Mexican Society

Ocotpus Tentacle

Think Mexican food, and personally it brings to mind images of sloppy tomato and cheese laden plates, devoid of an interest or personality. Just some beans, beef mince, lots of red and yellow stuff and that’s about it (other than maybe a bit of pickled jalapeno, cause that makes everything Mexican, right?). This is certainly a hangover from an initial ...

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 ...

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

wp-image-261270854jpg.jpg

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.
