M & B Yummy – Seriously… it’s Yummy

A week or so ago, a few friends and I went over to M & B Yummy in Parkdale (1263 Queen Street West, Toronto, ON.)  I wasn’t sure anything would beat the awesomeness of Nazareth, but I kept my mind open and my belly hungry. It’s kind of easy to miss, lacking all of the shiny look-at-me signage that seems to be appearing along Queen Street, but I don’t think it needs it.  I heard about it within weeks of arriving in Toronto, and kept hearing about it so I’m glad it was suggested.

All of us ordered the “beef” vegetarian combo, and when the food arrived… I think we were all pretty shocked at the portion sizes. It’s kind of hard to figure out what each item on the plate is, but I can tell you that they were all very delicious. The beef tibs, made with tofu, were sauteed and garlicky. There were spicy dark green collard greens, a couple of lentil stews, a cabbage dish, green beans and carrots, the green salad in the middle with a light dressing and a generous helping of injera (we noticed that we’d be charged for extra pieces, but unlike the experience I have had at most ethiopian restaurants, there was more than enough injera on the plate).

Then we ended our meal with one of each of the desserts from Sweets from the Earth they had left. Carrot Cake, Chocolate Cake and a piece of cheesecake.
