Those long cold winter months can take their toll on many a sane person. But one of the best way to beat those seasonal blues is with delicious food. Here’s a list of delicious dishes worth checking out this winter.
1. Sunday Roast at J. Red & Co
Marinated for 48 hours and roasted for 6, J. Red’s roast is just about the perfect thing for an overcast winter Sunday. Just look at that gravy.
2. Beef Dip at Carve On Lot 5
A delicious roast beef sandwich on a fresh baguette ready for the dipping in warm beef jus is basically what everyone needs in their life during these long winter months. You won’t regret treating yourself to this.
3. Tandoori Lobster at Firangi
Lobster can be a little bit harder to come by in the winter months, but it’s absolutely worth the quest if Firangi’s Tandoori Lobster marinated in Chettinad Masalais is at the end.
4. Warm pita with Humus at Paramount Fine Foods
Anything freshly baked, warm and doughy is always comforting during the cold months and Paramount has that covered with their warm pita bread. Throw in some of their freshly made humus and you’re in for a treat.
5. Oxtail at Portland Jerk
Portland Jerk serves up an insanely good oxtail that will just melt in your mouth. They’ll provide a generous helping of oxtail gravy, and who doesn’t love gravy in the winter?
6. Dim Sum at Kingsley
Kingsley Chinese Restaurant is just about the only place that serves up dim sum. Luckily, it’s pretty good. Steamed buns and warm dumplings will help beat those winter blues.
7. Fish & Chips at Heritage Fish & Chips
Heritage has been a fixture in Brampton for as long as any of us can remember, and for good reason. Picture a crisp, golden batter enveloping delicate flaky fish served with a heaping of deep-fried spuds and suddenly winter doesn’t sound so bad.
Heritage Fish & Chips Rating: 5/5 Light and crispy battered fish on a bed of chips with an Old English pub feel! The fish was so juicy and an added bonus: they actually give you enough tartare sauce! Location is a little far, but completely worth a visit, even if you're not on this end of the city! 。 。 。 #heritagefishnchips #deepfried #cheatday #torontofoodie #richmondhillfoodie #torontofood #torontoeats #northyorkfoodie #battered #brampton #fishandchips #peelregion #keepcalmandeatatheritage #foodblogger #foodie #foodporn #potd #feedme 。 。 。 Follow us for more food adventures!

10. Seafood Chowder at J. Red & Co
A good seafood chowder is hard to find around these parts, and J. Red’s Chef Cal, who happens to be an east coaster knows how to do it right. You’re in for a delightfully authentic treat. And what’s better than a creamy bowl of goodness topped while the snow slowly falls outside?
11. Perogies from Queen Gypsy Pub
You won’t be able to go back to the run of the mill frozen stuff once you’ve had a helping of these bad boys. Magically delicious is putting it lightly. The Gypsy makes their perogies in-house — from the dough to the filling. These bad boys come topped with crispy sautéed bacon and onions.

Basically any curry from Radica’s is satisfying. Pair that with their fresh Paratha Roti and you’re in business. It’ll be a satisfying meal, no doubt.
