Jamaica Blue (Myer Centre)


I must be honest – the Myer Centre is not somewhere that I frequent on a regular basis. In fact, to state it is ‘not regular’ is to somehow suggest that it happens even occasionally.

The Taxpayer – Sliders and Cocktails menu


Cocktails are not your normal, first thought when it comes to food pairing beverages. Of course, there may be people out there who are shaking up a quick martini or cosmopolitan to have with their meals, but I feel quite safe in saying that this will be the exception rather than the rule.

Burger Theory – Butter Chicken Burger (November No.3)


Butter chicken. Beef patty. Burger. The same burger. Hmmmm….. We love Indian food, don’t get me wrong. Cooking some great curries from scratch is one of the highlights of the colder months of the year, so we fully appreciate the flavours and balance that goes into these creations.

Chicken & Pig – Pork Panini


As the growth in Adelaide eateries continues seemingly unabated, the previously largely overlooked strip of Pirie Street has seen the opening of 3 new venues in a short space of time. Oggi, a pasta and wine bar; Abbots and Kinney, a bakery/patisserie; and now the subject of this post, the simply titled Chicken and Pig.
