La Boca Bar and Grill – James Squire Dinner

For a very long time, pairing a drink with a meal lead to the question of what wine you were going to choose. No one had even considered beer until the last couple of years. Surprisingly enough, beer can be paired with all kinds of foods and is more “food-friendly” than wine. Winemakers don’t have…

La Boca Bar and Grill – The Lunchador

We lead such busy lives these days and this can often have a flow on affect on our health. Quite often we only have 30 minutes for lunch and this short time frame can lead to the purchase of something unhealthy. It certainly doesn’t have to be that way. La Boca Bar and Grill have…

La Boca Bar and Grill has come a long way since it first opened in 2014. The success of the Argentinian restaurant has seen a second open in Sydney with plans for another in Melbourne. While it wasn’t clear what the purpose of the event was at the beginning of the night, Adelaide Food Central…

Gaucho’s – New Menu Launch

For as long as I can remember, the name Gaucho’s is synonymous with being one of the original and best Argentinian steakhouses in Adelaide. The steaks are still outstanding, as is their patented chimichurri sauce, however, it’s not all that they do. Adelaide Food Central was invited along tonight, along with other guests, to sample…

The Jungle Restaurant

If the reviews about The Jungle are anything to go by, we were going to have a poor dining experience. With that in the back of our minds, we came here with low expectations. The Jungle specialises in Churrasco BBQ, where cuts of meat are placed on swords and then cooked over charcoal. The meat…

Hoosegow

When a friend first told me about a place called “Hoosegow”, I thought she had made a typing mistake. Literally translated, “hoosegow” means “prisoner”. If I recall my conversation with the staff member correctly, the food is so good here, you become a “prisoner” of the food. The restaurant was actually supposed to be called…

Mestizo Cocina Peruana

Mestizo is Adelaide’s first Peruvian restaurant, and its literal translation means “mixed race” which is a reflection of its rich multicultural history. Peruvian cuisine is a culmination of local practices and ingredients, with influences from it’s indigenous population, Europe (Spanish, Italian, German), Asia (China, Japan) and West Africa. When immigrants first came to Peru, they…

Veesao

The hottest food trends in Adelaide last year were dessert bars, burger joints and all things Mexican. This year, we’re seeing a lot of restaurants with Latin American influences. The Onyx Dessert Lounge (now Onnyx – note the 2 n’s) has revamped itself and introduced Brazilian food, which is a first for Adelaide. Now what’s…
