5) Nomad’s Restobar

Nomad’s Restobar is another Toronto joint that just expanded into our neck of the woods--and its second location is happily situated in Port Credit. The family-owned establishment, which opened just west of Hurontario on Lakeshore Blvd., also operates a location on the Danforth. According to the resto's website, head chef David (also known as "Chile") has been a Red Seal chef for well over a decade and created a menu dedicated to "Global Inspirations—Local Creations." As far as the menu goes, the resto offers a huge array of dishes that are perfect for sharing or devouring solo. 


4) La Carnita

The beloved Toronto-born Mexican restaurant La Carnita recently opened its doors in The Food District in Square One. The restaurant made quite a name for itself in Toronto, as its College Street location is known for its huge lineups and inventive tacos. Now, the resto’s new Square One outpost offers a trendy atmosphere, pulse-pounding music, a spacious patio (which is only open during the warmer months) and absolutely delicious tacos and tostadas that feature everything from ceviche, cod and chorizo to Baja shrimp, cotija cheese and sweet potato. 


3) Guru Lukshmi

This place is one of the most popular South Indian restaurant in the GTA—and for good reason. The somewhat recently expanded location underwent a renovation that closed the restaurant for some months, causing a near-riot in the foodie/Indian community in the region. The service here is excellent and the helpful wait staff is more than happy to explain each dish and chilli level to first-timers. To me, there is nothing more beautiful than a crispy and buttery Masala dosa with three different fresh chutneys and the soup (Sambar), which is to die for. Here is a tip, MAKE RESERVATIONS or you may be forced to wander the parking lot at McLaughlin and Derry for an hour as you wait for an open table. Also, meat lovers need not apply, this place is strictly vegetarian.


2) Capra's Kitchen

Look out Mississauga! Chef Massimo Capra and his signature 'stache and big personality are in our city. Chef Massimo recently opened a restaurant called Capra's Kitchen in his hometown of Mississauga in the former Villa La Bella space along Lakeshore Rd. in the Clarkson neighbourhood. Over the past few years, it’s become a fan favourite. Chef Massimo is an accomplished celebrity chef, TV personality, author and Saugaboy who has an extensive resume. His career began when he first started toiling in kitchens in Italy. He made his way to Toronto in the early 80s and worked in a few notable fine dining establishments in the city. His brand new restaurant offers lunch, dinner and weekend brunch and his menu is full of delicious, classic Italian fare that’s sure to leave every diner satisfied.


1) Thai Signature

A fairly hidden Port Credit gem. This resto offers a variety of fantastic dishes, and their Pad Thai is no different! With a fantastic presentation to match, the seafood version of this Curry Pad Thai will leave you amazed and satisfied. The yellow curry sauce in this dish is what sets it aside from the rest. It helps to decrease the slight acidity that comes with a Pad Thai, while still delivering nodes of garlic, chilli and green onion to your taste buds. The ambience here is lovely and free parking is available.
