Adam, Cari and I visited Toronto’s premiere Wilco-themed Sandwich shop for a late lunch today. Sky Blue Sky, located on Bloor Street, west of Bathurst is wonderful. Though it was understaffed today, we had a bit of a delay getting our soup and sandwiches, but the delays were worth it.
Hoodoo Voodoo (v)
Asian pear with Gouda grilled cheese sandwich. Must be magic how the pear stays firm. We suggest using our own brown bread.
I didn’t take their suggestion and have it brown bread, instead I had it on their vocalized suggestion which was a cheese bread, and it was damn good. It was a bit odd, it seemed very heavy because of the extreme amount of cheese, but also very light because of the pears. Overall, I think it was a bit too heavy, but I still loved it. I’m STILL full from it, five hours later. That’s worth $5.
I also had a sweet potato and corn chowder, which was also fab.
The Millers shared the same soup, but they ordered:
Wishful Thinking (v)
Big, meaty portabella mushrooms teamed nicely with creamy avocado slices and rings of slow cooked onions on your choice of bread.
Dreamer In My Dreams
Slices of roast beef topped with carmelized onions and a slice of sharp cheddar cheese. We prefer to use our Panini to press the sandwich and have the cheese melt over the onions and beef, but we’ll do whatever you dream up.
The Wishful Thinking looked really good, and Cari and Adam both seemed to like it. Adam, however liked his sandwich more, the Dream In His Dreams which to me looked gross and filled with too many dead animals.
I’ll definitely have to return.
