Me Va Me opening downtown

Me Va Me Express is opening in January 2014 where Spring Rolls used to be on Queen West, across from MuchMusic. Say what you want about Me Va Me, but it's definitely better than the Ghazale's and Ali Baba's that are all over downtown.

  1. Ah, I saw the sign but I had NO idea what type of food it was from the name.

    Here is the website for the Thornhill locations:

      They are super well known in the North York/Richmond Hill area for their two outposts in the area. Their sit down restaurant offers more choices in food that the site has (site is takeout only). Personal favs are the grilled lamb (skewers) and the Jerusalem mix (chicken/liver/heart)

    2. Thank you! I love their hummus and their salad.
      that's the best news I've heard all day.
      And I agree, way better than Ghazale & Ali Baba.
      I hope they open one near Bloor & Bathurst too.

        1. I'm not sure if anyone else thought that they were kosher, but a quick check of the COR website shows that they aren't.

          Not that it really matters, but it would be nice to have a kosher restaurant south of Eglinton.

          1. I AM SO EXCITED!!! I LOVE ME VA ME !! Couldn't enjoy them because all their branches are so far away from where I live so I'm truly so excited!

              Has anybody noticed if they are open? It's awful cold to walk over and check.... :)

                totally not. it doesn't seem like there is much work being done in there. i could be wrong. but not much has changed.

                    i've been wondering as well. i'll pass by on my way to or from work tomorrow and see if anything is going. will give you guys an update.

                      swung by mevame over lunch and passed that pai too while enjoying the tropical heat. windows still papered up at mevame, but the lights were on and there were a couple of guys inside. pai had a couple of construction lights on but not much action. they are both months behind schedule. hopefully just a case of pre-mcconnaisance failure to launch rather than non-openings.

                      ok. back to work.  plans to clock out early to see wes anderson's grand budapest hotel and then maybe grab a late dinner at ryoji if time permits. just need to avoid my boss for another hour.
