Urban Eats @ Caplansky's Deli, Toronto

It felt like -20 this past weekend in Toronto.  I was craving a nice, warm Montreal smoked meat sandwich to keep me cozy.  So we trekked it over to Caplansky's Delicatessen on College St.  The fresh and inviting deli opened in August 2008 after being above the Monarch Tavern before this incarnation.  The exposed brick, warm lighting and subway tiled walls really opens the space up and makes it really hip.  I am happy to have finally found myself a nice smoked meat sandwich in the city, that I don't have to drive to Montreal for.

The 8 oz. smoked meat on rye ($8) was delicious, though a bit more drier than the sandwiches I had at Reuben's Deli in Montreal.  Smother that baby with some gourmet mustard by Kozlik's and you are good to go.  You can combo your sandwich with a side of fries, poutine or their cute little mini latkes for ($3) extra.  Now brace yourself poutine lovers...Caplansky's shreds up smoked meat, mixes it into their gravy and pours that fine hot mess over crispy fries and cheese curds.  We also really dug their coleslaw which was not too sour or tangy ($3).  So where else can I find a good smoked meat sandwich in the city?
