The Wilcox Gastropub is located on the corner of Hurontario and Eglinton and is situated in the Wilcox House - one of Mississauga's oldest Heritage Homes which features Greek and Gothic detailing and was built by Amos and Charles Wilcox in 1850. In a place that serves everything from pork sliders to poutine, Scotch egg, ceviche, cassava frites, braised short ribs, an 18oz bone-in ribeye steak and confit of duck leg I'm going straight to the burger. This is one of their signature dishes here called The Wilcox Burger and it didn't disappoint. The beef is grounded daily and the only one on this list that actually bakes their brioche buns daily. Now that's dedication!
Another delicious South American resto in Cooksville! They have an amazing Colombian platter called a bandeja paisa. When it arrives on your table, you may find it beautiful and/or intimidating. Half a plate of rice, another half of beans, some sweet plantain, chorizo, chicharron, grilled beef (asada), a fried egg, and an arepa... I'll be honest, it was exhausting just typing all that out; it really is a lot! The plate is busy and you may not know what to eat next, but the flavours are truly delectable. Their Churrasco is a notable item as well as their empanadas, and with a good size menu, there are many other tasty options available too. The place is small in size, but very inviting! Some parking is available out front if required.
Just east of Hurontario, Dundas is all mature buildings and long-standing plazas housing everything from jewellery stores to spartan ethnic restos with, believe it or not, functioning and occupied apartments on top (a rare throwback to a bygone era). For that reason, it's striking to see a decidedly modern restaurant—one that's all pristine white wood and chic aquamarine accents—in an ageing white plaza that shows the city's age. Kantene, a brand new comfort food restaurant that combines counter and table service, is breathing culinary life into Cooksville—and it's doing so with classic dishes. Specializing in fusion cuisine, the restaurant excels with its absolutely delicious vegetarian pizza (topped with eggplant and zucchini), flavourful feta-covered lamb burger (complete with a fresh bun from the Rose Bakery next door) and indulgent hand-cut fries. You don’t want to miss that pizza.
2) Raw Aura
Raw Aura, Port Credit’s Lakeshore-located raw, organic resto, is a treat for anyone looking for creative dishes, inventive and delicious smoothies and an honest-to-god Kensington Market, cool hipster vibe. The tiny establishment is super casual and boasts a crunchy, indie chalkboard menu. This place tends to get crowded and the dishes are a little on the pricey side (two can eat for a little over $80 with drinks and tip), but the experience is part of the package. In terms of food, you have to try the red beet ravioli. The presentation is top-notch, and it boasts beets, cashew ricotta cheese, red pepper marinara sauce and dehydrated kale chips. As for mains, the yellow coconut curry noodles is always satisfying. If you want a huge treat, try the Cinnamon Toast Crunch smoothie.
1) Laari Adda
Laari Adda, an Indian and Pakistani street food restaurant that always hopping every night of the week due to its fun menu and affordable dishes. It also offers a bright and colourful interior that draws upon the vibrant decor frequently encountered in India and Pakistan. They switch up the menu every few months depending out what sells well and a new item they have added that is selling well are the fish tacos. They come in mild, medium and hot and if you are daring, get the HOT! With the fish popping out of the soft taco shell you won't be complaining about the size—and the amount of flavour will make you want a second order.
