Here are the 5 hottest restaurants in Mississauga for the week of Feb 17-23, based on the amount of organic page views and searches these restaurants received on

5) Perfect Kitchen

Another one that is hidden (lost in the industrial area by Costco on Dundas) is a place that is popular among the regulars—and for good reason. This place offers great dim sum (and it's almost never as busy as the nearby Summit Garden) and a reliably tasty dinner menu. Perfect Kitchen, though quaint, is a little fancier in terms of decor. The food here is absolutely delicious, so it's worth the trip—even if you don't live in the area. The service is reliably friendly even though the resto tends to get busy and the atmosphere was perfect. Bonus tip: this place serves great dim sum on weekends.


4) Peter’s on Eglinton

Located on the corner of Eglinton and Tomken is a place that you’ve passed by hundreds of times called Peter’s on Eglinton. When you first walk in you, can’t help but think that this is what all restaurants looked like in high-end hotels in the 70s. A quick scan of this place and it’s obvious it’s geared towards an older audience, and low and behold, Hazel McCallion was having her dinner in the booth next to me. I did see a lot of families here and why not? This place is very nice inside, spacious and the food is oh so good with huge portions.


3) Kenzo Ramen

Kenzo is the first ramen restaurant to set up shop in Mississauga and it is located on Burnhamthrope just past Mavis. Everything is made in-house — the broth is stewed for 24 hours, the noodles are made fresh 24 hours in advance and the special sauces are fermented for three months. Ramen is Japan’s national dish and it consists of a Japanese broth full of of noodles and garnished with various toppings, which can include boiled egg, vegetables, roasted pork, fish paste and seaweed. Any student (and me) can attest to the fact that it’s damn good when you are hungry. The ramen is usually a couple dollars more than the Chinese noodles. A good side dish here is the gyozas, which are Japanese meat dumplings.


2) Capra’s Kitchen

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.


1) Social Eatery Winston Churchill

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.
