Adelaide Eats: Korea Restaurant

This was actually the very first Korean BBQ restaurant I had visited in Adelaide when Uncle Mark and Aunty Amy first brought dad, mum and I here in first year during O week! So when I was brought here this evening, I was like ‘Hey this place is super familiar! I have been here before! And so I have…LOL!’

Friday night Korean BBQ dinner :)

Free sides…

My BBQ essentials- chilli! The chilli paste had an adequate spicy level so I was happy :)

We both ordered Set C $18 for Beef + Seafood Combination + free flow of rice + soup + sides

And let the BBQ-ing begin… :D

I came out smelling like smoke! Omgg but $18 was pretty worth it for the set. Service was excellent and it’s conveniently located opposite Eggless so you can enjoy dinner and then dessert after. Unless of course you forget to make a reservation which we did today and failed to get a seat!

Travel: 5 Best Dessert Places In Adelaide

It’s a well known fact that I have a major sweet tooth. Chocolates, cakes, ice-cream- you name it, Id probably love them. Anyway a few people have been asking me where the best dessert places in Adelaide are, so I have decided to compile a list of my favourite sweet places in this city. And since this is my list, it’s also based on my opinions so you probably may or may not agree with me but to each its own.

Right at the top of the list at No. 1 for me is good old CHOCOLATE BEAN
18 Union Street, Adelaide SA 5000

Chocolate Hazelnut Heaven
Chocolate Bean Round 2!

Nobody makes chocolate the way Chocolate Bean does. Love everything about their desserts, the coziness of the cafe and the friendliness of the staff. Maybe Im just biased because of its super convenient location. This is a favourite with the housemates and I! Must tries here are the Indulgence Plate, Chocolate Filth and their cakes on display.

Adelaide Eats: Assaggio Ristorante

I seem to be always one week late in my entries. Very very inefficient of me. -Shakes head- but do cut me some slack because I had a bad week with my joints with multiple flare ups and paws for hands and legs. But enough of that, let’s move on to more elegant talk such as fine dining :)

Cakeage here was $3.50 pp..but I guess for 2 cakes that were not very easy to cut, it was kinda worth it? And they arranged our slices really prettily on the plates as well :) Points for effort and service. LOL!

Assaggio is definitely one of the higher end restaurants with mains costing between mid $20s to $30s and for poor students like us, places like these are reserved for very special occasions and birthdays. And it was a special friend’s 22nd that brought us here this time :) Food did not take very long to be served even though our group was really big and the restaurant was full.. service was good and the taste wasnt that fantastic but definitely an experience. I may come back again to try their dessert menu which did sound and look good because the other tables did order a few desserts and the ones that they did order, looked pretty mouth-watering. But to come back again for dinner, perhaps not anytime soon…
