This Mississauga plaza is a foodie’s gold mine

This Mississauga plaza is a foodie’s gold mine
Top Stories
Officially called Cawthra Holdings, this two-story plaza north of the QEW in Mississauga doesn’t look very remarkable outside of its green roofs, but there is a reason why the parking lot is so often full by the late morning and some of the shops have lineups: this is one of the best places for food in the Greater Toronto Area.

There aren’t many signs or indicators (or menus for that matter) at 2395 and 2399 Cawthra Rd. to make it known, but this is the place where diners can find one of the GTA’s few fully vegetarian Vietnamese restaurants; Iraqi caterers that do gigantic platters and freshly baked bread, or if you ask nicely, an off-menu takeout lunch; a Palestinian-style dairy shop that makes its own ice cream, ghee and cheese; and a bulk food shop that roasts its own nuts (they are so good you won’t want to return to prepackaged stuff).

Rather than doing neighbourhood guides, we’ll be eating through a suburban plaza every once in awhile. This week, we take a look (and of course, a lot of bites) at where to get a full day of meals (and leftovers) to make this Mississauga plaza a worthwhile visit. Invite friends, bring an empty stomach and make room in the fridge.
