5) La Capannina
La Capannina is a family-run gem that’s been operating since the 80s and has more than stood the test of time. The downtown Brampton resto, tucked away on George Street North, offers charming, vintage appeal and a classic menu full of such delicious Italian mainstays as spaghetti bolognese, homemade gnocchi, manicotti and veal parmigiana. It also boasts a few unique offerings, such as oysters rockefeller, mushroom caps stuffed with lobster, shrimps, scallops and hollandaise sauce and a rotating list of decadent specials (the mixed meat and cheese board was a sweet surprise and came with a tender brie and flavourful capicola). The service is informative and attentive and the homemade gnocchi is fall-apart tender, not to mention generously portioned. The manicotti is also incredibly fresh, allowing the diner to taste each ingredient. There’s a reason this resto has lasted as long as it has and that reason is fresh, memorable food served by friendly, helpful staff in an inviting atmosphere.
Stacey Lee’s may be tiny, but it is a mighty greasy spoon! This cozy, understated nook at Queen and McLaughlin is one of the most legendary restaurants in Brampton. Stacey Lee’s thrives by serving up a hearty breakfast (be sure to ask for their shredded hash browns), and you’ll definitely leave full and happy. They boast delicious, cost-efficient all-day breakfast - pancakes for dinner might be fun for the kids - plus a senior’s menu for gram and gramps, and comfort food options for the parents like hot sandwiches, steak, and chicken pot pie. There’s a classic small-town diner vibe happening inside, and though there might be fruit in the menu item pictured below, it’s a must-try greasy spoon dish at Stacey Lee’s. The melt-in-your-mouth croissant hugs a moist egg and melty cheese that will put any Timmies or McD’s breakfast sandwich to shame. How many calories are in that, you ask? Who cares!
If you want to take your date to an Italian restaurant but you don't want to pay $25+ for a plate of pasta, Canelli's is a great option. Located near Queen and Kennedy, Canelli's is a casual Italian eatery with a unique vibe. The dining space is large with brick and wood accents, there's an assortment of booth and table seating, there's a glass case where you can see some of the delicious desserts you might enjoy after dinner. We highly recommend the pasta and the calamari fritti. Pictured below is the penne con pollo which rings in at $17 a plate, across from the spaghetti arrabiata which is just $14. And the calamari fritti is a reasonable $12, served with a house chipotle mayo and seafood sauce - yum! Like any good Italian restaurant Canelli's also has a solid list of vino if you want to kick your date up a notch, complete with about 20 different kinds of wine to choose from. You can even impress your date with some awesome chocolate raspberry tartufo at dessert for $4. This place is featured in our cover photo.
If you love Filipino cuisine, you’ll be excited to know that Brampton recently got a new Filipino restaurant! It’s called Fan "D" Flame, and it’s serving up some delicious food from its spot in the plaza at Main and Bovaird, in the same area at Rona and the passport office. What can you expect to eat at Fan "D" Flame? A ton of classic Filipino dishes, with some Chinese and Western fusion, for breakfast, lunch and dinner. From fried rice and noodles, to chicken wings and spring rolls, to halo-halo and lechon, you'll find it all at Fan "D" Flame. According to the owners, this new restaurant offers dine-in, takeout and even catering. Restaurant owners highlight that Fan "D" Flame roasts their pic in house, with an oven that can fit eight pigs for roasting. It's called Cebu's lechon, and if you eat pork, this is definitely something you'll want to try. And, this place serves bubble tea…and there’s a buffet.
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.
