Fresh East by Paramount Fine Foods in Downtown Toronto

Fresh East, the quick-serve offshoot of Paramount Fine Foods, is now closed. This location has been replaced with a Paramount Middle Eastern Kitchen.

I wish this sandwich shop was here when I went to Ryerson. I would have eaten a lot less of Ernie’s hot dogs. Fresh East by Paramount Fine Foods is a halal certified take-out sandwich shop just steps from Yonge Dundas Square in downtown Toronto, It serves Middle Eastern-inspired pitas, sandwiches, soups and salads prepared with the freshest ingredients.

The Fresh East menu is halal certified and features kafta, falafel, sandwiches-in-a-bowl and veal “macon” (mock bacon). The beef shawarma and shish tawouk were delicious, topped with generous portions of flavourful toppings. Here’s the beef shwarma:

Asiz recommended the shish tawouk, which is prepared with traditonal marinated chicken shish kebab. Here is Asiz.

The more healthy options for fast-casual meals the better. Fresh East is quick, delicious, affordable and so convenient if you are shopping near the Eaton Centre, visiting Yonge Dundas Square or looking for halal takeout near Ryerson.
