5) Sushi Tei
It offers freebies to start — and if you’re really lucky, they offer another midway through your dinner, such as a seared fish (which might be close to expiring, but it’s still a nice touch and it prevents waste). I always seem to leave Sushi Tei stuffed like a Build-A-Bear, so if you are super hungry for good quality food, then Sushi Tei is the place to be. It is a large yet cozy venue that offers private booths as well as tables. Their menu is expansive and they offer both Japanese and Korean cuisine.
The only pizza joint that has been visited by “You Gotta Eat Here” is Mickey's Pizza, and with good reason. Mickey’s is located in Clarkson, a quaint village located in the most southwest area of Mississauga in a small and unassuming plaza. Just look out for their mascot — a giant inflatable green dragon perched on top of the building. Mickey’s serves traditional pizzas plus what they call a “Killer King,” which is a deep dish Chicago-style pizza for the hungry Chi Town-style pizza lovers. They use the best ingredients possible. The dough is made in house, they use ingredients like extra virgin olive oil and they cook their meat right on the grill before it goes into your pizza.
Chilli Chicken house is located in a plaza at Creditview and Burnhamthorpe. I got there at 9pm to avoid the rush and was surprised to find the place packed with young diners. It’s not a trendy or modern looking place, so I guess they know something that I don’t. When I got there, I was greeted by the owner. He asked me if it was the first time and i said yes. A smile fell upon his face and he went into his elevator pitch that started with “Welcome to Chilli Chicken...” You can tell he is passionate about what he does and you can definitely tell through his food. We had the Manchurian chicken and the Chilli Calamari, which had the most heat out of all the dishes we had on this list. Where are the napkins for my forehead?
This exceedingly creative gem sits on the Mississauga and Brampton border and offers an incredible array of North American and Indian fusion dishes. It’s truly one of a kind, and offers such creative concoctions as jerk chicken samosas, apple pie samosas, butter chicken mac n’ cheese, butter chicken loaded fries and, most importantly, the Punjabi cheeseburger with tandoori bacon. Founded by Rick Matharu, a Recipe to Riches winner who took the top spot for his butter chicken lasagna, the restaurant does something decidedly unique and pays homage to two distinct food cultures. This is not a burger you want to miss.
Anyone who has ever dined in downtown Oakville no doubt knows that that the town to our west boasts a strong and perhaps underrated food scene that features a number of independent gems that combine on-trend menu items with a classic upscale dining experience. For that reason, some people were excited to hear that the team behind Oakville's popular Noble Bistro took over Tu Casa restaurant in Lorne Park early in the New Year. As far as food goes, diners can indulge in the resto’s finer dining farm-to-fork fare, which includes Dufferin County beef tartare, roasted foie gras, braised rabbit gnocchi, butter poached halibut, eggplant lasagna and more. Restaurant operators say the menu will change and evolve, as it will be inspired by “fresh and local foods and ingredients.”
