Top 5 Unique Take-Out Options in Mississauga


Published May 1, 2015 at 3:20 am


When you’re in the mood for takeout or delivery, you know that pizza or Chinese food is never more than a phone call or a quick drive away.

The problem is that sometimes you just want to travel off the beaten path and grab a quick meal that doesn’t involve orange chicken or pepperoni. You might also want to wow your guests when hosting a party by offering something a little different.

Fortunately for you, we’ve found some good alternative takeout places that will keep things interesting in your kitchen (or, let’s be honest, on your couch while you’re watching the game or a big fight).

5 – Latin Super Chicken

Cuisine: Latin (Peruvian and Colombian)

Located in Streetsville in the Northeast plaza on Queen and Britannia is Latin Super Chicken, a place that’s been around for six years. When you walk in, you immediately feel transported to Latin America. With Latin music in the background and a small tuck shop to one side that sells items that I assume you would find at a convenience store in South America, the vibe is authentic. The chicken and the recipes are Peruvian with a touch of Colombian. They have everything from baked and fried empanadas (as seen in the cover shot) to churros for dessert. They also have a takeout special for your next party!

4 – Watan Kabob

Cuisine: Afghani

Watan Kabob is one of Mississauga’s premier spots for Afghani food.  Being located in an industrial area, this place tends to get rammed at lunch and dinner time. The food is absolutely delicious. It’s fresh and the price is fantastic.  The same can certainly be said about the party trays offered at this Afghan mainstay, what with its succulent charcoal broiled Kabob, the fresh and fluffy rice and the dense and delicious Afghan naan (completely different than its Indian cousin).

3 – Bairrada Churrasqueira Grill 

Cuisine: Portuguese

Bairrada is located right beside my old high school — TLK. I’m sure this is a popular joint for the GO Train crowd and it should be. The portions are huge, the chicken is juicy and the heat is a perfect balance. You can definitely dine-in here, as the restaurant is massive with one huge patio that wraps around half the building.  Their hot sauce can’t be missed either. This place is also opened until 11pm which later then the other Portuguese restaurants in Mississauga.

2 – Somethin’ Sweet 4 U 

Cuisine: Filipino

If you’re hosting a Mayweather vs Pacquiao fight party why not get some Filipino food? It will kind of show who you are rooting for but who cares? Somethin Sweet 4 U has its roots in baking just that – something sweet. A home business that flourished now has three locations in Mississauga (and one in Brampton) with the newest dine-in restaurant located in the Heartland area. It serves up all your Filipino favorites, including one of my favorites: longsilog, which includes longanisa – a Filipino sausage flavoured with spices specific to each region in the Philippines. The most common types are hamonado (sweet/savory) and de recado (garlic, spicy, sour and/or salty).

1 – Dixie Park

Cuisine: Chinese, Vietnamese, Korean and Japanese

This place is the king of Asian take-out. You will not find chicken balls here. Located on Dixie by Eastgate is the wonderland of Chinese food takeout. The price, selection and quantity of food you get is like no other. We went to House of Pepper at the food court, which is one of the more popular places there. This isn’t the typical Square One Chinese food court experience we’re talking about. We are talking about hundreds of dishes to choose from at multiple locations. Each one of these places also offers a catering service.  So, for $5 to $10, you can buy something for lunch and have leftovers for breakfast the next day. If you are not in the mood for Chinese, you can try Vietnamese, Korean and Japanese as well. The only thing better than taking it out is actually eating there, as House of Pepper has full-size dishes that you can eat directly off the skillet. The only downfall is that this place closes a bit early at 8:30pm.
