Press Food and Wine, Adelaide

On our last night in our recent trip to Adelaide, we thought we’d visit one of the finer restaurants in town and were recommended Press Food and Wine. As we walked there, the surrounding area of the CBD was highly reminiscent of Melbourne – many alleyways with artwork on the walls with hidden bars and trendy looking restaurants, except with less crowds and lines. Nevertheless, on a Wednesday night Press Food and Wine’s upstairs dining room was fully booked, but thankfully they leave the ground floor for walk-ins.

Parwana Afghan Restaurant, Adelaide

I recently had a short trip to Adelaide for a couple of days and saw that Parwana restaurant was a local’s favourite. It intrigued me as I’ve never had Afghan food before nor seen those restaurants in Sydney before, so I definitely wanted to give it a go to try something new.

Devon Cafe, Surry Hills

Gowings Bar & Grill, Sydney CBD

It’s been a while since we last visited Gowings Bar & Grill, and since then they’ve been awarded a hat by the 2014 SMH Good Food Guide – not bad within their first year of business. Situated smack bang in the middle of the city, Gowings features dark and sleek interiors, exuding a cool vibe transporting me to Melbourne, or even the New York restaurant scene. It’s pretty busy for a Saturday night but we’re seated promptly with stunning views overlooking QVB and the bustling George Street.

Fuku Restaurant, World Square

Fuku is a modern Japanese restaurant situated on the upper restaurant level of World Square, right opposite Din Tai Fung. We’re visiting on a Friday night and Din Tai Fung has the usual longest lines; Fuku is moderately busy but we’re not stuck out waiting in the cold thankfully, so it’s a great option if the Din Tai Fung wait gets your stomach growling. The menu has a nice variety of Japanese classics which have been re-done with contemporary cooking techniques and flavours and there’s also a large menu of Japanese sake and wines, although tonight we just opt for food.
