5) La Capannina
La Capannina is a family-run gem that's been operating since the 80s and has more than stood the test of time. The downtown Brampton resto, tucked away on George Street North, offers charming, vintage appeal and a classic menu full of such delicious Italian mainstays as spaghetti bolognese, homemade gnocchi, manicotti and veal parmigiana. It also boasts a few unique offerings, such as oysters rockefeller, mushroom caps stuffed with lobster, shrimps, scallops and hollandaise sauce and a rotating list of decadent specials (the mixed meat and cheese board was a sweet surprise and came with a tender brie and flavourful capicola). The service is informative and attentive and the homemade gnocchi is fall-apart tender, not to mention generously portioned. The manicotti is also incredibly fresh, allowing the diner to taste each ingredient. There's a reason this resto has lasted as long as it has and that reason is fresh, memorable food served by friendly, helpful staff in an inviting atmosphere.
Stacey Lee's may be tiny, but it is a mighty greasy spoon! This cozy, understated nook at Queen and McLaughlin is one of the most legendary restaurants in Brampton. Stacey Lee's thrives by serving up a hearty breakfast (be sure to ask for their shredded hash browns), and you'll definitely leave full and happy. They boast delicious, cost-efficient all-day breakfast - pancakes for dinner might be fun for the kids - plus a senior's menu for gram and gramps, and comfort food options for the parents like hot sandwiches, steak, and chicken pot pie. There's a classic small-town diner vibe happening inside, and though there might be fruit in the menu item pictured below, it's a must-try greasy spoon dish at Stacey Lee's. The melt-in-your-mouth croissant hugs a moist egg and melty cheese that will put any Timmies or McD's breakfast sandwich to shame. How many calories are in that, you ask? Who cares!
From pork spare ribs and beef brisket, to homemade sausages and fried chicken, to spicy mac and cheese and poutine, the brand new casual resto has some indulgent menu items all set for customers. They boast dine-in, take-out, and delivery, so if you want to try their food, you don’t even need to leave your house. “We smoke our meat all night over whole chunks of naturally procured wood,” says the resto. All of their meat and produce is sourced from Ontario, so you can be glad to know you’re eating local, and everything is indulgent and set for a cheat meal at this Maritime Ontario Blvd. hotspot for meat and more. With a chill vibe, kind and helpful staff, and delicious food, Food Fight has won our foodie hearts.
Kwality is one of Brampton’s busiest Indian restaurants at all times and on all days of the week - and for good reason! Kwality at Steeles and Torbram has some truly scumptious Indian food. You can get a solid meal here for well under $30 - it’s on the middle end of the Indian dining spectrum, still quite casual. Two major pointers when you go to Kwality: first, make sure you try their samosas. It’s a little steep compared to other restos with samosas in Brampton, at $2.25 for three, but they boast the right amount of spice and flavour. Samosa game strong! Then, there’s the garlic naan. This might be the best naan in all of Brampton - perfectly fluffy and doughy, and doused in butter and garlic to make the perfect compliment to your curry. As for curries, their butter chicken is the bomb, sweet, spicy, and creamy all at once. You might be overwhelmed with the decor and the amount of people when you walk in, but Kwality definitely has its own charm - and good quality food (see what I did there?). Don’t forget to pick up some sweets before you go, and wash your meal down with some piping hot and aromatic masala chai.
Honest Restaurant has locations across India and the U.S., and even a location in Thailand. Now, the popular all-vegetarian, street food-inspired resto from Ahmedabad is officially open right here in Brampton. It has taken over the old Louisiana Seafood and Steakhouse location at Hurontario and Steeles. The restaurant's expansive menu includes starters, pizzas, burgers, and Indian classics like pulav (a spicy and mixed rice), biryani, and dosa. Some Chinese options are also on the menu, including manchurian veggies, American chopsuey, fried rice, and a few different kinds of noodles. Another highlight is the milkshakes! Honest's menu includes 11 different kinds of milkshakes. Chocolate chip, lychee, cold coffee, and even pineapple are just some of the milkshakes you'll find here. And there's a huge selection of paneer (a kind of cheese). So, if you're looking for some classic Indian eats, Honest is a new spot to try them.
