Lion City isn’t fancy (it’s in a strip mall), but the food is really good and the prices are reasonable. They also serve Malaysian, Indonesian, and Thai food.
7) Plaka – Best Greek
With generous portions and friendly staff, Plaka Restaurant in Mississauga describes themselves as a “low-key eatery”. They’re only open for breakfast until late lunch, and word on the street is that they do those meals well enough to not be open for dinner.
