Mini Brown – A Second Restaurant Review

Editor's Note:  We don't usually publish two reviews of the same restaurant.  However, this week we have two reviews of "Mini Brown," a new brunch restaurant near the FCU campus.  Read both articles for a complete picture of Mini Brown, and maybe you will want to pay them a visit!

Nowadays, many students stay up all night playing online games, watching TV dramas, surfing the Net, and maybe doing a little homework.  Thus, they often wake up late and don’t know whether to eat breakfast or lunch. Now, they have a new choice – breakfast and lunch together! This is called “brunch.” There is a new brunch shop not far from FCU called “Mini Brown”. I recently paid Mini Brown a visit, and I am sure I’ll visit again soon.

        Mini Brown is a small shop, and the decoration is simple. When entering Mini Brown, you will see many dolls in front of the sales counter, a blackboard on the wall showing discount goods, and comfortable seats. There is also soft music playing.  It is a very comfortable space, and the boss lets you stay as long as you want.

All meals are traditional American cooking such as subs, hamburgers, and salad. At Mini Brown, they serve a la carte and combination meals. If you are worried about what to choose, a combination meal will be your best choice.

I ordered a combination meal called “Brown Uncle,” which included a cheese bagel, hash browns, salad, a scrambled egg, and a cup of soy milk. I loved the crisp bagel with its strong cheese flavor. My salad included fresh lettuce, corn kernels, cucumber, carrots, and thousand-island dressing. My favorite foods were the scrambled egg and hash browns because the scrambled egg was smooth, and the hash browns were crunchy and delicious. Most important, the meal cost only NT$89; that’s a great price for such a good meal!

The service at Mini Brown wasn’t anything special; there are not many waiters in the shop, so customers often have to wait 20-30 minutes. If you are in a hurry, you can call Mini Brown’s special phone line to place your take-out order. Most items on the menu are sold out before 1:00 p.m., so I suggest you order your meal before noon.

       Mini Brown is a simple shop, but they serve a great brunch. Next time you wake up late and don’t know whether to eat breakfast or lunch, Mini Brown is a good choice.
