Mysteriously Yours is Toronto’s only interactive dinner theatre and has put on murder mysteries for 28 years. Expect funny, friendly actors and an entertaining show with the current theme: “Spy School!: Mission Ridiculous”.
A three-course dinner selection was served prior to the show with complimentary tea and coffee.
Chefs soup of the day: Cream of spinach and potato topped with scallion and parsley oil. The soup was creamy but erred on the salty side. 3/5
M.Y Salad: Arugula with roasted chickpeas, shredded carrot, feta, and lemon-tahini dressing. A basic salad but the combination of chickpeas and lemon and tahini dressing went well together. 3/5
Chicken in white wine sauce: Tender chicken breast cooked in white wine thyme sauce with zucchini herb rice and a side of vegetables. The chicken was moist and the rice was creamy but the vegetable side was bland and meagre. 2.5/5
Beef and sweet potato tagine: Slow cooked beef and potato stew served with saffron couscous, toasted almonds and fresh cilantro. Almonds added a nice texture to an otherwise soggy dish 3/5
Chocolate tart: Rich Lindt milk chocolate tart served with raspberry cardamom sauce and whipped cream. A good choice for dessert but couldn’t taste the raspberry flavour. 2/5
Blueberry and ricotta cream trifle: Layers of whipped lemon ricotta, fresh blueberries, vanilla sponge cake. A nice lemon-y whipped ricotta but the sponge cake was dry. 2/5
The show was creative, with many clever and funny references to pop culture. The audience participation and the quick improv of the actors had us laughing the entire time. This was a unique experience which is best suited for small parties and groups, but come here for the show and not the food.
