Food for a cause

This is a case of eating for a cause. The owners of this restaurant, Member of Parliament Denise Phua and her husband, have an autistic child and so with a group of like-minded folks, they set up a social enterprise to give people with autism a chance at working at normal jobs. The result is Professor Brawn which is a name coined by a child with special needs as well. For more information on how Professor Brawn Cafe came about, please click here.

The food quality and prices were similar to the other restaurants in the area. There are now two outlets in Singapore. The outlet at Boat Quay showcases and sells art done by children with autism.

What they are about.


I had the halibut with miso sauce. It was a tad salty because of the miso but in terms of presentation and taste, the food measured up to what is served elsewhere. I liked the mashed sweet potato as the sweetness contrasted the saltiness of the miso nicely.

As part of the set meal, I got a scoop of Macadamia ice-cream. This was good quality ice-cream – creamy and not overly sweet. Yum!
