You can’t really miss this quaint little restaurant that’s located in the heart of Port Credit. If you are one of the lucky people who actually get a seat, you are in for a treat. This place has a rustic Italian-inspired dining room and is a great spot to enjoy your pizza, which is cooked in a stone oven. Papa Giuseppe’s also serves house-made gnocchi and I can never say no to that. They also serve a selection of antipasti, including insalata caprese, and a wide selection of pastas including Nona’s Pasta Campania or carbonara (marche). If you are lucky enough, try to get a seat directly in front of the kitchen so you can eat and watch the chef and cooking staff do their thing. In the summer months, they have a really nice patio they open up at the back of the restaurant. If you are on a date and you get into this place you look like a Don Juan!
Port Credit's Wingporium might be one of the best chicken wings joints we’ve experienced. This is Wing Emporium's second location, with the first being in Etobicoke. This joint isn't too big and boasts TVs mounted everywhere and a spacious patio. The wings were breaded and cooked to perfection and the sauces were all made in house. The flavours are sectioned off into dry, mild, medium, hot and suicide, so we had one from each section. Crazier diners can try the Scorpion Kiss and Black Mamba (which the restaurant actually advises pregnant women to avoid). This place doesn’t lack variety, so it’s great if you always want to try a new flavour.
3) Hinote Sushi
Hinote Sushi takes the number one spot based on the quality of the food, presentation and atmosphere. It’s a small gem hidden in a residential plaza. If you want to try it during your lunch break, get there before noon because there is a daily and loyal lunch rush. Although Hinote is a touch pricier than other sushi restaurants, it is worth it and you get what you pay for. One of my all time favorite Japanese dishes is a spicy salmon roll/hand roll and Hinote does it so well. The presentation is beautiful. The taste is a melody in my mouth and incorporates the savory flavour of their special hot sauce, the crunchiness of the bits of tempura and the soft freshness of the raw salmon. It’s literally an explosion of opposing textures that just works so well.
2) Roc'n Doc's
You want a patio? You've come to the right place—especially since summer is finally here. Located in the heart of Port Credit, Roc'n Docs features live music every night of the week and is a staple in the live music scene in Mississauga. The venue has made it onto a number of Top 5 lists, including best patio, top Port Credit bars and more. The resto's main level is equipped with a stage and the second level boasts one of the best rooftop patios the city has to offer. This casual restaurant offers a menu of pub-style eats, a variety of cocktails and beer.
Imagine you've been whisked away to a Queen West bar. Ever since it opened, this place has been crazy. Even on weeknights, when other bars in the area are dead, this place is bursting at the seams with people and for good reason. Get ready to be amazed. Every aspect of this place — including the space and menu — has been designed with the utmost thought to detail. Although the food menu is only about five per cent of entire menu (there are only 13 items), you will find interesting takes on southern classics, such as chicken and waffles, Rub Me the Right Way beef brisket, Boars Gone Wild smoked sausage, bison chipotle frank, blackened shrimp and gumbo cheddar grits and the boss platter (BBQ sampler platter). All of meat is smoked with SmokinLicious' cherry wood and sugar maple wood chips, which "gives a nice sweetness to meat."
