Sean's Kitchen, Adelaide

New York comes to Adelaide

TOP DESTINATION FOR FOODIES

What’s the collective noun for a plurality of posh eateries? A pinch, a handful, a mouthful, a bite? Here they call it a precinct, perhaps ambitiously. The area around the intersection of King William with our cultural boulevard, North Terrace, including Leigh and Peel Streets, is Adelaide’s new high dining zone. Sean’s Kitchen was singled out in the recent New York Times article that nominated Adelaide as the only Australian city in the list of top travel destinations for 2015.

My friend from England and I turned up without a booking and were lucky enough to get a table for a “drink and a snack.” The drinks -beer and cider- arrived in pewter tankards. For my snack I chose “an orgy of mushrooms” – my companion the quinoa and borletti bean salad. I have never attended an orgy, so I can’t comment on the appropriateness of the name – but this was my best mushroom experience ever, accompanied by a creamy McLaren Vale verdelho- fortunately our waitress advised against a red wine. The lady on the next table ordered a steak, and for once I was not even a pinch envious. Long may this precinct be seasoned with gourmet cuisine, a perfect pairing with our world class South Australian wines.
