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 ...

The Store – Brinner Menu Launch

20180201_174122-resized-1024-271727320.jpg

Brinner. To be completely honest with you, its not something I had ever heard of before, but it doesn’t take very long to work out what it going on. An anagram of ‘breakfast’ and ‘dinner’ in the same fashion as we have mushed together the traditional first and second meal times of the day to arrive at ‘brunch’.

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.

It is interesting to see how the market for coffee is maturing and developing in the last few years. Mirroring the growth in interest in other areas such as craft beer and cider, as well as the now ingrained (over)use of terms such as ‘organic’ and ‘artisan’, coffee is no longer as simple as it used to be.

Phonatic

Phonatic on Hindley Street is another relatively new venue to the Adelaide food scene which, given its name, it comes as no surprise to dish out Vietnamese cuisine with a particular focus on pho. On first impression, this looks more like a funky new cocktail bar than an Asian restaurant, and I mean that in the nicest possible way. With ...

​Being a hills dweller I have been well aware of Miss Perez plying their trade in Stirling, however it was only just now that I arranged to venture through their doors. I now regret that I hadn’t done this sooner….

Thanh Thanh – Pho Tai

20160707_132853-01-resized-960.jpg

​Pho is the new black, or at least that is what it seems to be given how it seems to be growing in popularity. It seems everyone has their own favourite place, and their own personal mix of how they put it all together.
