Social Eating House

House-made Pasta

If you’ve had the privilege to visit Italy in your lifetime, we bet you can pinpoint the trattoria that served up your most memorable pasta. Enter Social Eating House’s House-Made Short Pasta dish. Showcasing authenticity at its finest, if you’ve ever had fresh pasta before, you’ll know what difference this technique makes to the dish’s quality. The key to perfecting a house-made pasta dish is using ingredients that enhance it, rather than outshining it. Each bite will offer a mouthful of hand-picked crab, zucchini blossom, tomato butter, and roasted chilli oil. Trust us – you’ll dream of this dish long after it leaves your lips. What are you waiting for? This is a meal you have to try for yourself.

Burrata with fig, grape, raisins, mint, and pistachio

It wouldn’t be Italian food without burrata. Welcome – Social Eating House’s Burrata Dish with sweet figs, grapes, raisins, mints and pistachios. It’s the flavour medley of our dreams and tastes just as good as it sounds.


Roasted W.A Octopus Skewer

Now let’s go to the Italian coastline, where seafood is freshest and flavour is abundant. The Roasted W.A. Octopus Skewer is a must-have for any seafood enthusiast. You will typically find this dish amongst a spread of Italian dishes, met with excitement and wide eyes as it hits the table. Orzo’s marinade of arrabbiata sauce, chilli, marinated capsicum, and nigella seeds is precisely what an octopus skewer calls for – bold flavours and a touch of chilli.

Gnocchi with smoked pumpkin, gorgonzola, macadamia, and sage

A centuries-old, quintessentially Italian dish that you’ll find on any great Italian restaurant’s menu is gnocchi. Whilst house-made gnocchi is a highlight on its own, the essence comes from what ingredients you mix within. Orzo has introduced its new menu, starring the Gnocchi dish with smoked pumpkin, gorgonzola, macadamia, and sage. It’s a classic dish that has been a long-standing menu item for trattorias across Italy since the beginning.


Coconut-washed Negroni

While Kōst is a modern Australian establishment dishing up mouth-watering plates of wagyu beef and Mooloolaba King Prawns, you can savour Italian sips of their top-notch negroni, with a tropical take! Enter – the Coconut-Washed Negroni mixing Coconut Washed Tanqueray Gin, Campari, and Vermouth. One sip of this and you’ll be transported straight to the Amalfi Coast – yes, please!
