5) Amantra Food Fusion

If you’re looking for Indian food that’s tasty, creative, unique and accompanied by a well-crafted fine dining atmosphere (without fine dining prices), you might be happy to hear that a brand new Indian fusion restaurant is calling Mississauga’s quaint Streetsville neighbourhood home. Amantra Food Fusion, an elegant but affordable Indian and Asian/North American fusion restaurant that just opened on Queen St. S., offers an expansive menu filled with fun fusion appetizers, traditional curries, authentic desserts and more. Some choice favourites? The amazing mac n' cheese butter chicken, the cheeseburger egg rolls and Amantra's special chaat.


4) Clarkson Mediterranean Bistro

The Clarkson Mediterranean Bistro is a gem of a find in the small and quaint Clarkson Village neighbourhood located west of Port Credit. The Clarkson Mediterranean Bistro is a restaurant that’s now on our list of go-to places to dine in Mississauga. We're often floored by the level of service, the flavours, the quality of the food and the affordable pricing. This resto is a prime example of the benefits of supporting local restaurants over the big chains.


3) 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 night club 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.


2) The Pumphouse Grill

Are you in the mood for casual food? Do you love nachos? If so, you want to hit this place. By far the biggest plate we encountered on our nacho trip was the one we had at The Pumphouse Grill on the northwest corner of Lakeshore Rd. E and Stavebank Rd. in the heart of Port Credit. The picture does not do the plate justice. We ordered the pulled pork nachos and our eyes almost popped out once we realized how big they were. This order would definitely be good for four dudes after a softball game. The nachos had enough cheese to cover the mountain of chips and the pulled pork was moist, fresh and flavourful and was complimented by the other toppings. We had to take more than half home in a full size pizza box!


1) Guru Lukshmi

This place is one of the most popular South Indian restaurant in the GTA—and for good reason. The recently expanded location has undergone a renovation that closed the restaurant for some months, causing a near riot in the foodie/Indian community in the region. The service here is excellent and the helpful wait staff is more than happy to explain each dish and chilli level to first timers. To me, there is nothing more beautiful than a crispy and buttery Masala dosa with three different fresh chutneys and the soup (Sambar), which is to die for. Here is a tip, MAKE RESERVATIONS or you may be forced to wander the parking lot at Mclaughlan and Derry for an hour as you wait for an open table. Also, meat lovers need not apply, this place is strictly vegetarian.
