Everyone needs a stable, reliable, and consistently good place for lunch. You know, for when you aren’t sure precisely what you feel like – but you know it’s not a food court or banh mi kind of day.

Looking at my Instagram feed, you would swear that lately all I have done recently is eat pizza and drink beer. Not that there is any issue with that at all. So just to continue the trend, I offer you some words about another pizza place, and this time an old favourite – Brunelli. This wood oven pizza venue has ...

20161026_122956-01-resized-1024.jpg

If I could describe my ideal restaurant, in terms of all the features that make it up, I think my list would go something along these lines.  Starting with cuisine – it would have to be thai food.

After the recent indulgence in all things pho (see my compiled list of the best in the Adelaide CBD here) it was probably time to check out a different type of Asian soup – and ramen looked like it fitted the bill nicely.

Ding Hao

Aniseed tea smoked duck

Ding Hao describe themselves as “traditional Chinese dishes, hot pots and daily yum cha in a bustling venue with a casual ambiance.” Now this may seem like a slightly lazy way of starting a review, and in some sense you are right.

A Coffee Lovers Guide to Adelaide and surrounds

20160803_124730-01-resized-960.jpg
