17 Steakhouse and Bar was one of the most impressive new openings of 2015. Millions were spent redesigning the majestic 32,000 sq. ft. space filled with over the top features such as a gorgeous oversized freshwater aquarium filled with a colourful array of African cichlid fish that’s visible from both the main bar and one of the two private dining rooms. The menu includes a number of U.S., Ontario and Alberta prime cuts of beef, including the tenderloin, strip loin, prime T-bone, porterhouse and tomahawk. You will also find Japanese A5 wagyu and a reasonably priced American flat iron wagyu at $40 for 8 oz. Other options include oysters, ahi tuna, seared scallops, tempura shrimp, fish options, salads, duck confit, bison tenderloin, risotto, chicken, braised back ribs, charcuterie board, calamari and a seafood tower.
Pho Queen City is located in one of the most ethnic culinary blocks in Mississauga at 5 and 10 (Hurontario and Dundas), where you can find just about every kind of cuisine in a four block radius. Pho Queen City opened about a year ago and I feel as though it hasn't been discovered yet, likely due to the location. At a quick glance, the corner plaza is at one of the busiest intersections in Mississauga and it can seem as though there isn't any parking. In fact, there is an outdoor area to park with plenty of free spots (the perks of Sauga living). Pop music plays throughout the restaurant that is doing everything right. It's clean (ranked top three for cleanliness), the pho bo broth is full of flavour and has more ingredients than other places and the service was extremely attentive.
Look out Mississauga! Chef Massimo Capra and his signature ‘stache and big personality are in our city. Chef Massimo recently opened a restaurant called Capra’s Kitchen in his hometown of Mississauga in the former Villa La Bella space along Lakeshore Rd. in the Clarkson neighbourhood. Chef Massimo is an accomplished celebrity chef, TV personality, author and Saugaboy who has an extensive resume. Starting from the ground up, his career began when he first started toiling in kitchens in Italy. He made his way to Toronto in the early 80s and worked in a few notable fine dining establishments in the city. His brand new restaurant offers lunch, dinner and weekend brunch and his menu is full of delicious, classic Italian fare that's sure to leave every diner satisfied.
MyKolachi Karahi & Barbeque House, an upscale Pakistani restaurant, opened its doors in November and is already impressing customers with its unique interior (think dramatic purple hues with pops of vibrant accent colours, traditional cookware suspended from the ceiling, eye-catching murals, esoteric pop culture shout-outs and prayer rooms) and impressive menu. One thing you need to order at MyKolachi? The karahi. The karahi features bone-in or boneless chicken cooked with garlic, tomatoes and MyKolachi’s house blend of karahi spices. The dish, made fresher with a generous helping of sliced ginger, is both fragrant and flavourful--and it’s not the only meat dish to write home about. MyKolachi also offers some pretty unforgettable kababs that you won’t really want to share with your tablemates (but you should).
Watching the culinary landscape is fascinating, as cuisine--much like clothing and decor--can seemingly come in and out of fashion. For the first time ever, a restaurant that celebrates Peruvian food (and more specifically, Peruvian and Japanese fusion cuisine) is open in Mississauga. A few short years ago, a trip to a Peruvian restaurant meant a trip to St. Clair West or Oakville. Now, there's an option in Mississauga—and it's also great for anyone who loves non-traditional Japanese cuisine. As far as food goes, Kage—which has made its home in the 5&10 area—serves sea bass tiradito, beef tataki, ceviche, karaage, Yokozuna’s street roll , blow torched salmon escabeche, anticuchos, hot stone duck fried rice and more. The resto also boosts a modern interior and a satisfying cocktail menu.
