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. It comes with a plate full of fries and they use real cheese curds—which was a real plus. The gravy os super flavourful and the classic poutine taste of fries, cheese and gravy worked magically in every bite.
Tucked away right at Queen and Chapel, Tracks offers a unique nightlife experience. The place is quite large so you have the option of enjoying the best of two worlds; you can go there for a quaint evening with just one other person or you can grab a few friends to enjoy the bar and the live band. On top of it all, Tracks brews their own beer, so they offer a chance to try something different. But if you’re there for the food (and you should definitely be there for the food) then we recommend trying their wings--which are absolutely massive--and perhaps even their deep fried pickles. The place also offers great calamari. Tracks tops the list as a place that will provide you with the complete pub experience: great food, friendly company and a low-maintenance night out.
As far as comfort food goes, Radica’s Hot and Spicy is definitely a hotspot. It’s a little hard to find since it’s tucked away right at Queen and Rutherford, but once you get in there, it’s hard not to fall in love with the place. The first thing that both the staff members working at the counter suggest is the doubles along with boneless goat roti. They're able to bring the food out in an impressively short amount of time. So as far as service goes, the staff at Radica’s did a great job but it is worth noting that their food spoke volumes for itself. Served hot and with the suitable amount of spice upon request, the food instantly warms you up on the inside, which is great.
Quick service, large portions, and possibly the best hot sauce on this list - Portas Do Mar took Martin’s BBQ’s place in a plaza on Main St., and while we miss Martin’s, Portas Do Mar is a pretty awesome spot itself. At this Portuguese bar and grill, you get a choice of white or dark meat, plus rice and potatoes, for a steeper price of $12 compared to other spots on this list, but the food is delicious. The hot sauce is tangy and has an incredible kick to it, so make sure you pour that stuff over everything, the potatoes have a thin outer layer that just melts when you pop them in our mouth, and the rice have a unique lemon flavour to them. As for the chicken, the skin is flavourful and and the meat is tender. The best part? Service here is very quick, especially for take-out. You could be in and out in well under 10 minutes.
If you want a great artisan sandwich (especially a loaded veal one with all the fixings), this is the place to go. Hidden in an industrial-ish area 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 when you visit: order early or have time to spare. This absolute gem of a restaurant appeared on The Food Network’s You Gotta Eat Here in 2013 and for good reason - every item on the menu looks and tastes authentically delicious. If you’re in the mood for a hearty veal sandwich with all the toppings, you truly shouldn’t look anywhere else. The veal is tender, the mushrooms are filling and flavourful and the hot peppers add a certain wow factor that makes the sandwich complete. Another awesome item on their menu is the authentic woodfired pizza! If you’re looking to grab lunch, this is the ideal spot.
