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.

The best samosas ever. Check out @ricksgoodeats at 6660 Kennedy road

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.

Come try the grilled shahi paneer. It's a must try for all our veggie friends😀 6660 Kennedy Rd unit 1

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.

Chaat fries from the @ricksgoodeats weekly pop up. SO good!

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.
