“In Adelaide – A special Meal”


Adelaide has a fantastic food culture; we have the freshest produce on our doorstop and wide range of styles to choose from. Here we punch above our weight with the food and talent available to Adelaide. The next few posts in the “In Adelaide” series will talk about where to eat in Adelaide, covering cheap eats, late night eats and much more.

We’ll start with the places you go when you want a special meal:

Bistro Dom: This narrow restaurant serves modern French, with an excellent and extensive wine list Bistro Dom featuring both Australian and imported wines.

24 Waymouth St, Adelaide

Auge: Serving Italian food, Auge is at the forefront of the restaurant scene in Adelaide. They have won Best Italian SA 8 times, Best Italian Australian twice and Restaurant of the year SA three times over the past 8 years.  22 Grote St, Adelaide

Celsius: New to the Adelaide scene, Celsius serves modern cuisine with a twist. With a chef that has worked at Noma in Copenhagen Celsius provides something different and new to what you’d normally find.  5 – 97 Gouger St, Adelaide

Vincenzos Cucina Vera: Just outside the city, beyond the green belt of the Parklands, this gem of an Italian has been named as one of the top 50 restaurants in the country.  77 Unley Rd, Parkside

The Manse: This one is an Adelaide institution. First established as Gray’s fish manse in 1978, Le Manse won too many awards in 2010 to effectively list here, safe to say the food is excellent. 147 Tynte St, North Adelaide

Sostas Argentinian Kitchen: This is the place to go if you want steak; the meat eaters will be very happy here and the non meat eaters are also provided for. Hot tip – don’t bother with the sauces just go for the amazing chimmi churri sauce. 291 Rundle St,  Adelaide

Matsuri: If you’re after something lighter, try Matsuri. Traditional Japanese done very well, this restaurant has been serving Adelaide for 25 years.  167 Gouger St, Adelaide

Mapo: Another Asian option, Chef Chung Jae Lee serves up modern Korean with a twist. The coffee infused ribs melt off the bone and traditional Korean dullsot bibimbap, definitely the place to go if you want to try modern asian.

Others to note include: Assagio, Mantra, Ambrosini’s Rigoni’s, the Magill Estate,  Chianto Classico and Georges on Waymouth.

In next week’s post we’ll explore where to go for a late night feed in Adelaide.
