Here&Now Supermarket Series Part Two: Adonis

I first heard about Adonis when I visited friends in Montreal. Then I got a text one Saturday evening from a friend in Toronto who had rushed to Adonis’ new store in Mississauga as soon as she heard it had opened. (There, she met a friend of hers who’d confessed that he’d already been to the new supermarket three times that day.)

A supermarket that inspires such passion had to be a part of my CBC Radio Here&Now series “We are what we shop for” that tries to learn about our city through the places where we go to buy our food. So this week I headed out to Mississauga to try Adonis’ freshly baked pita (made in a massive machine you can watch through a glass wall), as well as their store-cooked home style Lebanese dishes. (Just like at Galleria, where you can buy store aided-traditional dishes, at Adonis you can buy foods your mother would have made–and never bought!)
