As soon as I received an SMS from T to meet up for dinner (and as usual, she left it to me to make the decision of where to have our meal) what do you think was the first thing that I did ? well, get online to check out some makan places -of course ! back in the old days ( before google , before blogging , before ….) we will probably be meeting at the same old cafe and ordering from the same tired old menu…Well, we might not be necessarily enjoying better food, but I guess you get a few hits and misses ( as in life)
Societea’s tagline —Fragrant flower teas, flower inspired dessert and simple good food-that’s us, a little neighbourhood makan-place that’s great to relax with a cuppa and hang out with some cool friends ….i am not a cool gal, so I sincerely hope T is
I do not drink usually tea after lunch, as there is this phobia that I will not be able to sleep if I did ( things I worry about, tsk tsk tsk) but dining at a place with a name like Societea- how could you not drink tea ? Do not fret. Tell the waiter/waitress what you want and they will recommend a suitable brew for you. We wanted something calming, relaxing and a good night sleep and they recommended the combination of lavender and chamomile.
When the pot of lavender and chamomile tea (RM6.80/pot) arrived , it smelled like stepping into a spa , you know those aromatherapy thingy - the little candle flickering away beneath the pretty terracotta pot thingy. I was a bit skeptical of drinking this stuff . Anyway, be brave, try something new ….took a sip, the strong aroma of lavender filled my senses and then after that ( especially after the tea has been diluted with the next re-fill of hot water and the aroma was a bit toned down). … hey, it was rather nice and soothing ..
For food, T ordered the Alfredo (RM15.90) – Creamy spaghetti with pieces of chicken, T who likes cheesy creamy sauce, enjoyed this very much.
The waiter recommended Chicken Maryland (RM16.90) Tender chicken piece deep fried in breadcrumbs was not too bad, what I enjoyed most was actually the fried banana that came with this dish, generous amount of fries on the side
Societea offers free wi fi, a nice cozy environment, you can sit here for hours as they refill your pot of tea again and again and again……you can chat your problems away or enjoy your favourite book
Overall – a pleasant experience- I will return when I find more cool people to hang out with
