Warning!! Do Not ever visit "Shopsys" Deli at Yonge and Front Streets again!! I went there on Sunday afternoon(December 1st) Just insultingly awful. No Baby Beef-they were out of it. No Hot Tongue:They Were Out of it!! No Chinese Chicken Salad:Out of it!! I seem to see a pattern here. I ordered the old favorite and Shopsys tradition:Barley and Mushroom Soup:Holy Cow,it was quite dreadful!! Reeking of chemical taste,the mushrooms tasteed canned,too many red and green peppers. And lukewarm,too. It left a burning taste in my mouth. Boy,I sure wished at the time that I was having one of Palm Beach's glorious and legendary Roast Beef Sandwitches At "Too-Jays"-A Palm Beach fantastic and super deli-market!!! Shopsys coffee was burned bitter brew,not drinkable. The Roast Beef Sandwitch was served first luke warm(back to microwave) then-it was so dry-not juicy as I like it-no rare or nice meat-almost tasted as if it could be used for beef jerky!! I sent it back:twice. Again-just a waste of my time. The roast beef still was utterly fourth rate,they had put one(1) piece of raw beef into the sandwich. I ate less than a quarter of it. They (thank you,Shopsys) took it off my bill. I had to order something:still hungry:and a diabetic. Ordered french fries-Yeeeccch!!! That Gravy:you could swim in it. No Iced Tea,no Jenny's Special Red Pop,All in all-a dud. Last time I visit Shopsys. Trading on memories-(Where is the picture of my late father,Jack Bernstein,with Prince Phillip?? Where was The Picture(s) of My mother,Soprano Mary Simmons,and my father,Jack Bernstein(President Of Famous Players Theatres Canada,and a very important and powerful movie mogul in North America-the picture with Sammy Davis,Jr??? Just as Sam The Record Man is now closing,so should Shopsys.
