Froth and Fodder Cafe

Froth and Fodder Cafe is a prized find.

It’s been here for some time, but if you’re not in the know, it’s tricky to find, tucked away behind Kmart Kurralta Park just off Anzac Highway.

Forth and Fodder offers a venue that is not over crowded and noisy, it features a simple menu and its staff are very friendly.

It’s a boutique cafe which serves breakfast and lunch with real authentic food such as Vegie Patch Breakfast with poached eggs, sour dough, mushrooms, zucchinis and capsicum or for lunch try the Fodder Burger with Beef patty, melted cheddar, caramelised onion, lettuce, aioli on a sour dough roll.

Pomegranate Cottage & The Big Rocking Horse

Looking for a country outing without the long travel? Then we highly recommend heading to Gumeracha and Birdwood in the glorious Adelaide Hills.

Only a 40 minute drive East of Adelaide, Gumeracha is home to The Big Rocking Horse and the Toy Factory which share the same site. And for an added bonus, there is a Wildlife Park, where you can feed the animals and birds. It is such a beautiful and unique setting, with native flora and fauna.

Looking for a healthy option for lunch, then we recommend heading to Birdwood to eat at the Pomegranate Cottage.

Ikonic Kitchen

enw7i69Ap0
I want to share a little gem with you. It’s a small and intimate venue amongst the popular Henley Beach Road strip in Torrensville. It’s charm is not only its simple Greek food but also its décor.

It’s called, Ikonic Kitchen.

The decor reminds me of looking at my parents old photos from the 70s. From the dining areas to the interior decorating, everything reminded me of those photos. It’s a classic décor that makes you feel how your parents used to socialise with their family and friends.

Ikonic Kitchen serves authentic Greek food and even though there was some good choices on the menu, I stuck to just the Open Yiros because I was craving a Yiros!

The venue provides Spit menu on Sundays.

So whether your looking for a quick lunch time bite, or a family gathering, try this little gem out.

Antica Pizzeria

We ventured out for a birthday at the newly opened pizzeria on King William Road in Hyde Park called Antica Pizzeria.

This new pizzeria opened their doors for the first time just after Christmas, so it had only been operating for a week.

This venue is set amongst the bubbling King William Road strip amongst boutique fashion outlets.

The interior has been worked with some of the existing elements of the building to emphasise the building’s quirks rather than trying to disguise them.

We came with a big group of 16 people, which managed to just fit into the venue. The staff were very welcoming on arrival. We were told that we could each order at the counter and pay separately and that the meals would come out at the same time once everyone had ordered. This was much appreciated by all, as usually with a large group it can cause issues with paying one bill at the end. I do not think this is normal practise for the business, it was a once off due to the large group.

This venue is all about its wood-fired oven where most of their meals are cooked.

There are a range of traditional pizzas along with modern twists to choose from. I had the Saliccese (pork sausage) with a bianco (white) base with caramelised onions (no picture taken). When pizzas are made the traditional way, you usually don’t get a balance of toppings and this can affect the flavour. Unfortunately, this happened to me, as there were not enough caramelised onions to balance the flavours. But that’s the hit and miss of wood-oven pizzas. Though despite this, Bianca’s Vegetarian pizza was just perfect.

Hands down, this pizzeria has the best dessert pizza I have ever tasted, with the Calzone Nutella. The folded pizza was filled with Nutella and drizzled on top with Nutella also, and served with icecream.

If you are thinking about just a coffee and dessert, then look no further than the Calzone Nutella!

The atmosphere of this venue was vibrant and the fit out was exceptional that this is a place that you will regularly visit and enjoy.

Enzo’s Ristorante

Recently we went to Enzo’s Ristorante on Port Road Hindmarsh ( near the Entertainment Centre). If you are looking for a fancy place to take your date or even to POP the question, this is the place to do it! The waiters are very professional and know how to treat you well and the food, well … my god!

logo_design_adelaide_enzos

We went with a large group for a Christmas catch up, we were put into a private room and which made it feel extra glamorous. It is very rare that you have private rooms for dinner.

It was a Tuesday night and the restaurant was packed. You would have thought it was a Friday or Saturday night, and the place had a great vibe!

Sorry guys, I completely forgot to take photos of the meals; i was too busy enjoying the meal. There were certainly no complaints from anyone about the food. Expect to pay that little bit extra for your meals but it is well worth it. .

For our meals we shared antipasto platters with an assortment of smallgoods, cheeses, olives, pickled vegetable and fritata with bread. For main, most got a pasta dish. I ordered the Fettuccine alla moda dell’Umbria (Enzo’s fresh fettuccine, with soppressa (Italian sausage), local and imported mushrooms, Italian truffle paste and cream) and my husband ordered the Spaghetti al sapore di mare (with fresh local seafood, light fresh tomato, olive oil and garlic).

Being a large group meant we did wait a little for our main meals. So, if you go with a large group prepare to wait a little, Especially if they are busy. Honestly, it was totally worth the wait! We were full from the antipasto and it gave us more time to socialise with our friends between courses.

Of course, we had to have dessert ! We were so full but we couldn’t resist. Dimitri and I shared I forgot the proper name of the dessert but it was like a chocolate version of a panacotta. It was delicious and sharing the serve was enough to finish the great evening we had there.
