Any new restaurants in Mississauga or Etobicoke lately?

I'm tired of going to the same restaurants and was wondering if anything interesting has opened up lately in the area?

Spoon & Fork is now open in Etobicoke along the Queensway, near where the Mandarin restaurant is located. Haven't tried it yet.

Nader's Middle Eastern restaurant has just opened near Mavis and Burnhamthorpe. It's in the Staples / SDM plaza on Confederation Parkway.
I head it's expensive, though.

Not really a restaurant, but this place opened up a few months ago. Best panini I've ever had. Only opened M-F 9-5 though since they're in the middle of commercial district, but if you work close by you should check it out.

Strange, I don't see the article. :confused:

Edit: OK, the review is from February? I did not look that far back because I thought Naders just opened recently.

I have very few favourite sushi places here, and you should review them since their both in the west end.

Sushi-Ya Japan on Dixon, near the Shell Station.

and Masamune on Dixie/Eglinton. Masamune has a pretty extensive Korean menu as well.


Let me know what you think.

Hey thanks for the sushi restaurants. I always want to know what other really good places are around. I'll give these a try. Masamune looks nice.

I just tried out this new Turkish pizza (pide) place on Dundas near Kipling subway station. Its called Turkish Kitchen. They also have a selection of Doners aka Shawarmas. Its right next to Subway Sandwiches/Popeyes Chicken and in a small plaza with a Thai place and an adult video store on the north side of dundas. I haven't seen many Pide places in the west end and usually have them if I'm in the east end of the city like in the Danforth.

This is what it used to be. I dunno if I want to eat in there:

BTW, I always laughed at the sign on the right. They must have has some sort of spat with Popeye's to put up a sign right in front of their's. :lol:

Ya i live close by and it was a no brainer to try out something new in the area. I would recommend eating there instead of take out because you get free tea/coffee which apparently is customary in Turkey. The pide is shaped like a flattened football and cut into strips. It will come with garnishes on the side like onions, parsley and lemons. You take the strip and add those garnishes and fold the strip in half. They also have the Ayran drink which tastes like cottage cheese water and goes well with pide.

My wife and I tried Sham Buffet a few weeks. It's located on Dundas St. in Mississauga, just east of Dixie. The place is huge inside, but there were hardly any customers in at the time, and there seemed to be a limited selection at the buffet. Looking at the reviews on the net, some people thought the food was horrible and others found some dishes good and some not so. Anyhow, my wife and I feel it's got potential if they can ever build up their customer clientele for the buffet, and if not, it doesn't look like they'll survive. We're willing to give it another try sometime. Hopefully it's improved by then.

That location use to be China Buffet for years and back in the day it was good low cost buffet. I did check out Sham a few months ago since I've never been to a middle eastern buffet. And ya it was pretty dead when I was there but I found the food to be ok and there was lots of meat so its a good place to go after a workout for a protein injection.

Another place I tried recently was Open Cork on Dundas St a little west of the 427. Its an Italian place that has a great atmosphere, good food and reasonable prices.

Dino's is so irritating because it has so much potential, but "Dino" is too much of a stubborn oaf to actually make the small changes that would make his wood fired pizzas really special

What I mean is, what the hell is with the low-grade, shredded mozzerella? No fresh basil leaves? His idea of a "Margherita Pizza" is shredded mozerrella and pizza sauce. His other pizzas are fine but use very, very average quality toppings and at a ridiculously premium price.

I find it very, very expensive considering the ingredients he's using.

And you have to always deliberately tell him to hold your pizza near the smoke if you like that charred, smokey flavor, because he's too lazy to do it otherwise



So much potential at that place, but his stubbornness ruined it
