Browns Social House (Richmond)

February 21, 2012
I've been to Browns quite a few times before. I haven't written a post on it yet because I always order the Tahitian tuna bowl — just like the one from Cats Social House. It seemed pointless to write about the same dish, but this time I finally tried something new. Yesterday was a good day to try the BBQ chicken pizza ($13.65) because all pizzas cost only $9 on Sundays and Mondays. The pizza was surprisingly good with tangy BBQ sauce and chunks of chicken, bacon and corn. I don't even like pizza that much, and I ended up having 2 slices.

I wanted something sweet and sour, so I ordered the shrimp and chicken pad thai ($15.55). I did not expect it to be so spicy! The spiciness was the kind that burns, so I couldn't eat too much of it. I also found the noodles a bit oily, and the peanuts were not very fresh. But the seasoning and sauce were quite tasty.

The #28 dragon bowl ($15.75) was exquisitely rich with creamy yogurt and savoury teriyaki sauce. Interestingly the yogurt was supposed to be spicy, but it wasn't bad at all compared to the pad thai. I really liked the accompaniment of vegetables and the soft red cabbage shreds on top. The chicken was more firm than tender, but it was still rather enjoyable. The only issue I had with the dish was the excess of sauce. The dish was very tasty in the beginning, but got a bit too rich and salty near the end as the rice and everything else were completely drenched in creamy sauce.

The food at Browns is quite decent and prices are reasonable. Portions are not very big, but should still be enough for a light meal. This is the reason I keep returning time after time.
