Rose Garden Restaurant

Rose Garden Restaurant

One night we were strolling down Churchill Road in Prospect and entered into a Thai Restaurant called Rose Garden.  A narrow front entrance led us into a bigger area.  There is nothing special about the decor, we were there for the food.  There was certainly a decent range of Thai food on the menu and the prices are acceptable.

Seoul Restaurant

Seoul Restaurant

Hot pot dishes are popular in Korean cuisine, and it is perfect to have on a cold night like tonight.  We selected the octopus hot pot.  It is a spicy hot pot which consists of bulgogi beef and fresh octopus.  This is cooked at the table at your leisure.  Imagine beef cooked in a sesame soy sauce marinade, fresh octopus soaked in a rich spicy broth together with vegetables.

Hanuman has hit Adelaide, right underneath Chiefley Hotel on South Terrace.  It first opened up in Darwin, then Alice Springs and now right on our door step.  It is a combination of Thai, Indian and Nonya cuisines.  They have a big emphasis on using local and seasonal produce with the freshest ingredients and that is their key to success.

Settlers Gin Range & The Collins Bar Spritz Cocktail Collection Launch

I was at the launch of Settlers Gin range at The Collins bar in the Hilton hotel a couple of days ago.  I was not very fond of gin before, but I think after that night I am proud to say I have become a Gin fan.  The new Spritz Cocktail menu was featuring the Settlers Gin Collection at the bar.  On the night, we tasted some of the finest local gin on offer.

Saz贸n Espresso

Saz贸n Espresso - there are currently two stores in Adelaide, one in the CBD and one in Mt Barker up in the Adelaide Hills.  We made a visit to the one in Mt Barker on the weekend.  Even on an early Sunday morning, the cafe was packed to the max.  If you don't want to avoid any disappointments then I suggest making a reservation.

Clich茅 - Menu Launch

Clich茅 - Menu Launch

Cliche is known for their French cuisine, but about a month ago a few Vietnamese inspired dishes have been incorporated into their menu and we were lucky to sample these free of charge.  I have been to Cliche on multiple occasions, and what is really amazing when you enter upon the restaurant is their art gallery.  All local artists and the paintings all have one thing in common - a French theme.

The Seasonal Garden Caf茅

The Seasonal Garden Caf茅

You cannot come to Hahndorf without making a stop at this cafe - The Seasonal Garden Cafe.  It is located on the buzzing Main Street of Hahndorf.  The cafe's frontage is lined with freshly grown vegetables.  There were a few small tables and chairs outside.  We stepped inside and immediately we felt like we were in a country house.  There were wooden tables and chairs with a lot of decorations.  It looked like a mini library where you could sit comfortably for hours reading your favourite books.
