5) Symposion

If you're ever looking for an authentic Greek dining experience, head to Symposion. Greek music welcomed me as I stepped foot through the doors and the delicious smells from the kitchen wafted throughout the room. I ordered moussaka with a side of vegetables, rice and potatoes. If you've never had moussaka, it's a traditional Greek dish made of eggplant, potatoes and spiced beef. The portion was a decent size and all the flavours melded together beautifully. The potatoes on the top were so soft, I still can't stop thinking about them. The sides of potatoes, vegetables and rice were all equally tasty, however it was too much food for me to eat for one meal and I definitely had leftovers for the next day! Symposion is one of Brampton's hidden gems, but definitely one you should try if you're looking for a tasty Greek meal!

4) John’s Family Restaurant

If you want to hit this Fisherman’s Drive hotspot on a Saturday or Sunday, be prepared to wait a few minutes for a table. John’s Family Restaurant, a tasty establishment known for serving breakfast, brunch and Greek and Italian fare, is a casual restaurant run by friendly servers that’s augmented by a filling and delicious menu. While a lot of more casual restaurants tend to serve decidedly ordinary Benedicts, John’s offers a delicious smoked salmon Benny that’s heavy on both fish and flavour. The hollandaise is also subtle, memorable and delicious. As far as staples go, the eggs, bacon, sausages and pancakes are perfectly prepared and wonderfully filling. The breakfast potatoes are also exceptional, as they’re comprised of the real deal--no store-bought cubes here!

3) Harbourside Fish and Chips

Cute nautical decor and great service awaits at Harbourside, where it's all anchors and starfish. Tons of natural light fills the restaurant, which opened last year in a Sandalwood Pkwy. strip mall. As far as the menu goes, the resto offers a daily lunch special from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. that consists of haddock and chips for $7.95 plus tax. Older diners can also enjoy special treatment every Monday, as that’s Senior’s Day.In terms of fish options, diners can enjoy Alaskan halibut, haddock, cod and salmon. The resto also offers a plethora of deep-fried shrimp options (including coconut shrimp), along with battered mushrooms, fried clams, crab cakes and scallops. If you want to keep things light, you can order your fish baked or grilled. This place is also great for fish tacos.

2) Oscar's Roadhouse

If you're in the mood for rib, this country roadhouse fits the bill. The pork ribs here were awesome. The meat fell off the bone and the plate is piled high with four different side dishes, which included garden veggies, different variations of potatoes, baked beans and jalapeno corn bread! Be warned: the only way to eat them is with a knife and fork because the meat falls off that easily. The pork ribs on their own were juicy, tender and mighty tasty and were complimented by Oscar’s sweet and tangy housemade BBQ sauce. There’s also the option to get a rib and wing platter. But if you’re a rib aficionado, try to plan a trip to Oscar’s on a Saturday between 2-10 p.m. for their Rib Special, where you can get a full rack for $16.99 or a half for $11.99.

1) Sul Irmaos Smokehouse

Sul Irmaos (featured in cover photo) delivers on a chicken wing experience that feels a little different than others. Usually, when you grab a pound of wings while at a bar watching a game, it’s easy to eat and get distracted with everything around you, but not at Sul Irmaos. When eating wings at this spot, you’re going to find that you’re invested in nothing other than the perfectly produced wings in front of you. There is no doubt that these wings have just the right amount of meat on the bones; you don’t feel like you’re hunting for more and you also don’t feel defeated by an overabundance of meat. The actual taste of the wings and sauce was on point. The seasoning on their hot wings, otherwise known as their Pereira Juice, hit the spot; another great example of flavour not getting lost in the heat. If you want to be even more impressed, order up a pound of their hot honey BBQ wings, which I will go as far as saying is one of the best wing flavors I have ever tried. Sul Irmaos knows what they’re doing when it comes to meat, and they really know how to serve up some quality wings. You can find Sul Irmaos in Downtown Brampton at George street right between Wellington and Queen.
