Lot 100 – Hay Valley

PSX_20190314_212452.jpg

Lot 100 has come of age and is filling into its ample shoes, providing the near perfect location to enjoy some of the best produce the hills has to offer. When I first visited Lot 100 however, it was the day after it had opened and I have to say – it left me a little puzzled and unconvinced. It ...

Street Eats Greek Chicken – Yiros at home

PSX_20190221_214312.jpg

First – before I get into the recipe/cooking thing properly, one thing I want to bring up quickly is the usual internet food blogger way of having beautiful, perfectly manicured and manufactured photo’s adorning every post. You know, perfect lighting, cooking utensils arranged just so, possibly with some flowers or some carefully positioned extra ingredients offset around the main subject. ...

Soi 38 – New menu and new look

PSX_20190210_205523.jpg

Everyone has those ‘yardstick’ restaurants – the place to which all others are compared. For example, if I asked you where to go for the best pizza, then you would probably have a name that immediately springs to mind. For me, when it comes to Thai cuisine, Soi 38 is easily that place. It’s been a couple of years since ...

400 Gradi

Leaving the freshly (pre) opened Norwood restaurant, my wife and I both said essentially the same thing. Actually, I should clarify there, as I was actually saying things like “Oh my god, it hurts”, “Perhaps that extra piece of pizza wasn’t the best idea” and “I am never eating again”. You know how it goes – we have all been ...

Highway Hotel – New Summer Menu

PSX_20181116_054528.jpg

Changing perceptions can be hard work. Once an idea is entrenched – be it right or wrong – it can take an awful lot to dislodge. I make this point because it seems, despite years of redevelopment and reinvention, The Highway may be suffering – entirely unfairly – from an element of this. But first…. I was recently treated to ...

In the next instalment of TPTGLIAC – Tiny Places to get Lunch in Adelaide CBD (OK so the name needs some refinement) – I would like to introduce Mamachau. Located down near the corner of King William and Pirie Street, this little almost hole in the wall eatery is here to deliver some of the best bao you could ask ...

This hole in the wall thing is really becoming quite the popular thing around Adelaide, with more and more poking their noses out into the streetscape. Often a secondary outlet for an existing larger venue, one of the earlier adopters of has been Pink Moon Deli. With their parent establisment – Pink Moon Saloon – already well established on the ...

Contemporary Japanese Deli

PSX_20181017_171131.jpg

Japanese food has always been a little bit of a mystery to me, as my early exposure to it wasn’t overly enticing. Some flavour combinations and ingredients can be a little left field, so for a long time I just didn’t quite get it. However, eventually I was reintroduced via the institution that is ramen, and the rest, as they ...

@313

Porchetta roast with fennel, chilli and paprika, grilled cabbage, radish and roasted pink lady apples

Think catering food, and what generally comes to mind is either trays of monotone sandwiches and baguettes, or plates of uninspiring golden brown fried items. And sure, while I love a good sanga and arancinni as much as the next person, its hardly memorable stuff. @313 obviously felt the same way, as they set about gearing up their function space ...
