Sandwich lovers, take note: there's a new deli open right across the street from Trinity-Bellwoods park, and they're serving up loaded Italian-style sandwiches that are stuffed to the brim with deliciously savoury, pickle-y and cheesy toppings.
Lambo's Deli and Grocery is located right at the corner of Bellwoods and Dundas, within ideal proximity to the park for a cozy picnic or autumn stroll featuring a hearty sandwich. The menu is filled with classic, Italian-style goodies, artfully prepared and elevated with unique toppings. For meat lovers, their Italian Combo includes a trio of dry-cured capicollo, mortadella and prosciutto, while the giant slow-roasted beef number is given an extra kick of flavour with pickled fennel, punchy arugula, grainy Dijon and a horseradish crema.
For a slightly lighter option, their pesto-smothered smoked turkey features roasted red pepper, chunks of fresh mozzarella and a generous serving of bright green pesto, combining a few stars of Italian cuisine. Those who prefer a pescatarian vibe should opt for the Albacore tuna, which is prepared with a zingy lemon caper aioli and topped with pickled onion, a salty black olive tapenade and a highly recommended house-made chilli spread. Lambo's is very accommodating to dietary needs, offering additional vegetarian options and a fresh chopped salad that can also be made without meat or cheese.
Their soft opening on Tuesday was met with crowds of hungry folks looking to get their hands on a juicy sandwich, and they completely sold out by mid-day during their official grand opening on Friday. To avoid disappointment or long wait times, the deli recommends calling ahead 45 minutes to place an order to skip waiting in line for your food. Lambo's is currently open from 11am to 7pm, so make sure to go early or order ahead of time to get your hands on one of these beauties! There's no doubt that this spot is the newest addition to the ultra-popular, crowd-drawing group of Toronto restaurants that you won't want to miss out on.
