New Italian sandwich shop opens in Seaton village
Plus a tea shop that has milk tea on tap, and a new café with seven different lasagnas
A new sandwich shop and catering business has opened in Seaton village. Papamio’s offers a variety of café classics, from Italian sandwiches and salads to pastries and espresso drinks. They also serve Si Burritos, a unique take on this classic Mexican dish. With an evolving menu, returning customers will always have something new to try at Papamio’s. Plus they serve all-day breakfast (934 Manning Ave., 647561-7272).
Morellina’s café offers coffee and pastries to its customers, but it’s the lasagna that sets this place apart. There are seven options to choose from, including lasagna primavera, lasagna calabrese and lasagna del bosco, which features four different mushrooms with a hint of truffle. La-sign me up! (146 Christie St., 416-659-7044).
With a large selection of vegetarian and nonvegetarian options, Bombay Roti specializes in one thing, and it does it well. This roti comes uniquely prepared and is accompanied by sauces ranging from curry, spinach and vindaloo to korma and tikka. Other regional favourites included on the menu are samosas and biryani, as well as ras malai for those looking to satisfy their sweet tooth. Delivery is also an option (529 Bloor St., 647-352-7684).
The home furnishing boutique Bois & Cuir has brought its unique selection of home furnishings, lighting and accessories to Toronto. Located in Yorkville Village, its designs vary from classic to industrial and even vintage. Founded in 2014 in Quebec, this is the store’s fifth location in Canada, and it promises to offer all visitors a unique furniture shopping experience (55 Avenue Rd., 647-348-2647).
Chef Minah Kim and her sons are taking Korean cuisine to another level at Myato Gastropub. This new restaurant presents globally inspired dishes with a Korean twist. It offers tapas, sushi, cocktails and desserts. The contemporary restaurant design creates a pleasant dining experience, highlighted by a flavourful adventure of Korean-fusion creations (549 Bloor St. W., 416-535-8965).
Tika Tea House literally has milk tea on tap. The owners claim that storing the tea this way does a better job of maintaining flavour than blending it fresh. The logic sounds solid to us. Fruit teas are made with freshly sliced fruit, whereas the oolong pearl milk tea should attract any bubble tea connoisseur. The tea house even offers a takeout container, a uniquely designed cup holder made out of recycled materials (675 Yonge St.).
