Vesuvio’s has been around for the past 54 years! This well-known spot has been a classic in Brampton since 1963. Residents will definitely want to check out how it’s changed since their location in downtown Brampton flooded in March 2016. Their most popular dishes are their manicotti, their gnocchi, and their wood-burning pizzas which start at about $16. They boast delectable pastas, gourmet pizzas, and delicious desserts. According to owner Maurizio Dacunto, “Everything is homemade, just like grandma makes.” Don’t forget about Maurizio’s Paninis opening up soon next to this Brampton gem.

4) Thai Pepper
Hands down, Thai Pepper has the best quality Thai food in Brampton. The quality, quantity, and cost are all worth your while. Located not too far from Sandalwood and Hurontario, Thai Pepper’s meagre decor in its unassuming plaza is completely contrary to the amazing cuisine found within. The menu offered several different choices, classics and unique specialties. Fortunately, the affordable prices makes it easy to not feel too bad about indulging in a few items. Some of our favourite items include the ever-classic shrimp tom yum soup, which boasts the perfect amount of spice and comes with huge, quality prawns, and the basil fried rice. Thai Pepper has a variety of items, too. Be warned, if you are in a rush, Thai Pepper may not be the best option for you. If you are looking to eat a delicious meal and spend time relaxing with a friend, you’ve come to the right place.
This Queen and Airport resto opened not too long ago (which they proudly display on their storefront as “Est. 2016”) operated by Sanjeev Sethi, the owner and executive chef of The Host brand. The cozy, street food inspired resto has a casual yet classy atmosphere, with unique furnishings and earthy tones like reds, greens, and browns throughout. Their dishes are served in metal bowls and plates (as if they were cooked in them – very street food-like), though their dinner plates are a simple and classy black. The Butter Chicken Fries can’t be beat and I’ll rave about them forever – aromatic, with tender chicken, creamy sauce with a kick of spice, and crispy fries. Also be sure to try their Chicken 65, classic saag paneer, and the chef’s choice Ambala Wala Chicken Curry. At reasonable prices, you can get a tasty meal here for about $25 per person.
At Hurontario Street and Steeles Avenue, Anjappar Chettinad is a great South Indian spot with a buffet, a regular a-la-carte menu including dosas. This place has a fantastic buffet on the weekends that is rather busy in the AM / early lunch hour. They’ve even got all your dosa classics like masala dosa, vada and amazing house-made chutney. The buffet ranges from a reasonable $10.99 for weekend mornings to $12.99 for a weekday lunch and $14.99 in the evening. Their dosas come with two chutneys, tomato and coconut, and a good serving size of sambhar, perfect in proportion with the size of the dosa. All of their chutneys and their sambhar were packed with flavour. They might have a variety of South Indian food, but their dosas are a highlight on their menu.
If you are looking for the full package this is the place. Sweets, hot meals, alcohol, lots of space, TVs, Nova Grill and Bakery has it all. You’ve probably seen Nova Grill and Bakery locations around the GTA, but this is one of the few that offers cooked meals. The quarter chicken meal is tied for the cheapest meal on the list, advertised at $6.99 in store. A huge perk is the variety of sides to choose from. Stick with your roasted potatoes and rice, or grab some steamed vegetables, rapini, small baked potatoes (with the skin) instead. And believe me, the list does go on. The chicken is done well and doesn’t venture far from traditional Portuguese tradition with juicy meat and a crispy-ish skin with mild or hot piri piri sauce on the side or slathered on. Come to the restaurant/bakery for a get together with family or friends and I can almost guarantee you will not be disappointed. Even if you don’t get the chicken.
