La Boca Bar and Grill – Argentine Burger

La Boca Bar and Grill - Argentine Burger

Only very recently I stumbled across this place while staying in the Stamford Grand at Glenelg, as somehow we had missed seeing or hearing of it’s emergence on North Terrace (but given I never really go that way, this is hardly surprising). Despite the fact that Swish had been there for years, and also offered their “Magnificent Seven” burgers – ...

Back to Peel Street we go for another look at a relatively new venue, Kaffana. I hadnt heard of it until I saw the story about 7 new bars in Adelaide, and then discovering they had a weekday burger special on, I quickly decided what my lunch was going to be.

A wood grill is their point of difference, and this is a something that definitely attracted ...

Recipe – World Cup Burgers – Italian Turkey


Having covered off Australia, Brazil and Portugal, two of whom were unable to get beyond the group stages, we shift our focus to Italy. And yes, they have also boarded a plane well before now and headed home. In my own defence though, I made this before they managed to completely under perform in their 2nd and 3rd matches.
