Bbq shrimp and grits – Brown Sugar Kitchen

Bbq shrimp and grits - Brown Sugar Kitchen
With brown sugar butter and apple cider syrup. $15
Brown Sugar Kitchen, Oakland CA

I’m still annoyed by the ridiculously long wait that we had to endure and the bad service we encountered at this place, when the food wasn’t even amazing enough to make up for it. This bbq shrimp was super sweet and became nauseating after eating it for a while. Needless to say, I didn’t finish. This place also uses Barilla pasta, an blatantly anti-LGBT company. Definitely not returning…

  1. Just read an article over at that made me want to visit the restaurant – but then I read a few bad yelp reviews and I began to doubt it. This definitely solidifies that doubt … too bad.

    It sounds like such a good concept (and the chef is publishing a cookbook!), but I guess the restaurant needs some work first :\

    • Yeah, this place gets high praise from every where, even Oprah. But if the wait is horrendous, the service horrible, and the food mediocre, then it’s NOT worth your time!
