Chinese New Year is a time for gathering and we wanted to try cute Dim Sum. I have heard of Social Place for quite a while but every time when I wanted to try, the queue is so long. Reserved a table for 5 one week in advance to avoid queuing on a Saturday afternoon. As predicted the place is packed when we arrived at 1pm on Saturday.  When we arrive, the reception was full of people and it took us 5mins before we reached the receptionist.

Chinese New Year is a time for gathering and we wanted to try cute Dim Sum. I have heard of Social Place for quite a while but every time when I wanted to try, the queue is so long. Reserved a table for 5 one week in advance to avoid queuing on a Saturday afternoon. As predicted the place is packed when we arrived at 1pm on Saturday.  When we arrive, the reception was full of people and it took us 5mins before we reached the receptionist. Even after advance booking, the receptionist told us the table was not ready and asked us to wait. Whilst I was waiting, I noticed Social Place offers Dim Sum class! After 20mins, a table is ready. In the middle of the restaurant, there's a tennis table. The table is good for large number of guests. Sofa seats near the open kitchen area was offered to us, lucky it was not noisy.

The bowls is so funny, it is either ants or flies. My bowl was crawling ants. The ants was not 3D, it was painted.

Back to the food, there are many options on the menu and it took us quite a while before we could decide what to try.

Mini gloves and hand wipes were offered to eat it. Mini gloves is an excellent idea! Wearing them to eat pigeon, our hands will not get dirty. The pigeon is meaty and juicy...the skin is very crispy. It does not taste like it was prepared and waiting to be served...it taste like freshly made
. On the first bite, the pigeon meat is so hot and the meat tears out easily with juice leaking out.

The rice is larger than we expected, each person ate at least 2 bowls. Strong 荷香 and the rice ingredient incudes shrimp, chicken, scallop and duck. The rice was over soft and a little salty to us.


Social Platter A+B $109
The social platter cost $109. You need to choose items from section A and B. Section A (3 items, choose 1) are cold starters. The drunken chicken have a strong alcohol smell and taste. The meat is tender and smooth. Section B(16 items, choose 2). Ivy mosses with Jellyfish (貢菜海蜇) is also a cold plate. Ivy mosses and jellyfish (貢菜) is so 爽. The sauce is sesame oil and soy sauce, it was not too salty with a tint of spicy..refreshing cold plate. Season chicken & Noodles Salad. Remember to mix the chicken and noodles smoothly! The sauce is similar to Ivy mosses with Jellyfish except we can also taste peanut butter. The noodles is smooth and chewy.

The buns looked so elegant, black in color with 3 gold decoration on it. The bun texture is so soft and the inside is custard fillings. Please be careful when you eat. The custard is hot and will spill out when you bite.

The buns is nicely decorated, it is in shape of a mushroom! I love it! Same as the previous 2 buns, it is so soft. Nicely decorated buns are usually handmade with heart. This is vegan buns, every ingredient inside the bun is vegan. Strong truffle and mushroom flavor.

The dumpling skin is made of cuttlefish so it is black in color. The skin texture is thicker than normal ones. It tasted like a normal shrimp dumpling.

It looks like a cherry tomato with sugar bits. We thought the skin was soft but to our surprise it was deep fried. The leafs is mint. Even with the sugar bits, it was not sweet at all. For those who like mint leaves, you could consider eating the leafs along with the dessert.


Overall, we enjoy the dim sum and commented every dishes we ate. Will introduce to those who have not yet tried to come. Food in here is worth trying...it is more than just dim sum. One thing we found it trouble is that it is difficult to catch any waitress as they are busy running around and didn't hear us. Food there is worth trying.
