The restaurant is relatively new on the city’s food front. The building has a colonial feel to it, with low lights and an abundance of wooden and wicker chairs. The seating area is relatively small, with the outdoor dining space having a capacity of about 15 to 20 people. However, the inner seating area has been utilized in a rather crafty way so that it can accommodate more than 50 people on the busiest days.
A few days back, along with a couple of my friends, I decided to check out The Lahore Social, as almost everyone who had been there kept talking about their delectable food. We ordered Turkey Bacon Wrapped Chicken and Crab Ravioli. The former is presented with a thick blob of mashed potatoes and vegetables. The chicken pieces, soaked in the juicy whole-grain mustard sauce, were cooked to perfection. The succulent crispy bacon leaves a greasy flavor in the mouth, as if preparing the taste buds for each chicken piece. The Crab Ravioli is a type of seafood bisque. The dumplings, packed with scrumptious filling sealed within layers of pasta dough, are completely soaked in Crab Bisque – resulting in a smooth, creamy soup made from fresh crab and lobster.
We followed the main course with the Chocolate Nemesis Cake, which turned out to be equally delicious. Although we were unable to try the Squid Ink Pasta and Steamed Salmon, we have them bookmarked for our next visit.
The Lahore Social may be a bit confined in its menu, and the quantity of food served might not be sufficient for some. However, the taste and quality of the food more than make up for this. If you are in Lahore and have been looking for a place where you can read, eat and calm your mind – all at the same time – The Lahore Social is the place to be.
