When it comes to great Greek food, you can find it at some of Mississauga’s long-standing (and very casual and welcoming) gems. When you’re in the mood for souvlaki, you won’t want to miss the consistently delicious east-end hotspot that is Astoria Shish Kebob House, the locally famous (Hazel McCallion is a fan) Peter’s on Eglinton, the industrially-located (and therefore perfect for lunch) Jessie’s, the beloved Port Credit gem Colossus Greek Taverna and our number one pick, the legendary (and almost always open) Zet’s. Although Zets is our number one pick, there are a lot of places to go in Mississauga when a Greek food craving hits.
When it comes to stunning Greek restaurants and exquisite dishes, Burlington has got you covered. Some restaurants you don’t want to miss? The Mediterranean and Indian (believe it or not!) fusion restaurant The Raging Olive, the elegant and sophisticated Paradiso, the small, charming and cozy Olive Us, the fabulously chic (and consistently delicious and service-focused) Mythos, and our number one pick, Sotiris Authentic Greek Cuisine—the restaurant known for its generous platters. While Sotiris is number one on our list, Burlington is no slouch when it comes to Greek food.
