5. Game Time Eatery and Entertainment

Located in one of the hardest plazas to find in Mississauga on Dundas near Dixie is Game Time Eatery (formerly Wacky Wings). This place is the like a Chuck E Cheese for adults, minus the screaming kids (but add shouting adults).  There are video games, pool tables and TVs everywhere. It's a great place to watch sports with your buddies, as it's huge. Some of the "TOP PICKS" include New Orleans, Caribbean Jerk, Dr. Pepper BBQ, Rickard's Red Apple Butter Mesquite and Spicy Garlic. 

4. Capra’s Kitchen

Chef Massimo opened a restaurant called Capra’s Kitchen in his hometown of Mississauga in the former Villa La Bella space along Lakeshore Rd. in the Clarkson neighbourhood. Chef Massimo is an accomplished celebrity chef, TV personality, author and Saugaboy who has an extensive resume. His career began when he first started toiling in kitchens in Italy. He made his way to Toronto in the early 80s and worked in a few notable fine dining establishments in the city. His restaurant offers lunch, dinner and weekend brunch and his menu is full of delicious, classic Italian fare that's sure to leave every diner satisfied.

3. Social Eatery Winston Churchill

Located in the Meadowvale Town Centre, this restaurant is associated with another casual dining hotspot that’s been happily serving the community for a few years. Social Eatery Winston Churchill is actually the sister resto of the bigger (and Mississauga-based) Union Social Eatery. Although the menu is different from Union Social’s, it specializes in the same casual dining fare consumers have come to expect from the brand. The menu boasts fresh cut bacon salt fries, Thai curry meatballs, spinach artichoke dip, chicken wings (buffalo butter or Gochujang honey), a bacon double cheeseburger, a grilled chicken club salad, Union Social’s famous almond crusted chicken tenders, cashew chicken curry, steak frites and more. So if you're in the mood for some wings after doing a little local shopping, Social Eatery is worth a look.

2. Kanda Sushi

This is one of the best-hidden gems in Mississauga for both AYCE and a la carte dishes. Kanda Sushi is located by Trillium, so you will notice that a lot of people from the hospital frequent this joint. The interior suggests the resto might have been a nightclub at one point, with a sunken middle section that's unusual in most restaurants. The food and the presentation of the food is always on point. The sushi is always fresh, the shrimp tempura is always crispy and the sashimi served on lighted ice, is fantastic. In terms of vegetarian options, they offer a ton of meatless rolls -- more than most AYCE sushi places, to say the least.

1. Posta Italbar Cucina

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 since the owners of the incredibly successful Toronto gem Cafe Diplomatico--located right in the heart of the bustling Little Italy neighbourhood-- opened a 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 will serve brunch on Saturdays and Sundays.
