This is the famous Allan’s beef patty at Toronto’s Peanut Plaza. Jocelyn, who took this photo describes it as “light and not greasy.” She thinks its better than Christie’s on Flatbush.
Over the years, the Peanut Plaza has grown more diverse. There is now an Indian and Chinese grocery store alongside Allan’s and Mr. Jerk, who offer a fabulous lunch special every day. (BTW, Mr. Jerk is still my jerk chicken yardstick.) The Indian grocery store also stocks really fresh curry leaves and some very good Tamil Nadu style parrottas. Clearly, there is still a lot more eating to be done in Toronto. Look at my eyes in this photo. I am up to the task.
