Greek cuisine is essentially Mediterranean cuisine which is known to be one of the healthiest diet in the world! Food in Santorini is no different. Their meals have in abundance of olive oil, herbs, lemon juice, vegetables, fish, wines and various meats. In this article I will recommend some food in Santorini that can’t be missed!
Ramen & Izakaya Himeji is opened by the same owners as Genki Japanese restaurant, the only restaurant that makes half decent ramen in Adelaide, so we had really high expectations for it. Almost as soon as Ramen & Izakaya Himeji was open for business, we made a reservation and we popped in for lunch.
Mexican Society of Chinatown is a new establishment opened by the same owners of Hispanic Mechanic. It is meant to be a Mexican & Chinese fusion restaurant, which is an interesting concept.
En Japanese Bar in Goodwood is quite a unique one for Adelaide. The restaurant is set out like a traditional Japanese bar, the decorations were mainly wooden and area was slightly dim. There were many selections of Japanese alcohol available and on display behind the bar. The majority of the servers and chefs were Japanese and speaking in Japanese and this sets the mood as a traditional bar well.
Villa 77 is a new Spanish Tapas store newly opened on Unley road. It has a cute Spanish villa style front yard that is decorated like a Spanish country bar. The indoor looks a bit more modern but the Spanish theme still runs through the whole restaurant. When we walked through the front yard, there were a table full of customers enjoying themselves with sangrias in their hands.
On our lazy Sunday we wanted to try out a Handorf restaurant called Bistro 25. To avoid the crazy Sunday crowd at Handorf we decided to go have dinner at night. Handorf isn’t far from the city being only around 20 min drive up the freeway. We took a nice stroll around the old German town and enjoyed some of the remaining Christmas lights before we arrived at our dinner place. Bistro 25. The bistro is quite small with a handful of tables. The walls of this restaurant are always filled with painted pictures of local artist. Most of them are on sale and the art work on display changes regularly.
British India is located around the corner on the end of Gouger Street in China Town. It is right at the end of the row of all other busy restaurants. The outside of the restaurant has a plain old restaurant appearance, nothing spectacular. The inside of the restaurant feels like a time warp to a place where wealthy British Indian merchant would dine. The restaurant was dim and the floor, walls, chair and table is made of dark posh wood. One of the walls hung a painting of the queen.
For dinner tonight we visited a new Tapas bar on Peel Street which is between Hindley Street and Currie Street. I was quite surprised how many new bars and restaurants are popping up in little streets like these in Adelaide. The place looks like a typical bar but the place was full of young professionals. The food was as close to traditional Spanish Tapas as we can get in Adelaide. Out of all the Tapas place I have tried in Adelaide this was the best. Definitely would be back again and definitely would recommend this place.
Chef Dong, a new Chinese restaurant that is a little misunderstood by the public. It is clean modern style restaurant different to the previous restaurant known as Imperial Palace which was closed down due to breaching state’s food standard code. Decorations and the cutleries used were modern and clean. Food is more lightly flavoured. Deserves to be tried by more people. Currently a quite place to have nice food.
Crane, a one stop restaurant for Japanese food down at the bay, Glenelg. It has sushi train, sit down area and Teppanyaki tables. I liked the set out of the shop and think it’s quite a novelty especially for a place like Glenelg. We had a table dinner this time. We felt that the food is a little westernized and I didn’t enjoy the sushi as much as other Japanese Restaurants. Maybe we will be back to try out their Teppanyaki.
