Here are the 5 hottest restaurants in Mississauga for the week of Jan. 11 - 17, based on the number of organic page views and searches these restaurants received on insauga.com.


5) Pizzeria Dei Sassi

While the Dixie and Eglinton area can be a slightly tougher one to drive in during high-traffic times, it’s not a section of the city you want to miss when you’re in the mood for good food. The neighbourhood is home to a high-end steakhouse, a long-standing nightclub, a beloved Hakka restaurant and a family-run Italian place called Pizzeria Dei Sassi. Pizzeria Dei Sassi, which boasts a sleek and modern interior, offers a delicious prosciutto panino that’s filled with prosciutto (naturally), pesto, mozzarella and tomatoes. It’s filling, but not too filling—and it’ll more than tide you over until dinner. The rest of the menu is just as good, making the restaurant perfect for a casual lunch or dinner. 

 


4) Border MX

This authentic Mexican place has garnered a lot of attention since it opened because Mississauga doesn’t have many Mexican joints like it. The chef is from Mexico, so she knows her stuff and makes truly authentic dishes in her Mexican kitchen. The menu offers traditional Mexican dishes, including fajitas, tamales, flautas and pork carnitas. Friday and Saturday nights are reserved for Chef Rico’s regional Mexican specials such as Tongue Tacos (self-explanatory) and Pozole (a soup made of pork or chicken broth with hominy and other garnishes). The somewhat newly-opened Streetsville resto benefits from a prime spot in one of the city’s best neighbourhoods, friendly service and a reliably delicious menu.

 


3) 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 led to the opening of the 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, Argentine 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, and more. 

 


2) Posta

Although Mississauga has a substantial waterfront (and one that's slated to undergo incredible redevelopment, no less), its waterside food scene has always been dominated by the popular (some might argue iconic) Snug Harbour. That's no longer the case. The owners of the incredibly successful Toronto gem Cafe Diplomatico—located right in the heart of the bustling Little Italy neighbourhood—just opened a brand new waterside restaurant in Mississauga. Posta, the brand new Italian restaurant, took shape in the old post office location at Stavebank and Lakeshore Road. The chic restaurant boasts 9,300 square feet of space—which includes a vast lakeside patio with its very own bar. As far as dining goes, the resto offers dine-in service, takeout options, express counter service, appetizer bars and wine bars. As far as food goes, there is salumi and formaggi, pizza, gelato and more.

 


1) Maharaja

The Maharaja is an incredibly stunning boutique restaurant inspired by the regal beauty of India’s diverse landscape of architecture and flavours. The concept offers a visual and culinary journey through three magnificent palaces of India and a menu featuring cuisine from four different regions in India. The storybook menu is divided into four regional cuisines found in India which have been influenced by various ingredients and flavours of a variety of countries including Greece, West and Central Asia and Persia. There are a number of shareable dishes and entrees highlighting the unique flavours of each region through Awadhi cuisine, classic Hyderabadi cuisine, Punjabi cuisine and Rajputana cuisine. The extensive menu caters to all palates and features distinct regional dishes presented on fine dishes such as copper bowls, slate boards, and copper tabletop grill.
