Though my visit was a while back now, I remember the experience well and those delicious, fresh and innovative desserts. As soon as you walk in to Pollen St Social, you are met with friendly staff who eagerly show you to your seat where you witness the magic of the restaurant. Interiors are understated but the finishing touches are contemporary and refreshing.
The menu too seems simplistic in its approach but the executed dishes are a thing of beauty. The master piece for me however were the desserts, which you take in at the dessert bar instead of remaining at your table ( a clever way of table turning but one that works for the diner too), where you witness your desserts in the making.
I love this kind of culinary theatre and best of all staff make it a fun interactive experience. There are also a few pre-desserts to gobble down whilst your waiting for your main dessert, and although you may think three desserts might be over kill or extreme indulgence, you'd be wrong. A light and refreshing combination of flavours and textures (lime granita, passion fruit coulis, coconut sorbet) all blend to leave your taste buds zinging and your palette suitably cleansed.
Definitely one to return back to.
