5) Bamboo Legend

Bamboo Legend prides themselves on a very authentic dining experience. Tucked away in a corner of a plaza on the South Western side of the city, this place has one of the best Pad Thai I’ve ever had in my life! With a few different styles to choose from, the curry Pad Thai was my flavour of choice. Pan fried noodles in a curry that activates taste buds you never even knew you had! Spice, cilantro, peanuts, and golden curry all mix in your mouth to such a degree that it becomes difficult to point out the exact flavours and ingredients used to produce it. The way these ingredients blend are the stuff of pure magic! This is an extremely high quality Pad Thai, and the best way to describe it may just be to try it yourself! Number one in the city? I definitely think so!

4) Pho Ngoc Yen

No matter what month it is, there's no food more satisfying or comforting than pho—a signature Vietnamese soup famous for its flavourful broth and hearty toppings. And although most Vietnamese places do pho justice, some produce astounding and exquisite noodle soup (and pork and mango salad and spring rolls, of course) and pair it with an absolutely unforgettable atmosphere. One of those gems is the newly opened Pho Ngoc Yen, a beautifully decorated and stunningly tasty Vietnamese resto that just took shape on Kamato Road in the Tomken and 401 area in Mississauga. As far as food goes, the steaming hot rare beef pho stands up against hearty, delicious soup served in Hanoi. So, too, do the crispy Vietnamese spring rolls, served with delicate, subtle fish sauce. Other commendable dishes include the flavourful and authentic pad Thai—a dish that gets extra points for its spectacular presentation—and the vermicelli with pork. Although this restaurant is hidden, it's already getting a reputation for being authentic and delicious. You don't want to miss this one, even if it's nowhere near your office.

3) Posta

Although Mississauga has a substantial waterfront (and one that's slated to undergo incredible redevelopment, no less), its waterside food scene has always been dominated by the popular (some might argue iconic) Snug Harbour. That's no longer the case. The owners of the incredibly successful Toronto gem Cafe Diplomatico—located right in the heart of the bustling Little Italy neighbourhood—just opened a brand new waterside restaurant in Mississauga. Posta, the brand new Italian restaurant, took shape in the old post office location at Stavebank and Lakeshore Road. The chic restaurant boasts 9,300 square feet of space—which includes a vast lakeside patio with its very own bar. As far as dining goes, the resto offers dine-in service, takeout options, express counter service, appetizer bars and wine bars. As far as food goes, there is salumi and formaggi, pizza, gelato and more. Even better news? The restaurant serves brunch on Saturdays and Sundays.

2) Colossus Greek Taverna

You know you've passed by this place, located on the east side of HWY 10 on Lakeshore in Port Credit, so many times. Boasting a big blue exterior, you can't miss it (and you don't want to). This place is especially nice in the summer, as it has a gorgeous and huge patio overlooking Port Credit. This is a higher-end Greek restaurant that has a real traditional Greek feel to it. We assume it has that traditional high-end Greek feel to it because, according to our server, the owner also owns a five-star restaurant in Greece. The server also said the only difference between a five-star Greek place and this one is that a five-star doesn’t serve pita.

1) Piatto Bistro

Piatto is a long-standing Sauga gem that’s been loyally serving diners since 1989. A fine dining resto on the ground floor of an old-style house-turned-spa at the corner of Dundas and Mississauga Road, the resto boasts an old school but lively vibe and is always full of regulars. The service is attentive and accommodating—something that keeps loyal diners coming back for more on special occasions. The menu reflects Chef Abramo Tonelli's classical Italian cuisine, blended with a touch of French. Born in Argentina and of Italian descent, his daily blackboard specials are abundant in seafood options and other well crafted selections.
