After visiting the adorable Kissing Bridge in Woolwich, we decided to stop for dinner at Ten Restaurant & Wine Bar in Mississauga. I had chosen Ten because it seemed to have good reviews, and it was close to the Port Credit waterfront. The restaurant was huge and very modern. It had a separate bar area and also an upstairs area that seemed to be a private event space. It was a nice day, and lots of people were on the patio, but we opted to stay inside.
I wanted to eat a lot of things on the menu. Everything sounded amazing from the “Small Plates” section, especially the Merguez Sausage Flatbread ($12.98) and the Nachos Agrodolce ($14.95). I also thought it was cute that you could send the kitchen staff a beer! We decided to go for the nachos.
They were unbelievably good! The nacho chips themselves were huge, and covered in 3 year Balderson and brie cheese. Along with the two types of cheese, they were topped with cured tomato, basil and pickled peppers. Everything was fresh and the sauce was spicy. Definitely a winner!
We both decided to get the burger for our main. Tens Infamous 8 oz Burger ($16.98) was as perfect as a burger could be. Topped with truffle mushrooms and Balderson’s cheddar, this burger is served medium rare. The beef was so soft and tender, and well spiced.
The burger was between the best brioche bun that I’ve ever tasted. The bun was slightly sweet and soft, yet it didn’t fall apart or disintegrate into mush from the truffle oil. (These buns are supplied by a local bakery. ) The house cut fries that came with the burger were also surprisingly good! Dressed up with cracked pepper, maldone salt and fresh sprigs of rosemary, they were an unexpected treat.
We actually weren’t able to finish our fries though, because we were stuffed! This wine bar is a bit on the pricy side, but is worth it for the atmosphere, friendly service and amazing food. After your meal you can take a stroll by the waterfront. I recommend this place if you are ever in Port Credit!
