Toronto has been receiving a lot of attention for its thriving food scene lately. From new fine dining restaurants to novelty dessert bars, it’s no wonder the city is praised for its food. While all of these popular spots certainly deserve their 15 minutes of fame, you can get the same top quality chef-inspired dishes just outside the busy downtown core.
Mississauga restaurants have long been hidden by the shadow of the big city, making for a growing list of spots that are well worth the trip. Whether you are living in the GTA or are just looking for a break from downtown, Mississauga restaurants serve up some incredible dishes if you’re willing to look around. Gabriel’s Restaurant is a hidden gem located at the intersection of Mississauga Rd. & Turner Valley road, serving up delicious fine dining in an upscale casual atmosphere. Expect fine dining, comfortable elegance, and even more diversity on our menus. We’ve made it easy, here are our top five dishes you need to eat in Mississauga:
The menu offers a wide selection of incredible Italian-inspired dishes, but one of our absolute favourites is the Gnocchi. Potato and ricotta filled Gnocchi are tossed in a parmesan sauce, then topped with prosciutto for a flavorful garnish. The best part? It’s only $10. A great appetizer that’s worth every bite!
For those looking for a lighter dish to leave room for the mains (and dessert), you can’t go wrong with one of Gabriel’s house-made salads. The menu boasts an impressive selection of seven enticing salads, each carefully prepared with hand-picked ingredients. However, if you decide to stop by, no visit is complete without a taste of their classic Caprese Salad. The dish consists of fresh tomato, creamy bocconcini, and a 15-year aged balsamic vinaigrette.
Wrapped Sea Scallops
Any seafood lover knows how delicious Italian seafood dishes can be, and this dish is no exception. The wrapped sea scallops on Gabriel’s appetizer menu, a fan favourite and a contender for one of our most delicious starters. You can get a taste of four large sea scallops, baked to perfection and coated in a grainy dijon cream sauce.
Provimi Veal Scallopini
Veal is another Italian speciality whose flavour simply cannot be replicated by other cuisines. The executive chefs at Gabriel’s Restaurant are experts at sourcing and cooking a variety of veal dishes, each served with a generous helping of vegetables and potatoes. Their classic Veal Marsala is a must, but every one of their veal dishes showcases some of the best Italian food in Mississauga.
House Cut Steak – USDA Certified Angus Reserve Striploin
This list would not be complete without the signature dish. While the appetizers and pasta are delectable, there’s really nothing like The House Cut Steak. The House Cut is a USDA Certified Angus Reserve Beef Steak that absolutely melts in your mouth. The House Cut is available in 10 oz., 12 oz., and 14 oz. sizes all served with assorted vegetables and garlic mashed potato.
