Mexican Society

Ocotpus Tentacle

Think Mexican food, and personally it brings to mind images of sloppy tomato and cheese laden plates, devoid of an interest or personality. Just some beans, beef mince, lots of red and yellow stuff and that’s about it (other than maybe a bit of pickled jalapeno, cause that makes everything Mexican, right?). This is certainly a hangover from an initial ...

Fair Espresso (Central Markets)

20170216_123357-01-resized-800.jpg

Fair Espresso is another one of those cafes that I have been walking past for quite a long time now, casually perusing their wares from a distance, for some time now. When I say ‘a distance’, this is a few metres as they are situated at the entrance to the central markets next to the courts.

A Dark Beer lovers guide to South Australia

stouts_2

Winter. Ugh. Just the mention of this word conjures up images of dreary skies. Sodden miserable people traipsing their way forlornly through the murk, mud coating thier shoes while the cold winds from the Antarctic sandblast their eyes with near freezing rain. Oh the joy. Its not all bad though. Once you get out of the doom and gloom, a ...

Cheeseburger – Hindley Street

20170609_133117-01-resized-800

Their branding and store front is clean and bright, ...

You want something good, and you don’t want to be guessing about it. There needs to be some good options there, but ...

The Highway – Native Creative menu

fish 1 - Copy

The Australian identity. What that is precisely is particularly difficult to define. We talk about the Australian dream, being the lucky country. This sports mad bunch who drink beer, swim with sharks, have pet kangaroos, live on acres of land each, smear Vegemite on everything and ironically for an island national, don’t like people on boats. Ok so WE don’t ...

The Store

The other day we were discussing some new and interesting cafes, restaurants and bars around Adelaide. This place or that, here and there, you know how things go. I was talking about some of the new places in and around the hills, others were discussing some of the new places in the CBD or inner suburbs. All good. Nothing unusual ...
