Top 5 Fish and Chips in Brampton
I always feel guilty after eating fish and chips in Brampton, but equally satisfied with how scrumptious the meal is. Deep-fried fish and potatoes make one amazing combo. But depending on where you grab this fisherman's delight, it could be a hit or miss. Here's a list of the top 5 fish and chips places in Brampton that are sure to get you hooked.
5) Heritage Fish & Chips
This pub-style restaurant offers a cozy atmosphere with quick service and hearty meals. Heritage has three locations in Brampton. I chose to try the Fisherman Drive spot, as it seemed fitting. The menu is huge with a variety of fish and different dishes to try. There's also a take-out menu to browse if you feel like staying in. The waitress was very friendly and welcoming. I ordered the halibut, which was a little pricy at about $16, but the meal size was decent. The fish itself was delicious but overcooked, a little too crispy for my liking. The chips were good but more soft than crispy. Overall, the meal was satisfying and dining in was a pleasant experience.
This restaurant is in a busy area on Main Street North and knows how to please their customers. The restaurant is old-fashioned and small. I ordered the lunch special, which includes haddock, chips and pop for $8.49. The venue was a little messy, but has a small dining area if you want to eat in. The service was quick and the haddock was good. The batter was tasty and, in my opinion, the best part of the meal. The fries were a little bland but got the job done. If you're looking to please your fishy craving, then Mimi's won't disappoint.
Even though this restaurant is a pub that hosts poker tournaments, their fish and chips are worth a try. If you're not a fan of haddock, then Ellen's may not be right for you as that is their only fish option. The meal comes with two pieces of haddock and chips for about $14. The waitress was friendly and the service was quick. The fish was a little too greasy, but tender. The batter was not too thick and was definitely delicious. Ellen's chips are a little different than the other chips on this list, as they have some Cajun spices on them, making for a yummy change. Their tartar sauce is made in-house, but be warned—it's heavy on the mayonnaise and dill. Overall, if you're in the mood for beer and fish and chips, Ellen's is a good choice.
This hidden gem in Brampton doesn't disappoint with their delicious fish and chips. Located in a plaza on Avondale Boulevard, Guildford's has a Fisherman's Warf kind of vibe and has plenty of dine-in seating. The restaurant is unique because it also has Chinese cuisine on their menu, such as wonton soup. I took advantage of their lunch special, which includes haddock, chips and pop for about $8. The staff was friendly and told me how they've been deep-frying fish for about 50 years. The haddock was soft and the batter had a buttery taste that kept me wanting more. The fries were a little greasy, but overall the whole package is exactly how fish and chips should be served.
They're right when they say they have "the best fish and chips in town." Located in a plaza on Main Street North, the restaurant has a lot to offer. Not only do they serve five different types of fish but also salads and appetizers. The staff wasn't very talkative but knew how to make good fish and chips. I got the small halibut and chips meal for about $10. The fish was fresh, soft and the batter melted in my mouth. The fries were good but a little soft, so they might disappoint if you prefer a crispy texture. The dining area was huge and clean. If you're planning on eating in or taking out, Henry's is a great choice to satisfy your fish and chips craving.
