Ever since Colaba Soc­ial ope­ned its clunky wood-and-metal door to the hungry hordes in August, it has been a topic of conversation. Instead of napkins, the customers are provided with rolls of printed toilet paper. Instead of plates they eat out of chipped ena­mel bowls that would be at home in a hospital. While the menu offers everything—from social dawgs and wow baos to social substantials.

On a Sunday evening, we squeezed into the eatery, with its haphazard mosaic tiled floors and peeling metal chairs. And after contemplating Death Wings (spicy chicken wings), a Thai Thali and an OMG Burger, we dec­ided on the ‘All Day Breakf­asts’ and ‘Social Small Plates’.

The Fried Calamari (Rs 310), served in a brown paper bag alongside a fabulous podi powder and lehsun chutney mayo, was crunchy. The deli­cat­ely flavoured Prawn Ses­ame on Toast (Rs 250) arrived skewered onto a long metal spikes used for bills. The Blueberry Pancakes (Rs 210) were fluffy and infused with punchy blueberry compote. The dish of the day was The Sausage Fest (Rs 380)—fat, flavourful sausages served with sublime mashed potatoes and rich gravy. On to dessert. The Sticky Toffee Pudding (Rs 120) was yum—if you like cloyingly sweet stuff. While the PBJ and Bacon Amazeballs (Rs 210) had bits of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches wrapped in bacon, deep-fried and served with ice-cream. Clearly, there aren’t too many takers, and even the waiter looked impressed, while we struggled with the strange combination of flavours.

While we paid the bill—which arrived in an alumin­ium box labelled ‘Dama­ges’—we decided to choose the deep-fried five-star chocolate instead next time.
