I wanted to take Zhao Kun for some Mediterranean Food at Zaffron with Sam and Verna when they suggested us to try out Me.Va.Me instead. The restaurant was located West of Zaffron at Dufferin and Steeles and was packed on a Monday night which had us waiting for thirty-minutes.
Unlike Zaffron which serves up Mediterranean Dishes that are of Persian origin, Me-Va-Me’s menu seem to lean towards Israel with the usual Shawarma, Kebabs, Salads, Dips and Grilled Fishes.
Our meal began with some ordinary Flat Breads and some pickles. I much prefer the Flat Breads at Zaffron which was served warm and was very fluffy
Assorted Dips: Green Eggplant, Hummus and Baba Ghanoush
To go with our bread we ordered three different dips. My favorite was the Green Eggplant, which had a nice smoky flavor. The Baba Ghanoush was also very good.
This was my first salad that came with a Yoghurt Dressing since I last had it in Germany. The dressing was creamy and had a nice acidic balance.
Grilled Lamb Kebab
The Lamb was grilled Medium Rare as ordered and was very tender. It was seasoned with Salt and Pepper and lemon juice.
Grilled Chicken Kebab
Surprisingly tender and juicy for Chicken Breast. It was again grilled with Salt and Pepper and some Lemon Juice. The Tazitzki dipping sauce however wasn't very good. The vegetables were simply steamed and were quite nice.
The best of everything I've had. The chicken although a little dry was very well flavored. It tasted a little like Kentucky. It was great with some Pita and Baba Ghanoush.
The food overall was quite good but I preferred Zaffron’s kebab and breads better. The meal cost around CAD $30 per person including tips and taxes.
Price: $$$ (Under USD $30 per person)
