The Social Place with branches in Tsim Sha Tsui and Central, serves “fun” dim sum and other light dishes.
Prices are around the mid-range and it’s the small details of the restaurant make the dining experience memorable.
After being seated, look into your plate but don't be shocked to see ants or flies on there! But don't worry, they are only painted on to give you a laugh. Our sense of humour!
We ordered a Spanish beer, which was quite light compared to the usual supermarket brands.
In terms of food, don't miss out on the signature roast pigeons, and don't be scared to get your hands dirty.
They were tender and juicy on the inside, with an extremely crisp and flavourful skin.
There’s also the piggy buns, which look cute and have a sweet potato filling on the inside.
The appetizers were delightful and we particularly enjoyed the radish wrap. The radish was crispy and fresh and the smooth flour wrap provided a contrast in texture. We also tried the iced sweet and sour pork, which was literally placed in ice. The dish was refreshing and surprisingly tasty even though served iced. The pineapple was also extremely sweet.
The Social Place is the place to go for a fun dining experience! The clue is in the name! But if you can, reserve a table and tell them what you want to eat from the online menu either the day before or by 11.45 in the morning.
