5) 168 Sushi
This popular AYCE sushi joint is hidden in a plaza near Kennedy and Glidden that's well worth your time! If you have an appetite for sushi, 168 has a variety of classic sushi options that you absolutely can't go wrong with. They have a few different styles of tables which is fun -- you can take your shoes off and sit on the floor or you can sit at a regular table. This place is great for a large group or even a solo sushi adventure...if you’re prepared to eat ALL the sushi that is!
The Crown and Lion feels like one of those places you can see yourself coming back to any night of the week. The Crown and Lion has been a favorite for many Bramptonians because of the friendly and inviting atmosphere. Nearing Brampton's border at Financial and Steeles, this pub doesn't fall in line with the usual dark toned aesthetic that most pubs seem to have. With the Crown and Lion, right when you walk in you'll quickly notice how well-lit the entire joint is and the bright colour scheme will also grab your attention. They have a lot of great theme nights, including Monday nights for wings and Wednesday nights for pub trivia. My personal favourite and main recommendation is their wings, but if you're looking to grab something to share with friends, I also suggest trying their spinach and artichoke dip or the wings. Either way, you'll leave knowing you had great food in a great place.
3) 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!
If you love dumplings, tea, chicken wings, and Asian-inspired dishes, a brand new restaurant just opened in Brampton and you'll want to check it out ASAP! Green Bites Dumpling & Tea Bar has officially opened its doors at 35 Resolution Drive, in the same plaza as Walmart at Rutherford and Steeles. Green Bites is serving up homemade everything, but its focus is - of course - on dumplings and tea. Here, you'll find fresh dumplings in a ton of varieties with unique wrappers, meat and vegetarian options included. Tea is also a highlight on the menu. Green Bites features organic loose leaf tea such as dragon well, spring green, high mountain oolong, wuyishan black, iron Buddha and yunnan pu-er. According to the restaurant's owners, California meets Toronto at Green Bites. The chicken wing recipe comes from the owners' relatives in California, and it's been around for 18 years. What else can you expect on the menu? Grilled chicken with black bean sauce, sesame sauce salad, orange chicken, tempura, seafood, noodles, rice, and more!
This Queen and Airport resto opened not too long ago (which they proudly display on their storefront as “Est. 2016”) operated by Sanjeev Sethi, the owner and executive chef of The Host brand. The cozy, street food inspired resto has a casual yet classy atmosphere, with unique furnishings and earthy tones like reds, greens, and browns throughout. Their dishes are served in metal bowls and plates (as if they were cooked in them - very street food-like), though their dinner plates are a simple and classy black. The Butter Chicken Fries can’t be beat and I’ll rave about them forever - aromatic, with tender chicken, creamy sauce with a kick of spice, and crispy fries. Also be sure to try their Chicken 65, classic saag paneer, and the chef’s choice Ambala Wala Chicken Curry. At reasonable prices, you can get a tasty meal here for about $25 per person.
