From the folks behind the Over-The-Top Milkshakes at Benjamin Browns and Flying Noodles at Hana restaurant, one would expect their newest venture would be another Instagram hit.

True enough, the entire space at Brown Butter is full of Instagram spots; from a wall full of pink roses to an entire pink shelf, pink fridge and a dual tone wall decked in pink and teal for the perfect #OOTD shot.

Apart from the layout in pink and teal, the food and drinks menu also consisted of pink and green food, mainly beetroot for the pink hue and avocado for the green, ensuring that healthy food looks as Instagram-worthy.

Items offered include Lobster Mayo Toast ($32), Truffle Mushroom ($18), Salmon Mentaiko Toast ($19), Cheesy Chicken Roll ($18), to Cajun Grilled Prawn Roll ($22).

A wide selection of Toasties (15 in total), are available on the menu, such as Beet Toastie ($15) and Shine Toastie ($15) topped with hummus and a beautiful avocado “flower” on a sourdough.

The difference is that red beetroot is added to the former and turmeric is added to the latter.

Drawing their Japanese influence from Hana Restaurant next door, Curry-On Toastie ($16.90) comes with 3 deep-fried ebi coated with Mentaiko mayo on top of Japanese Scrambled Egg and a slice of toast.

Even though the entire combination is well balanced with a slightly spicy and savoury punch, my friends commented that it is a little pricey for the portion.

For the pink-fanatics, the Salmon Mentaiko Cheese Toastie ($18) comes in a bright pink hue with a generous layer of Mentaiko Mayo.

Guys would probably prepare a more protein-rich option, the Avo Burger ($23) which caught me by surprise with a real avocado fruit shaped into the burger buns.

Instead of avocado flavoured buns, the buns split into 2 slices upon slicing, and comes with 105g of beef patty, tomatoes, onions and cheese.

Tortilla chips with salsa sauce were served by the side but it could do with more sauce for dipping.

Interestingly, the “Tuna”-Melon Poke Bowl ($14) is meatless, with generous amount of toppings such as avocado, watermelon instead of tuna cubes, mango, edamame, corn and sushi rice.

Drizzled with a choice of homemade shoyu, Wafu dressing aka Japanese vinegar or sesame sauce, the rice was soft and fluffy.

Their desserts menu is short and concise with avocado incorporated within, namely Avocado Pancakes ($18), The Works ($21) served with bacon and sunny side up, Avo Waffles ($16) and Torched Avocado Cheesecake ($12).

The Avocado Pancakes ($18) came with 2 stacks of avocado pancakes with avocado slices sandwiched in between, and topped with blueberries and banana.

Even though maple syrup is served on its side, it can be a little dry as it has a denser texture instead of the common soft and fluffy pancakes.

The highlight of the meal is the Beet Smoothie topped with Avocado Ice Cream ($10.90) and Avocado Smoothie topped with Pink Avocado Ice Cream ($10.90).

True enough, the folks behind the OOT-milkshakes craze at Benjamin Browns continue to produce Instagram worthy drinks, but are healthier this time round.

The smoothie is smooth and rich, without being too “jelak”.

For an extra indulgence, dig into the creamy ice cream in the Avocado shell to satisfy your craving.

If cheesecakes are too mainstream as a dessert, check out their version which is literals shaped like a “Cheese”!

Coming in 3 different flavours: Lemon, Beetroot and Avocado at $8.90 each, each cheesecake is beautifully crafted to create the exact shape.

Apart from the space being decked in a pretty shade of pink, Brown Butter has created a healthy menu that is colouring-free and preservative-free and yet, instagrammable.
