5) Food Fight Barbecue Bar

From pork spare ribs and beef brisket, to homemade sausages and fried chicken, to spicy mac and cheese and poutine, the brand new casual resto has some indulgent menu items all set for customers. They boast dine-in, take-out, and delivery, so if you want to try their food, you don’t even need to leave your house. “We smoke our meat all night over whole chunks of naturally procured wood,” says the resto. All of their meat and produce is sourced from Ontario, so you can be glad to know you’re eating local, and everything is indulgent and set for a cheat meal at this Maritime Ontario Blvd. hotspot for meat and more. With a chill vibe, kind and helpful staff, and delicious food, Food Fight has won our foodie hearts.

4) Annalakshmi

Fresh. Spicy. Vegetarian. Backyard dosa parties. These all very descriptive of this Brampton favourite, Annalakshmi at Main and Bovaird! Hidden in a plaza with Bluenotes and Suzy Shier outlets, we can’t blame you if you didn’t even know that this spot existed. But we would blame you if you didn’t go out of your way to try it! Annalakshmi is an absolute gem in Brampton that serves up fresh, spicy, authentic South Indian cuisine. Dosas are their specialty here - below is a spinach dosa with aloo masala (a spicy potato mixture), served with fresh chutney, and I devoured it, it was mouth-watering. But dosas aren’t the only things you’ll find on the menu. Annalakshmi is also great for their utthapam (you can even get seven mini ones and try all of the flavours), four kinds of idly, corn soup, four kinds of rice including classic lemon rice and tamarind rice, and tiffins (typically include Indian bread and some sort of curry). Meals at Annalakshmi are so comforting and delicious that they taste homemade, and yes, they do host backyard dosa parties where you can watch them make your dosas before you eat them.

3) Nova Grill and Bakery

Sweets, hot meals, alcohol, lots of space, TVs, Nova Grill and Bakery has it all. You've probably seen Nova Grill and Bakery locations around the GTA, but this is one of the few that offers cooked meals. The quarter chicken meal is tied for the cheapest meal on the list, advertised at $6.99 in store. A huge perk is the variety of sides to choose from. Stick with your roasted potatoes and rice, or grab some steamed vegetables, rapini, small baked potatoes (with the skin) instead. And believe me, the list does go on. The chicken is done well and doesn't venture far from traditional Portuguese tradition with juicy meat and a crispy-ish skin with mild or hot piri piri sauce on the side or slathered on. Come to the restaurant/bakery for a get together with family or friends and I can almost guarantee you will not be disappointed. Even if you don't get the chicken.

2) Hakka No. 1

This Melanie Drive spot is an epic choice for all of the industrial workers in the area, and once you know about it, it might become your go-to spot for lunch specials and hakka food. 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. Whether you're snagging some take-out, you're there for a $7.25 lunch special (which comes with water and a mouthwatering spring roll), or you're there with a few people prepared to order everything on the menu, you won't regret your decision to go here. Hakka No. 1 even has bubble tea - yum!

1) Paranthe Wali Gali

A new, unique Indian restaurant boasting traditional flavours and a specialty opened recently in Brampton, and Bramptonians 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).
