5) J.Red & Co

Definitely one of the most modern restaurants in Brampton, from the atmosphere to the innovative menu. Located on Vodden and Main is one of the city’s gems. Chef Jason Rosso is the mastermind behind the menu and if his name sounds familiar to you, it's probably because he has appeared on such TVshows as Restaurant Makeover, Recipe to Riches and the Marilyn Dennis Show. He is known for offering familiar food with a twist and the menu does not disappoint. Here, you can experiment with all kinds of new food - you can try things like smoked cheddar mac 'n cheese, egg rolls, and even crispy fried cauliflower ‘wings.’ J.Red is also featured in our cover photo!

4Portas Do Mar Bar & Grill

We announced earlier this year that a brand new Portuguese restaurant had opened in Brampton. Portas Do Mar - or, "Doors to the Sea" - has settled into a location at Main and Vodden, where Martin's BBQChicken used to be. The location is now under new ownership. The restaurant boasts BBQ chicken, grilled meat, and seafood on their menu, with healthy sides of potatoes, veggies, and rice. Anyone craving flavourful grilled meat in hearty portions seems to be in for a treat, as the resto is easily accessible to visitors from its central location.

3) Ellen's Bar and Grill

Ellen's near Bovaird and Main serves "elevated pub fare" - their menu boasts poutine, pasta, burgers, and more! If you're looking for a classic go-to bar, Ellen's is for you. Their fries come with their haddock fish and chips at around $15, and they're worth your while. Dusted with cajun spices, Ellen's fries are the right amount of crispy, and you'll want to order a basket of them on their own to munch on during your booze-fest at this bar. They're a unique take on the "chips" in fish and chips, and definitely a must-try in Brampton. This isn't the fish and chips list, but I must say they also fry some mean haddock.

2) Carve on Lot 5

Located at 15 Main Street North, the resto boasts a great location and actually sits in a historical building (they had to renovate the space before opening). The restaurant boasts a main floor bar and lounge, a second floor meeting and dining room and the aforementioned rooftop patio (which features a bar). The food offerings are diverse (which is ideal in a city as multicultural as Brampton) and affordable and the resto also boasts a simple wine list, good quality spirits and a mix of local and international beers. We highlight recommend the fries, the fish tacos, the mac and cheese, and…well, pretty much anything on their menu!

1) Kwality Sweets & Restaurant

Kwality serves the best butter chicken I have ever had, hands down. As soon as I tried it, my life changed, and I knew it would top this list. You can taste the freshness of this butter chicken, the chicken is so tender it falls apart without needing a utensil's help, and the tomato sauce is creamy, slightly sweet, and spicy all at once. Though it was the most expensive meal on this list, at around $20 for naan and butter chicken, it was so worth the cash. Everything about this butter chicken was on point, even the naan was made just right - fluffy, crunchy, and buttery in all the right places - and all I could think about was when I could come back for another round. Best capped off with a masala chai - delicious!
