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.
4. Brar’s Sweets and Restaurant
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 positive thinking that vegetarians do it right.
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.
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!
At Dixie and Clark beside Bramalea City Centre, Bramalea City Pizza fills their calzones with the perfect ratio of cheese, sauce, dough, and toppings. With calzones priced at $5.99 plus 80 cents per topping, I was mildly surprised at the high quality calzone and the quickest wait time on this list – a solid ten minutes. I had grilled chicken in mine, the chicken, the sauce, and the cheese were evenly spread inside, and there was a healthy amount of chicken in there. Their cheese stays gooey, their sauce is a good consistency, and their calzones are flavourful. Their service is also kind, and their calzones come with one free dipping sauce – I’d recommend their marinara. If you’re looking for a quick, quality calzone, Bramalea City Pizza is your spot.
