Ten Second Takeaway

Social had us at 1-litre LIITs;  now their new menu ensures we keep coming back for the grub too. Think quirkily-named dishes {like Andaas Apna Apna} which are flavoursome and of course, presented in a way only Social can present.


Dhingra’s Punjabi Breakfast, Tikka Tacos


The Lantern {cocktail}, Watermelon Lassi


Presentation! And the generous portions

Breakfast like a raja

dhingra Social's New Menu: Andaas Apna Apna And More

Social’s done full justice to the most important meal of the day. Order Dhingra’s Punjabi Breakfast and you’re all set with a platter of parathas, chhole, samosa, dahi, lassi and kullar chai. Other dishes include Don’t Be Salli Par Edu {a twist on the Parsi sallu par edu} – straw -spiced potatoes topped with two sunny side ups and Irani Junglee Poro.

Lunch and other meals

There are a lot of Indian touches to the new menu. We especially loved the Tikka Tacos and not just for their alliterative quality. The Kerala Coin Parathas is yet another winner – bite-sized parathas topped with laal maas, sukka chicken and paneer. The Chinese Bhel {which comes with a ‘not made in China’ disclaimer} is great for munching on whilst you enjoy a few drinks and is reminiscent of the Chinjabi chopsuey.

The not-so-new cocktails we continue to swear by

We know the LIITs are the start attraction at Social but when we decided to try some of the other cocktails, we were not disappointed. The Lantern, a combination of Jim Bean, orange marmalade and sweet and sour served in a lantern complete with a rope handle was an extremely potent and tasty drink. This was followed closely by another winner, Schizophrenia – vodka, orchid, lavender.
