Here are the 5 hottest restaurants in Mississauga for the week of Aug 19-25, based on the amount of organic page views and searches these restaurants received on insauga.com.
I’ve passed by this place so many times in Port Credit, which is located on the east side of HWY 10 on Lakeshore. It’s a big blue building that you have seen before too. This place is especially nice in the summer, as it has a gorgeous and huge patio overlooking Port Credit. This is a higher-end Greek restaurant that has a real traditional Greek feel to it. I assume it has a traditional high-end Greek feel to it because, according to our server, the owner also owns a five-star restaurant in Greece. The server also said the only difference between a five-star Greek place and this one is that a five-star doesn’t serve pita.
One of the best kept secrets in Mississauga is Fred's Bar & Grill. Locals and regulars already know this, but the lemon tomato grilled calamari is legendary. This place underwent a reno and the new digs offer 26 TVs and two 80" babies on the wall, so there is not a bad vantage point anywhere in the restaurant. You can find Fred's hidden in a small plaza in central Mississauga. It serves up some of the best bar food and has great service. The old faithful don't have to worry, as they have not changed the menu and still have some of the best wings and calamari in the city. This little place is great for chilling, hanging out, watching sports and getting to know and/or impress someone on a date.
Located at the Chinese Centre on Dundas Street is Blue Lagoon Seafood Master (you gotta love that name!), a higher-end Chinese food and dim sum restaurant. As you walk in, you are greeted by a wall full of sea creatures that are at your disposal to eat fresh. You will see everything from huge Alaskan king crabs to lobsters to eel to fresh fish swimming in blue tanks. This place is absolutely massive and can easily seat 250 people. There are four huge projection screens that were teaching diners how to properly cook Chinese food. We tried the set dinner for two which came with braised blue lagoon soup, eel that was freshly skinned for us minutes before, deep-fried lobster Hong Kong-style, oysters, lobster soup, fish soup and dessert for $98. Although this dinner was made for two, it could have easily fed three. This place is a bit on the pricey side, but the food is very high quality and flavourful. The dim sum is costly as well, but the menu items are a little higher-end. As you can tell by the name, this place does specialize in seafood but does have some traditional non-seafood dishes like Peking duck and sweet and sour pork.
2) Moon Sushi
Located just north of Clarkson in a strip plaza north of the QEW on Erin Mills Parkway is the newest entry into the top 5 AYCE category called Moon Sushi. The resto is deceptively cozy and looks a little grander from the outside, but who cares as long as you get a seat. They boast an old school pen and paper ordering system and standout service, and service in an all-you-can-eat system is key when you want to wolf down as much sushi and tempura as possible while receiving accurate orders. The food was very flavourful and delicious as well.
The new burger resto, located on Lakeshore Rd. E., just east of Port Credit, is actually a 65-year-old chain from Michigan called Bray’s Hamburgers. The resto, which offers everything from classic burgers and cheeseburgers to hot dogs, grilled cheese sandwiches and a huge breakfast menu (more on that later), specializes in nostalgia--it’s bringing the 50s burger back. The restaurant, which seats about 60 people and offers both takeout and dine-in service, is the brand’s first Canadian location. As far as the menu goes, Bray’s offers its signature 50s Burger with lettuce, tomato and onion and the brand’s special sauce. The menu also features single, double and triple patty burgers, fries, chili fries, a number of combos (including a 10 cheeseburger combo) and a slew of breakfast items (including egg and cheese bagels and sandwiches, omelettes, French toast, biscuits and gravy, hash browns, combos and more).
