New Mississauga Restaurants Win Exciting Awards


Mississauga's restaurants might not have cracked this top 100 list just yet, but the city's diverse and delicious dining hotspots are generating a lot of buzz—and even winning awards.

Recently, we learned that a new Mississauga restaurant was declared the home of the best veal sandwich in Ontario. Now, we're happy to report that another relatively new addition to the city's thriving food scene has received an exciting distinction from the brand new Food Awards Ontario 2019. 

The inaugural Food Awards Ontario 2019, which celebrates the restaurants that provide local diners with delicious food and unique flavours, has declared atmospheric Vietnamese restaurant Pho Ngoc Yen the Restaurant of the Year (Central West and Overall). 

Pho Ngoc Yen, which opened in 2017, is located at 1090 Kamato Rd.

According to the Food Awards Ontario official website, the awards recognize the achievements of local suppliers who serve the freshest of products and specialists who work hard within their establishments to deliver great dining experiences.

"The winners are a true reflection of the professionalism, dedication and skill that form the Ontario's food industry," the website says. 

"The awards also acknowledged meritorious specialists for working tirelessly within establishments where excellence is standard and for being at the forefront of the industry due to their commitment to being the best."

The organization honoured dozens of restaurants across Ontario. While Pho Ngoc Yen was declared the best restaurant overall, it wasn't the only Mississauga gem to make the list.

Laari Adda, the relatively new Indian and Pakistani street food restaurant in the Erin Mills area, won in the Best Street Food category. 

"These awards aimed to thank those that contribute to making Ontario a top destination to taste great food. It is true that Ontario combines flavours from all over the world and both visitors and residents can choose from a wide range of restaurants, gastro pubs and bistros," a spokesperson for the Food Awards Ontario 2019 said in a statement. 

"The awards celebrated everything related to food and provided a platform to showcase those who have dedicated their whole career in serving us great gastronomic delights as well as those who help us explore different cuisines, from Mexican to Oriental and much more. We would like to congratulate the winners and finalists for their amazing achievements."

Several of the awards were split into local regions to ensure the diverse range of businesses from across the province were recognized for their exceptional work.

Other winning restaurants included Mezcal Tacos & Tequila in Hamilton (Best Mexican Establishment), Bombay Grill Restaurant in Milton (Best Indian Establishment), Sakis Mediterranean & Greek Restaurant in Burlington (Best Mediterranean Establishment), Canoe in Toronto (Best Traditional Canadian Restaurant), Liaison College in Brampton (Cookery School of the Year) and more.

The list also awarded caterers, cafes, takeout joints and hotel restaurants.
