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 palate 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 such as yalanji (vine leaves stuffed with rice, tomatoes, parsley, mint, olive oil, pomegranate molasses, tomato paste, onions, and crushed bell peppers), kibbehnayeh (raw meat dish includes habra meat, crushed bulgur wheat and spices), muhammara (mixture of breadcrumbs, pomegranate molasses, olive oil and walnuts) and chili potatoes (grilled potatoes, olive oil, garlic, parsley and coriander).You will also find soups, salads, shawarma platters, saj (middle eastern flatbrad) 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.
Port Credit’s Wingporium might be one of the best chicken wings joints we've experienced. This is Wing Emporium’s second location, with the first being in Etobicoke. This joint isn’t too big and boasts TVs mounted everywhere and a spacious patio. The wings were breaded and cooked to perfection and the sauces were all made in house. The flavours are sectioned off into dry, mild, medium, hot and suicide, so we had one from each section. Crazier diners can try the Scorpion Kiss and Black Mamba (which the restaurant actually advises pregnant women to avoid). This place doesn't lack variety, so it's great if you always want to try a new flavour.
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.
2) Kenzo Ramen
Kenzo is the first ramen restaurant to set up shop in Mississauga and it is located on Burnhamthrope just past Mavis. Everything is made in-house — the broth is stewed for 24 hours, the noodles are made fresh 24 hours in advance and the special sauces are fermented for three months. Ramen is Japan’s national dish and it consists of a Japanese broth full of of noodles and garnished with various toppings, which can include boiled egg, vegetables, roasted pork, fish paste and seaweed. Any student (and me) can attest to the fact that it’s damn good when you are hungry. The ramen is usually a couple dollars more than the Chinese noodles. A good side dish here is the gyozas, which are Japanese meat dumplings.
Miga Korean Restaurant is located on Dundas West just past Erindale Park. When you walk in, you are greeted by a large and modern resto that has a BBQ hood over every table. All the meat is fresh and marinated to perfection. Also, Miga has 18 meats to choose from. Also, this is the only place that regularly replaces the grill so you aren’t cooking on a blackened, dirty surface throughout the meal. They also grease the grill with a piece of fat, which is kind of a nice touch. One thing you have to know about Korean BBQ is that most places will only seat a minimum of two people, so bring a date or a friend.
