Here are the 5 hottest restaurants in Mississauga for the week of July 20 to 26, based on the number of organic page views and searches these restaurants received on insauga.com.


5) Piatto Bistro

Piatto is a long-standing Sauga gem that’s been loyally serving diners since 1989. A fine dining resto on the ground floor of an old-style house-turned-spa at the corner of Dundas and Mississauga Road, the resto boasts an old school but lively vibe and is always full of regulars. The service is attentive and accommodating—something that keeps loyal diners coming back for more on special occasions. The menu reflects Chef Abramo Tonelli's classical Italian cuisine, blended with a touch of French. Born in Argentina and of Italian descent, his daily blackboard specials are abundant in seafood options and other well-crafted selections.

 


4) Congee Queen

After months of waiting, a highly-anticipated (and massive) Asian restaurant recently opened its doors in Mississauga. The spacious, chic and tasty Congee Queen in Heartland Town Centre is a welcome addition to Mississauga's thriving Asian food scene and it hit the ground running with its elegant interior and massive menu. The brand, which also operates locations in Thornhill, North York, Markham, Scarborough and a few other GTA neighbourhoods, is located right beside the newly opened Seafood City Supermarket on Boyer Blvd. As far as food goes, the resto offers lobster super bowl congee, pumpkin hot pot congee with rock crab meat and vegetarian shark fins (which is perfect for shark fin fans who don’t feel comfortable eating the controversial and, in some cases, deeply unethical delicacy), sliced fish and blood jello congee, pork internal delicacy congee and more. As for what dishes are most worth trying, the house super bowl congee is a must.

 


3) 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.

 


2) Twin Fish

The chefs at Twin Fish make a MEAN Pad Thai! This Pad Thai is not overwhelmingly spicy, but it has just the right kick to wake up your taste buds. They add some extra dry chilli on the side for those that are slightly more adventurous with their 'spice buds'. Salt and garlic levels here are just right; not too much or too little. The sauces used in this dish also share the same level of balance, from the first bite to the last. This really is a complete Pad Thai—and the rest of the menu is just as good. The restaurant itself is in the Courtney Parkway theatre plaza. Line-ups do form during peak hours but there is ample parking.

 


1) Posta Italbar Cucina

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--recently 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.
