5) Green Bites Dumplings & Tea Bar

If you love dumplings, tea, chicken wings, and Asian-inspired dishes, a brand new restaurant just opened in Brampton and you’ll want to check it out ASAP! Green Bites Dumpling & Tea Bar has officially opened its doors at 35 Resolution Drive, in the same plaza as Walmart at Rutherford and Steeles. Green Bites is serving up homemade everything, but its focus is - of course - on dumplings and tea. Here, you’ll find fresh dumplings in a ton of varieties with unique wrappers, meat and vegetarian options included. Tea is also a highlight on the menu. Green Bites features organic loose leaf tea such as dragon well, spring green, high mountain oolong, wuyishan black, iron Buddha and yunnan pu-er. According to the restaurant’s owners, California meets Toronto at Green Bites. The chicken wing recipe comes from the owners’ relatives in California, and it’s been around for 18 years. What else can you expect on the menu? Grilled chicken with black bean sauce, sesame sauce salad, orange chicken, tempura, seafood, noodles, rice, and more!


4) Paranthe Wali Gali

A 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).


3) Carve on Lot 5

Located at 15 Main Street North, this resto boasts a great location and actually sits in a historical building (they had to renovate the space before opening). The restaurant boasts a main floor bar and lounge, a second floor meeting and dining room and the aforementioned rooftop patio (which features a bar). The food offerings are diverse (which is ideal in a city as multicultural as Brampton) and affordable and the resto also boasts a simple wine list, good quality spirits and a mix of local and international beers. We highlight recommend the fries, the fish tacos, the mac and cheese, and...well, pretty much anything on their menu!


2) Firangi

This Queen and Airport resto opened not too long ago (which they proudly display on their storefront as "Est. 2016") operated by Sanjeev Sethi, the owner and executive chef of The Host brand. The cozy, street food inspired resto has a casual yet classy atmosphere, with unique furnishings and earthy tones like reds, greens, and browns throughout. Their dishes are served in metal bowls and plates (as if they were cooked in them - very street food-like), though their dinner plates are a simple and classy black. The Butter Chicken Fries can't be beat and I'll rave about them forever - aromatic, with tender chicken, creamy sauce with a kick of spice, and crispy fries. Also be sure to try their Chicken 65, classic saag paneer, and the chef's choice Ambala Wala Chicken Curry. At reasonable prices, you can get a tasty meal here for about $25 per person.


Located in the massive plaza at Kennedy and Sandalwood, Harbourside opened early in 2017 and has quickly worked its way into Bramptonians’ hearts…with good reason! First, Harbourside serves up everything from traditional fish and chips and breaded shrimp to poutines and a host of decadent deep-fried desserts. 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. The haddock and chips boasts a filling portion of melt-in-your-mouth fish, chips that hit the spot, and you can get ‘em from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. as a lunch special for $8.75. Over all, a scrumptious serving of fish and chips that will not disappoint!
