While we endure another Stay-at-Home provincial order, it’s still an incredible time to #SupportLocal. For our Oshawa residents in our Charing Cross community, we’re breaking down the TOP 6 take-out restaurants in the Oshawa area. From burgers and salads to pho and shawarma, we’re switching up your meal game and making you hungry for more.
“Plants have never tasted so good.” Mathilda’s is where you want to go everyday. It’s wellness served on your plate, where “mindful meals” are king, boosting your health and maintaining flavour at the same time. Mathilda Irawan opened this vegan restaurant to bring something different to Oshawa. Her vegan menu tastes amazing and are purported to promote health both in mind and spirit. Try their mac and “cheese”, Mie Goreng or the Power Bowl for optimal healthy deliciousness.
In almost every top food list, there lives an Italian restaurant. It’s no secret Italians are known for their food, so including Ciao Amici on our list just feels right. When you live in Oshawa, Ciao Amici is your go-to Italian spot. This trattoria will serve you hearty gnocchi and veal parmigiana with effortless flare. Try a gorgeous slab of lasagna or one of their personal pizzas. *chef’s kiss*
Ready to serve hungry Oshawa residents is Cyrus Persian Restaurant, our favourite place for Persian food. Open for 13 years, it’s become a local staple for the best shawarma in town. If you’re feeding your family, try their family package with kebabs, rice and salad or if you need a midday work from home break, we recommend the falafel plate or the koobideh wrap for something different.
Last but not least is Berry Hill Food Company, created by Oshawa native Sarah Chiapparro and partner Jorge Chiapparro. They serve up the familiar favourites in the form of burgers, sandwiches and wings but with a remarkable twist. Try the Hot Chorizo Smash Burger, Mushroom Bruschetta, their triple decker Drum Chicken Club or the Pulled Pork Wedges. They even offer boxed lunches, so check them out and be sure to order at your earliest opportunity. There you have it! Have you tasted anything from our Top 6?
