Mealshare Yelp Event at Marben

Tonight there was a Yelp event at Marben promoting the worthy charity Mealshare, an organization whose mission is to end hunger in Canada and around the world. Mealshare has partnered with PARC (Parkdale Activity Recreation Centre) to provide meals in Toronto. Partner restaurants such as Marben (and others such as Khao San Road, Pizza Libretto, and Richmond Station) are giving a portion of the proceeds of certain dishes at their restaurants to Mealshare!

Here are those dishes that will be making a difference:

John's Burger
Braised Beef, Branson Pickle, Cheddar

John's Burger - I loved how this burger was served medium... The braised beef was very flavourful and melt-in-your-mouth.  Great bun selection... It was fluffy and soft. The cheese brought everything together. It was a bit on the salty side though. 

Fries

You gotta be fast!

Barley and Rye Kernel Risotto
 Fresh peas, asparagus, golden beets, puffed wild rice

Barley and Rye Kernel Risotto - This was my favourite dish of the night!  The risotto was flavoured with an asparagus sauce and was perfectly "al dente."  The barley, rye kernels, and puffed wild rice elevated the dish by adding a delicious crunchy texture. Terrific!

There were two options of drinks: a classic gin & tonic as well as the creative Dark & Stormy - 1.5 ounces of dark rum, 1/2 ounce of lime juice and topped up with ginger beer!
