Cheeseburger – Hindley Street

20170609_133117-01-resized-800

The beautiful thing about Cheeseburger is its simplicity. Putting my old marketing hat on, the concept is pure. They know what they are looking to achieve, they have a core product which is clearly defined (I mean, its in the name) and its easy to communicate. There can be no ambiguity. Their branding and store front is clean and bright, ...

Kaffana Burger

20170317_133426-01-resized-960.jpg

Back in the deep, dark history of the world, this blog was all about burgers. And why not? They are the complete food group after all. In pursuit of this, quite literally hundreds of burgers were consumed over a few years, resulting in a rather intimate knowledge of Adelaide’s burger scene. One of the highlights amongst all this goodness was ...

Lord of the Fries 

All the burgers

Lord of the Fries is a bit of an interstate institution. Starting as a food truck by a couple of 20 some things, Mark and Mandy, the idea of serving great fries at festivals and events proved so popular as they toured around the country with their tiny van for a number of years. On the back of this success, they ...

Mr Viet – Pho (and a pint)

Pho and a beer, thanks!

In my ongoing search for some of the city’s best pho, this rainy winters day took us to this little hole in the wall place in the hustle and bustle of James Place, Mr Viet. Since this somewhat accidental ‘quest’ started, this had been mentioned by more than a few people, so I was quite interested to see how it ...

Café Assiette

Café Assiette was a place we went to a LONG LONG time ago when we first moved to Adelaide. This was over 10 years ago now, and despite being suitably impressed from that visit, we have only been back once since before now. This has nothing to do with how good it was at the time either…. I cannot explain ...

Social Street S2

Wow. Amazing. Delicious. Beautiful. Essentially flawless. These are not words that I often use to describe a dining experience. But this was exactly what I found myself uttering throughout the meal that was served to us at Social Street.

Lady Burra Brewhouse – Beef Burger

20160505_121710-01-resized-960.jpg

Lady Burra are the first micro brewery in the CBD of Adelaide. I would like to think that by saying they are ‘the first’ rather than ‘the only’ that someone else will be looking to join them in the not to distant future. I guess time will tell, but this is some positive thinking on my part.

Recipe – Stir Fried Potato with Chilli Sauce

It may not be that pretty, but it sure packs a flavour punch!

The next round of the F1 came around and with Chinese being on the menu, it certainly offered up a great many options. Most interesting though was that none of the ideas that we came up with would appear, more or less, on your typical chinese takeaway list. Yep, no honey chicken or sweet and sour <insert protein> being considered ...

Between the Vines – Cellar Door, Adelaide Hills

IMGP8298_rs

A great cellar door experience is something that is hard to beat. I know that may sound like a big call, but when  you have lovely people, a fantastic location, beautiful wines and some delicious local produce combining, it is really ticking all the boxes.
