A Sandwich a Day: Grilled Cheese at About Cheese in Toronto
In this great nation of ours, one could eat a different sandwich every day of the year—so that's what we'll do. Here's A Sandwich a Day, our daily look at sandwiches around the country. Got a sandwich we should check out? Let us know. —The Mgmt.
Sandwiches are made to order behind the counter at About Cheese, a tiny slice of a cheese boutique in the Village, which also stocks an admirable spread of tempting preserves, honey, and croissants. Thin slices of bread are layered with two-year aged cheddar, muenster cheese, and paper-thin slices of La Quercia prosciutto, then toasted up in a panini press. Walk down Church Street with this molten cheese-filled sandwich wrapped up in butcher paper like a hot little hand-warmer.
For $7.25, you get a sandwich big enough to crush even the most intense cheese craving, but the aggressive cheesiness makes it best shared, or enjoyed in two sittings: one when the cheese is at its meltiest, and later, when it has firmed up a bit.
