Top 5 hottest restaurants in Brampton: March 29 - April 4
While most people are listening to experts and voluntarily self-isolating in the midst of the COVID-19 outbreak, many are sad to be missing out on concerts, plays, movies, events and restaurants.
You might not be able to linger at a table right now, but dozens of Brampton restaurants are open and offering takeout and delivery services exclusively—so you can explore the city and its many cultures from the comfort of your own home.
Here are five local restaurants that you can find on delivery apps such as UberEats, Skip the Dishes and DoorDash. You can also call the restaurants directly to place an order or find out exactly which app to use to make an order.
The Food Quotient is truly a hidden gem in Brampton! They offer a variety of appetizing dishes that are entirely vegan. You can place an order on their website and they will have it ready for pick up or delivery in just 30 minutes. You can also preorder for a later time. This delivery restaurant will not disappoint! I tried their vegan poutine which was absolutely delicious. As a huge poutine fan, I was amazed by how flavourful this was. I also tried their ultimate power-packed protein bowl - organic, non-GMO curried quinoa with sprouted mung beans and black chickpeas, topped with smoked portobello mushrooms, avocado, skillet-roasted broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, celery, asparagus, brussels sprouts, beetroot, braised kale and marinated purple cabbage. It’s exquisite and quite the pretty bowl! It’s also soy-free and nut-free.
The Crown and Lion at Financial and Steeles is what I like to call my favourite pub in all of Brampton. The cozy, familiar vibe, dart boards, friendly staff, and epic menu (I've tried most of their menu now and everything tastes great so far) have made it my go-to for a casual drink or for a bite to eat. I'll admit, their veggie burger had me confused...as soon as this was brought out, I wondered if my order was taken wrong! It looks like a beef burger and is flavoured like a beef burger - but it's not! This succulent, thick, flavourful patty is soy-based with a mix of onions and spices, and the texture and flavour will have you craving another one. It's well-seasoned with a kick of spice, and Crown has somehow managed to make it juicy. You can get this burger with or without cheese on top, and with sides like fries or a salad. Great if you're looking for a casual, sit-down spot to grab a burger and a few pints!
Maguire’s at Queen and Hansen is attached to an industrial-looking building, and if you’ve never been, I would recommend it. They have a cozy patio and an interior that just screams PUB! Perogies are a staple on their pub grub menu, best served with a cold brew and a game. Maguire’s perogies are stuffed with potatoes and loaded with cheese, onions, and bacon on top, served with a healthy side of sour cream. Their perogies were filling and cooked well, with a slight crunch. Maguire’s perogies come to $10.16 with tax, a good price for a sit-down perogy-fest.
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.
On Peter Robertson and Torbram, Sweet Palace has a very tasteful butter chicken dish, delivering on their promise to bring a bazaar or street food vibe to Brampton. There are sizeable chunks of tender chicken in their large serving, but what's the best about Sweet Palace's butter chicken is the sauce. The ratio of sweet to spicy is ridiculously on point - it's sweet and creamy with the perfect kick of spice. If you're looking for a sweeter butter chicken, Sweet Palace is your spot. Butter chicken from Sweet Palace is about $13.
