5 - Belfast Lounge
If you want a real Irish Pub in Mississauga, Belfast Lounge is the place for you. The owner is from Belfast, so there is no faking around here. This place has been around for 16 years and is directly beside Yuk Yuk's on Dixie. As you walk in, you can't help feel that this is what a pub would feel like in Ireland. It boasts beautiful wood finishing throughout a surprisingly large space. Our only complaint is that they need some new signage, as the outdoor aesthetic does not reflect what's inside. I would say that Belfast is a higher-end Irish pub than most, with an area in the back where you can enjoy nicer leather chairs and sophisticated booths. The food here is the best we've had in any Irish pub in Mississauga. We ordered the most Irish thing on the menu -- the "Traditional Irish Stew." The stew was cooked to perfection and the meat was as tender as it gets. We also had the calamari, which was very flavourful and came with a chipotle mayo that was made in-house. Oh, and the Guinness was poured to perfection!

Signature Dish: The Flip Side (house made longanisa which is a Filipino sausage served with crunchy garlic rice and a fried egg), The Polski Benedict (potato placki is a Polish potato pancake served with smoked salmon or peameal bacon, poached eggs and house made hollandaise), Chicken N’ Waffles (crispy fried chicken served with bacon and jalapeno waffles, bacon dressing and coleslaw) and The Islander (jerk corned beef hash, corn and cheddar grits and poached eggs) are so far the most popular.
