Matcha latte - strong matcha taste greets you with each sip, then the sweetness settles in on your tongue like the comfort of home. Poached eggs, besides being aesthetically perfect, were on point with runny yolks which still held in shape. Salad dressing is really good - tasted like soy sauce, mirin and some garlic? Enjoyable brunch.

This classic Greek meal features a warm, soft, house made pita bread.

Wrapped within is a medley of fresh vegetables, including crisp lettuce, crunchy white onions, juicy tomato, and tender cucumber.

Strips of rotisserie marinated beef, coated in a mix of spices (including salt, pepper, powdered garlic, oregano, cumin, parsley), sliced thinly, are generously stacked within.

Dressed with tzatziki, each bite gets you a mouthful of each ingredient, bursting with bold vegetal sweet savoury salty bready flavour. Very satisfiying.

Great for sharing, and might be a bit overwhelming for 2 normal eaters. The fries were chunky and crispy albeit slightly oily, so a cup of cold tea would be a good pairing for this sharing plate.

The type of food for the diet-conscious - chicken breast patty and a side of homemade mashed potatoes, mixed in with grilled corn for that extra crunch. Chicken breast meat is usually quite tasteless, but the mashed potatoes, shio konbu and roasted hazelnut toppings balanced out the taste palette and made the healthy meal a tasty one.

Bacon and eggs sprinkled with handmade yakiniku sauce, spring onions, seaweed, sesame seeds, atop a bowl of Japanese rice. The bacon and eggs were a mix of savoury and sweet. The bowl was filled to the brim with glistening white rice. It’s a scrumptious bowl of protein and carbs that will keep you very full for a very long time.

This was creamy and tasty, but not heavy at all. The pumpkin taste was light, and it was consistent throughout the creamy soup. Pumpkin soup was not on the main menu, and I guess we got lucky!

Think deconstructured upsized gyro, featuring a box with 4 components.

There's vibrant aromatic fluffy Saffron Rice, alongside a fresh medley of vegetables in the Greek Salad, including crisp lettuce, crunchy white onions, juicy tomato, tender cucumber, wispy curly endive / frisee, and soft wild rocket leaves / arugula. Flavours of bright vegetal sweet bitter herbal here.
.
The tender chunks of Rotisserie Chicken Meat have a bold savoury spice flavour from the marinade (including salt, pepper, powdered garlic, oregano, cumin, parsley), while the creamy cooling Tzatziki and sharp Thousand Island Sauce lend additional flavour.
.
Very satisfiying, and good value for money.

Well, it only made sense that Brown Sugar came up with some sweets to make its name sound more legit. On those days whereby the weather out there was crazy hot and all that was needed was an air-conditioned eatery to spend the afternoon, this might be something good to go with a low-sugar hot beverage.

Consider getting their Strawberry Fairy Honey Toast (S$6.80) which included a stack of chunky toast cubes topped with homemade frothy cheese cream, strawberries, blueberries, Milo powder and honey drizzle. Not bad for a simple yet somewhat Instagrammable treat, plus for weekdays between 2.00pm and 6.00pm this would also come with a cup of coffee or tea.

Available from around 11.30am onwards, one of the four main dishes of Brown Sugar was the Prawn Laksa Noodle (S$7.80), which was also claimed to be the Singapore classic.

The ingredients included some large prawns, fish cake, “tau pok” and half a boiled egg, and the dish was garnished with chopped Laksa leaves. I was quite pleased with the freshness of the prawns as indicated by its crisp to every bite, and it seemed that the “lemak” flavour was quite there too. I would be even happier if the gravy tasted less diluted to accentuate the soul of a good bowl of Laksa.
