Restaurants Adelaide, SAMadame Hanoi has just launched a new lunch on the run takeaway menu and I was lucky enough to be one of 100 people that scored a free banh mi thit (pork banh mi). The roll had that good balance of crunchy outside and soft inside and was loaded with flavoursome fillings. Slightly more upmarket than your average banh mi with the addition of pate. Most importantly there was pork meat and crackling in every bite. The takeway menu had other delicious options including a banh mi with fried eggs, croque monsieur and nicoise salad.
Restaurants North Adelaide, SAFlying Fig has been on my list for a long time and a decision to reward myself with a nice breakfast after the gym bought me here. The staff were really friendly and welcoming. Just as well I had perused the online menu prior to visiting because everything on it looked good. I love a good bagel so went with the scrambled egg and lox bagel. Even though it was relatively busy I was given cutlery and water quickly and the food arrived not long after. The bagel was amazing - great taste, soft but with texture without being chewy, good scrambled eggs and lovely salmon. Good coffee too. Can't wait to return to try a sandwich.
Pubs & Bars North Adelaide, SAUnfortunately The British Hotel is always a slight let down when we go however, I continue to persist. The staff are always ultra friendly and accommodating and it is cosy - particularly in winter. But the food always lets it down. on this occasion we stuck to the starter menu and had a tapas plate, the haloumi and the empanadas. Unfortunately not brilliant.
Cafes Port Augusta, SAI'm an infrequent weekend visitor to Port Augusta and the lack of good coffee / breakfast places has been an issue. That problem has now been solved! Great coffee. I didn't eat but the breakfasts coming out looked amazing. if you're in the area this is worth a visit.
Specialty Food Parkside, SAThe name may be Dirty but the products are clean. Simon Bryant is part of this venture and sourcing a variety of lentils, legumes, seaweed and other products from quality local producers.
Specialty Food Glynde, SALove their cheeses!! I am a regular purchaser of their ricotta and their haloumi but love their whole range. Also, their vanilla bean double cream is amazing with.... anything.
Restaurants Adelaide, SATried their coffee at the Fringe where they had van - good quality coffee. They also have some great things to go with their coffee - try their stuffed donuts where you get to inject your own filling!
Restaurants Adelaide, SAIf you like spicy schezwan food then this is the place for you. I love spicy food but some of the things that i ordered had my lips burning - take note of the chilli warnings on the menu! nice decor but a bit out of the way in Da Costa Arcade - you need to go downstairs to find it.
Restaurants Torrensville, SAI've recently returned for the great value banh mi that are chock full of ingredients! The cold rolls are still big and tasty. Very friendly staff. I am still to go back to try their pho and other dishes.
Restaurants Adelaide, SAWe had a great night catching up with friends here. Excellent service, great wine list. The food was excellent. My only suggestion is that you order the nduja and cheese as an entrée with some of the amazing damper rather than a side as it is described on the menu.
Bottle Shops Brompton, SAThey have moved to Hawker Street which is a great location. We popped in on a Friday night and they had a great acoustic singer playing. They have a good range of beers but unfortunately most of them are imported. There were no local beers on tap (not even Pirate Life) when we visited. Excellent that they've got local gins and wines but you don't really go there for that.
Restaurants Adelaide, SASunny's has it all - a relaxed atmosphere, great drinks, great food and great tunes. You can get food until late. The pizzas are amazing (as are the "not pizza" dishes). Love the retro decor. It's worth going down the alley way to find it!
Restaurants North Adelaide, SAA family birthday celebration bought us to Sato. They have Japanese and western seating options. The staff were all pleasant and very helpful. Sato has a decent wine list which was good. We tried a variety of dishes including the beef and fish sashimi - both excellent. Tempura - very good. The gyoza were tasty enough as was the okonomiyaki and katsu. The chicken kaarage could have been crispier and spicier. Not the best Japanese restaurant around but worth a visit if on Melbourne street and have a hankering for Japanese food.
Specialty Food Robe, SAThe creators of Cantina Kick had struggled to find authentic hot sauce in SA so they started making their own. For chilli lovers the sauce is not particularly hot but it has a great taste. It is now a pantry staple in my house.
Specialty Food Westbourne Park, SAAfter seeing Grund's Gourmet's range on South Aussie with Cosi I was on the internet finding out how to get my hands on some of their locally grown and made chutneys, relishes and sauces. I bought the habenero chilli sauce for me (yum) and the Trinidad Scorpion (extra extra hot sauce) for a friend both have received excellent reviews. I also bought the Worcestershire sauce which is the best SA version of the sauce that I have found so far.
Restaurants Adelaide, SAA great addition to Rundle Street. There are a range of tapas available as well as larger plates. We loved the ocean trout rillettes and the cured meats. The smaller single plates are also good. The lamb shoulder had great taste but maybe needed slightly longer cooking. The wet rice is full of Iberia Restaurant grown vegetables and is a great side dish.
Cafes Adelaide, SAArgo on the Square never disappoints - whether it's for breakfast, brunch or lunch you are guaranteed great food and coffee. The menu is innovative and huge - you will have a hard time choosing.
Restaurants Mclaren Vale, SA A birthday lunch required a careful choice of restaurant and the Salopian Inn didn't disappoint. The service all afternoon was brilliant and the food was amazing. Great drinks list. It was the perfect choice.
