Frida’s Cali-Mex Cuisine

First up is Frida’s Cali-Mex Cuisine, paying homage to Ontario’s Hispanic heritage but with a fresh, California-inspired twist. This family-owned gem serves up unique fusion dishes you won’t find anywhere else, like chorizo mac ‘n’ cheese bites, chicken tamale pot pie, and the cult-favorite churro milkshakes. Cali-Mex may sound like an unlikely pairing, but the bold flavors and creativity sing in every bite. Vibrant artwork and murals transport diners to a hip, contemporary scene that perfectly complements Frida’s modern Mexican fare.

Chili Rave

When it comes to scorching hotpots and fiery Chinese cuisine, nobody does it better than Chili Rave. Fair warning: This isn’t your average “Americanized” Chinese place. Chili Rave delivers authentic, tongue-tingling dishes from the Sichuan province, where the iconic mouth-numbing “mala” spice reigns supreme. Brave souls can attempt the House Spicy Challenge, but even the “mild” items like the beef chili hot pot will have you sweating.
