Officially called Cowthra Holdings, this two-story plaza just north of QEW in Mississauga doesn’t look very remarkable outside of its green roofs, but there’s a reason the parking lot is often packed in the late mornings and few shops. The lineup is: This is one of the best places to dine in the Greater Toronto Area.
There aren’t many signs or indicators (or menus for that matter) at 2395 and 2399 Kavthra Road. To make it known, but this is where diners can find one of GTA’s few full vegetarian Vietnamese restaurants; Iraqi caterers who serve large platters and freshly baked bread, or if you kindly ask, an off-menu takeout lunch; a Palestinian-style dairy shop that makes its own ice cream, ghee and cheese; And a bulk food store that roasts its own nuts (they’re so good you won’t want to go back to the prepackaged stuff).
Instead of having a neighborhood guide, we’d dine through a suburban plaza every once in a while. This week, we take a look at where to get (and of course, plenty of bites) a full day of food (and leftovers) to make this Mississauga Plaza a worthwhile trip. Call friends, bring on an empty stomach and make room in the fridge.
