5) Hinote Sushi

Hinote Sushi takes the number one spot in the Mississauga sushi world based on the quality of the food, presentation and atmosphere. It’s a small gem hidden in a residential plaza. If you want to try it during your lunch break, get there before noon because there is a daily and loyal lunch rush. Although Hinote is a touch pricier than other sushi restaurants, it is worth it and you get what you pay for. One of my all time favorite Japanese dishes is a spicy salmon roll/hand roll and Hinote does it so well. The presentation is beautiful. The taste is a melody in my mouth and incorporates the savory flavour of their special hot sauce, the crunchiness of the bits of tempura and the soft freshness of the raw salmon. It’s literally an explosion of opposing textures that just works so well.


4) Wingporium

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.


3) Song Cook’s

The best Korean restaurant in Mississauga is located on Dundas by Dixie in an unassuming plaza. Don’t get confused by the sign that says “Soft Tofu” above the restaurant. The door says Song’s Cook. This place looks pretty average from the outside, but once you walk in you realize how big and nicely decorated it is. This place is not as cheap as the other places mentioned and it shouldn’t be. This is a place where you would go out on a date or to a business meeting. The food was very fresh and we ordered the Bibimbap and the Bulgogi. The service is on point and the resto has private closed-off rooms for larger parties.


2) Maharaja

The Maharaja is an incredibly stunning boutique restaurant inspired by the regal beauty of India's diverse landscape of architecture and flavours. The concept offers a visual and culinary journey through three magnificent palaces of India and a menu featuring cuisine from four different regions in India. The storybook menu is divided into four regional cuisines found in India which have been influenced by various ingredients and flavours of a variety of countries including Greece, West and Central Asia and Persia. There are a number of shareable dishes and entrees highlighting the unique flavours of each region through Awadhi cuisine, classic Hyderabadi cuisine, Punjabi cuisine and Rajputana cuisine. The extensive menu caters to all palates and features distinct regional dishes presented on fine dishes such as copper bowls, slate boards, and copper table top grill.

1) Door FiftyFive

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 is bursting at the seams with people and for good reason. Get ready to be amazed. Every aspect of this place — including the space and menu — has been designed with the utmost thought to detail.  Although the food menu is only about five per cent of entire menu (there are only 13 items), you will find interesting takes on southern classics, such as chicken and waffles, Rub Me the Right Way beef brisket, Boars Gone Wild smoked sausage, bison chipotle frank, blackened shrimp and gumbo cheddar grits and the boss platter (BBQ sampler platter). All of meat is smoked with SmokinLicious' cherry wood and sugar maple wood chips, which "gives a nice sweetness to meat."
