Presentation and cleanliness is key for a dine-in experience and August 8 hit all the right notes in those categories. Located on the lower floor of Bramalea City Centre, August 8 provides Japanese cuisine as well as Chinese. Brampton does not have a lot of spots for dim sum and August 8 was able to bring it to our city in a modern and approachable way. We say approachable because if you’ve never had dim sum, some of the dishes might seem a little out there, from chicken feet to seafood prepared in ways you may not necessarily be used to. August 8 allows you to enjoy these dishes in a much more modern setting so as to ease you into the idea of trying these foods. By choosing the all-you-can-eat option, the restaurant lets you place orders on iPads, which makes it easy to order at your own leisure. If you go for the dim sum, we highly recommend the cheese wonton as well as the fried eggplant with minced shrimp.

Although you might not think “poutine” when you hit a fish and chips place, these joints often offer fantastic fry-cheese-gravy concoctions. This classic fish and chips spot is one of the best in the city, and it also serves up a great poutine! Henry’s Fish and Chips, located in a plaza by Main and Vodden, has a poutine that doesn’t disappoint. It comes with a plate full of fries and they use real cheese curds–which was a real plus. The gravy os super flavourful and the classic poutine taste of fries, cheese and gravy worked magically in every bite.
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 front of you. Go here if you want your BBQ chicken 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.
If you travel to one of Brampton’s most sophisticated and serene restaurants, you’ll get to pair exquisite scenery with a classic dishes. Terrace on the Green, a spacious fine-dining establishment that doubles as a wedding and special occasion venue, offers great ambiance and a classic menu full of tried and true favourites, including a roasted Chilean sea bass with risotto and a very fresh slaw. Although the risotto is somewhat average, the Chilean sea bass is anything but. The dish boasts soft, tender white fish with a crispy, golden top that’s perfectly seasoned. The fish is neither chewy nor dry and the lightly fried surface adds a delectable bit of crunch to an otherwise delicate item. The rest of the menu is full of fine dining classics, so it won’t disappoint anyone looking for a traditional dinner. The steak is another highlight on the menu – it’s elegant, and served beautifully, topped with mushrooms and served with a flavourful sauce. Talk about fancy.
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.
