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

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 ...

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.

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.

Jamaica Blue (Myer Centre)

wpid-20160301_123524-01-resized-800.jpg

I must be honest – the Myer Centre is not somewhere that I frequent on a regular basis. In fact, to state it is ‘not regular’ is to somehow suggest that it happens even occasionally. I cannot remember the last time I actually went in there, and so it is not surprising that when I received an email invitation to ...

Sneaky Pickle (Kings Park)

wpid-img_20160309_193345-resized-800.jpg

Moving from a food truck to a fixed restaurant would have to be difficult. For Sneaky Pickle to be doing this is even more of a risk, such is their passionate following on the streets of Adelaide. Its like a holiday romance – its all fun and games when you are away sipping pina coladas by the beach in Koh ...

Daisy Burger

Amid the attack….i mean reform of the food truck scene in Adelaide by the council, we have some new rays of light. Sure, there has been carnage with a large number not renewing their licenses, among them the poster child of the food truck scene, Burger Theory. However, a new bud has emerged and has blossomed into Daisy Burger. Can ...
