5) Hakka Khazana

If there is one culture I think ought to be better represented in Mississauga’s food scene, it’s definitely Tibetan cuisine. I am a huge fan of momos, which - if you haven’t tried - are a type of often spicy dumpling often found in Tibet and Nepal that can be fried or steamed, with both meat and vegetarian options. If you’re in the Mavis and Derry area, you may want to check out Hakka Khazana. This under the radar spot serves up a hearty portion of momos prepared in a variety of ways with a delightful spicy sauce. For a taste of momos in Mississauga, Hakka Khazana is your go-to place.


4)  Buka Maranga Cafe & Catering

Located at Erin Mills Parkway and Battleford, Buka Maranga is a trendy eatery that specializes in bagels, freshly made every day.  With an assortment of different sandwich options, you will be able to enjoy your bagel in almost any way you desire. House specialities include avocado toast and bagel and lox, both of which make Insauga’s Top 5 lists in each respective category.  I enjoyed a simple and satisfying ham and swiss cheese sandwich served on a sesame bagel. For a delicious meal in a casual environment, Buka Maranga is your go-to bagel place.  


3) Thai Signature

A fairly hidden Port Credit gem. This resto offers a variety of fantastic dishes, and their Pad Thai is no different! With a fantastic presentation to match, the seafood version of this Curry Pad Thai will leave you amazed and satisfied. The yellow curry sauce in this dish is what sets it aside from the rest. It helps to decrease the slight acidity that comes with a Pad Thai, while still delivering nodes of garlic, chilli and green onion to your taste buds. The ambience here is lovely and free parking is available.


2)  Nirvana

Nirvana the Flavors of India matches its beautiful food with its equally enticing atmosphere. Spacious and elegant, the earth-toned resto welcomes diners to an open-concept (but with some separate rooms) establishment that showcases classic Indian sculptures, white marble pillars, and artfully decorated glass windows and embellishments.  The resto is perfect for quick lunches, large parties and long dinners, and the food does not disappoint. Two exceptional dishes — both chef specials — are the lamb or goat Rogan Josh (lamb or goat) and the Nirvana Dal. The Rogan Josh, a Kashmir dish, showcases tender meat simmered in gravy and spices. The Nirvana Dal features five Indian lentils simmered overnight in rich spices.  The resto is centrally located at Hurontario and Brunel, and is easy enough to find. A little on the pricier side, two can expect to eat for $40-$45 with drinks and tip.

1) Capra’s Kitchen

Look out Mississauga! Chef Massimo Capra and his signature ‘stache and big personality are in our city. Chef Massimo recently 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 brand new 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.
