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…

Fancy Burger – Adelaide

I had read an article in the paper about the new Fancy Burger opening in town a few weeks ago but they never gave the actual address. The store is right at the end of Synagogue Place with a small square sign indicating where it is. Perhaps a sign out on Rundle Street wouldn’t go…

Haigh’s Chocolates – Rundle Mall

Haigh’s is simply chocolate heaven. Just about anything with chocolate in it tastes great, but Haigh’s Chocolates are somewhat better. Not the best on a world scale, but definitely the best in Adelaide. The quality of the chocolate here is right up there, and the texture is better than all the local competitors. You feel like…

Cafe Luna Rosso

The literal translation for Luna Rosso is Red Moon. Located on the busy cafe precinct of King William Road, Cafe Luna Rosso offers your traditional Italian fare. The decor is modern but basic, and the service is OK. On this particular occasion, I ordered the Calzone Rustico. The meal came out after a 20 minute…

Lucia’s

Apparently Lucia’s is an Adelaide institution. Located in the Central Markets, this place has been around for over half a century. I’ve seen this place packed every time I’ve walked past, so it’s obvious that they’re doing something right. The decor probably hasn’t changed since it first opened, and the atmosphere is relaxed. The staff…

Maki Maki

I didn’t know this place existed until a friend suggested we go there for lunch. Located within Gawler Arcade this store offers your traditional Japanese fare. There weren’t too many customers at the time of visiting possibly due to the number of sushi stores around Adelaide and the fact that not too many people know…

Good Life Pizza – Adelaide

Good Life pizza’s are good because they’re organic and the ingredients they use are locally sourced! The Hutt Street store is located in a blue stone cottage in the busy cafe precinct. The inside dining area is a bit small and is rustically decorated. The outdoor dining area is not bad either, particularly on a…

Aroma Cafe – North Tce

When I catch up with friends during the week, they have coffee and I have dessert. I’ve been to Aroma a fair few times and on this particular occasion, I went for the Chocolate Muffin. The muffin was huge and freshly baked. The choc chips in the chocolate muffin only made the experience more tantalizing….

Milano Cucina

Milano Cucina is located down at the quieter end of Hutt Street inside the Channel 10 building. The décor is contemporary with your standard commercial fittings. The menu is inspired by the northern Italian region however there is an Australian influence within. Tonight, we ordered the Margherita Pizza. The dish was ready 15 minutes after…
