Don’s Pick: Tu Casa
Tu Casa is my long-time go-to choice for fine dining. The d?cor is intimate, the service is fast and attentive, and the Mediterranean/Continental cuisine is always good and beautifully presented. To top it off, we were thrilled recently to be offered a lemon-based dessert option. This is a perfect spot for a couple, the family or a gang from the office.

Sarah’s Pick: Spoon and Fork
Located on the cusp of Mississauga and Etobicoke, Spoon and Fork tops my list as my favourite place to dine. They offer an “all you can taste” dinner menu in an inviting and intimate atmosphere, with an array of Thai/Japanese dishes sure to make your mouth water. I love their tempura, coconut rice, and beef with oyster sauce.

Jordan’s Pick: Arirang Korean BBQ
I love all-you-can-eat, and I love Korean BBQ. So when I heard about Arirang, I had to answer the sirens’ call. Arirang offers authentic Korean fare, including all-you-can-eat lunch and dinner menus. Bulgolgi and kalbi (marinated, grilled meats) are offered, as is seafood, all of which include an array of banchan (side dishes). Don’t forget their ? la carte menu, which offers some favourites: bi bim bap (mixed rice) and pork bone soup!

Leo’s Pick: Goodfellas Pizza
I’ve been a fan of Goodfellas from the first bite of their Margherita pizza. This is the real deal, folks—fantastic, authentic, certified Napolitano-style wood-burning oven pizza. Everything I’ve had has been great, including the arancini (riceballs), Maccheroni alla Carbonara pasta, and the Diavolo pizza. But the kicker is dessert: Nutella pizza. For the best Italian food in the city, you’ve got to go to Goodfellas.

Jay’s Pick: The Host
In a city with a plethora of great dining options, The Host stands as one of my favourites. The savoury menu, atmosphere and service all contribute to a consistently great dining experience. Their clay oven provides many delicious dishes, including murgh mirch tikka a.k.a. green chicken tikka. Try two of my top picks: lamb rogan josh and dakshini jhingha (curried shrimp). And be sure to check out the buffet!

Kat’s Pick: Twin Fish
I love any Southeast Asian cuisine—Vietnamese, Thai, Malaysian, Indonesian, etc.—and Twin Fish is exceptional. All dishes are prepared with fresh traditional Thai ingredients: tamarind, kaffir, lime leaves and galangal. Henry, the chef and co-owner, manages to turn his hand in making each dish exquisite and subtly different. General Tsao chicken and Bangkok street-style pad thai are two of my favourites.
