What's better than a catch up with friends, drinks and good food?
Literally nothing. I think we can all agree it requires a fair amount of effort to get out of the house in Winter! Although, we promise these six places are a sure winter hit for those laid back, cosy vibes. These are the hidden, winter gems of Adelaide!
Queens Head - North Adelaide
Built in 1838, the Queens head has been newly renovated, giving a modern, stylish, rustic feel. A favourite spot to defrost before and after footy games, it definately makes meeting groups of friends easy! Serving pasta, wood-oven pizza, vegetarian and gluten-free options. With an award winning pub fare, it's perfect for a drink and catch up with friends.
Est Pizzeria - East Terrace
Open every night, you can't go wrong. Est has the perfect vibe upstairs for a date night you won't soon forget. Cozy and cute, this long serving East End favourite is romance all over. Serving an array of Italian wood-fired pizzas and gnocchi. The wine and beer list is perfectly matched for the perfect pizza and beverage combination.
Pho Ba Ria 2 - Woodville Gardens
One of Adelaides hidden authenic exquisite Vietnamese food experiences, Pho Ba Ria 2 may be out of the way but their fresh food as well as known greatly for their friendly, prompt service. With a large menu, and even larger Pho bowls, there are multiple options for any type of foodie! The prices are super affordable, you can't go wrong with a hearty Vietnamese winter dish.
Ember Pizza - Nurioopta
The Barossa Valley have many hidden gems, although this is one of our favourites. The atmosphere is incredibly laid back, as well as family friendly. An unbelievable array of pizzas as well as Barossa fine, fresh foods all in one menu. Located in the precinct of the valley, it was once apart of the Penfold Wines epicentre. It now embraces the character of the historical building.
The Currant Shed - McLaren Flat
We are blessed with one of the most beautiful wine capitals here in SA. Incredibly, this restaurant offers food grown right from their own vegetable garden. Exquisitely handmade between three chefs, all with many years of experience. The interior is impeccable and spacious. A bite to eatst overlooking the vineyard it is worth the trip.
The Locavore - Stirling
If you haven't heard of the 100 mile diet, the Lovacore have it on offer. Meaning, most of their produce is grown within a 160 kilometre radius of the restaurant and is offered right on their menu, incredible. Their beer and wine menu is also only stocked from SA regions. They are literally the epitome of what our state has to offer this Winter as well as all year round.
