Kaffana Bar

Utterly amazing - the Clucky Chicken

Kaffana Bar – formerly their pop-up venue Kaffana Burger – launched today in their permanent premises. This was actually their existing building for Kaffana, so literally across the road from where it was before on Peel Street. Kaffana the restaurant has moved to Gilbert Place, so the main thing to take from this is there is now extra Kaffana permanently ...

The Bunker Sports Bar and Grill

img_20170823_192043_613-resized-1024.jpg

Lets just get one thing clear. The Bunker Sports Bar is not somewhere that people would normally write extensive reviews about. In fact, with all due respect, its probably not somewhere that people put that much thought into at all. Its not exactly new and sexy. Its not trying to be the latest and greatest anything. There is no trendy ...

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 ...

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 ...

Social Street S2

Duck curry_rs

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.

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 ...

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 ...

Bliss Organic Cafe – Marinated Tofu Burger

wpid-20150907_124511-01.jpeg

Bliss Organic Cafe is like an oasis in the hustle and bustle of the cbd, which I am pretty certain is exactly how I described it before. It’s just such a lovely place to sit and enjoy some time out from however you were otherwise spending your day, especially in the courtyard out the back.
