5 Places to Get Chicken & Waffles in Mississauga
Once considered a bizarre and unorthodox dish, the chicken and waffles combo has absolutely exploded in popularity and for good reason -- it's delicious. It combines fried chicken (sometimes an entire breast and sometimes just fingers) and a waffle and is often served at breakfast time with syrup and butter.
Sadly, if you're on the hunt for chicken and waffles in Mississauga, you'll be hard-pressed to find a plethora of options. That said, we managed to scare up five places that serve the indulgent southern delicacy.
Located in a plaza on the corner of Creditview and Britannia is Panagio’s All Day Grill and they serve chicken and waffles until they close at 4:00 pm. The atmosphere of Panagio’s is really nice compared to other all day diners in the city. The menu has a large variety of interesting dishes, offering all day breakfast burgers, poutine and, of course, chicken and waffles.
Door Fiftyfive in Port Credit has probably been the hottest bar since it opened a few years ago. While it's mainly a bar (actually, Mississauga's very first speakeasy-style bar) it does have a kick-ass menu selection of southern foods and one of the offerings is chicken and waffles! The chicken and waffles are comprised of buttermilk-dipped, crispy fried chicken on a house-made Belgium waffle. The dish is also served with smoked honey butter, country gravy and Canadian maple syrup
Now we are getting into the chicken and waffles they serve down south. The dish they serve at Kravingz boasts a fried, boneless chicken breast on top of a candied bacon n' jalapeno waffle. The dish also comes with bacon dressing and a housemade slaw (and you can substitute white meat for $1.50). Absolutely delicious! Kravingz is a brunch spot in Clarkson that boasts a made-from-scratch menu that supports local suppliers. The chicken and waffles dish is absolutely top-notch.
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. As far as the menu goes, the resto offers cheese and charcuterie boards, a globally-inspired Wanderlust platter, Kalbi short ribs, yuca fries, tacos, cauliflower pakoras and, of course, chicken and waffles. The dish is comprised of southern-style fried chicken, a buttermilk waffles, jalapeno butter and brown butter maple syrup. It’s not to be missed.
Watching the culinary landscape is fascinating, as cuisine—much like clothing and decor—can seemingly come in and out of fashion. For the first time ever, a restaurant that celebrates Peruvian food (and more specifically, Peruvian and Japanese fusion cuisine) is open in Mississauga. A few short years ago, a trip to a Peruvian restaurant meant a trip to St. Clair West or Oakville. Now, there’s an option in Mississauga--and it’s also great for anyone who loves non-traditional Japanese cuisine. As far as food goes, Kage--which has made its home in the 5&10 area--serves beef tataki, ceviche, karaage, anticuchos, and karaage chicken and waffles. The dish features fried chicken, buttermilk waffles, aji amarillo buttermilk and chicha morada syrup. Yum!
