Sister of Society (Invited)

Sunday, June 19, 2016 Sharon Halim 0 Comments

Sister of Society was born as a concept in 2015. It's a place where people can hang out in a casual place while enjoying some food, beer, cocktails and more. Sister of Society is  a modern day eatery and beer house showcasing Australia most awarded beers and wines.

I was invited by Helen Reizer PR management to the grand launching party of Sister of Society. That night somehow I got so many invite that I had a couple of overlapping events and I have to choose which one I should go to. I was hopping around for my earlier invite to Sister of Society launch while my partner have been waiting.

Sister of Society launch started with mingling, some beer, wines and soft drinks. The rest of the drinks are available by purchased. Then the owner give sort speech regarding the night and thanking everyone for their support and attending the event. The food was deliver by the waiters so pretty much we have to fight for it. They started with Karaage Sake Chicken Ribs - sriracha mayonnaise ($13). The chicken is quite juicy and you can taste a little bit of sweetness on every bite. It combines well with the mayonnaise. However, it is a bit too oily.

Zesty Marinated BBQ Prawns - Thai chilli, almond creme, fresh lime ($16.5). As you can see, the prawns are quite fresh and really presentable. Nothing too extraordinary in terms of test, it is refreshing and sweet with a little bit of spiciness from the Thai chilli.

Betel Leaf - smoked eel, fresh chilli, radish, peanut and tamarind tartar ($11). I am not a fan of the leaf as it was a bit bitter and too overpowering for my taste. The smoked eel was quite nice flavour though with a taste of fresh chilli and radish making it a fresh entree.

Grilled Halloumi - salted watermelon, toasted almonds, fresh mint ($9.5). I love the halloumi, it tastes nice and very cheese like. I am not a big fan of eating it with watermelon though.

Morrocan Spiced Lamb - pinenuts, hummus, labne, pomegranate ($16.5). One of the more interesting looking dish, it taste decent and quite subtle. The lamb it self still reeks of the lamb smell.

Cheeseburger Pizza. This was the last savoury dish of the night. It was a thin base pizza and tasted just average and I did not saw this on their original menu.

Birramisu - similar to traditional tiramisu with 'Mornington Brown Ale' infused sponge ($11.5). This was the best dish out of all for me. Something unique and creamy to end the night but I kinda miss the cocoa and coffee flavour in it.

The atmosphere was lively and fun, that part I love. I also like their interior and red light neon SOS sign in the centre of the room. Cheers to Helen in creating such a lively and active party. But I was quite disappointed with the service, amount of food. My partner and my friend sister pretty much starve through the night and I was expecting something more spectacular cause they are featuring ex Mamasita Chef. To be fair, they are really busy that night and maybe I did not get to try their whole food experience. SOS is perfect for an after work drinks or just a place to have fun. I'm excited to see their future plans in creating more outdoor seats at the side of their cafe. I'll see you then.
