Par Ontario Culinary/

Mississauga is a food traveller's haven just waiting to be explored! As the sixth-largest city in Canada, this vibrant area on the outskirts of Toronto is home to a diverse population, with over 40 languages represented throughout the community. A diverse population means a thriving foodie scene: at last count, there were over 1,200 restaurants serving up cuisines from over 150 countries throughout the city!

It's easy to get overwhelmed in the face of so much choice, but not to worry: the experts are here to help. In 2023, Mississauga teamed up with renowned food and travel writer Suresh Doss to create the ultimate guide to Mississauga’s vibrant cultural cuisines. Short of Suresh personally chauffeuring you around the city, this pass is the most sure-fire way to ensure that your taste buds get the best that Mississauga has to offer!

We’re not going to give everything away, BUT we couldn’t help but share a few of the spots on the passport and some photos to kick-start your cravings:

  • Bara’s Hut Roti and Doubles

    127 Dundas Street East, Mississauga

    Suresh’s tip: order the doubles with medium pepper and tamarind sauce. Doubles are a Trinidadian street food sensation, and they’re anything but ordinary.
