Level One – Electra House 

Sashimi_rs

Level 1 at Electra House is the reboot of their initial restaurant, the award winning Olea. This has been the case for about a year now, however it has gone through a futher refinement of the concept. With a new chef on board, Jamie Kang, there has been a marked shift in the current menu from the Greek inspired Olea. ...

Lost in a Forest 

Set amongst the trees and hidden away in the beautiful village of Uraidla is one of the Adelaide Hills best kept secrets. Wood oven pizza is a bit dime-a-dozen these days, so this alone is not enough to raise any eyebrows. An old church being the main building and kitchen is an interesting feature, as is allowing patrons to simply throw ...

Farina 00 Pasta and Wine Bar

Can we ever have too many really good pasta places? With a focus on absolute freshness and preparing almost everything in house, its easy to see the quality and attention to detail shining through at the relatively new Farina 00 Pasta and WIne Bar. I was invited down – as a family mind you – to come and sample their ...

Ryo’s Noodles

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. Doing some quick research, it seemed that Ryo’s noodles was the place to be checking out, so ...

A Pho Lovers Guide to the Adelaide CBD

It is apparent that one of the hottest things this winter is to warm up and nourish your soul with a steaming bowl of Vietnamese beef soup. While laksa has had its time in the sun, it seems its now time for pho to shine and get its much deserved kudos.

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 ...

Miss Perez

​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.

Laksa House

Warming Asian soups and broths seem to be very much in vogue at the moment. While it might just be that I am becoming more familiar with them myself, there are a growing number of outlets that are building themselves (more or less) around a single entity, be it ramen, pho or in this instance laksa.

Adelaide Pho

20160414_122058-01-resized-960.jpg

Habits can form quickly it seems. I go many years without being aware of pho, then a few more not having tried it. Now, once that cherry is popped, I was back for more again within the same week.
