So Tracy (@tracyayson) and I had a talk during a campaign launch at SM Dasmarinas last month and it was only two days before the actual talk that we planned to meet up to work on our slides. You can tell that this is the kind of students we were back in collge, we love to cram!
Our original plan was to work at a coffee shop in Shangri-La Plaza but Tracy decided, at the last minute, to meet in Katipunan instead. It was very timely because a friend of a friend (Hey, Chard!) contacted me a couple of weeks earlier and invited me to visit Brown's Gourmet along Katipunan. Aside from cramming, I also love multi-tasking.
It was a Friday and considering the traffic, I set the time for our meeting at 3pm since I'll be coming from an 11am appointment in Makati. Surprisingly, getting to Katipunan was not that hard and I managed to arrive a couple of hours ahead of schedule.
|This was not the scene when I got there during lunchtime.|
It could've been changed to Red's Gourmet but good thing the new management decided to keep the original name because after all, it has established quite a good number of patrons already. Plus, they're on Grab, Waze, etc... That's important.
So why Brown's Gourmet? Ever read a recipe on anything fried? You know it's almost time to eat when you reach the words "golden" and "brown" in the directions. And of course, when you think of fried food, you know it's good.
For starters, we had this:
|Chicken + Mushroom + Spinach Croquettes, Php 120|
Now for our entrees, I got this for myself...
|Chicken Cordon Brown, Php 220 - Breast Fillet, Spinach, Cheese, White Sauce, Garlic Mashed Potato, Salad|
|Perfect Plate, Php 250 - 1/4 Chicken, Choice of Pasta, Choice of Salad|
|Ube & Langka Turon + Dulce De Leche, Php160|
Brown's Gourmet is located at 2/F Regis Center Bldg., Katipunan Ave., Quezon City and is open everyday from 10am - 10pm. For more information, check out @BrownsGourmet on social media.
