Breakfast Date at Social House ~ Lady & her Sweet Escapes

Breakfast Date at Social House

Ed and I were at The Dubai Mall for breakfast and a little sale shopping two weekends ago. We normally spend lazy Friday mornings at home, but that weekend was an exception due to my craziness over Victoria's Secret Semi Annual Sale! Well, it was more of a need than a want as I only have few more sprays left on my VS Bombshell. I badly need to purchase a new scent before the mall gets crowded and while there's still enough stocks on sale. :) 

So, it went out as planned. I had my VS goodies before I had breakfast! Crazy eh! I know, I know! I'm just lucky to have a very supportive husband who endured the pangs of hunger while I was at Victoria's Secret for almost an hour, just for a perfume, a lotion, and a lippie! :)  Okay, enough of the girly stuff. Let's talk about breakfast! 

Social House in The Dubai Mall

Ed and I finally tried the best-looking restaurant at The Dubai Mall. We have been planning to dine at Social House ever since it opened, but we always end up in another restaurant! Social House is so posh and so pretty! It looks homey but very sosyal and just for sosyals (Filipino slang for something classy and expensive and for someone rich and sophisticated). Heheh! With the restaurant's tagline "Eat, Drink, Socialize", it seems like a restaurant for the in-crowd; the kind of group which I don't really think we belong in.  :)

So finally, that weekend morning, we firmly decided to dine at Social House and have the breakfast favourites. The prices on the menu are quite expensive for breakfast. While ordering, I did hope that everything will be worth the price! Anyhow, a weekend morning date seldom happens for Ed and I, so I guess the splurge is somehow acceptable.

Our morning drinks were served in tall glasses, each with a tiny chocolate cookie on the side. Ed had caramel latte and it was hazelnut mocha for me. It was a big YES for our coffee, definitely worth every Dirham! My drink was in 3 delicious layers; creamy froth drizzled with chocolate syrup on top, followed by a light mocha and hazelnut concoction and a strong coffee and chocolate mixture at the bottom. I couldn't speak for Ed's latte though, but he liked it. So, I bet it's delicious as well.

Then came our breakfast... our super duper WOW breakfast! The breakfast favourites were beautifully served! Ed had truffle creamy Scrambled Eggs served with rustic bread toast, turkey bacon, rocket salad and mushroom, cherry tomato and herbs side dish. He was so happy with his choice!

I had mixed forest mushroom, cheese and fine herb three egg omelette with chicken sausage. Just like Ed's choice, my breakfast also had bread toast, rocket salad and mushroom, cherry tomato and herbs on the side. The omelette was cheesy, gooey and very very tasty! I also like the salad dressing. It wasn't my fave classic vinaigrette, it was mild tangy and a little sweet; twice as delicious as my favorite dressing!

And while having a lovely breakfast date, we enjoyed this great view of Burj Lake and tall skyscrapers at Downtown Dubai. It definitely went down on our record as "the best weekend breakfast in Dubai". Let's see if something can top that in the coming months. :)

But nevertheless, having a son is worth everything. Enjoy moments like this. By the way, the egg omelette looks so yummy. Kanina ko pa actually bina-balikbalikan un photo, haha.
