I've gone to Olliffe a few times now, and I can honestly say it was a few times too many.Their meat is over seasoned in an attempt to hide the awful flavour and quality of their meat. Their steak burgers in particular were horrendous. They fell apart as soon as you took them out of the wrapper and were in pieces in the frying pan. If I had used a grill, I would have had no dinner at all.The only good thing I could say about the burgers is that all the over seasoning actually made them smell edible. How the nose plays tricks on the mind. I would avoid this butcher shop at all costs.
A smorgasbord of locally and internationally sourced meats, from Ontario pork and USDA prime beef to New Zealand venison, attracts deep-pocketed customers to this Rosedale-Summerhill butcher shop; hard-to-find and custom cuts of game, poultry and lamb are also available, as are catering and delivery.
Olliffe is Rosedale's favourite butcher. The meat selection here is probably without equal in Toronto and there's always new prepared creations ready to be picked up for a no-fuss dinner.
Olliffe is my favourit meat shop and prepared food shop in all of Toronto the Chef is top rate he is a hiden gem!!!
