A Family Outing // St. Lawrence Market
Matt and I don't claim to be foodies. We know nothing about fine cheeses or gourmet delicacies, but we def love to eat. After a full weekend of binge-watching and salivating over I'll Have What Phil's Having on Netflix (which, by the way, is one of the funniest travel and food shows I've seen), we were inspired to go out and venture off on our own food adventures. What better place to do that than St. Lawrence Market?
Filled with delicious baked goods, meats, cheeses and fresh produce (and SO much more), St. Lawrence Market is Toronto's largest indoor food market and is the place to visit if you mean to explore, take in the sights and eat quality, fresh food while doing it.
We came in with empty stomachs, huge appetites and no intentions of making any healthy decisions that day. Throwing caution to the wind is what needs to be done when surrounded by good food! Matt normally goes with what a place is best known for, so he tried a Peameal Bacon Sandwich. I had lox with capers and onions on a fresh baguette—something I normally choose if it's there...so glad I did this time too!
We then spent a good 20-30 minutes pacing this very stand of pastries and treats. I, of course, wanted everything, but kept my cool and landed on a custard tart. So perfect and delicious. My chocolate-loving partner chose an eclair, mounted on what seemed like 6 inches of whipped cream. I should have taken a photo as proof, but it was already gone (inhaled) by the time I turned my camera on.
I could have spent the entire day here, taking photos and trying all of the other foods that we didn't get our hands on. Could it be trouble that our new place is waaay closer to the Market? I don't think so!
