Earlier this year Caffe Paparazzi launched a clean eating menu in collaboration with Dr. Andrea Robertson from The Nutrition Detective Solution in a bid to expand their menu providing more options for healthy eating and also cater for allergies and intolerances. Mirella and team Paparazzi have taken another step towards providing healthy options for dining out and quick takeaway by bringing Leah Itsines on board. Leah is a personal trainer with incredible passion for food which led her to start developing recipes for healthy eating. We were invited to attend the menu launch where all the dishes were beautifully set out for us to admire as cocktail portions came out from the kitchen for our sampling pleasure.

I was first introduced to Munooshi on East Terrace on the Feast on Foot Tour run by the very knowledgeable, passionate and lovely Caitlin. Let's just say we loved it so much we have been fans ever since. Since we both don't work in the city and I no longer have Saturdays available, we grab every rare chance we have to dine at city lunch time establishments.

Lady Burra Brewhouse launched their new menu and had invited me along to sample their extensive range of beers brewed in-house as well as some Portuguese style food. Despite my never ending quest for craft beers, this was my first visit to the Topham Mall establishment that opened just earlier this year.

Last month, the sought after Sean's Kitchen had its first birthday and I was lucky enough to celebrate with them. One nice touch to the atmosphere of such an occasion was gold and silver balloons in various places around the restaurant giving an already amazing décor an extra spec of fun. Lovely surprise for diners coming in today.

If you can't spot the place, spot the line. There's always a line waiting to get into this lovely late night dessert place sitting just across Capri Theatre on Goodwood Road. I have been here that many times over the years that I thought I had already done a write up. The doors open at 8pm (7.30pm on Sunday) and almost instantly Eggless Dessert Cafe is packed. You write your name on the list and sit along the path outside.

While up at Hahndorf, the German town of Adelaide, I was after a sehr gut beer and was recommended one of these. Oettinger is a beer that is rarely found on tap in Germany and mostly sold in bottles in German supermarkets. This being the case, don’t let it fool you as it is quite a nice drop. The beer is brewed in accordance to the Reinheitsgebot which is the German purity law of 1516, one of the oldest food standards which is maintained until today.

Adelaide's small bar scene is better than its ever been with fantastic bars popping up everywhere in the city. Now we have a relaxed suburban bar to add the to list for those after work drinks and weekend chill outs - Nook Nosh. We were invited to the launch of their courtyard area and here's what we thought of the place.

Beerenberg is undoubtedly one of my favourite South Australian producers, the number of Beerenberg products we have from jams to dressings to sauces always make the meals extra special. Strawberry season is on and the strawberry patch is open again! It brought back memories of January this year when we went strawberry picking at Beerenberg Farm. For the first time ever in my life and in my 10 years living in Adelaide I set foot on this iconic place.

This whopper of a stout stomps in at 5.4% alcohol and is classed as a dessert stout. I first had this at Burger Republic and was very keen to try after seeing it posted on social media. The power of suggestion! My first reaction was thinking “Wow! This tastes like a Golden Gay Time!!” The penny dropped and I realized why it was called Golden Stout Time…..

Last week we were invited to the launch of 2 KW Bar & Restaurant's new season cocktail launch. The layout for the bar is very well thought out playing on the fact it is a rooftop bar and has some of the best views of Adelaide. The outdoor views are amazing but you can also keep sheltered in the indoor section with a nice inviting décor surrounded by windows all around so you’re not missing out on those views!
