Bismillah Sweets (BM Sweets)

If you know us, you know that we are die hard mithai fans. Ever since we moved to the west end of the city, we have been on the lookout for a good mithai shop.

We heard of BM Sweets through a relative and they were raving about their sweets. Since BM Sweets doesn’t have a website, Facebook group or any sort of presence online, it was a bit of challenge to find. But we did find it eventually in the Heartland area of Mississauga.

It’s a small takeout shop with friendly customer service. On our first visit, we got a small box of assorted mithai. The mithai at BM Sweets is pretty darn good. We particularly enjoyed the barfi and the gulab jamuns. On a subsequent visit, we tried their jalebi and also found that to be delicious.

Whenever we go with our little one, they have always given us a free piece of mithai. Someone sure knows how to win our hearts.

Our family enjoys their samosas a lot. We tried the chicken and veggie samosas that came with free chutney (yes, free). Our favourite are the chicken samosas. Being South Asians, we have a never ending love affair with samosas and chutney.

So the next time you’re in the mood for mithai or need to take mithai to that someone special’s house or you’re obliged to be fed mithai for your special occasion, we recommend giving BM Sweets a try.

Premium Sweets – Finest Bengal Sweets

Premium Sweets

We are die hard mithai fans and always looking for good mithai. We learnt about Premium Sweets, a Muslim owned Bangladeshi sweet shop, a while back, but didn’t try it until we were referred by a relative. Yesterday we decided to pay a visit to their Mississauga store. Let us say that their dessert store is amazing, in terms of ambiance, cleanliness, and presentation of sweets. We were highly impressed by their customer service as they were very professional and knew the products well.

The server greeted us as we entered the shop and offered to help us familiarize with the sweets. Premium Sweets is also known to be very generous with offering samples. Since we weren’t too familiar with Bangladeshi sweets, we decided to sample a variety of sweets. At their Mississauga location, they have a couple of chairs to sit down and try the samples.

Everything tasted good. We did find similarities in names, shapes and tastes between Pakistani & Bangladeshi sweets.

Our favourites were Lal Mohan (Pakistani equivalent of Gulab Jaman) and Chum Chum along with some Barfis. Some of their mithais had different names and tastes, but we’re sure their variety can satisfy everyone’s palate. We also tried their Ras Malai, Rabri, and Kheer Toast.

At Mississauga location, they had all the mithai/sweets on diplay. Once you’re done deciding, they would take your order and prepare it in the back of the store.

Premium Sweets call themselves the Godiva of South Asian Sweets. By trying their mithai, we can attest that you can taste the fine quality ingredients used in their mithai, especially given our own experience with being around South Asian sweets. They do have a wall with a large selection of wrapping papers and other items.

If you’re in the area, we highly recommend paying them a visit.
