BAY AREA MUNCHIES

BROWN SUGAR KITCHEN

If you are looking for a great brunch spot and to step up your chicken and waffles game then you must try Brown Sugar Kitchen. Our food editor gave BSK a try, and it's definitely a mouth watering good time.

As someone who has never had chicken and waffles before, I have to say that Brown Sugar Kitchen (BSK) serves the best chicken and waffles ever hands down. I originally went to BSK because I was craving some authentic soul food such as shrimp and grits to be specific however, after I reached for a bite from my boyfriend’s plate of BSK’s famous chicken and waffles, I was instantly hooked.


The waffles were airy and soft on the inside yet crispy on the outside. It was like biting into a sweet, fluffy cloud of deliciousness. With every bite, we each took turns trying to figure out what ingredients made it so good. We were hooked!

The buttermilk fried chicken was also incredible. The skin was crunchy, crisp, and well-seasoned, keeping the meat soft and juicy. Halfway through the meal we realized that the insane wait was all worth it.


If you are looking for a great brunch spot and to step up your chicken and waffles game then you must try BSK. The restaurant has a casual atmosphere which welcomes all with its amazing staff and chill vibes. I recommended getting a chai or an espresso drink while you wait.

What we ordered: 

 Macaroni and Cheese & Corn Bread

A side dish. Delicious compliment to the main entrees.

Barbecue Shrimp and Grits

Not as popular as the chicken and waffles but just as incredible. Its very rich and creamy with an authentic mix of spices. Slightly spicy.
