He Sheng BBQ Restaurant

Mansfield Park is not the most desirable of suburbs, but with all the new housing redevelopments, things are looking up in the area. Among all of the houses, are a few suburban shops that can be considered hidden gems. One of them is He Sheng BBQ. They make amazing Peking Duck. The ducks are a…

As you walk in the entrance, you enter the outdoor dining area which is divided into smoking and non-smoking sections. The inside is more traditionally decorated with an old rickshaw in one corner of the room. They’re menu…

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…

Laksa House 2

After reading the positive reviews about this place, I thought I would give this place a try. Located on the western side of Flinders Street, Laksa House 2 is a small place that holds about 26 people (20 on the inside and 6 on the outside). There’s a Laksa House 1 in the Market Plaza…

Rose Garden Thai

Don’t judge a restaurant by its crappy decor. This rings very true, particularly for this place. The external appearance of this place reminds me of a run down crack house, while the internal is a bit more presentable. I would never have considered this place had I not read some positive reviews of the place….

Plant 13

Located in the outskirts of the city, Plant 13 offers American inspired modern Australian cuisine. The décor is simple yet stylish, and the atmosphere is a relaxed one, as the venue is located away from the hustle and bustle of city living. The menu here is an interesting one. Printed on a piece of paper…

Red Door Bakery – Goodwood

My friends have been raving about this place for a while and today, I decided it was time to check it out. Located near the northern end of King William Road, Red Door Bakery is one of two stores with the same name in Adelaide. At Red Door Bakery, it’s all about using fresh quality…

Earl Of Leicester

The Earl of Leicester is a nice pub on quiet suburban street in Parkside. The pub has a lot of old world charm with good use of dark wood and an exposed timber roof. This place has a reputation for serving up large schnitzels. Keen to see what all the fuss is about, I ordered…

Charminar – Plympton

Charminar is an Indian restaurant chain that consists of 7 stores across the city. After reading not so flattering reviews about this particular store location, I was a bit hesitant about coming here. Located on Anzac Highway, this store is located in a nice secluded location where there is plenty of parking on the side…

Caffe Amore

The nearest place to eat when you’re about to dance at Red Love next door? Caffe Amore. The distinct lack of customers on a Friday night was a bit of a warning sign but none the less, we were hungry. The venue is certainly spacious with plenty of seating that aren’t even close to each…

Sevenhill Hotel

As part of the Clare Valley wine tour, a group of us stopped off at the Sevenhill Hotel for lunch. After all, you can’t drink all day on an empty stomach. The venue itself is very typical of a building in a country town; the galvanised veranda and the tin roof are the standard features. The inside…
