Mad March is upon us! And as you know, we are always on the lookout for fabulous bars, restaurants and hot spots to refuel before (or after) the many events and mayhem of Adelaide’s busy season!
During the week Lady Burra Brewhouse of Topham Mall celebrated the completion of their NEW outdoor dining area! Working closely with Adelaide City Council, they have transformed the busy laneway to create a connection between Adelaide Oval and the northern end of Adelaide’s CBD!
The area features external seating, an impressive LED light feature, large tables for catching up with friends and a seamless connection to the lane, making it feel open, yet exclusive. The ideal spot for a delicious Portuguese inspired meal and in-house Lady Burra beer!
On Thursday evening, after a hot 37-degree day, Adelaide Food Central sipped on sparkling wines and enjoyed refreshing Lady Burra Pale Ales under the new dining facade. On arrival chef Rosa, was preparing a large Paella dish, loaded with beautiful juicy seafood. The smell was delicious!
While waiting for the Paella, we enjoyed delicate canapés including a gin cured Atlantic salmon with citrus and fresh chives on a crisp crostini. Refreshing and light, which paired perfectly with the sparkling wines!
A salty beer snack is always necessary when a beer is in hand! Next were bite size apple, bacon and goats cheese tart! Salty, sweat and bacon, need we say more?
Rosas cooking was an absolute TREAT! A hearty Paella, rich in seafood flavour, with juicy prawns, local mussels, succulent chicken pieces, spicy chorizo, hints of lemon, fresh peas and perhaps, a lug of beer!?If the canapés and paella are anything to go by, the menu at Lady Burra is sure to satisfy! Inspired by modern Portuguese flavours, fresh, seasonal produce and the infusion of beer, this is one not to be missed.
Lady Burra Brewhouse has had prime position in Topham Mall for three years now, won several awards for their beer and are in the process of opening The Noble Gentleman, a wine bar celebrating South Australian wines and winemakers! Frequency, a unique coffee shop concept located on the corner of Currie Street and Topham Mall and lastly Two Suns, a rooftop bar to be launched later in the year!
Certainly exciting times for Topham Mall and Lady Burra this year!
