A hybrid of Korean and Japanese fare, Miga provides its patrons that satisfying and primal method of cooking—via the barbeque. The space in Mississauga, a sprawling 7,000 square feet (replete with a trio of private rooms), can accommodate 200 people at a time, each equipped with their very own table-centric charcoal grill. Featuring an overhead fan to reduce smoke and a sprinkler system just in case, the BBQ tables are also outfitted with a call button to immediately address your queries. A second location, slated to open in the summer of 2009, is appropriately situated at the cusp of Little Korea in the Annex.
There’s something alluring about sitting around a barbeque, and Miga provides ample options for table-side grilling. Beef short ribs, beef tongue in salt and lemon sauce, sliced duck breast, sliced lamb, side pork belly, seafood medleys, spicy chicken breast, and spicy squid are among the carnivorous offerings. Combos are available as well, for groups of two, four, six, and eight, and provide a good sampling of various meats. Pair the meal up with some vegetables, like edamame, wakame salad, and spicy sashimi salad.
Sizzling hot pots
Beyond the Korean barbeque, Miga also serves up “dolsot bibimbap”, a stone pot that is heated to sizzling. Various dishes like beef with mushroom, chicken terriyaki, grilled eel, and veggies with shrimp are served over rice, which becomes perfectly crisp because of the hot pot. For the adventurous, the classic beef with egg is served up raw and cooked right before your eyes in the stone bowl. Plenty of noodle dishes, sushi, sashimi, and maki plates are on board as well. Finish with green tea cake, black sesame ice cream, or some Japanese-style pudding.
