Located 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 to you when you visit: order early or have time to spare. I made the mistake of just popping in at lunch, hoping to quickly get a taste of a stone oven pizza. Unfortunately for me, there was no chance of a fast getaway; the restaurant was completely packed, and for good reason: every item I could feast my eyes on looked absolutely delightful and tempting. Despite a line that spanned the length of the store, the efficient staff made sure that customers’ orders were placed promptly, and within five minutes of my arrival I had my cappuccino and cannoli to go. The coffee was traditional, well made and thoroughly enjoyed, especially with the cannoli. It warmed my heart on a bitter day; next time, I’ll make sure I get a taste of the pizza too.
This is the spot in Brampton when it comes to shawarma. I will happily put this joint up against any place in the GTA when it comes to Arab grub. Straight flexin’ like Nate Diaz at a UFC weigh in, I bring my co-workers, family, friends and lovers here for food on the regular and it never disappoints. The staff here are absolutely the nicest people you will meet in the shawarma game. Support your local, independent business, especially when they are this good!
A new, 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. 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).
Baker’s Jerk quickly left an exceptional impression on me when it comes to their fried chicken. Located at Sunnyvale Gate and Bovaird, the chicken at this little spot will hit your flavor palate with a taste of homemade cooking that can be hard to compete with. I also have to commend Baker’s Jerk House for coming through on a fried chicken recipe that has the perfect amount of salt and oil and felt far from being over-saturated. When it came to the actual chicken, it was perfectly moist and flavorful. You can get your fried chicken with a side of rice and peas and I highly recommend getting the oxtail gravy to go along with it.
This is the kind of fried chicken that satisfies all cheat meal cravings. Located just north of Steeles on Winston Churchill, the Chicken Shop at Maple Lodge farms truly feels like a hidden gem for fried chicken in Brampton. Something I couldn’t overlook was the delicate seasoning which didn’t overpower the chicken but rather complemented it. On top of it all, their portions are generous–they certainly don’t skip out on making sure you get a big hearty piece of chicken. There’s no area to sit down and eat, so you’ll have to take this chicken to go but comfort food like this is always best enjoyed in the comfort of your own home anyways.
