Okay, so I’ve been super slack with my writing of late so you don’t have to scroll too far back on my blog to find an article I wrote about my good friends Angus & Angus and their food truck, Low & Slow American BBQ.
Sure… I might be slightly biased here, but the boys get are getting a second feature.
It was mere months ago that we started hearing whispers of the van having a hiatus from the streets and the dream of a bricks and mortar establishment coming to fruition, and as of a week ago, it happened.
And what a week it’s been! From day one, the Port Adelaide based BBQ restaurant has received an overwhelming response. Selling out every night to the point of having to close on Sunday in order to restock, re-smoke and recover.

You’ve just knocked off work or you’re just finishing up dinner, what’s next? When you’re looking for a night out in Adelaide, the conversation of east end versus west end will inevitably pop up at some point. Do you stay one end of town? Or migrate to the other.

Head west along Gouger street, get to Krispy Kreme and keep walking (no seriously, keep walking). In a few steps you’ll come across a set of red curtains billowing out from a doorway onto the street. Whatever is hiding behind you may be wondering? Ah, the mystery! Oh, the intrigue!

This time of year it may be hard to draw yourself away from the Fringe related venues. However, if you’re looking for somewhere to avoid the insanity and the crowds that come with the festive season, head no further than Kenny Wang’s.

Pickles have come a long way since the days of being flung out the car window upon leaving the McDonalds drive-thru, or being one of the unloved finger sandwich options at Grandma’s afternoon tea.

Fun is the name of the game at Austin & Austin, ‘game’ being the operative word in that sentence.
Located just a stones throw from the east end and universities, Austin & Austin is one of Adelaide’s latest offerings for a daytime coffee spot and night time bar. Opening up just before Christmas, owners George and Simon (formally of The Palais at Semaphore) bring a wealth of hospitality knowledge to their new city venture.

Anyone who knows me will know about my love for the Adelaide Central Market. My parents used to take me on a regular basis since before I could walk or talk. I have fond childhood memories of the ginger beer from The Old Lolly Shop, having my face painted and scoring a balloon animal from the dude in the elephant suit (which… may I add, is still kicking around – I’m 28, I have no idea how old that suit is…)
In adulthood and being a city dweller my Market experience is now more about the produce. One of my favourite things to do in the whole wide world is to grab my wheelie trolley, pop in my headphones and wander around. Up and down the aisles I go, always spending far more money than I intended.

I have a confession to make.
Look, it’s not something I’m proud of and I’m fully prepared to feel the weight of your judging eyes upon me.
It took me 6 months to try Little NNQ on Gouger Street….

Well, that weekend was exhausting. The Rolling Stones packed out Adelaide Oval for their once in a lifetime concert, Rymill Park was filled with people inducing their dairy based food comas at Cheesefest and Gotye led a stream of people on a march through the city in the name of equality.
I didn’t do any of the above.
Instead, I spent a total of 17 hours on Saturday with a bunch of girlfriends; treading the pavement, eating lots of food, drinking too much wine and showing off my favourite spots in the city.

I must admit it took me a few times saying the name of this new restaurant out loud to nail the pronunciation. But I’m glad I did because since my first dining experience at Sukhumvit Soi. 38 last week, I’ve been telling a lot of people about it.
