If you're ready for a vegetarian feast, Brar's is the place to go. Offering both buffet and sit-down style dining, Brar's has a vast variety of Indian dishes and it's all completely vegetarian. Most of the dishes include paneer cheese as their star ingredient, but they also make great use of vegetables and potatoes as the dominant force in their cooking. Beyond solely Indian food, Brar's puts forth some great Hakka style food as well. They make a mean vegetarian manchurian, and paired up with their noodles you'll be more than impressed. Found at Dixie and Advance, this vegetarian spot will leave you positively thinking that vegetarians do it right.
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.
Kwality is one of Brampton’s busiest Indian restaurants at all times and on all days of the week - and for good reason! Kwality at Steeles and Torbram has some truly scumptious Indian food. You can get a solid meal here for well under $30 - it’s on the middle end of the Indian dining spectrum, still quite casual. Two major pointers when you go to Kwality: first, make sure you try their samosas. It’s a little steep compared to other restos with samosas in Brampton, at $2.25 for three, but they boast the right amount of spice and flavour. Samosa game strong! Then, there’s the garlic naan. This might be the best naan in all of Brampton - perfectly fluffy and doughy, and doused in butter and garlic to make the perfect compliment to your curry. As for curries, their butter chicken is the bomb, sweet, spicy, and creamy all at once. You might be overwhelmed with the decor and the amount of people when you walk in, but Kwality definitely has its own charm - and good quality food (see what I did there?). Don’t forget to pick up some sweets before you go, and wash your meal down with some piping hot and aromatic masala chai.
Tucked into a corner of a plaza at Mayfield and Hurontario, you won’t find Antica Osteria easily. But that makes the trip to this swanky restaurant even more rewarding when you find it. Antica serves both grilled and fried calamari, but their fried calamari dish is one of their most popular apps, and for good reason. Their squid rings are lightly breaded and the ideal texture for calamari, and they’re served with a homemade tzatziki sauce with extra lime. The portion size is perfect and there’s enough delicious calamari to share. Warning: you may become a calamari snob after you’ve tried it from Antica.
This spot, while not AYCE, provides amazing sushi at a reasonable price. The food is fantastic, I place it up there with any sushi joint in Peel Region. Tracing its roots to humble beginnings in the infamous Shopper's World, this spot sits up top in the same plaza as the crowned king (Queen) of Shawarma at Hurontario and Bovaird. Do yourself a favor and try this place out. Quality over quantity sometimes!
