Here are the 5 hottest restaurants in Mississauga for the week of Aug 5-11, based on the amount of organic page views and searches these restaurants received on insauga.com.


5) Zet’s Express

Just north of the OG Zet’s is Zet’s Express Premium Burgers on Derry Road. It’s a really cozy joint that seats about 20. This place sells everything, including burgers, fish and chips, pulled pork, peameal bacon on a Kaiser, souvlaki and onion rings. This place is known for their burgers for north sauga, Malton and the airport crew. The burgers are flavourful and huge, as each sandwich has 5 oz. of meat on it and they grill them as soon as they’re ordered — nothing is left sitting under a light. You can even add peameal bacon to your already generous beef patty. Yes please! What you need to try? The Classic Burger with peameal bacon


4) Failte

Failte is one of the most well-known Irish pubs in Mississauga. It comprises 6,000+ sq. ft. and includes authentic handcrafted furniture and antique pieces to create six different areas within the pub to give every nook a unique feel. Located in the heart of City Centre, it has a lively atmosphere, live music, a wide selection of beers and an incredible line up of events. This place is known for its huge crowds and is the busiest Irish pub on the weekends. Failte also has Mississauga's largest heated patio for when it warms up! As for the best Irish Fare? Always go with the the fish and chips.


3) Sugar Marmalade

Sugar Marmalade is the first and only location in Mississauga that specializes in desserts from Hong Kong and Taiwan. The restaurant has tall ceilings with booths and table seating and plays both Asian and English pop music. The extensive menu includes a huge variety of desserts subdivided into categories on the menu which include: fusion, pudding, soya bean, black pearl, sago mixed, black grass jelly, black glutinous rice, pearl delight, stewed, traditional, traditional pudding, sweet dumplings, cheese cakes, Taiwanese shaved ice, toasts. The menu also includes special drinks, black/green/oolong teas, milk teas, smoothies, fresh juice, slushies, soups, appetizers and entrees. The Golden Treasures Mixed sago dessert (as seen in the photo below) is a compilation of textures and flavours including popping yogurt bubbles (also known as popping boba or spherification, for those into modernist cuisine) which are as fun and as close to popping bubble wrap we’ll get now that the manufacturer has unveiled a pop-less version of the popular packaging material.


2) Mi'Hito Sushi Lab

Tacos have never been synonymous with Asian cuisine, but as fusion food gets hotter by the day, it's not at all surprising—and is in fact quite delightful—to find restaurants that put their own unique cultural spin on traditional dishes from other parts of the world. Mi'Hito Sushi Lab, another creation by the team behind the successful (and growing) Spoon and Fork brand, recently opened its doors in the Courtney Park entertainment plaza in Mississauga and it's serving customers everything from fresh Japanese take away to hearty sushi burritos to—for the first time—beautifully assembled sushi tacos. The resto is the brand's second foray into the quick-service arena, following closely on the heels of the recently-launched Corner by Spoon and Fork. The restaurant, situated in the former Prince Sushi location, is designed with modern sophistication in mind. The grey walls are artfully decorated with tree images, giving the establishment a vibe that's both natural and industrial. At Mi'Hito, you can get spicy salmon, spicy tuna, lobster, unagi, beef, chicken, veggie and tempura shrimp tacos and they come with a plethora of toppings, including lettuce, corn, salsa, avocado, cabbage, green onion, tempura bits and coriander. In terms of price, you get a lot of bang for your buck. The spicy salmon taco, for example, is absolutely overflowing with ingredients (and generous bits of tender salmon) and only costs $4.50. The lobster and unagi tacos are the priciest at $5 each, but the pricing is more than fair.


1) The Port House Social Bar & Kitchen

You know how the old saying goes--when one door closes, another one opens. In this case, the closure of long-standing restobar Ten Restaurant + Wine Bar has led to the opening of the brand Port House Social Bar and Kitchen. Recently, the “premium casual” restaurant and lounge opened its doors and is now offering a fairly extensive wine, cocktail and dine-in menu. In terms of beverages, the resto boasts a healthy cocktail list and a decent assortment of on tap beer, including Shock Top and Goose Island IPA. As far as wine goes, the offerings are extensive (as they should be). Vino aficionados can sip on Kim Crawford’s New Zealand Pinot Noir, Argentina Malbecs, Italian Pinot Grigios and more. As far as food goes, the resto offers calamari, hot Korean wings, tuna poke wontons, a variety of pizzas, signature burgers, salmon, fish and chips, gnocchi rose ,a $139 Tomahawk steak dinner for two and more. The spacious and stylish resto will no doubt fill the void left by Ten.
