Battle Results! Best Chinese Battle: Mississauga vs. Brampton

Published August 30, 2018 at 8:04 pm


There is nothing in the world quite like Chinese food. Arguably one of the world’s most iconic cuisines, it’s known for its liberal use of savoury fried rice, crunchy vegetables, flavourful meats, spicy curries and delightfully filling noodles. Chinese cuisine is one of the best in the world and for good reason—it’s got something for everyone.

When it come to great Chinese food, every ingredient counts. Is the fried rice exquisitely flavourful and savory? Is the wonton soup superbly comforting on a chilly night? Does it offer both mainstays and more exotic fish or tofu-based dishes?

Both Mississauga and Brampton are known for their respective food scenes and both offer a ton of commendable Chinese joints—but only one city can have the absolute best Chinese place.
