5) Antica Osteria

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.

4) Vesuvio's Ristorante

Vesuvio's has been around for the past 54 years! This well-known spot has been a classic in Brampton since 1963. Residents will definitely want to check out how it's changed since their location in downtown Brampton flooded in March 2016. Their most popular dishes are their manicotti, their gnocchi, and their wood-burning pizzas which start at about $16. They boast delectable pastas, gourmet pizzas, and delicious desserts. According to owner Maurizio Dacunto, "Everything is homemade, just like grandma makes.” Don’t forget about Maurizio’s Paninis opening up soon next to this Brampton gem.

3) Thai Pepper

Hands down, Thai Pepper has the best quality Thai food in Brampton. The quality, quantity, and cost are all worth your while. Located not too far from Sandalwood and Hurontario, Thai Pepper’s meagre decor in its unassuming plaza is completely contrary to the amazing cuisine found within. The menu offered several different choices, classics and unique specialties. Fortunately, the affordable prices makes it easy to not feel too bad about indulging in a few items. Some of our favourite items include the ever-classic shrimp tom yum soup, which boasts the perfect amount of spice and comes with huge, quality prawns, and the basil fried rice. Thai Pepper has a variety of items, too. Be warned, if you are in a rush, Thai Pepper may not be the best option for you. If you are looking to eat a delicious meal and spend time relaxing with a friend, you’ve come to the right place.

2) Henry’s

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.

1) Briskit

Drive slowly or you might miss it - Briskit is located near Dixie and Advance, in an industrial area on Wilkinson Road. Briskit boasts the best gourmet slow cooked sandwiches in Brampton, so be sure to carve out some time on your lunch hour to wait for your sandwich, and you won’t regret it. This mom and pop shop serves up a range of sandwiches, from their traditional beef brisket that’s marinated for 24 hours in a five-spice recipe and gets slow-cooked in a sweet and savoury sauce, to an epic chicken po’boy complete with fried chicken, fries, and bacon in a burger bun, to a three-cheese, cheese crunch sandwich that will leave you in the best kind of cheese coma, and more. Also noteworthy is definitely the poutine here, which you can also get topped with briskit, or with chicken curry or even taco chilli. If you’re looking for a fast food-style lunch that’s not so fast, and probably the most hidden food joint on this list, Briskit is your spot - delicious!
