5) MyKolachi—Karahi & Barbeque House

MyKolachi Karahi & Barbeque House, an upscale Pakistani restaurant, opened its doors in November 2018 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).

 


4) Sansotei

It looks like Mississauga’s once spartan ramen scene is exploding. Recently, Sansotei Ramen opened its doors in Square One--making City Centre a new mecca for ramen. Sansotei, which currently operates locations in Toronto, North York, Markham, Ottawa and Richmond Hill, is known for both the long lineups it tends to generate and its small but satisfying menu. Some soups on the menu include tonkotsu ramen, tonkotsu black ramen, miso black ramen, shoyu ramen, spicy tan tan ramen and tomato ramen. According to Sansotei’s website, the resto’s ramen broth is freshly made every day with pork bone. Diners can also choose thick or thin noodles and add extra toppings (think chashu, eggs, mushrooms, green onion and more) for an additional charge.

 


3) Kage Nikkei Restobar

Watching the culinary landscape is fascinating, as cuisine--much like clothing and decor--can seemingly come in and out of fashion. For the first time ever, a restaurant that celebrates Peruvian food (and more specifically, Peruvian and Japanese fusion cuisine) is open in Mississauga. A few short years ago, a trip to a Peruvian restaurant meant a trip to St. Clair West or Oakville. Now, there's an option in Mississauga—and it's also great for anyone who loves non-traditional Japanese cuisine. As far as food goes, Kage—which has made its home in the 5&10 area—serves sea bass tiradito, beef tataki, ceviche, karaage, Yokozuna’s street roll, anticuchos, hot stone duck fried rice and more. The resto also boasts a modern interior and a satisfying cocktail menu.

 


2) 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—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.

 


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 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.
