5. Churrasqueira Nova Esperanca 

At Williams and Main, this Portuguese family-owned churrasqueira has some incredible BBQ chicken. Though lineups often extend in the small space from counter to door during their dinner rush, you'll still manage to get in and out in about 10 minutes. Get there just before the rush for an even quicker experience. Pick your faves from their takeout counter - all of the fresh food is displayed in fromt of you. Go here if you want your BBQchicken done right, if you're a piri piri sauce connoisseur, and most of all, if you want a fresh, flavourful bite and you're on a time crunch. 

4. Golden Palace 

When you walk in, it’s hard not to notice the beautiful aesthetic of Golden Palace. Located at Torbram and North Park, the place screams dine-in restaurant; grabbing takeout just wouldn’t cut it. Once you do sit down, the service is just as pleasant. My server was on the ball with all of the questions we had in terms of what was authentic chinese food and what was westernized. The server was also easy to talk to, which is always a plus at restaurants. A friendly face and inviting attitude is the difference between having a second visit or not. He directed me to check out the Kung Pao Chicken and I’m glad he did, since it felt a lot less heavy than many of the other places I went to. Not only was it lighter but the meal tasted great. The portion was quite large but accompanied with a little bit of their green tea at the end, you’ll feel ready to eat the rest of your leftovers by the time you get home! 

3. India's Taste 

This gem sits in a plaza at the corner of Mavis and Ray Lawson, and during peak hours, it's packed. If you're going for their buffet on a weekend night, you'll want to arrive early, as spots disappear quickly. As for their butter chicken, India's Taste serves up a standard, classic version of the dish. The ratio of sweet to spicy is decent but leaning more towards spicy, and there are good sized chunks of chicken throughout. What's extra awesome about India's Taste is that their butter chicken is reasonably priced for their quantity and quality - you can get one naan and one serving of butter chicken for about $11. 

2. Gusto Pizzaria 

Gusto sits at the corner of Main and Church in downtown Brampton, and they’ll show you how to make a calzone. No, really, they roll and toss the dough where you can see it, so you can watch your beautiful calzone begin to come to life. Their dough is homemade, they have a decent cheese-to-sauce ratio, and they boast fresh sauce and fresh veggies. Gusto also has a wide variety of meat toppings like regular or beef salami, mild or hot Italian sausage, prosciutto, and ground beef, which is great for meat lovers. It’s about a 20 minute wait for one of their ‘zones which cost $7.90 each plus 75 cents per topping. Gusto’s calzones are best eaten right out of the oven while they’re hot and the cheese is still gooey. 

1.  Nova Grill & Bakery 

This Portuguese bakery in downtown Brampton near Main and Church does a lot of things right - they make great pie, they have lots of bread and meat, and they make a mean soup! Nova Grill changes up their soup of the day daily, and for about $3, you can get a steaming bowl of their daily concoction, best enjoyed with a giant bun from their bakery, and a custard tart for dessert. Below is a vegetable soup from Nova, which was a smooth potato puree with chopped spinach and carrots, plus the right amount of flavours and spices to be considered, as they say, “yummy in my tummy.” Nova is open bright and early at 8 a.m. so you can get soup at almost any time of day, and you can get it for there or to-go. What’s more, the service is friendly and you’ll always feel at home in the resto’s cozy setting.
