Famous for their Peameal Bacon on a Soft Country Bun, Carousel Bakery is located inside the popular tourist attraction, St Lawrence Market. I passed by this place couple times knowing it's very popular, so one day I decided to give it a try. The sandwich was $5.75 plus tax and they have me packets of mustard, mayo, honey mustard and ketchup.
As you can see, there is nothing BUT peameal bacon inside the bun, and because I was given all these packets of sauce....I decided to put all of them in except the honey mustard. I thought sandwich was kind of on the expensive side...considering you can get 6 foot sandwich at Subway for $5 but the sandwich is pretty big.
This is inside of the Sandwich, there are SO MUCH peameal bacon inside. I guess I am getting my moneys worth.....but it was so salty! The bun was soft and the peameal bacon was good but I didn't see anything special about it. I felt like I was eating a sandwich with thick pieces of salty ham. I kept on trying to taste or feel what the hype was about...but I couldn't.
Summary: This was a big disappointment. It was just salty and nothing special. If I wanted a sandwich, I'd much rather visit Subway for a Subway Club.
