Last week, I went to Society Dining Lounge in Yaletown with
a couple of my girl friends, Trixie, Rae, FW, Pooh, and Sis. This restaurant is
operated by Glowbal Group, which has other restaurants under their name such as
Italian Kitchen, Trattoria, Coast, Sanafir, and Glowbal Afterglow. In the past,
I’ve really enjoyed dining at the other Glowbal Group restaurants so I was
excited to try yet another one.

atmosphere is perfect for a girl’s night out. 😉
table. Their prices seemed reasonable from a glance, and their spiked
milkshakes menu was intriguing.

childhood days… When we were all full from the candy, I took the remaining
and let it dissolve into my drink to sweeten it.
Cheesecake Spiked Milkshake ($8.95) which contained strawberry puree, cream
cheese, and crème de cacao. Boy was it thick and indulgent. FW seemed to like
it because she finished all of it.

to go downhill…

suppose to have.
Tuna Casserole ($18.95) which consisted of a casserole made of shiitake
mushroom cream, sweet peas, and macaroni, underneath seared ahi tuna. This was also
kind of a fail because the ahi tuna tasted off… None of us could pinpoint what it
was, but it just didn’t taste right.
Shepherd’s Pie ($18.95) because it just sounded so interesting and unique!!
Needless to say, I have never tried lobster shepherd’s pie before this but I think I’ll
stick to my regular beef ones from now on. Hehe…
mixture on the bottom was incredibly runny and difficult to eat with a fork. Pooh, on the other hand, was perfectly fine with it so I guess it is really up to your personal preference. To me, it felt like soup underneath the mashed potatoes.
It didn’t make me feel as ripped off for paying $18.95 for something that was
- technically affordable, but it’s overpriced based on the below par quality
- very trendy and modern atmosphere
- their specialty drinks (ex. Candy Collins) and spiked milkshakes are worth a try
- good place to come just for appys and drinks with your girl friends
- very close to the Yaletown-Roundhouse skytrain station
