We all have that one special place we visit often to satisfy our food cravings, and when these establishments close for good, it’s difficult to find one just like it.

Here are five restaurants that shut down their businesses in August, which left some of its regular customers disappointed.

Big Smoke Burger

The Big Smoke Burger located inside of Square One, at 100 City Centre Dr. in Mississauga closed its doors after the location’s lease ended with no option for renewal.

The restaurant offered a variety of gourmet-style burgers, from the Blazing Pineapple served with grilled sweet and spicy pineapple, to the Craft which came with sautéed mushrooms and house-made rosemary-garlic mayo.

If you’re craving a meal from this place, the nearest Big Smoke Burger location is at Sherway Gardens, 25 West Mall, Etobicoke.

Iron Chef Japanese Steakhouse

Iron Chef Japanese Steakhouse, located at 4920 Tomken Rd was Mississauga’s first teppanyaki and sushi hotspot and quickly became a staple in the city for many years.

Customers could watch chefs cook teppanyaki orders on a hibachi or iron griddle right in front of them.

During the dining experience, the chefs were known to perform “dazzling and highly skilled maneuvers.”

The restaurant also specialized in sushi and sashimi and offered other menu items including Pad Thai.

This must-eat spot served up Vietnamese subs for more than a decade in Brampton.

Che Thuy Nga located inside a strip mall at 143 Clarence St. had offered many different sandwiches for all palettes.

Their menu included different kinds of pork, BBQ chicken, beef, sardines and a vegetarian option that came with various pickled vegetables.

Users on social media had been lamenting the sub shop’s closing, with some hoping the owners would reopen in a new location.

A family-friendly eatery in Welland prepares to shutter its doors very soon as its being “pushed out” of its location.

Mommaz Boyz pub and eatery opened in 2014, and was known for serving a number of comfort food staples including chicken tenders, quesadillas, tacos, grilled cheese sandwiches, burgers, nachos, wraps, salads and more.

The restaurant also had an extensive kids menu which included the popular poutine option.

While the operators have not mentioned any immediate plans to relocate, they said that reopening is a possibility.

Louanne’s Famous Fries

This bright pink trailer located at 9989 Trafalgar Rd., at 10 Side Rd., in Georgetown, had become something of a local landmark.

Louanne’s Famous Fries was well known in the area for reasonably priced comfort food like burgers, hotdogs, sausages, peameal, chicken fingers, fries, onion rings, and poutine.
The little shop shut down its operations, but mentioned it would be temporary as the owner is looking for a new home for the business in Halton Hills.
