Brampton native Rick Matharu and winner of Food Network’s Recipe to Riches recently opened up his first restaurant on the border of Brampton and Mississauga. He’s serving up some mean Indian Canadian fusion food that you’re definitely going to want to try, and here’s why.
1. They’ll put every samosa you’ve ever had to shame
We’ve bragged about Rick’s awesome samosas before, and everything we’ve said is still true — their samosas are the absolute best. With flavours like tandoori jerk, butter chicken, Punjabi cheeseburger and ras malai cheesecake, it’s not hard to blow any other samosas you’ve ever had completely out of the water.
2. They’ll make you love salad
Their Tandoori Chicken Salad is how every salad should be. Salad greens topped with their warm, marinated tandoori chicken, coriander, fried onions and a bunch of other goodness. It’s got a nice spicy kick to it, and guaranteed you’ll want to eat it every day for the rest of your life.
4. They have tandoori bacon
Their Punjabi Cheeseburger is topped with a bunch of good stuff like their house made achari mayo, but also the best thing ever — tandoori bacon. If you like a bit of adventure when it comes to your food, you’ll want to try this, you won’t be able to find it anywhere else around these parts.

5. They have tasty vegetarian options
At Rick’s Good Eats, vegetarian options aren’t an afterthought. They put just as much innovation into their veg dishes as their other menu offerings. Dishes like their grilled shahi paneer and their dosa burger are carefully crafted and packed with just as much flavour.
6. They’ll make you feel semi healthy while eating fries
Fries chaat is like the South Asian take on loaded fries. But instead of the sour cream, cheese, chili and other junk, you’re getting Rick’s secret hari sauce, coriander, onions and tomatoes. It’s fresh, it’s light and you won’t feel too bad about indulging. After all, you’re fulfilling your daily vegetable intake too.
7. They have Superwoman’s seal of approval
If their delicious looking insta pics aren’t evidence enough of their awesomeoness, then it may help to know that YouTube star Lilly Singh regularly drops into their resto when she’s visiting Toronto.

Even though she's crazy busy getting ready for YouTube Fanfest, being a boss lady, and rocking out at the Molson Amphitheatre this weekend, Lilly (@iisuperwomanii) stopped by @ricksgoodeats yesterday for some lunch! Real homies make the time. 💜 #iisuperwomanii #instarepost20
