5 - Apricot Tree
Franz and Esther Hochholdinger have been a local staple of Mississauga’s cuisine since 1993 serving many Austrian dish favorites and desserts at their quaint European inspired cafe called Apricot Tree Cafe. The roots of the Apricot Tree at one point only focused on the dessert creations that Pastry Chef Franz was known for, but today it operates as a full service restaurant which is located in the Sherwood Forrest Village. Apricot Tree also serves a delicious lunch and dinner menu that has everything from Braised Short Ribs to lamb shank.
4 - Port 229 Bistro
Port 229 creates authentic, homemade dishes prepared with fresh, local and seasonal ingredients. The owners shops at local markets, including farmer's markets in Port Credit and around Square One. They go to Black Angus to pick up their steaks. They also carry a fine selection of wines and even boast a sommelier who hosts wine tasting events for customers. The food will always be a topic of conversation, as one of the most creative chefs in MIssissauga executive chef Dialo Kinghorn creates the incredible dishes. Just look at The Braised Beef Short Ribs. How can you not talk about this? This is a smaller restaurant so make sure you make reservations.
How do I describe this place? At first glance, it looks like a tiny, tucked-away bar. When you walk in, however, you feel like you've stepped into a legit barn. There are deer heads on the wall and saddles all over the place. Oh, and this place -- called The Old Stable Pub -- is a straight-up Polish restaurant.
The menu is small and filled with polish dishes including, of course, pierogis and cabbage rolls (as seen in the cover shot). The server said everything is made in-house and once he brought the pierogis, I believed him. They come in potato and meat varieties, so they're good for vegetarian and carnivorous diners alike. Try this place is you want to see a truly different restaurant! It's awesome!
2 - Lola Foodhaus
Lola’s Foodhaus is a new Filipino-fusion restaurant which serves breakfast, lunch and dinner and offers weekend karaoke and DJ nights. Chef Magampon’s seasonal menu is designed to reflect the traditional flavours of Filipino cuisine influenced with Eurpoean ingredients and techniques taken from his culinary experience. He creates a version of the Filipino national dish called adobo made with chicken and served with an Asian inspired risotto. You will also find popular street eats such as lumpia Shanghai (Filipino spring rolls made with ground pork and a vegetarian option) and Magampon’s secret recipe for Filipino BBQ pork skewers which is marinated for two days and served with a house-made BBQ sauce. Filipino BBQ pork is traditionally a savory and sweet marinade which pairs well with pork.

17 Steakhouse and Bar is by far the most impressive new opening of 2015 (and there are only a few months left).Millions were spent redesigning the majestic 32,000 sq. ft. space filled with over the top features such as a gorgeous oversized fresh water aquarium filled with a colourful array of African cichlid fish that's visible from both the main bar and one of the two private dining rooms.
