5) 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 gems in the city. 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 Denis Show. He is known for offering familiar food with a twist and the menu does not disappoint. What's better than going out on a date and experimenting with a new style of food you have never tried before? You can try things like smoked cheddar mac 'n cheese, egg rolls and crispy fried cauliflower ‘wings.’ Our favourite is the Bob and Doug burger. This place is featured in our cover photo.


4) AJ's Restaurant:

So this is the best Florentine Eggs Benedict I've had in my life. Period. Just writing about it brings on a craving. Complementing certain tastes and flavours is an art form; it's very rarely something that is left to chance. The blend of hollandaise sauce, egg whites, yolk, spinach, mushroom, and English Muffin all complement each other to such a perfect degree that it tastes like one solid flavour within the same profile. Confusing? Think of a colour spectrum where you can see blue change to green as you move your eyes through the spectrum. Now think of this dish as being able to let you taste the entire spectrum all in one bite without skipping a single transition - powerful stuff! As if this wasn't enough, they went ahead and seasoned their potatoes beautifully to add a little spice to your meal. Crunchy, savoury, and a little bit salty. Brampton, this is one of your best Eggs Benedict by far!


3) That Italian Place Cafe & Eatery

Located just around the corner from Williams Parkway and Torbram, That Italian Place is a very busy spot with an authentic Italian feel. A word of caution to you when you visit: order early or have time to spare. I made the mistake of just popping in at lunch, hoping to quickly get a taste of a stone oven pizza. Unfortunately for me, there was no chance of a fast getaway; the restaurant was completely packed, and for good reason: every item I could feast my eyes on looked absolutely delightful and tempting. Despite a line that spanned the length of the store, the efficient staff made sure that customers' orders were placed promptly, and within five minutes of my arrival I had my cappuccino and cannoli to go. The coffee was traditional, well made and thoroughly enjoyed, especially with the cannoli. It warmed my heart on a bitter day; next time, I'll make sure I get a taste of the pizza too.


2) Henry’s Fish & Chips

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.

 


1) Shawarma Queen

This is the spot in Brampton when it comes to shawarma. I will happily put this joint up against any place in the GTA when it comes to Arab grub. Straight flexin' like Nate Diaz at a UFC weigh in, I bring my co-workers, family, friends and lovers here for food on the regular and it never disappoints. The staff here are absolutely the nicest people you will meet in the shawarma game. Support your local, independent business, especially when they are this good!
