5) Paranthe Wali Gali

A new, unique Indian restaurant boasting traditional flavours and a specialty opened recently in Brampton, and readers are a-buzz. It’s called Paranthe Wali Gali - which means “the lane of parantha-makers” - and it’s located at Clarence and Kennedy. A parantha is an Indian flatbread that’s popular in different styles in South Asian countries. The flatbread is typically flaky and can be stuffed with different ingredients. Paranthe Wali Gali serves a whopping almost 60 different kinds of paranthe (plural of parantha), including butter chicken, beet root, and chicken biryani. Some of the paranthe are inspired by different South Asian regions, like Chennai (parantha with potatoes and southern-flavoured herbs) and Kashmir (parantha with kidney beans and Indian herbs).

4) Antica Osteria

If you're looking to enjoy a romantic date or a sophisticated dinner, Antica is more than worth a try. This Mayfield Road restaurant pairs warmth and sophistication, wowing guests with a classic wine bar and comforting earthy tones. While a great deal of attention has been paid to the setting, the restaurant is better known for serving fine Italian fare. The resto’s website calls attention to the fact that the establishment occupies “one of the most prestigious indoor spaces in Snelgrove” and the enriching ambiance is apparent as soon as you walk in the door. This restaurant is ideal for a special occasion and the menu doesn’t disappoint, offering such classics as Gnocchi con Pera e Gorgonzola, Penne alla Vodka, lamb and more. If you want to be wowed, try the homemade gnocchi or any of the tender, succulent veal dishes available on the menu.

3) Hakka No. 1

This Melanie Drive spot is an epic choice for all of the industrial workers in the area, and once you know about it, it might become your go-to spot for lunch specials and hakka food. From noodles to rice to meat and beyond, you'll find a huge variety of food on the menu, including all kinds of chicken (manchurian chicken is pictured below!), noodles (Shanghai, Singapore, and ho-fun included!), beef, fish, veggies, and delicious sauces you can think of. The serving sizes are huge and the restaurant is surprisingly cozy, with ample seating space. Whether you're snagging some take-out, you're there for a $7.25 lunch special (which comes with water and a mouthwatering spring roll), or you're there with a few people prepared to order everything on the menu, you won't regret your decision to go here. Hakka No. 1 even has bubble tea - yum!

2) Lynn's Buccoo Reef 

Okay, we need to talk about Lynn's! First of all, drop everything you're doing and decide when you're going to make your way over to this Orenda Road spot serving up authentic Trini cuisine that tastes like your mom made it. Except she didn't make it - Lynn did, and Lynn happens to be one of the friendliest restaurant owners you'll meet in Brampton, cooking all of the food from scratch, and she's almost always at the restaurant. The food here is ridiculously fresh and flavourful. Here, you'll find classic dishes like surf and turf, curry boneless chicken, roti, chow mein, and even jerk chicken. Let me tell you - the jerk chicken falls off the bone, and you can tell that it has soaked up a lot of flavour and a kick of spice. The coleslaw is the best I've ever had. It's sweet, juicy, and cool. And the rice and beans really complete the dish. To top it off, everything is portioned well, and you might have some leftover for your next meal or snack. And the curry chicken? You could practically drink the sauce it comes steeped in. Enough of me telling you all of this, though, make the trek and find Lynn's in the industrial area at Orenda Road and West Drive.

1) Fan “D” Flame

If you love Filipino cuisine, you’ll be excited to know that Brampton just got a new Filipino restaurant! It’s called Fan "D" Flame, and it’s serving up some delicious food from its spot in the plaza at Main and Bovaird, in the same area at Rona and the passport office. What can you expect to eat at Fan "D" Flame? A ton of classic Filipino dishes, with some Chinese and Western fusion, for breakfast, lunch and dinner. From fried rice and noodles, to chicken wings and spring rolls, to halo-halo and lechon, you'll find it all at Fan "D" Flame. According to the owners, this new restaurant offers dine-in, takeout and even catering. Restaurant owners highlight that Fan "D" Flame roasts their pic in house, with an oven that can fit eight pigs for roasting. It's called Cebu's lechon, and if you eat pork, this is definitely something you'll want to try. And, this place serves bubble tea! …and there’s a buffet.
