When it’s freezing outside, there’s nothing better than snuggling up in a cozy blanket and eating something hearty to keep warm. One of the best things about winter is feeling less guilt when indulging in mac and cheese, chili and shepherd’s pie to chase the winter blues away.

For days when you want to escape the cold and fill your belly, here are the top 5 places in Sauga to grab some seriously delicious winter comfort food.

5) Cuchulainn’s Irish Pub

You can’t go wrong with Cuchulainn’s beef stew to keep you feeling toasty during these cold winter months. Cuchulainn’s is a quaint pub located in Streetsville. With live entertainment and a full bar, it’s an amusing spot to grab a bite and escape the cold. With a full menu there’s many choices to satisfy your hunger. But if you’re looking for winter comfort food their Guinness stew is definitely a solid choice. With resemblance to the classic dish, their stew is full of tender beef and lots of veggies. The Irish soda bread that comes with the meal is also a yummy match. If you’re looking for a huge, hearty dish on a cold night this will satisfy your craving.

4) The Wilcox Gastropub

Getting bored of Kraft Dinner? The Wilcox Gastropub has a delicious take on classic mac and cheese. Located at Hurontario and Eglinton, the swanky resto is an upbeat spot to sit back and relax. Complete with stylish décor and a DJ, Wilcox is a fun place to listen to some tunes while enjoying scrumptious food. Their mac and cheese includes large curly noodles, white sauce and lots of cheese curds! Breadcrumbs are also placed on top to add to its creamy and hearty taste. The mac and cheese can taste a little plain, but if you’re looking for more excitement you can add bacon. The resto also offers a delicious meat pie with bone marrow. 

3) Belfast Lounge

The Belfast Lounge is a charming resto with sophisticated décor. The spacious lounge located on Dixie Road is a perfect spot for a casual night out. They have a big menu with a lot of variety. For a chilly night, the shepherd’s pie is a sizeable meal that won’t leave you disappointed. Very similar to the traditional dish, their shepherd’s pie is full of seasoned ground beef and veggies topped with creamy mashed potatoes. Make sure to bring your appetite when digging into this meal as it’s a lot! The dish also comes with a side garden salad. This is a pricey meal but if you’re craving a hot dish to fill your belly, this is the spot.

2) Zoup!

Zoup! is definitely one of the best places in Sauga to grab a hearty bowl of soup. The fairly new establishment on Dixie Road is the place to go when you’ve got a hankering for a hot bowl of your favourite soup. Every day, they offer a variety of soup choices including their popular chicken pot pie and lobster bisque. The resto encourages you to try samples of the soups to ensure you choose the right flavour your tastebuds are yearning for. If you’re looking for a choice to warm your soul, the loaded baked potato is a must! Thick and creamy, this soup has a generous amount of potatoes and bacon leaving you full and satisfied. I recommend eating it in the sourdough bread bowl as their bread is fresh and makes for a perfect combination.

1) Failte Irish Pub

This pub is not only a fun dining experience with its charming Irish flair, it also has mouthwatering dishes. Located near Square One, Failte’s is a feel good pub with lots food choices on their menu. The staff is pleasant and the service is usually quick. If you’re looking for something substantial to eat during these cold times, then their chicken pot pie is the way to go. Loaded with lots of chicken and veggies, the dish is absolutely delicious! The pastry is soft and flakey and the inside is creamy and flavourful. The pie comes with a side salad to help you meet your healthy quota for the day. This meal will definitely fill you up and make you forget about the frigid weather outside.
