Second Grill

Second Grill

Long before gourmet burger restaurants dominated the scene in GTA, Second Grill in Mississauga was amongst the very few places (in Mississauga at least) that most burger enthusiasts used to visit. It used to be known as ‘Hot-in-Roll’ before it went a management & name change. Second Grill has recently had a management change. The establishment has some seating; however, we personally feel it’s better suited for take-out.

This past Ramadan when most restaurants would be closed post-taraweh hours, we ended up visiting Second Grill a number of times. We enjoyed the food and reminisced of old times. Our favourites have been

  • Spicy Beef Burger with Cheese (yes, it’s processed beef patty, but still yummy!)
  • Zinger Burger
  • Poutine (they are generous with the gravy, so we usually ask them not to add too much)
  • Philly Cheese Steak (it’s been a hit & miss, but worth the attempt; when it turns out good, it’s quite good)
  • Sehri breakfast – which may also be weekend breakfast (halwa, cholay/chanay, shami kabab, omelet)

Hope you get to try their food and enjoy it (and reminisce of old times) as much as we have been. We have been placing take-out orders post-Ramadan and will continue to do so.

Second Grill is located at 5980 Churchill Meadows Blvd., Unit 8, Mississauga. Their phone number is 905-369-0061.

Chinese Wok

Chinese Wok

It’s (literally) freezing cold (-30C with wind chill factor) outside these days and we were thinking of take-out dinner options. We recalled Chinese Wok, a take-out Chinese food restaurant that opened up not too long ago. We haven’t come across many Hakka Chinese restaurants that are take-out only, so we were a little skeptical.

First impression: a good inviting establishment with a modern touch (nice & clean). We liked that the kitchen was visible. The establishment had a steady stream of customers, which is always nice to see.

Moving on, we found that the menu to be quite expansive and interesting; it included unique offerings such as pizzas, wraps & bowls (Hakka Chinese style of course). We only had to wait about 10 minutes or so, which wasn’t bad at all.

We decided to stick to the traditional choices: veg fried rice, chilli chicken, manchurian beef and hakka chicken chow mein ($38.42).

We are happy to share that we enjoyed our meal. Veg fried rice and chicken chow mein were unanimous winners. One of us enjoyed chilli chicken more, whilst the other one enjoyed manchurian beef more. We have only tried a small selection of their vast menu, but are looking forward to going back for more (menu items)! The food is certainly sit-down restaurant taste & quality, which is encouraging. Since this take-out restaurant is in our neighbourhood, we see ourselves ordering take-out food from here than from Eddie’s or Asian Wok.

We do feel that for the portion sizes, it’s a little pricey. Lastly, there’s a certificate indicating their meat is from Amir Quality Meats.

Chinese Wok is located at 3050 Artesian Drive, Unit #9 (Mississauga) and can be reached at: (905) 608-9999.
