It was a choice between Czechoski on a coupon and Al Tanoor for shawarma. I chose Al Tanoor. Big Mo has a location just west on Lawrence. There was a big sign, Toonie Tuesday, cheeseburger $2.50. Of course I went in.
Had a cheeseburger, hold the cheese. Refreshingly innocent and unpretentious. Artisanal preparation on a flattop. Nestled in a bun like a (overweight) woman's thighs. $2.50 is all that it is worth to my mind, but it is regularly $5.79. (I would have been really mad at the regular price even though the burger had not been made stupid- as elsewhere.)
I went on to Al Tanoor.The shawarma that I got at Al Tanoor for $3 is worth $12-15 if the cheeseburger costs $5.79. Suggestion, keep going another block and pass Ibrahim.
Life isn't fair in the restaurant business. Surprise?
Anyway Big Mo has another location on Kennedy near Steeles.
I liked the waffle cut "chips" at Big Mo , others didn't.
