5) Roman Zaman
Roman Zaman captivates you with an extra-sensory experience from the moment you step into the restaurant. It wows you with the vibrant palette of colours and contrasting prints and materials and the Middle Eastern music that invites you into the space. The Damascene cuisine menu includes both traditional dishes and modern takes on Middle Eastern cuisine and includes a number of cold and hot starters. You will also find soups, salads, shawarma platters, saj (middle eastern flatbread) and sandwiches on the menu. The kibbeh section of the menu includes beef, potatoes or helah (fried or grilled). The grilled portion of the menu includes charcoal grilled skewers (beef and chicken) known as shish tawook and kebabs.
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 Cooksville resto benefits from prime spot on Hurontario, friendly service and a reliably delicious menu.
Lissa Genobaga and Damian Kubarski are a husband and wife team who are self-proclaimed foodies and steadfast local supporters who love their community in Clarkson - an undiscovered area of the city that has a number of gems including theirs: a brunch spot called Kravingz. The resto is unique for its made-from-scratch menu that supports local suppliers. They source a number of the ingredients for their dishes from local bakeries and suppliers such as Manila Bakery’s specialty - a Filipino bread roll known as pandesal, produce from A.J. Lanzarotta, and other ingredients from Truscott Bakery and Sheridan Meats. Their signature dish is The Flip Side (house made longanisa which is a Filipino sausage served with crunchy garlic rice and a fried egg), The Polski Benedict (potato placki is a Polish potato pancake served with smoked salmon or peameal bacon, poached eggs and house made hollandaise), Chicken N’ Waffles (crispy fried chicken served with bacon and jalapeno waffles, bacon dressing and coleslaw) and The Islander (jerk corned beef hash, corn and cheddar grits and poached eggs) are so far the most popular.
2) Iron Chef
Iron Chef is located in the weirdest plaza to get into by Tomken and Eglinton. When you first walk in, a modern Japanese restaurant greets you with sit-down dining on one side and teppanyaki on the other. I've heard a lot about this place over the years, and with a name like Iron Chef, you expect a lot. Was it worth the hype? No, but it was good enough to make the top 5. I had the deluxe sushi lunch at $16 and it came with the chef 's choice of eight pieces of assorted fish and eight California rolls. The sushi was done very well and the fish to rice ratio was in favour of the fish, which I always prefer. This place also has daily lunch specials that are great for the lunch sushi enthusiast who wants to save a couple of bucks but has the worst website I have ever seen for a restaurant.
