Wakkoqu, Kobe

I bet you’ve all heard the rumours about Kobe beef – how the cows are massaged and are given beer to drink. Strict guidelines are present to be classified as Kobe beef. The cow has to have a pure Tajima-gyu breed lineage as well as being born and rai ...

Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum and Park

Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum and Park

You see it in photos and textbooks but it gaws at you when the real thing is right in front of your face. The first thing we saw was the A-bomb Dome which was the only building to survive the blast near the hypocenter of the atomic bomb. A-bomb Dom ...

Abbots and Kinney, Adelaide | I Only Eat Desserts – Adelaide Food Blog

Many many years ago before this blog (think around 5 to 6 years), I was hunting for macarons down on Gilles St Markets. C was tagging along for the ride and got an awful coffee from a place. When we arrived at From Scratch Patisserie, the state of th ...

Bar 9, Parkside | I Only Eat Desserts – Adelaide Food Blog

As each week begins I start planning what to eat on the weekend, looking forward to whatever food adventure lies ahead and reading blogs and menus to help prepare for the inevitable decision of choosing only 1 single dish. Sometimes the excitement is ...

Tsujiri, Kyoto

Tsujiri, Kyoto

When I was in Japan 3 years ago I would pass Tsujiri so often and it wasn’t until a Japanese girl said it is one of her favourite shops that I started taking notice. Everytime I passed it there would be lines from the top of the stairs all the way to ...

Modinetti, Torrensville | I Only Eat Desserts – Adelaide Food Blog

Modinetti, Torrensville | I Only Eat Desserts – Adelaide Food Blog

I am sadly a creature of habit – C and my Saturday brunches are either at Modinetti for their baked eggs or to Boulangerie 113 for croissants. We are boring people. It doesn’t make it better that during these times I will order the same thing again a ...

Modinetti, Torrensville | I Only Eat Desserts – Adelaide Food Blog

A failed attempt to head to Parwana (even if Urbanspoon and their site said they were opened) led us to wandering down Henley Beach Road in an attempt to find any kind of food like stray cats. Everything was closed on a Saturday arvo but luckily W su ...

Indian Temptations, Blair Athol

Indian Temptations, Blair Athol

Every uni student should have heard of Indian Temptations – I’ve heard of some peeps leaving a bit earlier on pubcrawls just to go eat here. Back in the day, it probably wasn’t the flashiest place but now they’ve really revamped from a small takeout ...

Candela Latin American, Goodwood

Candela Latin American, Goodwood

I’ve been meaning to try Candela Latin American but everytime C and I plan to go we realise they aren’t opened Saturday lunch. Finally on a Friday night we made it to this cute little Latin American joint down Goodwood – I really love finding these h ...

East End Yiros, Adelaide

East End Yiros, Adelaide

It’s taken me a very long time to write a review on East End Yiros (ahem 4 years) but I absolutely love this place. C used to live right across the road from here and we would buy a yiros every so often – cheap, convenient and tasty, what’s not to lo ...

Indian Temptations, Blair Athol

Indian Temptations, Blair Athol

Indian Temptations sets a very high benchmark for all Indian restaurants in Adelaide – it is because of this place that I don’t want to try any other Indian places out of fear of disappointment. It’s that good. Where can you find something that will ...

127 Days, Croydon | I Only Eat Desserts – Adelaide Food Blog

You all must have heard of the little burger joint called 127 days down on 127 Days Road – it’s that little suburban gem that you always dream about finding. As you guys would already know I have a horrible track record on burger places and usually a ...

Boulangerie 113, Goodwood

Boulangerie 113, Goodwood

I’ve found another place guys. Probably as bad as my BTS obsession but it comes in the form of Boulangerie 113 – a French inspired bakery that’s left me returning 3 consecutive weekends in a row to shove a croissant into my mouth. Chocolate and Pist ...

Nakamura Tokichi, Kyoto

Nakamura Tokichi, Kyoto

Nakamura Tokichi (中村藤吉) has been around for 150 years, well-known for not only their tea but also their desserts. I went to visit their main store on my trip to Uji (where the best quality green tea in Japan is from). This was our last stop in Uji wh ...

Kutchi Deli Parwana is the sister store to Parwana Afghan Restaurant down Torrensville. This hole in the wall place is located down Ebenezer Place and has one of the most beautiful interiors I’ve seen in Adelaide. I’ve been a number of times and have ...

Le Souk, Adelaide

Le Souk, Adelaide

I love a friend that takes me to a place I’ve never heard of – these guys are the keepers ;) G brought us to Le Souk, an Algerian store in the heart of the Adelaide Central Markets. Seated on a bar stool the friendly owner came offering some dates an ...

Mister Sunshine's, Thebarton

Mister Sunshine's, Thebarton

Surrounded by an industrial area you’ll find Mister Sunshine’s – you don’t have to look too hard as you’ll see it filled out with people sitting outside even in winter. Sorry C but I forced him to give up our sunny table for one in the shade – all in ...

Pepper Lunch, Adelaide

Pepper Lunch, Adelaide

What is up with all these franchises popping up in Adelaide? I’m not really complaining as I love Pepper Lunch – I’ve missed this since my last time eating it in Japan :) Adelaide is ready for this! A lovely heap of spicy black peppered rice, topped ...

Sit Lo, Adelaide | I Only Eat Desserts – Adelaide Food Blog

Sit Lo was one of the places that I had heard of but it wasn’t really on my radar until I got a tip that the baos were really good. No more words were needed as this quickly became on my to eat list :) I was initially surprised at how small these we ...

Delicatessen Kitchen & Bar, Adelaide

Delicatessen Kitchen & Bar, Adelaide

Being friends with a foodie or a food blogger is not the easiest thing in the world. We do like to take photos of our dishes as well as yours before eating. D has found a strategy to avoid this: if he orders the exact same dish as me then I won’t tak ...
