Top 5 Unique Fast Food Choices in Mississauga


Published December 20, 2014 at 3:28 pm


There are more choices than the typical fast food chains in Mississauga. Instead of eating chicken on Tuesdays or McD’s the rest try something with a little more flavour and care that will get you home just as fast.

These places might not have drive-throughs but they specialize in food that can be prepared and served quickly.

Here are the top 5 unique fast food spots in Mississauga:
5 – Karachi Kitchen

Cuisine: Pakistani/Indian

Located in a plaza on the corner of Dixie and Burnhamthorpe is a Pakistani/Indian joint called Karachi Kitchen. Flavour, flavour, and more flavour with a shot of heat! In a nut shell, the Seekh Kabab is seasoned meat on a stick, and it comes with two sticks.  It was juicy and had enormous flavour. The Daal Mash (pulses of dried lentils, chickpeas and/or beans) had an awesome kick to it and it made my head, nose and upper lip sweat, along with opening up my nasal passages. The Naan bread was warm and soft. My lunch buddy and I made a wrap that enveloped all of the dishes we orderd –  Seekh Kabab and the Daal Mash wrapped with the naan – a Seekh Kabab Wrap. This invention should be the next great food truck to hit the streets!

4 – Zeerah
(403/Winston Churchill)

Cuisine: Pakistani

Zeerah, located at Winston Churchill and the 403, is known for its Pakistani Roadside Burgers. These burgers will definitely put some hair on your chest, as they are nice and spicy for a newbie. Make sure you have some water at the ready. Once you get used to the heat, you slowly realize how flavourful these burgers are – and you can even get a fried egg on it for some extra taste.  In terms of toppings, you have a choice of chicken,beef,lentils or potato for the $3.19 sandwich. Outside of burgers, they have everything from butter chicken to curry dishes to Haleem and everything you would expect from a Pakistani takeout resto. This is just a takeout joint, so don’t come here for a date or anything

3 – Las Delicias

Cuisine: Colombian

Las Delicias is located in a plaza near 5/10 (Dundas and Hurontario) where I spent most of my high school days at Mickeys. As you walk in, you can smell that this is a bakery at heart. They serve everything from empanadas to Buneulos and Pan de Bono to Arepas and Colombian dishes. We ordered two chicken and two beef empanadas and they were absolutely delicious. Their beef and chicken filling was the best tasting and deep-fried to perfection.

  4 minutes (empanadas)

2 – Dixie Park – House of Pepper

Cuisine: Vietnamese, Korean, Japanese and Chinese

This place is the wonderland of Asian food courts in Mississauga especially a place called House of Pepper. If you eat at the food court here House of Pepper serves your food on a huge metal skillet type plate. When we say huge it is abnormally big and you will be taking half home almost guaranteed.  There is also the choice of Vietnamese, Korean, Japanese and Chinese for you to choose from. We are talking about hundreds of dishes to choose from at any one place. Each one of these places also offers a catering service.  Food comes out quick and seats go fast, so get there before noon.

1 – Watan Kabob
(HWY 10/Matheson) 

Cuisine: Afghani

Located in the back of the plaza that houses a Mandarin Restaurant and Burger King at Hwy 10 and Matheson is Watan Kabob (the brand also has a brand new location in the Dundas and Winston Churchill area). As you walk in you can’t help but notice the serving trays on the counter are all lined up for you with all your utensils to get you the food asap The food is authentic Afghani and the service is prompt and the prices are no higher than usual – starting around $6 for wraps and going up to $14 for dinner options (as seen in the cover picture above). These guys also have some of the best wraps in the Mississauga if you are in for a quick meal. They have everything from chicken, beef tika, kofta, tandori and veggie wraps.  If you are in the area and would like either to do take-out or dine-in, you will not be disappointed at this choice! 

How long did it take for the food:
  6 minutes (the wraps)
