GIN LONG CANTEEN, North Adelaide
There’s one word for Gin Long Canteen: FUN! It’s a great place to kick back, have some great food and cocktails in a buzzy, often loud atmosphere, and host Jerri is always entertaining. It’s always busy here with people often being turned away at the door. I love the tongue-in-cheek somewhat racist humour with the ‘Liesling’ (house white) and ‘Shilaz’ house red. This night, we decided to have the “Chow Down – WOW” banquet which meant not having to make any decisions! We loved it all – from the ‘Very Exciting Beef Salad’ to the ‘Pomegranate Chicken’. All washed down with pandan-infused gin and a bottle or two of red wine! A couple of my favourite dishes are the Prawn Dumplings in mild red curry sauce, and the Slow Braised Thai Beef. Big, bold flavours from start to finish. We were all truly satisfied – make sure you wear your fat pants!
