It’s no secret that the Double P’s love for food stems from our childhoods. We both come from families who hold eating in high regard; having a good meal is just as important as having a good life. For example, whenever my grandmother would call to say hi, she’d ask “What did you eat for dinner?” instead of “How are you?”
So when my parents rave about a new restaurant, it means 1) It’s good, and 2) We’ll be going for our next family outing. Serving “modern Middle Eastern” cuisine, SHoom SHoom (7355 Bayview Ave.) in Thornhill is their latest love. Mom and dad have been going on and on about the big portions, the great service and how busy it always is. Based on my first visit there, there was already a large line-up by 6:30 pm, the staff are very friendly and welcoming, and the main dishes are absolutely humongous.
How big is humongous? Read on to see the massive mains, and how many leftover meals my doggy bag became.
