Yummy's Burger is Huge Cheap and Delish

food face Mar 20, 2009 05:04 PM

Yummies on Yonge just north of Wellesely makes the most incredible burger for $5.60 (tax inlcluded). It is 10 ounces, Halal meat on a soft fresh sesame seed bun. Char broiled juicy and super flavorful. The Yummy garlic sauce is perfect on top. It is so much better than Craft burger, Licks, and just about any other burger place and less expensive. The only thing, you got to tell them when to take it off the grill as sometimes it is left on too long. They will take it off the grill when you tell them too unlike Craft burger who will cook it into a grey mess. I love this burger and want to tell the world because I'm not afraid who knows it.

      Thanks Wolfe. The burger is worth the flight from Berkeley.

        I don't think this link is to the right place, this one is a korean bbq, but there is a
        yummy's (or maybe its yummies) north of wellesley that is middle eastern.

          You are probably correct and I am still in Berkeley. However there appears to be a Yummy BBq and a Yummis that Google has at 646 Yonge, although this menu has a new location.
          Please note the name confusion continued down this thread.

        Halal... guess that means no bacon! :(

          Isn't this a Korean restaurant?

            Yummi's is Iranian owned. Definately no bacon on the burger Duckdown!

              Can't be a great burger without the bacon (and cheese)! Sorry! :)

                Cheese plus meat is halal, unlike kosher unless I'm wrong.

                  You are correct. Halal allows mixing milk and meat and also allows shellfish. It does not allow pork or alcohol.

                  Kosher does not permit mixing milk and meat and does not allow shellfish or pork. Alcohol is okay.

                  Sure it can. If you have a really good patty, you don't need bacon and cheese. In some cases the extras are just compensating for a mediocre patty.

                  It's changed hands. There used to be two other Yummy's — definitely Korean fast food — one on Bloor, the other on Dundas W. Are they still there?

                    Yummi's on Yonge near Eglinton closed recently. The Yummi's on Yonge just north of Wellesley is open and it was the better one anyways. They are all independently owned.

                    I was just searching for Hala Burger places. I called the number but they say its a Korean Restaurant. Does anyone know the phone number for this place?

                      I really really loved their shawarma. I will have to give their burger a try next time!

                        I agree as well on their shawarma. I too will have to try their burger's next time I'm in the area. Plus the guys behind the counter are very friendly too. =D

                        Yummy's is ok. I wouldnt call it great or even real burger. but in the cheap/huge options, this is tops. if looking for a real burger, this is not the place to go

                          Why is not a "real burger" Shekamoo? Who serves a "real burger" in your opinion?

                            I consider the quality of the main ingredients, that is the bun and the meat. also, there is the question of preparation and tender/juiciness. Yummis is average at best in all categories. a real burger you would find in Nota Bene, Weezies, Swan, Allens, Harbord Room....

                              All of your choice burger places are time tested and true foodie burger destinations. Ofcourse for $15 and upwards at these places the burgers are great (especially Weezies). I love the Yummi's burger and anyone I've brought there for their burger also loves them. 12 ounces of Hallal meat, fresh sesame seed bun massive juicy with a home made garlic sauce; it's all been nothing but wonderful to me. Guess we shall have to agree to disagree on this one.

                          The proper name is spelled, Yummi's on Yonge st. and Irwin, just two blocks north of Wellesley. Don't be confused by Yummy's BB-Q. That is an Asian restaurant and they don't have burgers. I just went out to get the 10oz burger. It is absolutely amazing. Perfectly cooked and lots of toppings. They even told me I can call ahead next time because it takes about 8 to 10 min to cook. I highly recommend it.
