Re: “Oakland's New Soul

I've eaten at the Brown Sugar Kitchen 4 times in the past 2 weeks and found the food excellent when not crowded and mediocre when busy. My first visit was around 2:30 PM on a week day and I found the waffles hot and crispy, and the fried chicken (a wing and a 1/2 breast) warm and meaty . The next time I stopped by at 12 noon and got two over-cooked, chicken wings and the waffles barely warm. When I requested a change, I received two dry, small chicken wings to replace the dried, skinny wings I had in the first place. I've also eaten breakfast mid morning and the chicken and waffles were excellent. I learned that you can request to NOT have two chicken wings. My advice is to not go when it's busy, but if you do, order the ribs or the Po' Boy, and not the waffles and chicken. It's a shame because the waffles are the best I've ever had. Tanya Holland seems to enjoy what she's doing and I wish her success; the servers should smile more.
