TORONTO — Rashers, a new Leslieville eatery, spotlights the bacon sandwich.
“We were disappointed in the lack of availability of English/Irish-cut bacon, known as a rasher, a combination of the belly and loin of the pig,” co-owner John Clark told The Star.
With help from Toronto-based consulting chef Suzanne Baby, co-owners John Clark and Richard Mulley developed a menu of seven sandwiches to be served out of their four-seat eatery, with pork supplied by Perth Pork Products and artisanal bread from Fred’s Bread. Menu highlights include the Hogtown sandwich with peameal bacon, the beer-braised BLT with Guinness mayo and the grilled cheese with homemade crunchy ale mustard.
Owners told Toronto Life they hope to eventually expand, adding more units throughout the city.
