Finding Halal restaurants in the GTA is not a hard task, it’s actually quite easy. Finding a good Halal restaurant, that’s another story.
Over the weekend we went to Paramount Fine Foods – a Lebanese restaurant in Mississauga. This is one of our go-to restaurants for Arabic food; the food is yummy and the portion size is huge. Can’t go wrong with that, can you?
Food Items Not To Be Missed
- Manakeesh: This is similar to pizza – dough topped off with cheese and other toppings such as ground beef, herbs, tomato, etc. Paramount has the most yummylicious Manakeesh around the GTA
- Hummus: yum, yum, yum!
- Pastries and Other Sweets: Hands down, the freshest Baklawa around – some of the cookies are divine too
Although I get the falafel almost every time I go here, it’s not that great. I have yet to eat amazing Falafel in Toronto – why are they always so heavy and dense? I’d recommend getting a couple of different types of Manakeesh instead.
I’m not going to write much – the pictures can do the talking today.
It was my birthday over the weekend and as per tradition, Nouman and I got birthday burgers for lunch. We went to Big Smoke Burger (formerly Craft Burger) and it was delish as usual. I ordered the Crazy Burger with a Veggie Patty and Nouman got a Red Burger with Halal Chicken. Yes, they have Halal Chicken! I emailed their main office and received confirmation that their chicken is Halal – however, since they do not advertise it, they can change their chicken supplier at any time without informing their customers – so always call and verify before eating the chicken!
