There’s no such thing as too much breakfast in Brampton! Fluffy eggs, crunchy bacon, jam-smothered toast, and sweet, sweet pancakes - yum. A brand new all day breakfast spot and family restaurant just opened its doors in a very popular area of Brampton, near Bramalea City Centre (BCC). Golden Eggs Restaurant is located at 4 Lisa Street, unit 17 in Brampton, between CIBC and Dollar Joy Plus. That’s across the street from good old BCC. The new restaurant has taken over the old All Star Wings space, complete with an outdoor patio where it might be nice to enjoy breakfast this summer. And the restaurant serves more than all day breakfast - it serves all day lunch and dinner, too! Golden Eggs has all the staples you’d expect from a family restaurant, from burgers and fries to pancakes and coffee.
Presentation and cleanliness is key for a dine-in experience and August 8 hit all the right notes in those categories. Located on the lower floor of Bramalea City Centre, August 8 provides Japanese cuisine as well as Chinese. Brampton does not have a lot of spots for dim sum and August 8 was able to bring it to our city in a modern and approachable way. We say approachable because if you’ve never had dim sum, some of the dishes might seem a little out there, from chicken feet to seafood prepared in ways you may not necessarily be used to. August 8 allows you to enjoy these dishes in a much more modern setting so as to ease you into the idea of trying these foods. By choosing the all-you-can-eat option, the restaurant lets you place orders on iPads, which makes it easy to order at your own leisure. If you go for the dim sum, we highly recommend the cheese wonton as well as the fried eggplant with minced shrimp.
If you have a taste for fine dining and Indian food, you’re in luck, because a new Indian restaurant has officially opened its doors in Brampton. Anokhi Fine Dining has taken over the space where Mayura used to be near Hurontario and Ray Lawson, complete with an Anokhi Patisserie next door. As for Anokhi Fine Dining, you’ll find Indian restaurant staples on the menu such as chicken tikka, aloo tikki, and chaat. You’ll also find such items as coconut and cardamom soup, chicken and lamb kabobs, and even fish tacos topped with spicy eggplant salsa and cumin sour cream. Vegetarian items include paneer tacos, stuffed aloo tikki - an Indian-style potato patty stuffed with cottage cheese and green chillies, and even saag paneer and daal. The mains go on to feature such mouth-watering concoctions as classic butter chicken, fish curry, biryani, and lamb vindaloo. Profiteroles, gulab jamun, and freshly baked tarts are just a few of the dessert options. As for Anokhi Patisserie next door, French pastries meet Indian flavours, according to the restaurant’s website.

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.

Hakka No. 1 even has bubble tea - yum!
