Adelaide Eats: Hahndorf Inn Hotel

Hahndorf is a German town in Adelaide which is a must-go for all tourists. I think I must have been here at least 10 times already in the last 3 years. Be it on the way to Mount Lofty, to Beerenberg Farm for strawberry picking or just to enjoy some German beer, I think every Adelaidean has definitely visited Hahndorf.

And since it is a restaurant in a German town, Hahndorf Inn Hotel sells many different types of beer with varying flavours and bitterness (Im not the best judge since all beers taste bitter to me anyway) But the friends were all raving over their mug, saying it was indeed different from the normal beer and very refreshing as well! So I suppose the beers are worth a try especially if you are a beer fan…

A Jug of Hofbräu Original (lager)
Refreshing, bitter flavour and alcoholic content of around 5.1% volume have made it famous worldwide. A Munich beer with character.

Stuttgart Platter (Serves 2) $66.00
400gm rump steak, 500gm pork ribs, 6 crispy chicken wings, served with Rhine potato, sauerkraut and homemade bbq sauce

Trio of Wursts $29.90
Bockwurst, Bratwurst and Weisswurst with traditional German potato salad, sauerkraut, and a fresh German pretzel

Seasonal Vegetables

Adelaide Eats: Mandoo Korean Dumplings Again

So it was back to Mandoo Korean Dumplings because the little boy wanted Asian food and he wanted to drink soup so we came here! :)

Free sides. Have I mentioned that this is the ONLY place where I eat kimchi at? At everywhere else, I just pass it on..the seaweed was pretty awesome too.. :D

Fried Vegetarian Dumplings $11.99

Hot Pot for 2-3 $40– Contains 4 types of dumplings (chicken, pork, vegetarian, kimchi), tofu, beef, mushrooms, glass noodles, udon, rice cake and seasonal vegetables

Is it just me or have prices gone up slightly since I last came here in May? seems a little pricer this time. Anyhow, I love love love the kimchi dumplings here (coming from someone who does NOT eat kimchi, I think that says a lot) and the hot pot is a must try. It’s like a pot of overflowing goodness and the beef was surprisingly tender too!

Adelaide Eats: An Afternoon At The Aviary

I really really like The Aviary. It is such a pretty place but unfortunately the only time that they are open in the day is Sunday arvo (on all other days, they are only open from 8pm onwards). So 3 of us took a bus to Norwood to have dessert after lunch on one Sunday afternoon. Expectedly, the whole place was filled with girls (with MP being the only boy), somehow tea and desserts are really a girl thing and boys are only there if your girlfriend drags you there (or in my case, your sister).

We had:

  • Fuji Yama Green Tea Pot $5/pot

  • Peanut Butter Disaster and Durian Ice-cream Sundae topped with almond & hazelnut praline $9.50

  • Honeycomb Macaron Flower Pot in a pot of Chocolate Mud Cake and Chocolate Mousse $10.50

Adelaide Eats: Scoozi Caffe Bar

So Ive eaten at Scoozi more than a thousand times for mostly dinners and suppers because 1) they are open to really late 2) they have the most amazing cakes at only $4.50 each 3) their pizzas are yummy 4) it’s conveniently less than a 5 min walk away from home. And I think I have given enough reasons. But anyway, Scoozi isnt exactly the first place you would think of having brekkie at yet they do serve up a pretty decent meal and I was pleasantly surprised.

Muesli with Strawberries and Bananas $6

Eggs Benedict $11.50– poached eggs with Virginian ham, sauteed spinach, mushrooms, topped with hollandaise sauce served on toasted muffins

Oven Baked Omelette $9.50– ham and cheese served with toast

And somehow seeing a well done poached egg always makes my morning!
