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.

Tomahawk Steak Challenge at The Oaks Hotel, Neutral Bay

The Oaks Hotel is a favourite among locals, offering a true steakhouse experience with an in house butcher, a huge range of steak cuts and even the option to master your own meal at the cook-your-own steak station. They’ve also recently added the Tomahawk Steak to the menu, which is one of the largest steak cuts (averaging 1.8kg per serving). I may have lost my mind today as I decided to step up to the challenge of eating it.
