Browns Social House is a chain of restaurants that serves upscale bar food like burgers, sandwiches, pizzas, and some healthier options like rice bowls and pasta. The restaurant has a similar atmosphere to places like Earls or Joey.
My mom and I visited the Browns location in Port Moody because we bought a Groupon for it and had to run some errands in the area.
I ordered the almost famous blackened fish burger ($16.75). The sandwich is filled with blackened halibut, coleslaw, tomatoes, and a special sauce.
The blackened halibut was cooked to perfection. The fish was still moist inside and it had a crisp spice coated outside. The blackening seasoning was flavourful and went well with the fish, but didn’t overpower it.
I love coleslaw on burgers and sandwiches. The coleslaw was very creamy and added a good crunch to the burger. I’m not exactly sure was the special sauce was because all of the flavours blended together, but this burger was great and a lighter option compared to the regular bacon cheeseburgers.
For my side I just ordered fries. The fries are double fried, so they are extra crispy. There is not too much to say about fries, but these were executed well and satisfying.
My mom ordered the burger special, which was a kobe burger (~$17). This came with cheddar, lettuce, tomato, bacon, and an onion ring. The burger was massive and messy to eat. I had some of this burger and it was great. The beef patty was juicy and the onion ring made the burger even better. It was pricy for a burger, but it sure did taste delicious.
We both enjoyed our burgers and left satisfied. Since we had a Groupon, the meal was affordable, but if you come here and pay regular price, it can get expensive, especially just for burgers. The restaurant is nicer than many of the others in the area though, so in part you are paying for the ambiance.
Yes, for a pricy, but tasty burger.
