Here are the 5 hottest restaurants in Mississauga for the week of Aug. 17 - 23, based on the number of organic page views and searches these restaurants received on insauga.com.
Avani, located at Mavis and Matheson, gets extra points for being a unique Indian and Asian cuisine fusion restaurant. Spacious and elegant with its use of deep colours and linen tablecloths, its extensive menu offers a pakora platter, spring rolls, samosa rolls, butter chicken, chicken haryali and pad Thai. Seeing the exquisitely prepared chicken haryali was probably the most joyous part of the meal. The savory, tender chicken dish -- known for its electric green colour, thanks to its coriander marinade -- was exceptional. This place has stood the test of time because it's reliably delicious—you don't want to miss it.
It looks like Mississauga’s once spartan ramen scene is exploding. Recently, Sansotei Ramen opened its doors in Square One--making City Centre a new mecca for ramen. Sansotei, which currently operates locations in Toronto, North York, Markham, Ottawa and Richmond Hill, is known for both the long lineups it tends to generate and its small but satisfying menu. Some soups on the menu include tonkotsu ramen, tonkotsu black ramen, miso black ramen, shoyu ramen, spicy tan tan ramen and tomato ramen. According to Sansotei’s website, the resto’s ramen broth is freshly made every day with pork bone. Diners can also choose thick or thin noodles and add extra toppings (think chashu, eggs, mushrooms, green onion and more) for an additional charge.
Meadowvale Town Centre recently welcomed yet another brand new resto--and this one is associated with another casual dining hotspot that’s been happily serving the community for a few years. Social Eatery Winston Churchill is actually the sister resto of the bigger (and Mississauga-based) Union Social Eatery. Although the menu is different from Union Social’s, it specializes in the same casual dining fare consumers have come to expect from the brand. The menu boasts fresh cut bacon salt fries, Thai curry meatballs, spinach artichoke dip, chicken wings (buffalo butter or Gochujang honey), a bacon double cheeseburger, a grilled chicken club salad, Union Social’s famous almond crusted chicken tenders, cashew chicken curry, steak frites and more. So if you're in the mood for some wings after doing a little local shopping, Social Eatery is worth a look.
I would have to say this is probably the most hidden Chinese restaurant in the city. If you don't live in the area, you're unlikely to know about it. Located on Falconer Drive in Meadowvale is Goldenview Chinese Restaurant, a small dine-in gem that has been around for over 40 years. By out calculations, that is one of the oldest Chinese restos in Mississauga! The dine-in area is small and cozy with a bar and table seating. The food is delicious and seasoned perfectly (without being too salty). The prices are also really reasonable.
1) Tomo Sushi
This gem, which also operates a location in Richmond Hill, recently took over the space once occupied by Sushi Tei. While many residents were sad to see Sushi Tei go, they should be happy that a Japanese place this good took its spot. This place, which offers a small, complimentary noodle dish at the start of your meal, has some of the best and freshest sushi and sashimi in Mississauga. It also offers omakase, which means customers can allow the chef to customize a meal for them. This isn’t a sushi place you want to miss.
