Doors Open

Every year on the last weekend in May, Toronto participates in Doors Open. Every year I don’t plan well enough and just wander aimlessly through the streets of Toronto but it is still good. This year I went with Theresa and although we didn’t plan anything, we saw some great Toronto sights and tasted some good food.

Our first stop was Casa Loma, followed by Spadina House.

Then we headed down to the water to Steam Whistle Brewery for beer, trains and lobster rolls by Rock Lobster Food Co.

Lobster rolls will always be good because they consist of lobster and mayo. However, as you can see, this roll has a slight excess of mayo which takes away from the rich, delicate nature of the lobster. They are less pricey than other lobster rolls though because the goal of this vendor is to bring lobster to the masses. For two lobster rolls it was around/a little more than $5 – not bad for lobster. They also serve fish tacos which is something I would want to hit up next time. These are good lobster rolls but not worth the line that often accompanies them at TUM.

After lobster rolls it was time for an aquatic adventure.

Another great weekend for Doors Open filled with history, food and of course, a sunburn.
