Underground Societe: Sunway's Best Kept Secret

April 8, 2016

Sunway's best kept secret is now out in the open with this blog post - go ahead, indulge.

Not your typical lemonade shop

Underground Societe(US) is a stylish and creative restaurant/cafe located in Bandar Sunway. Hidden behind closed doors, this eatery has an innocent-looking lemonade shop right at the entrance, perceiving others into believing that well, it's just an ordinary lemonade stand! Only people having the inside scoop will know what lies behind it. After all, it's not called Underground Societe for no reason.

Last February, I was invited to review Underground Societe's dinner menu along with a few other social influencers.

Platter of Avocados with Jamaican Pineapple Salsa: Stuffed Mashed Egg; Concous; Cream Cheese
You get three versions of buttery avocado in a single dish. Tasted so subtle yet complex. Lovely.

Fish Ceviche with Roasted Cashew
Not a big fan of coriander so I picked them out to make sure none reaches my taste buds haha but the fish ceviche is mad good!

Crispy Chicken with Kimchi Bao
This bao is the thing dreams are made of: perfectly crispy chicken and sour kimchi sandwiched between a delightfully dense bao.

Traditional Japanese Noodle with Pickled Carrot, Zucchini, Salmon Ceviche & Roasted Cashew
The noodle is something similar to glass noodle. But it's more springy(Chinese people say 'Q')

Tomato with Mozzarella French Loaf Pizza
Not the usual pizzas with heavy texture and taste. Good for vegetarians.

Slipper Lobster with Italian Pesto
Had a tough time eating this one. Be warned - there is no elegant nor lady-like way to eat the lobster. You gotta just get stuck in and use your fingers.

US Burger - 200g Housemade Beef Patty with Cheesy Pineapple, Pickled Carrot, Onion Rings & Housemade Sauce
An already juicy beef patty soaked in secret sauce, topped with cheesy pineapple, pickled carrots, onion rings and sandwiched between fluffy black buns. (y)

400g Tenderloin with Wasabi and Sea Salt (Choice of Plum Sauce or Soya Sauce)
US was so kind on us for letting us have steak! I appreciate how they already cut the steak into pieces. So convenient for people who are lazy (like me). Just fork it, dip it and pop it into your mouth for a taste of heaven.

Underground Grenade- contains alcohol (non-alcohol version available)
I'm sure some of you have already seen this Underground Grenade going viral on Instagram quite some time ago. Ice cream sorbet on a crumbly biscuit base, coated in fluffy sweet meringue. Sambucca is poured over and lighted up to burn off the alcohol. The portion is rather big so it's meant to be shared!

Underground Fireball- contains alcohol (non-alcohol version available)
Took this sick shot at the right timing. Chocolate ball on chocolate sand with a ring of meringue and edible flowers. A flambé is done for this dessert too(literally a fireball indeed) and slowly, the chocolate ball melts to reveal its hidden chocolate goodness. Divine, yet so sinful.

Besides food, US has a vast array of cocktails.

Oriental Yoghurt

Berry Berries

Refreshing Yuzu Lime

Pineapple Gin

What else can I say about Underground Societe that these photos don't already tell you? It's a chill place filled with authentic dishes, desserts and fancy Insta-worthy beverages. The price are surprisingly affordable too, even for a student like me! I can't recommend it enough - just get yourself down to US and check them out for yourself. 

Thank you once again bosses of US - Kar Wai and Kar Heng.
