Churrasco Of St. Lawrence

Churrasco Of St. Lawrence

In one of the most popular food halls and markets in the world, St. Lawrence houses several entities that offer the coveted Portuguese custard tart, but one stands out (at least amongst the touristy folk). Churrasco at St Lawrence is known primarily for their barbecue chicken, but don't sleep on their custard tarts. When they come out hot from the oven, it's difficult not to indulge in at least one.

Directly translated to "good morning" in Portuguese, this small cafe and bakery in Parkdale is definitely the newest addition to this list and quite possibly one of the most stunning visually. Their egg tarts are perfectly crisp, sweet, and finished with a beautiful sear atop.
