Uno Mustachio - Tasty Italian at St. Lawrence Market (Toronto, ONT)

St. Lawrence Mkt.

After missing out on St. Lawrence Market on the first day in Toronto due to the holiday weekend, we were determined to visit the famed St. Lawrence Market for breakfast. After doing some research, I had my sights on some tasty Italian sub at Uno Mustachio.

After looking at various post that discussed about Uno Mustachio, I was told to try either the eggplant sandwich or the veal sandwich. Yet, upon seeing the Veal & Eggplant Sandwich, I figured it's wise to try to the best of both worlds, and I'm glad I did. The veal was quite nice, but the star was the eggplant. I was surprised the eggplant was better than the veal, though it's hard to argue against the crisp exterior and the tender and flavorful interior. Very nice.

My 2 friends ordered a meatball sandwich and chicken parmagiano respectively. Although I didn't get a taste of either dish, my friend seemed to enjoy his meatball sandwich. However, I was told the chicken parmagiano was pretty mediocre, as it was nothing special.

As expected, the sandwiches at Uno Mustachio was definitely a hit, though I'd probably stay away from their pasta dishes. I was tempted to get a 2nd sandwich after a few bites, but these sandwiches were definitely filling. There were many food choices at St. Lawrence Market, though if you had to try something that the market is known for, don't doubt with the choice of an Eggplant (what I'll get in the future if I return) sandwich at Uno Mustachio with an Orangina to wash it all down!


Orangina, my favorite!

Final Rating: 8 out of 10

St Lawrence Market reminds me of the Reading Terminal Market in Philly! You're gonna love it just as much. Don't forget to stop by DiNic's for some roast pork or roast beef :-)
