5 Hottest Restaurants in Oakville, Burlington and Milton – Dec. 1 – Dec. 7

Here are the 5 hottest restaurants in Halton for the week of Dec. 1 - Dec. 7 based on the amount of organic page views and searches these restaurants received on inhalton.com.


5. Olive Us

Burlington

This small, yet charming Greek restaurant offers fantastic service that is both professional and personal. With their positive attitude comes a menu that will be sure to delight a variety of taste buds. Pizza is often cited as an Italian dish, but some of the handcrafted Greek style pizzas here will grab your attention immediately! Thin crust with toppings that taste fresh and flavourful, it would be a missed opportunity to pass these on the menu. Their Kalamari is delightfully crispy, but it’s the meats that really come to the fore-front. The Skaras Pikilia is a meat feast of pork or chicken souvlaki, lamb chops, and Greek sausage; any takers?


4. Raging Olive

Burlington

Fusion is the future! While the art of a traditional meal is always sought after, the way the pallet reacts to a foreign yet familiar taste is truly something to behold. The cuisine at the Raging Olive inspires these types of flavours. While Mediterranean cuisine takes front and centre stage on the menu, options like jerk chicken and tandoori salmon make one question how some of the Mediterranean cuisine would be here; fear not! The food here comes to the table a bit slow, but once it arrives you will understand that old saying, ‘good things take time’. Their calamari is grilled to perfection and their mixed grill is a beautiful variety of well cooked meats and fluffy rice, all paired with house made garlic sauce and onion chutney that mixes up the traditional Greek flavours you were originally expecting. Give this cozy resto a try one day if you’re ready for something a little bit different.


3. Chef Grande Shawarma

Burlington

This is definitely an unorthodox mention for this Top 5, but once you try the Grande Mixed Plate you’ll understand why it’s been mentioned. In fact, some of you may even leave a little ‘thank you’ note in the comments. The Grande Mixed Plate is probably one of the best valued platters covered in this article. Currently, for about $20, you get a combination plate of Shawarma, lamb, kofta kebab, souvlaki, chicken breast with grilled pineapples, and a bed of rice, potatoes and salad. The meat is moist and the sauces ensure a savoury and tasteful experience. It’s great for two, or possibly even three individuals. I would recommend ordering ahead as the wait times can be lengthy (often a sign of freshly cooked items).


2. Goodfellas

Milton

The popular Streetsville Neapolitan wood oven pizza restaurant that’s known for its rustic-chic interior, homemade southern Italian dishes and exclusive Italian wine selection, officially opened its doors in Halton at 22 Ontario St. S., across from the Milton Mall, in a former Re/Max realty office. Finally. It's an ideal place to break all of your new year's resolutions. With authentic Neapolitan wood oven pizza, the menu focuses on authentic Southern Italian cuisine. A variety of legit Napoletana pizzas include the Margherita Pizza, topped with San Marzano sauce, mozzarella fiore di latte, fresh basil and extra virgin olive oil. You'll also find Romano pizza and homemade pastas, all made in-house. The Maccheroni alla Carbonara pasta dish includes pancetta, egg yolks, pecorino romano, and black pepper. The mozzarella di bufala, and parmigiano-reggiano cheeses are some of the ingredients they use imported directly from Italy. Goodfellas boasts an extensive Italian wine selection which pairs beautifully with great eats.


1. Borgo Antico

Oakville

The menu is curated and the offerings are fabulous. This cute little downtown Oakville spot opened its doors in October 2016 and is an under-the-radar dining experience when it comes to great Sicilian fare. If you've never been, start with the fried artichokes (incredible!) and order the steak (equally fabulous but keep in mind it's not offered daily since the meat selection is changed up). We also dig the fabulously fabulous burrata-tomato salad! The resto is casual yet authentic, kid-friendly and - more importantly - offers a solid wine list, plus cocktails and beer. Service is very friendly. You must go.
