Here are the 5 hottest restaurants in Mississauga for the week of May 27-June 2, based on the amount of organic page views and searches these restaurants received on insauga.com.


5) Bayview Garden

I'm just going to come out and say it: this place might be the best Chinese food restaurant in Mississauga. Bayview Garden is so hidden in a plaza at Central Parkway West and Burnhamthorpe that you might not even find it once you pull into the plaza. But once you get in, you are in for a treat. This place is also very reasonably priced. They have a combo that allows you to get four dishes for $34.95. Each dish we got (as seen in the picture below) was very well plated and the flavour profile of each morsel was as good as it gets. It even starts with free chicken bone soup!


4) Capra's Kitchen

Look out Mississauga! Chef Massimo Capra and his signature 'stache and big personality are in our city. Chef Massimo recently opened a restaurant called Capra's Kitchen in his hometown of Mississauga in the former Villa La Bella space along Lakeshore Rd. in the Clarkson neighbourhood. Chef Massimo is an accomplished celebrity chef, TV personality, author and Saugaboy who has an extensive resume. Starting from the ground up, his career began when he first started toiling in kitchens in Italy. He made his way to Toronto in the early 80s and worked in a few notable fine dining establishments in the city. His brand new restaurant offers lunch, dinner and weekend brunch and his menu is full of delicious, classic Italian fare that’s sure to leave every diner satisfied.


3) The Wilcox

The Wilcox Gastropub (featured in cover photo) is located on the corner of Hurontario and Eglinton and is situated in the Wilcox House - one of Mississauga's oldest Heritage Homes which features Greek and Gothic detailing and was built by Amos and Charles Wilcox in 1850. In a place that serves everything from pork sliders to poutine, Scotch egg, ceviche, cassava frites, braised short ribs, an18oz bone-in rib eye steak and confit of duck leg I'm going straight to the burger. This is one of their signature dishes here called The Wilcox Burger and it didn't disappoint. The beef is grounded daily and the only one on this list that actually bakes their brioche buns daily. Now that's dedication!


2) El Mariachi Tacos and Churros

Recently, we announced that we were pretty pumped to hear that a brand new Mexican restaurant was set to open in a city that's lacking in Mexican sit-down restaurants. Now, the newest addition to Mississauga's growing Mexican scene has officially opened its doors. El Mariachi Tacos and Churros has set up shop in Streetsville and is now serving authentic tacos filled with all manner of delicious ingredients, including chorizo, carnitas, tinga, pozole and more. As the name implies, the resto also specializes in Churros. The restaurant has taken shape in the Graydon Pub building on Queen Street South.The brand new restaurant will provide the long-standing Cantina Mexicana with a little extra competition.


1) 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 has 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, Argentina 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.
