Allwyn’s Bakery (Toronto) for delivery

After ordering delivery so many times, you learn that you need to heat it up. Unless you easily burn your tongue or like mildly hot food, a quick nuke in the microwave improves the meal by miles releasing aromas and returning the dish closer to its original state.

I wasn’t going to order from Allwyn’s Bakery and not try their famous stuffed sandwich ($7.50). Admittedly, I may have re-heated it a bit too long at 30 seconds or should have thought to remove the coleslaw and re-stuff the bun, as something about warm coleslaw tastes odd.

Who cares, as this sandwich is really good. When you take thick pieces of juicy jerk chicken and crunchy coleslaw and put it into a beef patty that’s sandwiched between a soft fluffy coco bread it makes a tasty combination. With the spicy beef patty, the sandwich has a tingly heat, but since there’s so much coleslaw everything is tempered and the sauces meld into flavourful bites. Just grab a large napkin as this baby is messy to eat.

The oxtail ($11.85 for the small) has such a nice rich flavour, the spices seeping into the meat. Which made the rice and peas such a disappointment when you’re met with a mouth full of a colourful but tasteless carbs. Where is the lovely gravy? Did someone forget to spoon some on before closing the lid? The gravy is why I order oxtail! Note to self: ask for extra gravy next time, for now add some salt and call it a day.

Allwyn’s redeemed themself with the jerk chicken wings ($7.85 for ½ lb) a flavour bomb that’s only available during the weekend. Perhaps a touch overdone, they were nonetheless well marinated with seasoning infused throughout the wing. I could seriously eat a whole pound of these if I had a glass of milk by my side.

Having Allwyn’s in the comfort of your own home is the way to go. You got to get handsy with the stuffed sandwich and jerk wings, creating a sticky but flavourful mess.
