Man about town and local food blogger, Lee, the expert foodie behind Adelaide Food Central takes a trip around the bay and uncovers a shortlist of his favourite picks for breakfast, lunch & dinner.
The best thing about the bay is that there is so much choice, and the cafes here all have amazing coffee and food, whether you’re an eggs on toast kind of person or you like a sweeter start to the day, you know you’ll find it here.
This dish is the classic french toast with a twist. Using turkish bread as the base and served with fresh pear, mascarpone, crushed almonds and a honey/cinnamon syrup, the flavours of this dish dance on the tounge and makes this is a fulfilling offering that
POACHED EGG & AVOCADO STACK
This is a must for anyone who likes a caprese salad, all the staples (tomato, basil, mozzarella) with the extras (poached egg, avocado & grilled bread) that transform it from being a classic side dish into a scrumptuous breakfast choice, there wasn’t a crumb left on the plate!
SMOKE SALMON BENEDICT
The classic eggs benedict gets reworked, and I’m glad to say that it’s really delicious! The eggs were cooked perfectly and the delicate flavours of smoked salmon, poached eggs and hollandaise sauce are a match made in heaven! The best part is FEED has an all-day breakfast menu, so it’s not just a breakfast delight.
We don’t always get time to sit and relax, so eat on the go but don’t sacrifice on flavour!
LUCKY VIETNAMESE ROLL
ROAST PORK VIETNAMESE ROLL
Perfect for when you’re after a flavorsome meal on the go, I love the Vietnamese rolls from Lucky’s (available until 3pm daily). You can choose your fillings but the roast pork would have to be my favourite, tender meat and crunchy crackling, all there is to say is, yum!
If you haven’t heard of Taco Tuesdays, I’m sorry to inform you, you’ve been missing out! At $2 each on Tuesdays, you can afford to explore the range and indulge in a couple extra tacos. I can’t go past the Baja fish, 14hr beef and always a favourite, chicken chipotle.
My favourite meal of the day, you can travel the world on a plate and actually take the time to sit and appreciate your food.
With generous sizing, this is a dish meant for sharing (although you’ll want it all to yourself). Packed with flavour this eye-catching paella has chicken, chorizo, prawns, mussels, fish and calamari. I loved that the protein was cooked well, a hard task with so many different cooking times to work with and the flavours of the ocean where well infused in the dish. A satisfying and delicious meal that will certainly make your night.
