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…

Blue Lemon

On my way to a big drinking session at the Adelaide Wine Centre, I stumble (no, I wasn’t drunk yet!) onto Blue Lemon who offer a traditional selection of baguettes. Conveniently located across the road from Adelaide University, a lot of their clientele are university students. Today, I ordered their Smoked Salmon Baguette. It was…

Burger Theory – Union St – Adelaide

Burger Theory now has their own store in the city! The 2 classic burger offerings are there, as well as 2 new ones, although one of them was a kid’s burger. There’s a new breakfast menu as well as a selection of beverages. The new staff were put to the test by dealing with real…

Hahndorf German Arms Hotel

Every time I’m up in Hahndorf, I usually eat at the Hahndorf Inn, but after my first visit to the German Arms, I was pleasantly surprised. The venue is considerably spacious, and the decor is traditional with good use of timber. Adjacent tables are a good distance apart, and the dining space over different levels…

Arriba Grill – Cumberland Park

Arriba Grill is a franchise with 5 stores around the country, 2 in Queensland and 3 here in South Australia. The Goodwood store is basic in design with the LCD screens behind the counter giving it a slight modern touch. The store itself is really tiny. I counted 14 seats at this place. This consisted…

Jenny’s Gourmet Bakery

The most reputable place to get your cronuts in Adelaide is at Jenny’s Gourmet Bakery. You have to get here quick folks.  When I got here around lunch time, there were only 3 types of cronuts left. Today, I went for the Cookies and Cream Cronut. The cost was $5, which was reasonably priced considering…

Little Miss Miami

From the same people behind Little Miss Mexico, is a brand new themed pop up bar just around the corner, called Little Miss Miami. Unlike their predecessor, this venue is indoors in a double storey building, however, the upstairs section wasn’t accessible in its first opening to the public. The decor here is aimed at…

Windy Point Restaurant – Festival of Food 2013

If I was planning on proposing to a woman, one of the locations where it would possibly happen, would be at the Windy Point Restaurant. I would book a table for two, seated by the window, overlooking the city at night. Towards the end of the dinner, I would order two glasses of champagne. While…

Le Carpe Diem

Located on Grenfell Street, at the East Terrace end, is a new French creperie, Le Carpe Diem. Their food menu is basically made up of two main items, sweet crepes and savoury galettes. For those that are not familiar, galettes are flat round crusty cakes. The decor here is traditional Parisian style. The paintings, the…

Falafel Stop

The Falafel Stop is a convenient place to “stop” after a night out of drinking on Gouger Street. Their specialty is falafels, but they also serve a range of fast food snacks such as yiros, hot dogs, hamburgers, chips and even Middle Eastern sweets. Tonight, I ordered the Chocolate Covered Lady Finger. The Lady Finger…

Assaggio Ristorante

Assaggio is my new favourite Italian restaurant in Adelaide. It’s just simply amazing! I can understand why this restaurant was voted the best Italian restaurant in 2012 and I’m mystified that I haven’t been here before. Located on King William Road, this small to medium restaurant offers your classic Italian dishes and seats around 40-50…

Steven Ter Horst Chocolatier – Unley Rd

When other stores source their products from this place, you know it’s good! Aiming for a sugar high, we ordered two desserts, a beverage and one of their hand made chocolates. For me, there were two highlights; the hot chocolate and the salted caramel tart. The hot chocolate was the best I’ve ever had. With…
