MUSTACHIO St. Lawrence Mar­ket South, 91 Front East, 416-368-5241 50 Cent don’t know shit about sand­wiches. There’s his au­to­graphed glossy pinned to the wall at St. Lawrence’s Carousel Bak­ery, the home of the widely ac­claimed peameal ba­con on a bun, right next to those of Emeril La­gasse and Catherine Zeta-Jones. Per­haps next time the bul­let­proof rap­per hits town he’ll head to the Mar­ket’s base­ment in­stead, where this far su­pe­rior take­out stand deals mas­sive fo­cac­cia-based sand­wiches piled high with breaded egg­plant, grilled hot pep­pers and sweet caramelized onion.

IT’S ALL GOOD 68 Wales, 416-504-0222 To make his awe­some cream of tomato soup, self-taught foodie Ezan Shanta starts with ul­tra-ripe or­ganic toma­toes grown in his part­ner, Natalie Sach’s, grand­mother’s back yard, adds fresh basil, rich house-made veg­gie stock and heavy cream, then blends them to or­der into an am­brosial purée that only im­proves with a sub­stan­tial shot of his sig­na­ture chipo­tle hot sauce. Camp­bell’s never had it so mmmm good.
