5) The Khana Sutra

If you thought the name of this place was quirky, wait until you step inside! The Khana Sutra is a spacious Queen Street East restaurant that boasts an expansive, delicious menu, with both traditional items and traditional items with a Western spin, playful decor and relaxing live music that augments a pleasant meal, and it can be reminiscent of an Indian banquet hall party, which gives it all a fun vibe. The service is friendly and attentive and the food is a cut above typical Indian fare. If you're looking to share a meal, try the lime prawn pakoras and the Bharwaan Tandoori mushroom caps. If you want to be wow'd, order the Shehnai Ghosht entree (lamb roasted with cardamom and a herb-flavoured sauce) with some moist garlic naan. You won't be disappointed—especially if you top the meal off with some tasty Canadian wine.

4) Portas Do Mar

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.

3) Anjappar Chettinad

At Hurontario Street and Steeles Avenue, Anjappar Chettinad is a great South Indian spot with a buffet, a regular a-la-carte menu including dosas. This place has a fantastic buffet on the weekends that is rather busy in the AM / early lunch hour. They've even got all your dosa classics like masala dosa, vada and amazing house-made chutney. The buffet ranges from a reasonable $10.99 for weekend mornings to $12.99 for a weekday lunch and $14.99 in the evening. Their dosas come with two chutneys, tomato and coconut, and a good serving size of sambhar, perfect in proportion with the size of the dosa. All of their chutneys and their sambhar were packed with flavour. They might have a variety of South Indian food, but their dosas are a highlight on their menu.

2) That Italian Place

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.

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!

A note that Briskit is closed on weekends, and open weekdays from 8 a.m.-4 p.m.
