Battle Results! Best Thai Battle: Brampton vs. Mississauga
There is nothing in the world quite like Thai food. Known for its liberal use of crunchy vegetables, flavourful meats, savoury curries and delightfully filling noodles, Thai cuisine is one of the best in the world and for good reason—it's got something for everyone.
When it comes to great Thai food, every aspect is important. Is there an incredible balance of flavours? Is the curry sweet and spicy enough? How on point is the Pad Thai? How mouth-watering is the mango salad? And, how spicy can the food get?
Both Mississauga and Brampton are known for their respective food scenes and both offer a ton of commendable poutine options—but only one city can have the absolute best hotspots.

The Top 5 best spots to check out in Mississauga?
