Like romance novels, dumplings fit tempting tidbits into a small but steamy package. Passionately devour cuisine with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of fare and drinks from Axia in Mississauga.
At Axia Restaurant & Bar, winner of the Mississauga News Readers' Choice Award for fusion food, chefs create Chinese, Korean, Japanese and Southeast Asian culinary traditions in four separate kitchens. Patrons snack on Japanese specialties such as the chef-selected raw cuts on the sashimi combination platter ($15.95) or set their chopsticks on Chinese staples such as the classic stir-fried shanghai noodles with pork and shrimp ($11.99) and olive-and-mushroom fried rice ($10.99).
Curry and Malaysian spices mingle with Southeast Asian selections, including thai tiger shrimp red curry ($14.49) and thai mango salad, in which fresh-sliced mango weaves itself amid zucchini, bell peppers, onions, and ground cashews ($7.99). Paper lanterns and rustic decor maintain an outdoor-inspired ambience, and decadent desserts and specialty drinks, including fruit smoothies and bubble teas, provide meals with a more satisfying denouement than Marco Polo's childhood memoirs.
