Healthy Dishes at Society Cafe; Origin India Gets Happy

ENCORE LAS VEGAS — Kim Canteenwalla, the executive chef at Society Cafe, says he’s offering lighter and healthier options on his menu now. Now the restaurant offers Liquid Life, juices made with veggies. Guests can order a flight of them dubbed the Stop Light Flight. Other light fare includes caramelized seared scallops with pea puree, micro fennel, bacon and pistachio gremolata; black garlic prawns with young artichokes, ratatouille, charred tomato vinaigrette; the “Skinny” salad comprised of poached rock shrimp, Napa cabbage, arugula, radish, rice cracker, miso and yuzu dressing; and lime and cilantro lump crab salad with charred corn, jicama, hearts of palm, avocado and tomatillo salsa, among others; and a lobster fried rice side dish that is a far cry from the inherently oily versions frequently served at Chinese restaurants.
