South Society, Mt.Waverley MELB

Yet another cafe off my bucket list..2016 seems to be hitting all the high notes at this stage and let's hope it stays this way. A chance outing on a mildly hot summer day brought us here on a lazy Saturday evening.

Fully booked out but seats are available outdoors or on the communal tables, I suppose you could take a chance at not making reservations..well, unless if you are rocking up with a large crowd or if it's too chilly to dine outside.

The cafe's concept is very tapas-ish whereby plates of food are shared among everyone at the table. Choose between a few small appetizers and mains, top it off with some side dishes if you must:)

18 Hour slow cooked spice rubbed lamb shoulder with homemade hommus ~ anything slow cooked gets my approval. The lamb is coated with a deliciously sticky sauce and still retained a lot of juicy fats that simply melts away on one's palate. To bring extra dimensions to the plate, the lamb is topped with crunchy silvered almonds that must have been dusted with spices. Amazing dish worthy of that extra day at the gym;)

Lettuce, pear and walnut salad ~ a little disappointed with this one..would have liked a bit more dressing on the plate...

Cherry ripe ~ I have a love hate relationship with desserts. Having been successfully dieting throughout this year, I crumbled when the dessert menu was presented. I wanted to sample everything and in the end, settled on two desserts. This cherry ripe masterpiece would have shined with the addition of fresh cherries on the plate but nevertheless, I have thoroughly enjoyed the cake and ice cream.

Passionfruit and coconut creme brulee ~ this creme brulee is enough to feed two adults. The dessert monster in me easily polished off this piece. In terms of texture, I would like it to be smoother but that's a minor point. The flavours were well balanced and not too heavy for an after meal treat.
