Cafe Saba

Cafe Saba

The name Cafe Saba doesn't sound Vietnamese at all.  This cafe is located on The Parade in Norwood, but not easily seen from the front.  In fact it is hidden away at the back on the corner.  I have been here a few times now, and every time there seems to be more and more diners.  Hmm... I wonder what that says about this Cafe.

Sean's Kitchen

Sean's Kitchen

 It's Sean's Kitchen right underneath the Adelaide Skycity Casino.  You can't miss it if you come up the railway station.  I do remember this restaurant being called 'North'.  Then it closed down, and I was wondering what was going to be opened next.  I first learnt about Sean from Channel 7's TV show.  An award winning New Zealand chef whom loves to visit other countries to try out different recipes, then bring them home and show case our local produce.

Africola

I finally got to go to Africola.  This restaurant is located on East Terrace, right where the Botanic Restaurant used to be.  I admired the decorations in this restaurant.  However, it was very noisy and we literally had to yell to hear what everyone was saying.   It took a long time before someone would come and serve us, so I'm not sure if they were lacking staff on the night.

Chef Dong

Chef Dong

A new chinese restaurant has opened where Imperial Peking used to be .  It's called Chef Dong.  A completely new look together with the decor has made the restaurant look brighter and bigger.  I must say it was money well spent on the renovations, chairs, dining and lighting.  The menus were very new.  I felt like I was reading a book with a hard cover.

L'Atelier Gourmand

If you travel down Goodwood road, you must make a visit to this tiny French cafe.  In fact it's just off Gilbert Street before the Capri Theatre.  With very limited tables and chairs, I advise you to make a booking beforehand to avoid any disappointment.  You can choose to sit outside facing the road or inside.  As soon as I stepped into this rustic cafe, I thought I was in Paris again.
