Deluxe Date Night: La Duni and Society Bakery

Posted by Jenna, Under Date Night, Food

Anniversary dinner celebration meant another Deluxe Date Night for us, something I haven’t written about for awhile. We visited La Duni based on the recommendation of a friend and it did not disappoint. If you’re in the Dallas area visit for yourself, you’ll love it.

I started with a fakejito, the first time I’ve understood why people suck these down like there is no tomorrow.

We splurged (as we always do on Deluxe Date Night) and ordered the Parrillada Argentina for 2.
Which included:
18 oz Iron Seared Prime Bone in rib eye Steak, Grilled Pork Tenderloin, 3 Argentinian Sausages, Chimichurri, Black Beans, Basmati Rice, Plantains, Yucca Fries, Pampas Potatoes, Green Salad & Vine Ripened Tomato

Basically an overwhelming amount of amazing food.

The plantains were the only thing I didn’t like, and I walked away stuffed. TH would like to go back and give their Carne Asada a try, it’s apparently the number one seller on the menu!

If you are in Dallas, you must drop everything right this moment and go get some cupcakes from Society Bakery. Next to the place where we got our wedding cake (Simply Desserts in Seattle, go! go! go!) it’s the best we’ve ever had.

From left to right, listed in order from favorite to not-so-favorite:

Red Velvet (Best red velvet ever, ever, ever)

German Chocolate

Lemon Poppyseed

Brooklyn Blackout

TH was begging me to visit once again the next day, for another round. We were like druggies, needing another fix. I’m already brainstorming the next event where cake/cupcakes from Society Bakery. Friday night is reason enough to celebrate, right?


  1. Yummmm! Society Bakery cupcakes are yummy…

    Try the Cupcakery in Uptown–I actually liked theirs better

  2. It all looks so good. The cupcakes look delicious. I need some now. I love the idea of deluxe night.

  3. I looooooooooooooooooove Society Bakery and La Duni! I was there last night (La Duni) actually! Try their chicken enchiladas – you will not be disappointed!

  4. All of the food looks amazing!!! Red velvet cake is my favorite!!! I am definitely a meat loving girl and since we have a stop over in Dallas on our way to our honeymoon perhaps we will give it a try!!!

  5. Wow, looks awesome! I could really go for a big juicy steak!

  6. I am soo glad I dont have any gas in my car and no bakery within walking or biking distance because those cupcakes look soooooooo good!!! As do you by the way!

  7. Oh, it looks like it was so tasty! What a fabulous evening. I LOVE fakehitos (I drink, but not very often since developing asthma so often go for mocktails).

    I hope you had a faaaab time. You looked lovely as well – that sparkly top/dress is lovely! You’re definitely at least a big ‘glowy’.

  8. I used to hit the Society Bakery when I lived closer to Greenvile. I’m not a big fan of cake but their cinnamon rolls are divine. I swear, that’s what they eat for breakfast in Heaven.

  9. You are a beautiful couple! You look fabulous on the “other” side of the camera – and so in love!

  10. what a nice celebration… it’s making me hungry!

  11. Can I just tell you how incredibly jealous I am that you have a bakery so close! (Wal-mart and Safeway(sorta) don’t count.) I miss that about being in Germany. Bakeries EVERYWHERE! I loved that.

    Congrats on your annieversary! Sounds (and looks) like you had a great celebration.

  12. Awww, that photo of y’all is so cute! I love it!

  13. Adam and I need to get back into date nights. We were doing so good and then we slipped out of it! All good though. Looks like a fun night!

  14. If you don’t want your plantains, can I have them? Please? YUM!
    *sighs* Wish the hubby and I could go out by ourselves. Never mind the fact that we’d like to go away for our 2nd anniversary next month. *sniff, sniff* I guess that’s what happens when you move over 1500 miles away from any family and have a 9-month-old son.
    I’m sure you’ve already been told this, but ENJOY these last months of just the two of you!
