A little gem outside of Toronto, Burlington is not just another ‘bedroom community.’ Burlington’s downtown food scene offers more than expected. We’ve put together a list of places you simply must try.
Located at the center of Burlington’s Village Square, Rayhoon Persian Eatery defines curb appeal. This area ties together historic architecture and lifestyle interests. A stroll along any of the winding cobblestone pathways of the square leads to the main attraction of the cultural destination. Deriving its name from the Persian word for basil, the culinary tradition dates back centuries. Transporting guests back in time, Rayhoon’s menu features all halal dishes including grill, stew and specialty entrées. Served with saffron-infused rice and accompanied by a chargrilled tomato, the Rayhoon Special includes one skewer of beef tenderloin strips (Barg) and one skewer of chicken (Joojeh).
Join in every third Friday of the month for their Buffet and Belly Dancing Entertainment night. It starts at 7.30pm. Those interested are provided with unlimited servings of a three-course meal and a show by the dance company, BellyUp BellyDance Oakville.

Weather permitting, diners can choose between the tree-lined patio or the traditional lounge to mix and mingle here. A self-described ‘small boutique-style Steakhouse with a chic urban feel,’ SB Prime is a common go-to for a great cut and an even better cocktail. Grab the lobster sliders just to snack on, or go all out with the surf and turf steak. Whether ordering the filet mignon, boneless rib eye or T-bone steak, customers need to make room for roasted garlic, sautéed cipollini onions and horseradish aioli on the side.
Carry on the evening with a specialty martini or classic cocktail while enjoying seasonal live music during ‘Saturdays in the Street.’ Outside of summer months, catch piano playing in the lounge during cocktail hours Monday to Friday, 4-8pm. SB Prime offers half-price appetizers, affordable martinis, wine and beer specials everyday in the lounge during ‘Power Hour,’ 4-6pm. Take a load off and stay a while.
