Eulalie’s Corner Store: Toronto, Ontario

Eulalie’s Corner Store: Toronto, Ontario

 

Eulalie’s Corner store is located at Gerrard Street East & Coxwell Avenue in Toronto’s Little India neighbourhood. It’s interior is a bit of a mixed design with half the space resembling a local bar where neighbourhood locals come to down a pint while catching the latest sports scores. The other half is what I would describe as retro-vintage-eclectic with it’s flamingo wallpaper and bright Spanish mosaic tiles.

The Burger ($16) is made with naturally raised beef, a slice of old cheddar, caramelized onions, lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, lemon garlic aioli and choice of side salad or fries. I opt for the Caesar salad over the fries as a side since I already plan on getting the lamb fries and am trying to have some semblance of control…but the salad is perfect with large ¬†shavings of parmesan and I don’t even feel like I’m missing out on those extra fries. The burger is perfectly cooked to medium rare perfection and is juicy and flavourful especially with the garlic lemon aioli.

Next we try out the Lamb Fries ($12). They’re topped with Moroccan spiced lamb, generous dollops of tzatziki, and pomegranate. It’s surprisingly has somewhat of a refreshing feel to it mostly from the bursts of pomegranate and smooth, cool, texture and flavours of the tzatziki. The dish is a nice blend of flavours from across the globe meets North American fried spuds.

Finally we test drive the Mac ‘n’ Cheek ($16) – macaroni smothered in old cheddar mornay, topped with smoked braised duck cheek, toasted garlic & scallion jam, and panko and parmesan crust. You can also order it sans cheek for those veggie friendly foodies out there, but for those everything eaters out there you’ll want this cheek in your life because it’s tender and almost butter like and the mac smothered in cheddar mornay sauce with scallions and panko parmesan crust is the new gold standard for elevated comfort food at it’s finest.

I short, don’t let the bar-esque half of the place fool you. There is no greasy sub-par pub fare being served here. In fact the quality and taste of the food here could rival some of the chicest bistros and restaurants in some of Toronto’s most bougie neighborhoods. It might also just be the perfect night out for those couple’s where one wants to drink beer and take in the game while the other wants to eat something that doesn’t involve corn nuts.
