5 Hottest Restaurants in Mississauga: Feb. 16-22
Here are the 5 hottest restaurants in Mississauga for the week of Feb. 16-22, based on the number of organic page views and searches these restaurants received on insauga.com.
The Wilcox Gastropub is located on the corner of Hurontario and Eglinton and is situated in the Wilcox House - one of Mississauga's oldest Heritage Homes which features Greek and Gothic detailing and was built by Amos and Charles Wilcox in 1850. In a place that serves everything from pork sliders to poutine, I'm going straight to the burger. This is one of their signature dishes here called The Wilcox Burger and it didn't disappoint. The beef is grounded daily and the only one on this list that actually bakes their brioche buns daily. Now that's dedication!
4) Raw Aura
Raw Aura, Port Credit’s Lakeshore-located raw, organic resto, is a treat for anyone looking for creative dishes, inventive and delicious smoothies and an honest-to-god Kensington Market, cool hipster vibe. The tiny establishment is super casual and boasts a crunchy, indie chalkboard menu. This place tends to get crowded and the dishes are a little on the pricey side (two can eat for a little over $80 with drinks and tip), but the experience is part of the package. In terms of food, you have to try the red beet ravioli. The presentation is top-notch, and it boasts beets, cashew ricotta cheese, red pepper marinara sauce and dehydrated kale chips. As for mains, the yellow coconut curry noodles is always satisfying. If you want a huge treat, try the Cinnamon Toast Crunch smoothie.
3) Pho Ngoc Yen
No matter what month it is, there's no food more satisfying or comforting than pho—a signature Vietnamese soup famous for its flavourful broth and hearty toppings. And although most Vietnamese places do pho justice, some produce astounding and exquisite noodle soup (and pork and mango salad and spring rolls, of course) and pair it with an absolutely unforgettable atmosphere. One of those gems is the newly opened Pho Ngoc Yen, a beautifully decorated and stunningly tasty Vietnamese resto that just took shape on Kamato Road in the Tomken and 401 area in Mississauga. As far as food goes, the steaming hot rare beef pho stands up against hearty, delicious soup served in Hanoi. So, too, do the crispy Vietnamese spring rolls, served with delicate, subtle fish sauce. Although this restaurant is hidden, it's already getting a reputation for being authentic and delicious. You don't want to miss this one, even if it's nowhere near your office.
Another delicious South American resto in Cooksville! They have an amazing Colombian platter called a bandeja paisa. When it arrives at your table, you may find it beautiful and/or intimidating. Half a plate of rice, another half of beans, some sweet plantain, chorizo, chicharron, grilled beef (asada), a fried egg, and an arepa… I’ll be honest, it was exhausting just typing all that out; it really is a lot! The plate is busy and you may not know what to eat next, but the flavours are truly delectable. Their Churrasco is a notable item as well as their empanadas, and with a good size menu, there are many other tasty options available too. The place is small in size, but very inviting! Some parking is available out front if required.
Although Mississauga is home to a plethora of hot and popular restaurants, we’re of the opinion that there’s always room for one more—especially when that “one more” is one we’ve been hoping for. Back in 2014, insauga.com reached out to popular ramen resto Kinton Ramen to ask if it would ever consider setting up shop in Mississauga. The restaurant operators were pleasantly enthused about the idea and said they’d been considering the Square One area. Now, several years later, Kinton Ramen’s ambitions have been realized. The growing brand, known for its authentic pork and chicken soup, recently opened on the ground floor of the Parkside Village condos. The resto, boasting a modern interior and an exciting menu, is a welcome addition to the Square One area food scene.
