This Very Unique Cuisine Offers a Must Try Full Dining Experience in Mississauga

 

Afghan food is as delicious as it is unique, and you've probably enjoyed some of it in the past — but have you ever had it like this?

Most Afghan restaurants in the GTA are quick-serve/fast food joints, which can be fine for a quick meal but doesn't add much to the overall experience.

You're invited to get the full experience with Bread & Salt Afghan Cuisine, a gorgeous Mississauga restaurant with one goal: to introduce delicious Afghan cuisine to the world!

Yes, the days of it being a niche cuisine in Mississauga are long gone. Whether you're an adventurous foodie, a more risk-averse eater, or just looking for the perfect place to dine out with the family, nothing hits the spot quite like Afghan food! And if you've never had it before, Bread & Salt Afghan Cuisine is more than happy to be your first.

You may be wondering: What is traditional Afghan cuisine and what distinguishes it from other Middle Eastern food?

Afghan cuisine is mainly influenced by that of Persia (Iran), India and Mongolia. But while all those cultures play a part, Afghan cuisine has a style that's all its own. For example, Afghans tend to like their food not too spicy or hot, opting instead to enhance rice dishes with dried fruit and nuts, and use yoghurt as a dressing on various dishes. Additionally, onions play a part in almost everything, meat is featured prominently, and mint is often used as garnish.

Unlike the fast food nature of most other Afghan restaurants, Bread & Salt Afghan Cuisine offers Mississauga’s first full-service, sit-down restaurant for Afghan food.

The jewel in their crown is their ceramic grill, a unique feature you won't see in most other eateries. It uses no charcoal and it excels in cooking meat quickly and evenly, creating perfectly cooked dishes that you'll especially appreciate during the lunch rush!

With that all said, let's get to the real meat (no pun intended) of the matter: What can you expect to find on Bread & Salt Afghan Cuisine's extensive menu?

One look at their menu and you'll know the restaurant offers something for everyone, with a wide array of delicious grilled dishes, rice dishes, sides, appetizers, vegetarian dishes, meats and fish, and much more - all fresh, Halal, and made to order.

Try one of the restaurant's six mouth-watering mixed grills, or go for the tried and true with the Lamb Shank, cooked to tender perfection and served with Qabilee palow (steamed rice mixed with raisins, carrots, and lamb) or salad and naan. You also can't go wrong with the Tandoori Chicken! Bread & Salt Afghan Cuisine's zesty house-made sauces (cilantro, tomato, garlic and more) are ready to spice up any dish you desire.

The restaurant emphasizes the delicious Halal offerings on its menu, which allow it to serve meat-based dishes to many more people than other restaurants can.

For the non-meat-eaters in the crowd, choose from a selection of vegetarian/vegan dishes including the mixed veggies, grilled potato, or the Sabzi Palak, a spinach dish cooked in the traditional Afghan style.

On top of being a fantastic dinner spot, their under $7 lunch deals make the perfect midday meals, and the super-fast preparation time means less waiting and more eating. It's all the speed and convenience you'd expect from a fast food joint, but with the high quality menu and atmosphere of an upscale eatery!

Wash your meal down with a variety of refreshing and sweet drinks, including dogh (a traditional yogurt-based drink), mango smoothie, limonana, or a pina colada.

Whether you're looking for a healthy option or just want to experience some amazing dishes you simply can't make at home, it's time to do yourself a favour and visit Bread & Salt Afghan Cuisine!
