South Society, Mount Waverley

Lately I just can't get enough of burgers. We recently visited South Society in Pinewood for a burger fix. We've walked past a couple of times, realised its place as a new café (it used to be a very unmemorable restaurant) and decided to give it a try one day. The layout was clean and spacious, with plenty of room for solos, couples and big groups alike.

We were seated in a little corner which would normally be the most neglected spot in an eatery, but service was pleasantly prompt. We made our order in no time and even with the constant buzzing and flow of customers, we received our orders reasonably quickly.

So the soft shell crab burger it was! I received a spicy crab encased within toasted yet fluffy buns and some slaw. The crab was good but the buns were even better. What can I say? I like big buns and I cannot lie. 

Hubby had the chicken burger and he really enjoyed it as well. The sweet potato chips were awesome! (We swapped our chips halfway so that I could have more of his.)

We also ordered the 'water flower' juice to share - a blend of watermelon, pear, lime and fennel which was quite invigorating. I'm really glad that yet another great café has popped up in this side of town, and though it is a little pricey, it definitely is a lovely place to have a meal. Looking forward to our next visit!

  1. I'm so glad this place has been turned into something worth visiting! I worked at Pinewood for years and it was a food wasteland with Subway your only safe choice. The Malaysian place there is actually really good too!

  2. Do you mean Straits Kitchen? I do enjoy eating there as well! And who can forget good old Proud Peacock! :)
