I visited a couple times when they first opened and chose to not comment here on the porchetta and steak sandwiches until they had some time to work things out.

I am so glad I went back today. I planned to try the meatball but today's rock shrimp po'boy won out. It was the lunch special for 10 bucks which included bev and tax!

The shrimp are fantastic - nice crunchy breading and cooked perfectly. The kaiser-style bun is so light and airy, it simply holds the ingredients together so you don't end up with bread mouth. Tasty arugula, lemon aioli and tomatoes compliment the shrimp to make this a superb sandwich that would absolutely hold its own in New Orleans! The portion size is excellent given the price and quality. I would eat this 16 times over the County General Yawn-Fried Chicken Sandwich!

Maybe its just my hangover-induced hunger from my pre-pre-NYE party that has me so enthralled with today's sandwich but I really think Toronto is asleep on this place! And while we're on that topic Alimento is another amazing spot to hit that nobody seems to care about....
