HE ATE, SHE ATE

This month, our guest judges Rob Gen­tile, of Buca, and Top Chef Canada’s Ivana Raca, of Uf­fi­cio, sit down and taste a range of veal sand­wiches to come up with their faves

Richmond Hill Post - - Food -

COMMISSO BAK­ERY

Rob falls head over heels for this one. “Wow, that’s good,” he says. “It’s got a per­fect balance of the bun and fill­ing. They’re all go­ing to be messy, but this one holds it to­gether.” 8 Kin­court St., $10

SUGO

Rob com­mends Sugo’s sand­wich for its se­same bun and the sheer heft of the fill­ing, but he and Ivana think that it could do with a bit of sea­son­ing. “It’s not a bad sand­wich,” says Ivana. “It’s just miss­ing acid.” 1281 Bloor St. W., $13

CAL­I­FOR­NIA SAND­WICHES

It’s a close com­pe­ti­tion be­tween this and Dante’s for Ivana’s first place, but she finds her­self reach­ing back for this dou­blestacked sammy again and again. “This one’s softer,” she says. “I like ev­ery­thing about it.” 861 York Mills Rd., $9.49

TERRONI ADELAIDE

Both Rob and Ivana praise this hum­ble of­fer­ing from Terroni for its smoky flavour (it is the only one that is grilled), but deem it a tad too ba­sic. “I like that it’s sim­ple, but it’s miss­ing a lot,” says Ivana. 57 Adelaide St. E., $15.95

PAPAMIO’S

This new An­nex en­try comes with pep­pers, mushrooms and onions, but the bread loses a few points. “It seems like a lit­tle bit of a whole wheat bun ef­fect go­ing on, which I’m not against,” says Rob. “But it’s a veal sand­wich.” 934 Man­ning Ave., $11.50

UNO MUSTACHIO

Uno Mustachio’s is packed with gar­nishes. “It’s got a very fresh sauce,” says Rob. “It’s got pep­pers, mushrooms and onions. This is a tasty one.” His only com­plaint is that it lacks some sea­son­ing. 95 Front St. E., $10.85

DANTE’S PIZZE­RIA

The sammy from 905 leg­end Dante’s lands in the top three for both Rob and Ivana. Ivana loves the baguette. “The tomato sauce is re­ally, re­ally good,” she says. “Love the ten­der­ness of the veal.” 8700 Dufferin St., #18, $13.19

BOCCONE

Rob thought that while the breaded veal sammy from Boccone was a lit­tle un­der­sea­soned, he found that the yel­low pep­pers and cheese made up for it. 1378 Yonge St., $14
