This Ford Dr. joint opened in 2016 and is now my go-to spot for a quick sandwich in southeast Oakville. After driving past numerous times, I finally decided to check it out and dude, have I been missing out! The combination of tahini, garlic sauce, and hot sauce drizzled over fresh chicken, tomatoes, lettuce, pickles, and turnips sent me over the edge. You’ve got to try this shawarma, and order it fully loaded. Best of all, it’s cheap!
Seasoned with Middle Eastern spices and served with a special Lebanese twist, this burger was surprisingly delicious. A well-done patty, house-made, was complemented by lettuce, tomato, and garlic sauce (complete with a smiley face!) and a soft sesame-seed bun. The unassuming restaurant in a residential plaza on Pinegrove Rd. is a west-end staple and favourite in Oakville, and now you know they’ve also got great burgers!
Grill or griddle?: Grill
If you’re an Indian food lover in Burlington, I don’t think this comes as a surprise to you. They’ve been around for some time and have established themselves as one of the premier Indian restaurants in the city. The basics like Butter Chicken, and Palak Paneer are made beautifully. This is often a good indicator of what the rest of their menu will be like. Their Biryani is no different! A colourful and fluffy rice dish with spices and meats (or meat substitutes), a Biryani is often had as a meal all by itself. At times it’s accompanied with a yogurt-based sauce that is meant to moisten and possibly cool down the spice of the dish itself. While Bombay Grill’s biryani is not too spicy, it is incredibly flavourful and a must try on their menu!
Although India is one third the size of Canada, its population density makes it more than 34 times larger than that of the true north. With such a large population, it’s no surprise that its cuisine can differ so greatly from state to state. Prince of India’s menu has gone so far as to offer dishes from the tiny state of Goa, India. Prawn Masala, Chicken Vindaloo, and Goan Fish Curry are all interesting options on their menu, along with some Indian classics like Butter Chicken and Palak Paneer. With over 8 different types of bread and Hakka items as well, this resto has a few interesting options if you’re looking to try some different.
This elegant Main St. resto is perfect for a date … a pizza date. As soon as I enter I’m greeted, whisked to a table, and promptly served. The sounds of Frank Sinatra fill the elegant, open concept space, where it’s warm and inviting, with tons of natural light. My Neapolitan pizza - with organic natural yeast - was lit up in a wood-fire oven, then served piping hot. It’s incredible, with a very thin crust, and the toppings (namely salomi ) were phenomenal. It’s so simple (tomato sauce, Buffalo Mozzarella, basil, and extra virgin olive oil) yet so scrumptious. Service was absolutely outstanding — never have I seen a restaurant where all staff are smiling and happy. No wonder diners have been flocking here since 2002. If you haven’t been to Pasqualino, check it out - when you’re not in a rush - and savour the best pizza in Milton!
