Bara's Caribbean Cuisine - Mississauga Restaurant Review

June 16, 2012 - Updated: April 18, 2014Restaurant Reviews

 

Bara's Caribbean  Cuisine

Located in the Dundas and Huontario area of central Mississauga, Bara’s Caribbean Cuisine offers tasty and satisfying Trinidadian cooking.  Open every day except Mondays, Bara’s is great for dinning in for lunch, dinner, or you can just order take out.  The “Roti” is a primary staple in Trinidad, and Bara’s makes in my opinion the best in Mississauga.  Roti comes in two varieties, Dalpuri which is a flat thin bread with a chickpea filling or paratha which is a flat bread without chickpea and torn up.  The slang in Trinidad for Paratha is “buss up shirt” as the paratha resembles a busted T-shirt.  Usually the roti is filled with curry chicken, curry beef or curry shrimp.  The size of the meal is tremendous at Bara’s and I have yet to finish all at once so it’s great to share or leave for later.  Bara’s can make the roti to desired spiciness as well. I personally prefer the “Buss up shirt” with chicken or pumpkin when I need to be vegetarian.

Trinidad is also famous for a couple snacks, one called doubles and the other pholourie.  Doubles is a sandwich made of two flat bread (Bara) filled with curry chickpeas, fried and served with tamarind sauce or hot sauce.  Pholourie is a fried ball made of seasoned spilt pea flour and served with chutney.  Bara’s doubles are not too greasy, the pholourie is generous in size and both are home runs!  There is a much larger menu for Trinidadian and Chinese food and plenty of drink options, but everything tastes great.  I often will drive from out of town to Mississauga just to eat at Bara’s Caribbean Cuisine.  After you tried Trinidadian food at Bara’s I’m sure you won’t want to eat at any other Caribbean restaurant.  If you happen to dine at Bara’s ask for Michelle and letter her know you read about her at ToddLee.ca

Mosaic Mediterranean Grill

May 2, 2012 - Updated: April 18, 2014Restaurant Reviews

Just added to the Brampton section.

    Mosaic Mediterranean Grill is highly rated restaurant and number 1 in Brampton at the review site:  www.urbanspoon.com. Mosaic is simply my favorite place to eat in Brampton.  You will find the owner and Chef, Tony is a perfectionist and simply really good at what he does!  The menu is a collection of Mediterranean, Greek and Middle Eastern dishes including pasta, kabobs, lamb, beef, chicken, fish, vegetarian, and Halal if requested.  The kitchen is right next to the dining area so you can see and smell your food being prepared as you wait.  If you are looking for something different and maybe exotic I’m sure you will find good eating at Mosaic as the regular menu is always a good option, but the daily specials are also fabulous!  My personal favorites is the lentil soup to start and the creme brule for desert.  As for what I like for a main course?  I like them all!
