Ryo's Noodles, Adelaide

Ryo's Noodles, Adelaide

“GO BACK TO YOUR COUNTRY” A random screams as C and I walk down Victoria Square. It isn’t a shock that this has happened and it’s not like it’s the first time. From the random “nihao” and “konnichiwa” to people shouting “it’s an Asian invasion.” How ...

The Loose Caboose, Hindmarsh

The Loose Caboose, Hindmarsh

Hello all, I’m finally back in the sweating heat of Adelaide! What better way to celebrate with brunch in 36 degree weather with my good friend L. To be very honest I am quite out of the loop with food places in Adelaide, luckily L really wanted to t ...

Nico Cafe, Adelaide

Nico Cafe, Adelaide

When I lived in Japan, if you didn’t feel like Japanese the only other food option was a Japanese Italian fusion. These dishes destroy Italian food as the sauces are way too sweet. This is why I’m pretty sceptical of Japanese fusions but the cute lit ...

Fork On The Road, Adelaide

Fork On The Road, Adelaide

Man, Adelaide is looking pretty awesome these days with our new Vic Square, MCG-like Adelaide Oval and the revamping of Rundle Mall. Except for that weird spaceship ad trying to promote Adelaide – a nice video but it couldn’t stop the wtf thoughts su ...

Benny's American Take Away, Blackwood

Benny’s has 3 joints (Blackwood, Morphet Vale and Woodville) since starting out in 2013 – that’s a mighty impressive job. Lucky for you guys with the Woodville store now opened you don’t have to drive down South to get your fix. C and I had a date ni ...

Tasca Viva Restaurant Tapas Bar, Glenelg

Tasca Viva Restaurant Tapas Bar, Glenelg

I’m a bit shocked at people who constantly use their phone over a meal – okay the occasional message, a call or when you are trying to find something to show your friend is alright. But when you’re the person that sits there blankly whilst your frien ...

River Cafe, Adelaide

River Cafe, Adelaide

As the year draws closer to June and to the end of my entertainment card, a silent scream escapes from the cheap, bargain hunting Asian inside me. My entertainment card was definitely in need of another workout, this time at the River Café. Papparde ...

Sah Modern Mediterranean, North Adelaide

Sah Modern Mediterranean, North Adelaide

Many failed attempts at eating tapas in Adelaide which makes me a sad panda because it is a cuisine I want to love. I’ve heard a lot of good things about Sah from a few friends so it’s time to hop onto it. Too lazy to choose we opted for the tasting ...

[Giveaway] Lindt Chocolate + Jamaica Blue Desserts *WINNERS ANNOUNCED*

Jamaica Blue has teamed up with Lindt chocolate to create 3 decadent desserts. In Adelaide there are only two Jamanica Blue stores (Westlakes and Noarlunga) but I spy with my little eye a new store in Rundle Mall to open soon. I went to the Westlakes ...

The Loose Caboose, Hindmarsh

I’m not the biggest fan of brunch because I feel it to be overpriced for something that I could make at home. Of course it’ll be a crappy, inferior job but at least it doesn’t cost me $20 for some scrambled eggs. On the other hand when brunch is done ...

Shiki, Adelaide

Shiki, Adelaide

For our 6 year anniversary C and I found ourselves at Shiki – a Japanese teppanyaki in the Intercontinental Hotel. Walking in you see tables and tables surrounding teppanyakis (iron griddle). I’ve only had teppanyaki once and that was eating Kobe bee ...

InterContinental Adelaide High Coffee | I Only Eat Desserts

Update – WTF is going on?

Update – WTF is going on?

Hi guys so this post is just an update about what is happening with the blog and to keep you all in the loop. I’ve received a couple of alarming messages from my friends on fb about what’s happening to me, whether I’m moving away and what’s going on ...

Hardware Societe

Hardware Societe

As luck would have it Hardware Societe reopened a few days before our trip to Melbourne after being burnt down last year – the poor guys :( Don’t think the fire kept the people at bay for long where it was already pumping on Friday 10:30am. I’ve neve ...

Big Table, Adelaide

Big Table, Adelaide

I know I know it is the greatest shame of all. Growing up in Adelaide I don’t really venture or eat at the Central Markets. Blasphemy. Deciding I needed to start making a change I hawk eyed my way onto a seat at the ever busy Big Table ;) The specia ...
