CHARLICK’S, Adelaide

I’m excited about Charlick’s – I’ve already been twice, and as a matter of fact, I’ve tried every dish on the current menu! The last time I dined at this location it was Vardon Restaurant and the place has certainly undergone an extreme makeover into something cool and modern.

It’s attached to the Stag but entry is off Vardon Avenue. So what’s with the name? It’s named after east-ender William Charlick – the founder of the Adelaide Fruit Read more

LA PROVENCE, Adelaide

SUSHI PLANET, Adelaide

Since it opened, I’ve been a big fan of Sushi Planet on Adelaide’s West Terrace. Not only is the food delicious and presented beautifully (great for Instagram pics!), it just happens to be close to my office, and there’s easy parking.
