2a/20 Victoria Rd
Social Hideout is not actually located right on Victoria Road, so you may miss it if you're on the main road. In fact, a lane next to Coles takes you to down Social Hideout.
It's a beautiful oasis with indoor seating as well as plenty of undercover outdoor seating too. Social Hideout seats 70 - 85 and they serve breakfast til 2.30pm. They also have an extensive lunch menu here too.
Mlady went with the Baroness to have lunch and we sat inside. The atmosphere is casual and the staff are friendly.
Social Hideout specialises in "cold compressed juices and Mlady had to try this. She chose -The Zing - orange, carrot, ginger and turmeric. Mlady is a fan of ginger and not just the chocolate coated type. She gravitates to beverages that have ginger in them.
This drink was good. Cool, refreshing and very satisfying. The ginger was not at all overpowering - as it can sometimes be. The colour was so vibrant. Presentation too was appealing - arriving in what looked like a large jam jar with a handle which is very popular nowadays.
The Baroness chose the Bula Banana - banana, dates, granola, honey and yoghurt. Baroness commented - "that's lovely". Crushed fresh banana with a nice sweetness to it. Again presentation was appealing. These drinks were good.
We tried the Avocado Smash - poached eggs, cherry truss tomatoes, fetta, lemon, basil and sourdough. This was such a good dish! Fresh and so very appetising. The tomatoes were lovely and sweet. Great taste and such wonderful combinations. The gooey poached egg - nice. Also the colour - so visually appealing. Thoroughly enjoyed this.
Next we tried the Bad Boy Burger - crumbed chicken, tomato, bacon, aioli, crunchy chips on a milk bun. We knew this was going to be "something". Sure enough - this burger had the WOW factor. This took you back to when you were a child and had a burger from your local "milk bar". It ticked all the boxes. The bun was soft and made it easy to eat the burger. Some buns can be a bit hard making eating difficult as the goodies fall out everywhere. This tasted so good and had such visual appeal. Loved the chips too. "Hamburger & chips" - how good is that!
Our last dish was the Chicken and Avocado salad - grilled chicken, cherry tomatoes, avocado, Spanish onion, cucumber and house-made honey mustard dressing. Another visually appealing dish. Fresh vibrancy of colour, good crunch with the Spanish onion, lovely generous chunks of grilled chicken which was also nice and tender and nice fresh flavours.
The food here at the charming oasis of Social Hideout is so good! You won't forget it. Their menu has a really wide variety on offer - so there is definitely something for everyone. The servings are also very generous in size too - they certainly don't skimp here so you won't leave hungry. Social Hideout is a must visit for great food in a really nice environment.
