Without a doubt, Board Game Cafes have started popping up with quite a bit of frequency lately in Brisbane. For people my age (working, but still living at home), it offers us the opportunity for a place to catch up for an extended period without inconveniencing others and also giving us the chance to enjoy some games. Whilst a significant drive from the Southside, one of the more popular board game cafes is Club Sosay, in Paddington, which is where we went last Saturday.
For the flat fee of $5, we could play any games that they had and sit for as long as we wanted. At the sight of the games available for us to choose, the inner child in us could not be contained.
But onto our more pressing concerns, one of our friends, for whatever reason decided to have a huge pot of English Breakfast on a hot summer’s day, very adult-like for our session of awesome board games.
After a playing a round of game of LIFE we decided to relax with some Criss-Cross chips served with Sosay Sauce (a vegan Lime Aioli sauce mix). I enjoyed them as a good snack but felt they were a little over done as they were a bit hard on the outside and not as fluffy as I would have liked. The sauce was also not as creamy as it could have been.
The next snack we tried was a small homemade ham and pineapple pizza o. I found the pizza topping to be quite generous. Whilst I can definitely say I have had better pizzas. The base itself was very thick and reminded me of frozen supermarket varieties, and the pineapples also tasted like they were of the canned type. Having said this, I was able to appreciate the pizza in this setting and note that Club Sosay should definitely not be rated on the same basis as other gourmet pizzerias.
To wash it all down I ordered a Lemon Lime Bitters which was a cheery fizzy drink. I did note they served the drink by the cup from the bottle. Overall we enjoyed our time at Club Sosay with the board games and homey snacks and drinks. It was an interesting experience that we rarely have the time to enjoy.
