1. Godavari – South Indian Grandma’s Kitchen

If you love South Indian food, or you’re curious about trying it for the first time, this is a great choice! This completely vegetarian spot specializes in Andhra cuisine, which is a particularly flavourful and spicy cross-section of Indian cuisine. Their range of dosas, vada, utthapam and much more are all completely authentic and amazingly delicious. So, whether you’re visiting for nostalgia or to try something new, take Taste of Downtown Brampton as a chance to explore this cuisine!

2. La Catrina Mexican Food 

La Catrina is Brampton’s first authentic Mexican spot, and a can’t miss if you haven’t been by yet. Definitely your best bet if you’re looking for fish tacos, ceviche, or carnitas. We have our fingers crossed that their tasting menu is a little sample of everything, but no matter what, we’ll be ordering the fish tacos on the side.

3. Sul Irmanos Smokehouse

This smokehouse might look humbled, but it was featured on Food Network Canada’s You Gotta Eat Here for a reason! Classic southern BBQ is infused with Portuguese flavours and flair, and the result is just amazing. Portuguese chicken, ribs, poboys – you can’t go wrong with their standard menu, and we’ll definitely take this opportunity to check out what’s new.

4. Tracks Brew Pub

Get a taste of Ontario’s craft beer craze right here in Brampton at Tracks. Find classic goes-great-with-beer pub fare, and sample their inventive brews while you’re at it! For any beer fan, this is a great way to support your local brewhouse.
