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

Devon Cafe only opened last year but they’re already a huge hit, constantly drawing in long lines during peak weekend lunch times.

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.
