Plancha Toronto

Plancha

Plancha bills itself as “educated street food.” The concept fuses the cuisines of the western Mediterranean to create healthy, convenient and tasty meals.

Almost everything is made from scratch in house, including flatbreads baked in a brick oven. The menu is divided up into breakfasts, flatbreads, and “plunch box” salads, available as combos and with a range of additions.

The oven is in an open kitchen area behind the cash where orders are placed, and picked up when your name is called. The relatively compact cafe is decked out in Mediterranean inspired tiling and colourful hanging lights, with huge windows on two sides.

Sultan’s Gift ($9.79) is a breakfast dish of grass-fed yogurt with a rainbow of toppings.

Moroccan mint, organic banana and a mixed berry sauce work especially well, complementing the yogurt’s sourness.

Wild mushroom soup ($7.25) is one of two daily vegan and dairy free options. Made with local Ontario oyster, king, and porcini mushrooms, kale, ginger and turmeric, and served with spelt flatbread, it seems like it’d be perfect if you feel a cold coming on.

The 12:10 to Marrakech ($12.75) is topped with organic chicken cooked on the nominal plancha, tomato bruschetta and ras el hanout, almost like a classic Toronto shawarma pizza taken to the next level.

God’s Land ($10.75) tops organic lettuce with chili and maple glazed sweet potato, multi-coloured carrots, crunchy walnuts and celeriac, cherry tomatoes, black turtle beans and medjool dates.

It’s dressed with delicate lavender vinaigrette, balsamic and date honey, and we add an egg for extra creaminess and protein. “God’s Land” refers to the ancient Egyptian ancestral homeland and trading centre.

Happy Therapy ($10.55) is full of textures, loaded with crispy cumin and lemon roasted cauliflower, creamy avocado, tart thinly sliced apple, yummy roast parsnip chunks and crunchy shredded red cabbage, finished with lime, blossom honey and bee pollen paste and jasmine dressing.
