5) Brars Grand Buffet

Here's another pleasant and wide variety of flavourful food for the vegetarian in you (no meat here). Brars is unique because it also has a bakery. So as soon as you step inside the restaurant there is nothing but food. The sweets look amazing and it kind of makes you want to skip the main course altogether. But don't do that. Brars has a wonderful variety of Indian food that's healthy and that's also comforting. You can't turn away when you see a grand, circular hot plate with curried chickpeas surrounded by samosas. And there is everything you could want when you're craving Indian food, whether you grew up on it or are new to it. If you have room for dessert the sweets are also almost exclusively cultural except for the ice cream. This is a great place to experiment eating Indian food. However, don't be afraid to ask what is available because the food descriptions on the glass are a little difficult to read. Featured in our cover photo this week.

4) Anjappar Chettinad

At Hurontario Street and Steeles Avenue, Anjappar Chettinad is a great South Indian spot with a buffet, a regular a-la-carte menu including dosas. This place has a fantastic buffet on the weekends that is rather busy in the AM / early lunch hour. They’ve even got all your dosa classics like masala dosa, vada and amazing house-made chutney. The buffet ranges from a reasonable $10.99 for weekend mornings to $12.99 for a weekday lunch and $14.99 in the evening. Their dosas come with two chutneys, tomato and coconut, and a good serving size of sambhar, perfect in proportion with the size of the dosa. All of their chutneys and their sambhar were packed with flavour. They might have a variety of South Indian food, but their dosas are a highlight on their menu.

3) J.Red & Co

Definitely one of the most modern restaurants in Brampton, from the atmosphere to the innovative menu. Located on Vodden and Main is one of the city’s gems. Chef Jason Rosso is the mastermind behind the menu and if his name sounds familiar to you, it's probably because he has appeared on such TVshows as Restaurant Makeover, Recipe to Riches and the Marilyn Dennis Show. He is known for offering familiar food with a twist and the menu does not disappoint. Here, you can experiment with all kinds of new food - you can try things like smoked cheddar mac 'n cheese, egg rolls, and even crispy fried cauliflower ‘wings.’

2) India’s Taste

Located on the heavily fortified border between Brampton and Mississauga, this spot sits right at the corner of Ray Lawson and Mavis (Chinguacousy) and has been a mainstay in this community for about 20 years. The amount of people coming in and out of this place is a testament to its street cred in Brampton. The buffet in the evening on a weekday will set you back about $17.99 and a lunch buffet $13.99. The food is fresh, and there is a heavy selection of both veg and not-veg to sink your teeth into. Peep your head over the salad bar to see the crew cooking up fresh naan straight out the tandoor. This spot is one of my favs because they have a private lounge in the back for rent where my crew and I can retire with our plates of shahi paneer and drinks and chill. Pick up some homemade Kulfi (ice cream pops made of almond and cardamom) on the way out as you pay your bill.

1) Henry’s

Although you might not think "poutine" when you hit a fish and chips place, these joints often offer fantastic fry-cheese-gravy concoctions. This classic fish and chips spot is one of the best in the city, and it also serves up a great poutine! Henry’s Fish and Chips, located in a plaza by Main and Vodden, has a poutine that doesn't disappoint. As you can tell by the picture, it comes with a plate full of fries and they use real cheese curds--which was a real plus. The gravy was super flavourful and the classic poutine taste of fries, cheese and gravy worked magically in every bite.
