slid right off the veal and the meat seemed chewy. Not sure how it would have been if I ate it in the shop.. but I will wait for others to give their verdict before I try again.

          Definitely, but make sure you ask for the sauce on the side, otherwise it'll become a soggy mess. With the sauce on the side the sandwich travels surprisingly well.

            Thats actually great news. We have been wanting to try for quite some time, but have held back because of the 'fall apart' factor, and I wasn't sure if they were open to requests.

            Thanks!
