New Openings: Dehli Grill
Syed Ali and his family moved to Mississauga from Pakistan in 2008 and he has worked in the restaurant business in both and back of the house for a number of years. Ready to take on his own restaurant, he and business partner simply known as Irshad opened a small take out spot in the Streetsville which serves both Pakistani and Indian cuisine called Dehli Grill.
(Cover shot: Veggie Samosa and Veal Qorma with Butter Naan - Qorma is a type of curry made with spiced yogurt or cream, onions and cardamom.)
Dehli Grill is a family run business and the name chosen by Ali's mother to honour the city of Dehli, where her family's ancestors were from.
"There is a lot of potential for restaurants [in Mississauga], local people are interested in trying the food and there's a large population of Indian and Pakistani [people in Mississauga]", says Ali.
Concept: A take-out joint. You can dine in but the seating is limited to only four at this time.
Food Menu: The Halal menu includes a B.B.Q. section featuring a variety of kababs, wings and boneless chicken (botti and tikka) and a quick bites section which includes snack sized orders of samosas, lollipop chicken, spring rolls, paratha, butter naan, kebabs and fried fish. You will also find both meat and vegetable curries on the menu, desserts, and rice dishes. They also serve halwa puri, a popular Pakistani breakfast dish comprised of curried chickpeas, deep fried bread (puri), and halwa (sweet confection made with semolina flour). They also cater, offer free delivery for orders $25 and up and offer affordable student lunch specials.
What’s Up and Coming? Window bar seating may be built to accommodate more dine-in traffic.
