For the last few months I've been going into the city once a week (during school hours, because I like to live on the edge!), indulging in a spot of shopping, maybe an hour of blog writing in a quiet cafe, and inevitably, meeting the husband for lunch. We started off slumming it at various food courts, but now we've upped our game, and decided to scout out some cool places to catch a bite in the busy lunch hour period. So I'm starting this little Lunch Series to share with you food pics and our experience of the places we've dined at around our fair and churchy city of Adelaide!
Bread And Bone Wood Grill
15 Peel Street
I hadn't heard of this one, but apparently Peel Street (off Hindley Street) is quite a cool little food district. When you enter, you turn left and head up the stairs, to a trendy-looking eatery with about six long benches. We got there about 12:10pm and it was quite empty (yay!), but by the time we left it was well and truly packed! Hubby and I were seated on one end of a long bench; there was a couple at the other end but we were separated by condiments, including green and red hot sauce bottles, so it was still somewhat private. They also have a number of small, round two-seater tables on the side.
Drinks: Coke Zero's all round. They come with a slice of lemon and I quickly plopped mine into hubby's glass as I like my Coke pure, just as Lindsay Lohan likes hers.
Food: I had the Chicken Burger (fried chicken, guacamole, smoked bacon, cheese, iceberg, kewpie) from the spicy section of the menu and holy crap, was it spicy?! (Yes, the answer is yes). Super-delicious, though, and I am a bit fussy when it comes to burgers. There was a generous amount of sauce in the burger, unlike those dry-arse Maccas ones, and the crispy chicken was really yummy. Hubby said his B&B Burger (beef, smoked bacon, cheese, tomato, lettuce, caramelised onion, pickle, sauce, kewpie) was really good, too. All the burgers come with fries on the side; they were good, not brilliant, but nothing wrong with them either. We also ordered a serve of Onion Rings to share, which came with a tomato sauce. It was quite a small bowl, but taste-wise, we both thought they were great. If there are Onion Rings on the menu, it's a fucking no-brainer, I am ordering it. #Addicted
Fun Fact: Kewpie is a Japanese mayonnaise that's smoother, creamier, richer and more flavoursome than usual mayonnaise. It's made with rice vinegar instead of distilled vinegar.
Ambience: Quiet just after 12 noon, then loud and busy towards 1:00pm. I think we left exactly at the right time, as I hate crowded places. I quite liked the interior and the set-up. The staff were friendly and capable, although I will mention the girl who rang up our bill had not tried the red and green hot sauces on the tables when we asked which was meant to be hotter. Sorry, but if you work at an eatery, you probably should try the sauces, you will get asked about them. Just my opinion!
I would definitely return and try different menu items in the future!
