I grew up on a staple diet of meat, potatoes and vegetables – and still cook that way most of the time.
A few years ago, a friend introduced me to vegan food. She quickly made me become aware that vegan food is not boring and bland; in fact, it can be just as delicious as my typical cuisine!
Thanks to her, I’ve been able to experience some of the best vegan restaurants in Mississauga. Here are my top three recommendations:
Dai Bi Chay Vegetarian Restaurant
Dai Bi Chay Vegetarian Restaurant offers a different twist on typical vegan dishes by incorporating traditional flavours from Vietnam.
Frequently ordered items include crispy noodles, rice noodle soup and mock beef step with egg noodles. All dishes incorporate fresh, healthy ingredients that help you eat clean while staying in Mississauga!
Located at 239 Cawthra Road, Unit 100, the restaurant is open weekdays from 11 am – 10 pm and weekends from 10 am – 10 pm.
Rather than just dining in, the restaurant offers a convenient in-restaurant pickup plus a delivery service through SkipTheDishes.
As a 100 percent vegetarian restaurant offering rennet free food, Veggie Flames (located at 7210 Airport Road) presents a unique dining selection in Mississauga!
From 11 am – 10 pm daily, the restaurant serves up a huge menu of fresh, tasty Vegan dishes including their famous 100 percent Vegan rennet free pizza! Also included on the menu are Mean and Chips and Kalga Chili with Naan, plus certain cultural dishes such as Dhai Sev Puri and Pani Puri.
Raw Aura Restaurant and Catering
While offering food choices devoid of meat, dairy, egg, gluten and sugar, Raw Aura Restaurant and Catering prides itself on being an inclusive restaurant that boasts a flavourful menu.
From drinks to meals to desserts, everything that Raw Aura offers is homemade and incorporates only the best in locally sourced and/or organic ingredients. Customer favourites include the Burstin’ Burrito, Pad Thai and Chocolate Banana Cake.
Although there isn’t a delivery service, the restaurant offers a convenient take-out option, allowing you to dine wherever you’d like!
Located in the heart of Port Credit at 94 Lakeshore Road East, the restaurant is open Tuesday – Thursday from 12 pm – 9 pm and Friday – Saturday from 12 pm – 10 pm. Be sure to reserve your table in advance or get there early – this popular restaurant fills up quickly!
