Honey Toast

$12.00 · 8 Reviews

Nostalgia is one powerful emotion to appeal to, but works only when used wisely.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Brotherbird were known to have closed for one entire year in light of the pandemic last year. Some people, including myself, were worried about the future of their store.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It seems like they’ve taken a step back to reflect on the operations before they put a cap on it in April 2020, evaluated what worked and what didn’t, and came back stronger.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Before they closed, they did away with the Mochi Donuts with Softserve, a mainstay that was a crowd magnet, whether you were a regular or an acquaintance. They traded it with some honey toasts and gelati, which felt like a step forward too fast.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This time, they brought it back to what worked for them and even paired it with 2 other variations (ie waffles with softserve & fried croissants with softserve). Let’s get one thing straight though - there was nothing inherently wrong with what they did last year.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Yet, many can admit that that, in contrast to this, pointed to a pace of the brand’s evolution that was easier for the crowd to follow and appreciate.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
They still kept some of the new, which can be found among their savoury mains. They had found the perfect balance of bringing in the new and retaining the classic, which teems with nostalgia.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’ve been back twice now, and it’s full house on both occasions. A lot of items are sold out with 2 hours to go to closing time. It’s as though they never left or closed shop.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
They’re one of the few examples of F&B establishments that have tapped on the concept of nostalgia perfectly. All I can say at this point is: I’m happy they’re back.

Finally had the chance to try @BrotherBird_Coffeehouse’s Honey Toast. Crispy toast goes extremely well with ice cream as it gives a nice contrast in texture. Personally, the poached pear doesn’t play much of a role but I guess it’s nice to have.

I don't know how else to describe having the Honey Toast with Poached Oranges & Madagascan Vanilla Bean Gelato besides saying that it felt…nice? This dish felt like a nod all the things that brought us warmth vis-a-vis our childhood days. 💭⁠⠀
⁠⠀
The poached oranges pieces that I got were subdued in tartness. Yet, they were plump enough to unleash a refreshing burst of it which would cut the overall sweetness of the dish. 🤤⁠⠀
⁠⠀
The honey-drizzled toast itself - this one felt like the big brother or big sister of the festive treat that is honey-coated cornflakes. Like the elder sibling that would pave the way for its younger, and equally promising ones. In short, it was a comforting dessert.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
It may seem like I'm talking out of my a** lah, but take it or leave it - I experience my food on a more visceral level. (7.4/10) 🤷🏽‍♂️⁠

Their Honey Toast ($12) sees a liberally buttered slice of toast drizzled with honey, then served with a side of spice poached pears, ice cream of your choice, and a little crumble over the top. Such a humble desert, but get this my friends: every element is perfectly executed and painstakingly made from scratch. From the tender pears lovingly poached for an hour; the handmade Madagascan vanilla ice cream ridden with beautiful specks of vanilla bean; to the house-baked white bread, slowly toasted over the fire till all that glorious melted butter’s absorbed, then given a quick blast on the salamander for that lovely caramelisation on top. Honestly I couldn’t get enough of that buttered toast: so so moist, and that touch of salt really helps balance out all the sugar in this dessert. For those who think butter’s bad for you? Newsflash: we are all dying. Every day. Eat some butter before it is too late.
