Vego & Love’n It

This is the second vegetarian place I’ve been to in the last 24 hours and I’m noticing a common theme. It’s like I’ve walked through a wormhole and been teleported back to the 1960’s. With mismatched furniture, picture framed mosaics, photos of Bali and Marilyn Monroe, there is no real theme to this place. The…

House Of Donkey

The House of Donkey is located on the less popular western side of the city, in a double storey cream coloured townhouse. While everything looks normal from the outside, the inside is a hippy like time warp back to the 60’s. The decor is a mismatch of furniture, flowers, bookshelves, palettes, pot plants and knick…

Dolce & Co – Burnside Village

I had known for quite a while that Dolce & Co were opening a stall inside Burnside Village. The desserts are the same as the Gilbert Street store, however, there’s a lot more seating. At the Burnside Village store, there are two counters, and the stall itself is sleek and modern. Today, I ordered the…

O Bun Chef

When a food stall only sells one thing, you can be fairly certain that it’s going to be nice. At O Bun Chef, all they sell are O Buns, which are little pastry disks with various fillings. I ordered a Custard O Bun. A nice thick subtly sweet custard wedged in between two freshly made…

Colin & Co – Rundle Place

Colin & Co are located at the Grenfell Street entrance of Rundle Place. The place is primarily a coffee shop, however they do have breakfast and lunch options, as well as a selection of sweets. The decor has a funky warehouse feel about it. The floor to ceiling windows maximise the amount of natural light,…

Taj Tandoor

I’ve been to Taj Tandoor several times over the years and I’ve never had a bad experience. After reading some negative reviews of this place, you’d think I had been dining at a different restaurant. The place itself is in a prime location on Rundle Street. The decor is slightly traditional with a few modern…

Banh Mi – Central Market

The Banh Mi store in the Central Markets is a lot flashier than other stores that sell the same product. Personally, I can’t resist a Vietnamese roll, even though the prices here are slightly higher. On this particular occasion, I ordered one of their Roast Pork Banh Mi. For $7.50, you would expect this roll…

Paddy’s Lantern

Paddy’s Lantern serves simple delicious meals using quality ingredients. The Smoked Ocean Trout that I ordered was beautifully presented and tasted simply amazing! I absolutely loved the crunchy texture from the pumpkin seeds on the bread. The horseradish cream cheese was smooth and had nice depth. The smokey flavours from the ocean trout was quite…

Atomic Burger Bar

I’ve driven past this place so many times when it used to be called something else. In recent times, it’s been given a face lift and is now known as the Atomic Burger Bar. While the signage and menus look more modern, the place itself still looks like an old fish and chip shop. I…

River Cafe – Festival of Food 2013

Having been to the fine dining restaurant upstairs a few weeks ago, I already had high expectations of this place. Located in the same building as the Red Ochre restaurant, the River Cafe also provides fantastic views of the city and the Torrens River. The setting is elegant and modern, and the service is excellent….

Cafe de Vili’s

There’s nothing like a 24 hour bakery on the outskirts of the city. With decor straight of the 80’s, this place serves everything you would find in a corner tuck shop, but on a larger scale. I’ve had the chips and gravy from here before, but this time I went for the Caramel and Banana…

Mylk Bar

Adelaide will no longer be known as the “City of Churches”, but more the “City of Bars”. Mylk bar is one of the latest bars to open up in Adelaide. Located on Flinders Street, at the Victoria Square end, most of the clientele that visit here are white collar workers. The external facade of this…
