Stumps Bar & Kitchen

My friend and I had just finished dinner and we were wandering aimlessly down King William Road looking for a venue that served dessert and coffee. The place also had to have a flat screen TV so that she could keep up with the football scores. She’s a huge Port Adelaide supporter and didn’t want…

The Little Hunter

The Little Hunter is a new steak and ale bar located down a small side street next to the Playford Hotel. There was a restaurant with the same name in Melbourne that shut down late last year, but I’m not sure that they’re related. As their signage suggests, steak is what they specialise in, with…

The Maylands Hotel

The Maylands Hotel is located deep within a side street in a popular outer fringe eastern suburb. I’ve actually eaten here many moons ago, and have fond memories of the experience. The place has undergone renovations since my last visit, and I must say the venue looks modern and elegant. There’s a decent selection of…

Fire On Unley

Latin American cuisine seems to be all the craze at the moment with one of the newer stores being Fire On Unley. Located on the popular Unley Road cafe precinct, this restaurant specialises in Argentinian cuisine as well as wood fired pizza. The first thing that strikes you about this place is the stylish and…

La Boca Bar and Grill

I just happened to be walking to a birthday party at The Stamford last week when I was distracted by the wonderful smells of barbecued meats coming from La Boca. In the same location that was formerly Swish, is a newly opened Argentinian restaurant that specialises in cooking meats over the asador (fire pit). The…

Pigs On Fire

Vegetarians look away! There’s a Dutch pop-up BBQ called Pigs On Fire that makes it’s appearance at the Garden of Unearthly Delights only once a year. The BBQ is something to marvelled at. It’s constructed from timber logs and ┬áiron grates built in the form of a teepee. Just about every part of the pig…

Cos Restaurant

  Set in a heritage listed building on the beautifully restored Leigh Street is Cos Restaurant. The venue is spacious and elegant, and the whole setting is full of character. The use of timber throughout simply gives this place an old world charm. The menu is simple with a selection of modern Australian, seafood and…

Hogs Breath Cafe – Adelaide

Hogs Breath is a steak franchise with stores across the country. While the menu may be the same, there are some stores that cook their meals better than others. I’ve been here on many occasions and the meals here have been average. My most recent visit to this place saw little improvement. Today, I ordered…

The Meat & Wine Co – Southbank – Melbourne

Many moons ago, my cousin introduced me to The Meat and Wine Co in Sydney. I loved it so much, we actually went there twice during my brief visit. Fast forward to now and my group of friends suggest we visit the same store at Southbank for dinner. How could I have possibly said no…

Outback Jack’s – North Adelaide

Outback Jacks is another steak franchise that has stores across the country. Located on the second floor of North Adelaide Village, I didn’t realise it was there until I really looked for it. The decor here is fairly similar to it’s other stores, with the main feature being the giant styrofoam crocodile hanging from the…
