Specializing in smoked meat and Jewish delicacies like latkes and matzoh ball soup, Caplansky’s is an iconic Toronto sandwich joint in the heart of the city. Credited with reviving the delicatessen scene, owner Zane Caplansky has been a pioneer in the culinary scene in Toronto since the opening of its first location on College Street. What started as a pop-up restaurant, is now a popular sandwich spot with three locations loved by locals — and there’s even a food truck (the first in Toronto, in fact). The smoked meat is the obvious choice for first timers, and don’t forget to get it ‘fresser’ style, where you get double meat. Because why not?
