The Highway – Autumn Menu

PSX_20190506_212137

I think it is safe to say that the cold weather is officially here. I know this because a few nights ago we enjoyed our first frost for the year, which is of course the universal signal to break out the beanies, chill some bottles of stout, light the fire (if you havent already) and generally just begin to think ...

400 Gradi

PSX_20190129_204040.jpg

Leaving the freshly (pre) opened Norwood restaurant, my wife and I both said essentially the same thing. Actually, I should clarify there, as I was actually saying things like “Oh my god, it hurts”, “Perhaps that extra piece of pizza wasn’t the best idea” and “I am never eating again”. You know how it goes – we have all been ...

@313

Porchetta roast with fennel, chilli and paprika, grilled cabbage, radish and roasted pink lady apples

Think catering food, and what generally comes to mind is either trays of monotone sandwiches and baguettes, or plates of uninspiring golden brown fried items. And sure, while I love a good sanga and arancinni as much as the next person, its hardly memorable stuff. @313 obviously felt the same way, as they set about gearing up their function space ...

Jekyll and Hyde

PSX_20180828_211613.jpg

For someone that likes to keep an eye out for new and interesting place to visit, it never ceases to amaze me just how many there are that have never even been a blip on my radar. Sure, this is far from a full time pursuit – if only – but it’s not often I am completely surprised by somewhere. ...

The Playford Restaurant – Festival of Food 2018

Entree_wagyu

There are some places that just get it. You know, really understand what it is to be in hospitality. Just as some people seem to be born entertainers, and make the simple act of walking into a room an event – certain establishments seem to naturally get things right. The Playford, for me, is one of these places. A little ...

Goodlife Pizza – Glenelg

Hahndorf salami, baby bocconcini, basil and olives

I remember back in the day – which is a rather vague period of time I know – but goodlife Pizza was essentially THE location for gourmet pizza. Positioning themselves as organic and charging a premium price, they really set themselves aside from the crowd. Since that time of course, many have followed in this path with woodfired gourmet pizza ...

Tucked away in the ground floor of an office building on King William Street is a gem of a Vietnamese restaurant. It does feel more than a little strange having people walking right behind you, on the way to or from the lifts of their office, while you are having lunch. This becomes doubly unusual when you are sitting having ...

Carmine & Co 50th birthday bash!

IMGP1113_rs

I think I want to be adopted into an Italian family. It’s not the first time I have thought this either, but it was just reinforced having walked away from the 50th birthday celebration at Port Pizza Bar (aka Carmine and Co). 50 years is a long time for a restaurant to exist, and to not just survive but thrive ...
