There is a place in Toronto that is like no place else, that reminds me of back home. Actually not the place itself, but I can find food there that I cannot in regular Canadian grocery stores, like good sauerkraut, pickle, European pressed cottage cheese or I say kohupiim (in Estonian) which is not like your regular cottage cheese that you can buy from a random grocery store.
The place is called Benna’s Bakery and Deli
Location: 135 Ronchesvalles Avenue, Toronto
How to get there: 504 streetcar
It’s a Polish deli that I can always count on, although they don’t have the real rye bread I would like. But, no problem.
I don’t go there every weekend, maybe once in every 2 months and I always buy sauerkraut and cottage cheese. I will post a very yummy recipe with it soon! So you can try it as well. For all of you sweet lovers – it’s a very awesome tasty cake 🙂 And their fresh pickles in brine are awesome. Oh and the meat counter…..
Rob was very excited to find St Albert cheese from there. Over the moon, I would say 🙂 It reminds him his childhood, he grew up with this cheese. It’s a little taste of back home for him! So of course we had to get some 😉 We love cheese so no problem! We even visited St Albert cheese factory few years ago.
Also Rob is a big fan of pierogis/dumplings 🙂
I’m not a big fan of sweets but these images are for all of you, who own a sweet tooth 🙂 These cookies are awesome btw….
This was my dessert when I was a kid – fruits in syrup 😉
Little piece of heaven – Cottage cheese. Stay tuned for a great recipe. And be sure to visit this store. It’s great!
