My husband and I had dinner at Mamakas. We ordered Tzatziki for appetizer and Eggplant Imam Bayildi and Pork Souvlaki for the main course. The eggplant needed more cooking and the pork was not tender not to mention there wasn't much pork on the plate.

and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University
Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in
flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
