Lover of Montreal smoked meat rejoice!! There's a new sheriff in town! 'Center Street Deli' be afraid, be very afraid!!.....fortunately, they are located on the opposite side of town!
An 18 year veteran with Montreal's smoked meat icon ' Schwartz ' has brought along his skill to Toronto and opened up shop in Scarborough, at the corner of Steeles and Middlesfield!.....an area congregated by a huge number of Chinese and Indian eateries!
Offering gorgeously fatty, juicy, tender and perfectly seasoned brisket. A sandwich, packed generously with a huge pile of the yummy protein, costs $8.99 and was pure heaven to eat!
Given an advance three days notice, they will even smoke you a whole duck!
Owners are extremely friendly and even offered me a kitchen tour to see their smoker and the treasures in it!
