What we're about

Note that at present, we are capping our membership at 50 members maximum so already at full capacity. We won't be approving anymore requests to join us but will re-evaluate our membership every few months to see if we can open up spots.

Adventurous Dining, a Meetup group with a difference. We focus on dining events like lunches and dinners plus sometimes even breakfasts. However, unlike other groups that run dining events, we prefer interesting, ethnic cuisine experiences to explore GTA's multicultural diversity.

We won't be dining at mainstream restaurants like Jack Astor's, Moxies, Red Lobster or Montana's. Nor do we frequent many expensive fine dining establishments since we like dining value as well which can often be found at many ethnic type of restaurants. So if you are not an adventurous eater, our Meetup group is not for you.

We visit many Asian (Chinese, Thai, Hakka, Korean, Vietnamese) places including regular stops at Chinese dim sum houses, middle Eastern (Lebanese, Turkish, Syrian), Indian, European, Latin American, African and other non-mainstream kitchens. We'll also visit interesting out of town establishments from time to time as well. Sometimes we'll even tie in special optional activities like hikes, festivals and educational seminars to our food events.

Keep in mind that most but not all of our events are around the Mississauga, Brampton, Oakville areas. We do venture into Toronto and other locations further north and west sometimes but our group is mainly for those who can realistically make it to the mainly Mississauga and surrounding areas on a fairly regular basis.


Most of our dining events have maximum limits in number of seats available in order to enhance the social experience. We do not believe in cramming as many people as possible at our events. Instead, we prefer settings where everyone can easily interact with everyone else at our events.

There will NEVER be a mandatory Meetup group membership fee nor per event fees other than for the food of course! We won't nickel and dime members to make money out of them.

Of extreme importance to us is to maintain a comfortable and safe social environment at our events for our members, especially the women. If we come across individuals who behave in a way that is not in the spirit of our group, we will not hesitate to remove them from our group.

So if you would like to join a friendly group of people interested in exploring all sorts of different ethnic cuisines, then Adventurous Dining is for you.
