A unique Indian restaurant boasting traditional flavours and a specialty opened recently in Brampton, and readers are a-buzz. It’s called Paranthe Wali Gali - which means “the lane of parantha-makers” - and it’s located at Clarence and Kennedy, with another location near Queen and Airport. A parantha is an Indian flatbread that’s popular in different styles in South Asian countries. The flatbread is typically flaky and can be stuffed with different ingredients. Paranthe Wali Gali serves a whopping almost 60 different kinds of paranthe (plural of parantha), including butter chicken, beet root, and chicken biryani. Some of the paranthe are inspired by different South Asian regions, like Chennai (parantha with potatoes and southern-flavoured herbs) and Kashmir (parantha with kidney beans and Indian herbs).
Now we get into the higher levels of smoked meat. You can smoke any type of meat, and when you do, something beautiful usually happens. The team at Food Fight Barbeque Bar understand this concept beautifully! Smoked chicken, smoked turkey, and the classics like pulled pork and beef brisket, help make this restaurant a smoked meat lover’s delight! While their meat could probably hold its own in terms of taste, they add some extras to keep the flavour buds entertained. If you’re an adventurous soul like me, or you just aren’t sure which one to get, try their sliders to get a good taste of their options. The beef brisket here is succulent and tasty, I highly recommend it!
If you’re ready for a vegetarian feast, Brar’s is the place to go. Offering both buffet and sit-down style dining, Brar’s has a vast variety of Indian dishes and it’s all completely vegetarian. Most of the dishes include paneer cheese as their star ingredient, but they also make great use of vegetables and potatoes as the dominant force in their cooking. Beyond solely Indian food, Brar’s puts forth some great Hakka style food as well. They make a mean vegetarian manchurian, and paired up with their noodles you’ll be more than impressed. Found at Dixie and Advance, this vegetarian spot will leave you positively thinking that vegetarians do it right.
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.
Tucked into a plaza at Queen and McLaughlin, Traditional Taste is a classic bakery and cafe in Brampton that you have to visit, if not for their incredible custard tarts, then for their croissants! The classic butter croissant at Traditonal Taste is big, fluffy, and sweet. That's right, the dough has a pleasant sweetness to it that goes well with a cup of black coffee (if you roll that way). You can also make your croissant into a breakfast croissant with some deli meat and cheese here, and enjoy it in the small cafe area with plenty of light shining through the windows. A great croissant to start the day with.
