Boxing Cat Brewery
519 Fuxing Zhong Lu
Normally we go to the Boxing Cat Brewery in the evenings for dinner and drinks.. but this time, we decided to try their Brunch out since it all looked so appetizing on their menu. We were surprised it was actually quite a popular spot for brunch, with a full house when we were there. What I love about the Boxing Cat is their stellar service – it’s always good! Very accommodating, friendly, and no strange behaviour. Best of all, if you have any ‘off the menu’ requests, it’s handled well instead of a blank stare. Yay :D
Best of all? They serve American Southern food. One of my favourite cuisines (can it be considered that?), EVER!!!!! Fried chicken, biscuits, corn bread, etc etc. It’s all sooooooo good! I live for the stuff. I should caveat here I’m not from the Southern states of American (obviously!) so perhaps the food is spot-on authentic, perhaps it is not. I don’t particularly care either way though, because I like it :P I’m sure that deep down, I’m a Southern – the food really is that fab :P
We did have a bit of a carb overload though, as we ordered 2 really stodgy, heavy dishes without realising. The Southern rosemary biscuits and sausage gravy with 2 poached eggs, potatoes, tomato were luscious and good comfort food. Soft, dense warmed biscuits with a creamy rich gravy and bits of sausage, topped with a jaunty poached egg – divine. There are only 2 biscuits, but it actually is totally sufficient because they’re pretty heavy, plus there’s a generous heap of potatoes to fill you right up.
We really enjoyed their Fluffy buttermilk pancakes with maple syrup, butter, and whipped cream too. Lovely and fluffy, they had a lovely texture and I really liked how they didn’t scrimp on the butter and syrup. You get 3 decently-sized buttermilk pancakes that’s enough for a main-sized meal.
I was really impressed with their Strawberry milkshake. Arriving in a tall glass, it was basically half-melted strawberry ice cream. I love thick milkshakes that are made with ice cream (as opposed to just milk with strawberry syrup stirred in there). It was perfection :)
Whet your appetite with their menu here.
