Senior's downstairs diner has best BLT's ever!

Hey folks, not talking about the tasty and good-value steakhouse often mentioned on posts here, but Senior's downstairs diner. You go in off Yonge (rather than the Pleasant Blvd entrance which accesses the steak joint upstairs), turn sharp left for the takeout window and deal with two of the friendliest employees of any eatery in Toronto. The secrets to their BLT (I actually order BT as not a lettuce lover) are as follows:

a) just the right amount of mayo and butter so you can eat the packed sandwich fairly unmessily;

b) the crunchy, generously portioned and flavour-full bacon which is neither sloppily underfried nor the product of pre-cooked packages of microscopic thinnness;

and, almost above all,

c) the profusion of ripe, tasty tomatoes. Don't know where they source them, but they remind me of those that used to grown in my Grandmother's kitchen garden: they are cored, perfectly ripe and contain not a trace of those waxy, pallid slices to which the sub shops, fast food burger houses and alas - many reputed Toronto restaurants - resort.

All this for $5.25 or thereabouts. A steal. A delight. Ad multos annos!
