The Maharaja is an incredibly stunning boutique restaurant inspired by the regal beauty of India’s diverse landscape of architecture and flavours. The concept offers a visual and culinary journey through three magnificent palaces of India and a menu featuring cuisine from four different regions in India. The storybook menu is divided into four regional cuisines found in India which have been influenced by various ingredients and flavours of a variety of countries including Greece, West and Central Asia and Persia. There are a number of shareable dishes and entrees highlighting the unique flavours of each region through Awadhi cuisine, classic Hyderabadi cuisine, Punjabi cuisine and Rajputana cuisine. The extensive menu caters to all palates and features distinct regional dishes presented on fine dishes such as copper bowls, slate boards, and copper table top grill.
4) Holy Smokez
Located in an unassuming strip plaza on Dundas between Tomken and Dixie is a unique sandwich shop called Holy Smokez BBQ Sandwiches. It's unique because we really haven't seen many BBQ-style joints in Mississauga. All the sandwiches are not only barbequed, but cooked over indirect heat and smoked with wood for as long as 18 hours. You will find BBQ sandwiches such as smoked sausage, pulled pork, and pork 'n' slaw. You'll start salivating just reading the menu.
If you’ve always loved iconic Mississauga hotspot The Apricot Tree, you’ll be happy to know that its ambitious expansion renovation is complete. The Apricot Tree Cafe has always been a local gem and a staple of Mississauga’s food scene, in many ways because of its serene location and rich, decadent comfort food. About a year ago, the owners began moving into the space next door--formerly occupied by Starbucks--in the Sherwood Forrest Village plaza. The cafe recently opened the additional space (it can now seat about 100 people). The original Apricot Tree side opened recently and how houses a modern and chic open kitchen. The new entrance is now in the back, closer to street level, and there’s a new large patio that'll be perfect for summer dining. The new menu includes most of their favourites and some more elaborate dishes.
2) K&B Sushi
While Mississauga has a ton of tasty AYCE Japanese joints, there's always room for one more. When well-known (and for many, well-loved) AYCE joint Sushi Sushi shuttered its doors, some locals fretted over what would take the hot spot's place. Fortunately for sushi aficionados, AYCE resto K&B Sushi recently set up shop in Sushi Sushi's old Millcreek Drive location. K&B, which currently operates two other GTA locations—one in Oakville and the other in Etobicoke—offers a decadent mix of Japanese, Chinese, Korean and Thai cuisine. Like other tech-savvy AYCE joints, it utilizes an ultra-convenient iPad ordering system. In terms of the Mississauga menu, the resto offers sushi, sashimi, maki and hand rolls, tempura, sushi pizza, chicken katsu, udon, soba and donburi dishes.
The Cold Pressery dishes out healthy food and bevies that are made in-house and are high on the flavour profile. The menu includes a selection of organic cold pressed juices and smoothies, as well as healthy snack options, including avocado smashed toast and acai bowls that are filled with bananas, mangoes, coconut shavings and granola. Vegan pies, Danishes and cookies are also on the menu and everything is vegan and dairy-free. They also make cold pressed organic almond and cashew milk and cold pressed coffee. The duo behind the concept are progressive in their creations and continuously add new items to their menu, such as their vanilla chai seed pudding (velvety vanilla chia seed pudding sweetened with raw agave, coconut milk & cinnamon and topped with granola & seasonal fruits) and seasonal offerings like their new list of hearty soups and seasonal pies such as pumpkin pie. The space seats 26 and is adorned with wood elements and chalkboard walls.
