5. Shawarmarama


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!

4. Adonis Mediterranean


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!

3. Barque


Go for the brisket … leave having sampled everything because the ravenous carnivore in you will surface and the meat is *that* damn fantastic. Barque Smokehouse first opened in Toronto's west-end Roncesvalles Village in 2011, heading further west to Burlington in summer 2017. Once you’re seated, you’re served popcorn and complimentary sparkling water. Don’t look at the menu. Just order the Smoked Beef Brisket with red cabbage slaw, fried onions, and horseradish mayo. Now, the popcorn. It’s amazing. You might sneeze or cough but you must keep snacking. (Turn the container upside down, RIGHT over your mouth, if no one is watching). The seats are so comfy, the vibe is fun and casual chic, and the meat speaks for itself. For the plant-based lovers in your life, the Chopped Kale Salad is downright lovely, with pickled cabbage, red onion, turnips, and heirloom carrots ribbons. Barque serves locally grown ingredients when possible. The menu also offers Southern Fried Chicken, Baby Back Ribs, Pulled Pork, and Smoked Wings. Service is awesome.


2. Martini House


This tiny-fine dining restaurant provides an array of gourmet, chef-made menu items (and libations, obviously). The hand-made gnudi is created in-house and stands out as a star dish, featuring lemon-thyme ricotta, roasted pearl onions, mushrooms, and walnut pesto. It’s equal parts light yet addictive. Popular items include the delicious mushroom pizza, with buttered leeks and truffle oil, and braised beef yorkies, which is oh-so-comforting on any given day. So’s the cornbread served under the crab cakes. And the chicken florentine crepe is something to write home about.

1. Goodfellas


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.
