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).
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 brand 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, a $139 Tomahawk steak dinner for two and more. The spacious and stylish resto will no doubt fill the void left by Ten.
3) Guru Lukshmi
This place is one of the most popular South Indian restaurant in the GTA--and for good reason. The somewhat recently expanded location underwent a renovation that closed the restaurant for some months, causing a near riot in the foodie/Indian community in the region. The service here is excellent and the helpful wait staff is more than happy to explain each dish and chilli level to first timers. To me, there is nothing more beautiful than a crispy and buttery Masala dosa with three different fresh chutneys and the soup (Sambar), which is to die for. Here is a tip, MAKE RESERVATIONS or you may be forced to wander the parking lot at McLaughlin and Derry for an hour as you wait for an open table. Also, meat lovers need not apply, this place is strictly vegetarian.
This is a hidden gem in Mississauga. Their menu is full of amazing options ranging from the famous Colombian platter, the bandeja paisa, to empanadas, patacons, arepas, and so much more. One thing I've learned about South American cuisine is that they know how to make a delectable beef tongue! If you aren't used to it, you may be a tad grossed out by it all, but if you ever muster the courage or are a fan of beef tongue, you have to try it at La Bonita! Cooked to absolute perfection, this meal comes with potatoes, rice, salad, and yucca! These options can be substituted upon request. Finally, their Churrasco. A one inch, AAA sirloin steak that comes out on a sizzling hot plate with chimichurri and all kinds of other flavour! As a side, this dish comes with an entire plate of rice, beans, and sweet plantain; both plates for a very fair $19! La Bonita will make you want to book your next flight to Bogota in a hurry!
Imagine you’ve been whisked away to a Queen West bar. Ever since it opened, this place has been crazy. Even on weeknights, when other bars in the area are dead, this place--which operates one location in Port Credit and another (and newer) one in Streetsville--is bursting at the seams with people and for good reason. Every aspect of this place -- including the space and menu -- has been designed with the utmost thought to detail. The menu is full of interesting takes on southern classics, such as chicken and waffles, maple boar mac ‘n cheese with bacon, Boars Gone Wild smoked sausage, blackened shrimp and gumbo cheddar grits and the boss platter (BBQ sampler platter). All of the meat is smoked with SmokinLicious’ cherry wood and sugar maple wood chips, which gives a nice sweetness to meat.
