Since living in the Riverdale/Leslieville area for the past 3 years, I've frequented Mimi's for take-out only, at least 1/2 a dozen times. I've only ever ordered Pho or Bun, mainly because I order it for myself, and at least in the past, anything else was just too much food!

Last night I ordered #114, Bun with BBQ shrimp on sugarcane, BBQ pork and spring rolls. I was disappointed in both the portion size, which seems to have shrunk in the past few years, and the quality. I remember there used to be 2 spring rolls - crispy and tasty. Now there is one, which was mushy inside. I also remember getting two pieces of shrimp on sugarcane, now one. Also, underneath the vermicelli was a large amount of bean sprouts, which I like, but it seemed to be underneath to 'beef' up the look of the portion.

It's not like I NEED more food, but I used to look forward to leftovers.

Anyone else noticed a change in either quality or portion size?
