This is an upscale-casual family-friendly “Social House” dedicated to the art of presenting exceptional cuisine in a stylish, comfortable setting. They refer to themselves as a “Hybrid Neighbourhood Pub” where the emphasis is on fresh and made from scratch right down to their own spices and sauces and feature both a seasonal and “core menu” that is value oriented without compromise. Each location boasts originality to fit into the local marketplace while keeping their concept.
On the starter menu the Crispy Calamari and Jalapeños are a popular choice. Calamari rings and sliced jalapeños are tossed in lemon water, then hand breaded, deep fried to crispy golden, sprinkled with Browns Signature spices, and served with their house made Tartar Sauce.
The Crunchy Spicy Tuna Tacos are packed with flavour, and just the right amount of heat. Ocean Wise™ albacore tuna is marinated in Sriracha, Jalapeño Tabasco and lime juice, then stacked in a fried gyoza shell with guacamole, taco slaw, tuna, and topped with miso mayo, green onion and a jalapeño slice. It’s a great mix with a little heat and a lot of flavour. The addition of the gyoza shell gives the dish a nice light crunch.
The Healthy Social Bowls are a great, filling option, and the Blackened Chicken Bowl is a fan-favourite. This dish has a tender, juicy chicken breast topped with blackened spices accompanied by almond rice and their signature Cowgirl Salad.
Don’t miss the hand-stretched, thin crust pizzas. The 3 Meat Cowboy Pizza stands out with its charred pepperoni, bacon, sausage, mushrooms, corn, and mozzarella. It’s topped with herbs and house made pizza spices to finish.
Save room for dessert, because the Chef’s Homemade Warm Brownie is impressive. Vanilla ice cream, salted walnuts, hand-cut milk chocolate and caramel sauce accompany this brownie. This dessert is large enough to share… if you are feeling generous.
Social Hours are Monday to Friday 3-6 pm. All the Social drinks are $4, including Browns Social Lager, handcrafted by Granville Island Brewery.
