Panier Rouge - Yonge and St. Clair

pâté chinois | Apr 17, 2012 09:34 AM

Seeing as I could not find posts on this new place on CH, I decided to check it out for myself.

Prêt à manger fans: rejoice. Panier Rouge is very similar to it, but on a smaller scale.

My meal: ceasar salad ($8) and petite chicken and herb sandwich ($3.25) - total with tax: $12.71

The salad: good sized portion, presented in a cardboard box. The lettuce is crispy, but slightly brown where the knife cut it. Garnished with thinly sliced onion (easy to remove), cheese shavings (not sure what kind, but tasty), a wedge of lemon (nice!), and the most disappointing croutons I've ever eaten (due to the fact that they are limp). Dressing is in a separate container, which is great.

The sandwich is the "baby" version of a bigger size. It is served on very fresh and soft multigrain bread (Country Harvest maybe), and garnished with lettuce, tomatoes, a few slices of cooked chicken (I think fresh, not the cold-cut variety), and an herb sauce (not mayonnaise as far as I can tell). Very good and fresh.

There are lots of beverage choices, but not too many dessert options.

Will I go back? yes, because I'm curious and want to try other sandwich varieties.

Did I love it? no. It was good, but not that great.

At prices similar to Delica's, I still prefer Delica.
