5 - 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.
One of the best kept secrets in Mississauga is Fred’s Bar & Grill. Locals and regulars already know this, but the lemon tomato grilled calamari is legendary. This place recently went through a reno and the new digs offer 26 TVs and two 80” babies on the wall, so there is not a bad vantage point anywhere in the restaurant. You can find Fred’s hidden in a small plaza in central Mississauga. It serves up some of the best bar food and has great service. The old faithful don’t have to worry, as they have not changed the menu and still have some of the best wings and calamari in the city. This little place is great for chilling, hanging out, watching sports and getting to know and/or impress someone on a date.
The new Little Sheep Mongolian Hot Pot opened up in Mississauga on Sept 8 after Labour Day. This will be the fourth one in the GTA and the eighth one in Canada. There are also locations in the US, Japan and China. A metal pot is the centerpiece of the Little Sheep dining experience. Each hot pot is filled with a steaming broth that is decorated with an assortment of fresh ingredients such as goji berries, jujubes, black cardamom pods, ginseng and herbs. Every table has a stove top where you can control the temperature of the broth. You can sit with a group where the stove top is in the middle of the table and everyone shares one big pot, or you can go solo and have a stove top with a single smaller pot all to yourself. This is an all you can eat hot pot experience, so get ready to get stuffed.
Unique for: Mongolian hot pot right at your table.
Food Menu: Without getting into every single thing on the AYCE menu, the standout items to cook in the broth were garlic chicken, quail eggs and lamb wonton.
2 - Door FiftyFive
Imagine you've been whisked away to a Queen West bar. Since it opened just over two weeks ago, this place has been crazy. Even on weeknights, when other bars in the area are dead, this place is busting at the seams with people and with good reason. Get ready to be amazed. Every aspect of this place — including the space and menu — has been designed with the utmost thought to detail. Although the food menu is only about five per cent of entire menu (there are only 13 items), you will find interesting takes on southern classics, such as chicken and waffles, Rub Me the Right Way beef brisket, Boars Gone Wild smoked sausage, bison chipotle frank, blackened shrimp and gumbo cheddar grits and the boss platter (BBQ sampler platter). All of meat is smoked with SmokinLicious' cherry wood and sugar maple wood chips, which "gives a nice sweetness to meat."
FML is the by far the funniest restaurant name in Mississauga which is sure to make passersby do a double take of the resto's sign. It's not what you're thinking - it stands for Fork My Life, a new restaurant concept opening up in Port Credit on Thursday, September 17th.
Concept: Fresh and made-to-order dishes using local ingredients and local suppliers.
Unique for: Smoked meats - Padamsey smokes whole turkeys for twenty hours, pulled pork for nine hours, and beef brisket for 16 hours on-site for his Panini sandwiches.
Signature Dish: Beef ribs
Food Menu: The menu includes a few breakfast dishes, Panini sandwiches, wrap, burger, french fries, lamb sliders, and salads.
