5 - Chaska
If you're in the mood for quick-service Indian street food, you are in luck -- Chaska just opened its doors. The brand new resto, located at Matheson and Satellite Drive, greets diners with a vibrant counter designed to look like an Indian truck. The rest of the decor is equally as catchy, with murals made up of colourful re-creations of Indian signage and industrial steel walls. The menu is small but customizable, allowing diners to get creative. Customers are welcome to choose either a kathi roll ($5.99 for veg and $7.99 for non-veg), rice bowl ($9.99 for veg and $11.99 for non-veg) or salad bowl ($9.99 for veg and $11.99 for non-veg) and fill or coat it with meat or vegetables (or paneer) and sauce and/or dressing. In terms of snacks, the resto offers such street food staples as samosa sliders ($6.99), samosa chaat ($6.99), channa chawal ($7.99) and more. As for drinks, the resto offers a panna mango drink ($2.49), a mango or rose lassi ($3.49), cutting chai ($1.99) and more.
4 - Blue Lagoon Seafood Master
Located at the Chinese Centre on Dundas Street is Blue Lagoon Seafood Master (you gotta love that name!), a higher-end Chinese food and dim sum restaurant. As you walk in, you are greeted by a wall full of sea creatures that are at your disposal to eat fresh. You will see everything from huge Alaskan king crabs to lobsters to eel to fresh fish swimming in blue tanks. This place is absolutely massive and can easily seat 250 people. There are four huge projection screens that were teaching diners how to properly cook Chinese food. We tried the set dinner for two which came with braised blue lagoon soup, eel that was freshly skinned for us minutes before, deep-fried lobster Hong Kong-style, oysters, lobster soup, fish soup and dessert for $98. Although this dinner was made for two, it could have easily fed three. This place is a bit on the pricey side, but the food is very high quality and flavourful. The dim sum is costly as well, but the menu items are a little higher-end. As you can tell by the name, this place does specialize in seafood but does have some traditional non-seafood dishes like Peking duck and sweet and sour pork.

3 - Kravingz
Lissa Genobaga and Damian Kubarski are a husband and wife team who are self-proclaimed foodies and steadfast local supporters who love their community in Clarkson - an undiscovered area of the city which has a number of gems including theirs - a new brunch spot called Kravingz. Unique for: Made-from-scratch menu which supports local suppliers. They source a number of the ingredients for their dishes from local bakeries and suppliers such as Manila Bakery's specialty - a Filipino bread roll known as pandesal, produce from A.J. Lanzarotta, and other ingredients from Truscott Bakery and Sheridan Meats. 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.
Chicken and Waffles

The concept, by Spoon & Fork, is the brand’s first quick-service restaurant.

1 - Fired Up
Fired Up! Woodfire Barbeque Company is Mississauga’s first BBQ restaurant that boasts an open concept, street-side cookery right in the heart of Port Credit. It’s an impressive restaurant-front that exposes Executive Chef Luis Vultao and his team of grillardins who are literally on street-side display, encircled with fire from the woodfire grills where they display their craft. The 1,500 square foot space (formerly a Gino’s Pizza) was completely gutted and is surprisingly more spacious than the corner unit appears to be. The resto design is masculine but cozy and filled with reclaimed Canadian wood such as hemlock and maple, plus 250 year old barn boards. You will find everything from game meats such as venison, Australian lamb from Opal Valley, ostrich, pork belly, wild boar, and seafood such as ahi tuna, swordfish, octopus and prawns, burgers, poutine’s and a variety of salads on the menu.
