Being an extremely big fan of Indian Cuisine, I definitely couldn't turn down the invitation to try out Social houses seasonal Menu that celebrated Diwali!
So with my Dear Friend Reem to enjoy the tastings with , as we both violently love Indian Food, it was going to be a spicy evening.
Social house is located at the lower floor of the Dubai mall Star Atrium & Dubai Fountain & I honestly just love the ambience of this restaurant.
The Diwali Menu Began running from the 27th of October and will continue to be served until the 9th of November. You can see the Menu below:
Judging the selections available, I think it satisfies every eater that is likely to pass by and have a taste. From the tender chicken, to masala drenched Fish served with powerful coconut lemongrass rice, to juicy Gulf prawns in a Chettinadu Masala ( which is one the most aromatic + spiciest locations in India when it comes to cuisine.)
this was the Chicken Tikka masala in Punjabi style Onion & Tomato "Khada masala" & Chopped bell peppers. What we liked in this dish was the use of spices and tenderness of the meat, it gave a good variance in taste when it comes to chicken based Masala Dishes.
Now this dish was the most beautiful one we had, the rice accompanied with it was infused and blended with a strong flavour of Lemongrass & Coconut which went perfectly with the Nile Perch fish. The Nile Perch fish was extremely tender and melted in your mouth & the way all the spices worked together was both satisfying & delectable.
Next came the Mutton Rogan Josh, slow cooked with Kashmiri spices & served with Pilaf Rice.
& last but not least , came in the Final main course of "Prawn Chettinadu", slow cooked Gulf Prawns in Chettinadu spiced Coconut milk, Onion, & Tomato Masala. I loved the juiciness of the Prawns in this dish & it was a perfect end to the menu.
In overall, after speaking to the chef it was clear that they truly focused on bringing out the aromatic senses Diwali has on food, & that with this menu, hopefully a new take on india food would be introduced as I truly have gotten a little tiresome with the typical take on indian dishes we can sometimes have here!
The kindest manager Mark, offering all the information on every dish & question we had.
Dessert was a creation of Chocolate Mousse Rasmalai in dark Chocolate Mousse with Saffron Rabri & Cashew nut Tuille.
