The Spot on Melbourne

A cousin of mine pointed me to The Spot on Melbourne, asking for my thoughts on their soup as we had similar tastes and he claimed that this cafe had a pretty decent Pho on offer. He did, however, warn me beforehand that unlike the usual authentic-style huge portions at Vietnamese restaurants, TSoM served western-styled […]

Shiki

Visited Shiki for my mother’s birthday. We all went with the Keyaki set, which was 8 courses. It is teppanyaki-style with about 8 seats per teppanyaki table and 1 chef per table.. Below are the few photogenic courses. The sashimi was generously portioned, as you can see how thick the slices are. The tuna and […]

Mister Sunshine’s

Happened to look this place up as I was visiting the IceArena nearby. Ratings were good and ambience looked super homey. They even had blankets stored in a shelf although I didn’t see anyone using them (then again, I was seated indoors both times I visited). On the left was the Sauteed Field Mushrooms and […]

Eggless

A popular dessert-stop in Adelaide, I have visited Eggless twice now with a friend who is a big fan. They apparently update their menus every month or so, which is great in giving people a reason to keep coming back. Sometimes, they also have special items on the menu that only last for a week […]

A Mother’s Milk

Came here for a simple brunch and was very pleased and satisfied with the meal. I decided to go with my usual avacado and egg staple, which was generous in it’s serving of avacado and just the right amount for me. My friend advised that their baked eggs were delicious and that she always came […]

La Lorientaise Crêperie

A friend introduced me to this homey crepe shop, commenting that her mother loves the crepes here and often takes the opportunity to make use of her French as all the employees are French. Everything on the menu is, obviously, crepes. From savoury to sweet, they have a large variety of simple dishes for everyone. […]

Grimaldi’s

Usually visited by older patrons, I have only actually dined at Grimaldi’s once in the many years I’ve been in Adelaide. Grimaldi’s is my must-have stop for it’s “Legendary Tiramisu” – aptly named on it’s menu. The food was still delicious and the portions were just right. I had the salmon (below) and it was […]

Angas Plains Wines

Recently, I tagged along with my father and his friends to a winery about 20mins flight from Aldinga. The atmosphere of the winery was very peaceful and calm – not surprising with how far out it is. The weather that day was really perfect so we also enjoyed a leisurely stroll around the winery after […]

Lake Breeze Winery

Visited this lovely restaurant with my parents and their friends. It is located quite far from Adelaide and we had the opportunity to fly there for a relaxing lunch overlooking the winery itself. Probably because of it’s location, I doubt any day (aside from holidays or special occasions) would find this restaurant particularly busy, which […]

Vietnam Restaurant

This restaurant is a must-visit for me every time I find myself back in Adelaide. It has been going strong for many, many years and is still fully packed even now! We almost always order the same few dishes everytime (they are just too good) which you can see from these pictures! Also their coconut […]
