2. Peel Street Bar

alt

Address: 9 Peel Street
Adelaide SA 5000
Price range: $

Meet Chef Jordan Theodoros and his crew in his pioneer lunch bar in this little laneway called Peel Street. Lots of buzz in a precinct rapidly becoming known as “bar central”. Serving up Middle Eastern and Asian flavours, this bar has a pared-back, semi industrial style with exposed beams and brick walls, and a long polished concrete bar where lunchtime “on the concrete” specials are displayed.
It’s full flavoured, gutsy, simple cooking governed by the seasons. It looks casual, just like the atmosphere at Peel Street but food that tastes this good doesn’t come easily.
Go-to dish: mulloway fish pastry with sauce tartare and iceberg lettuce.



3. Eros Ouzeri Restaurant

alt

Address: 275 -277 Rundle Street
Adelaide SA 5000
Price range: $$

Originally was constructed for the Adelaide Fruit and Produce Exchange, Eros Ouzeri still maintains much of its history and bustling ambience while providing refined service, and a modern twist on the recipes and technique passed down through generations of traditional culinary Greek delights.
Get captivated with a delicious mix menu with the standards such as the traditional house-made dips, pickled and cured meats and the old favourites like lamb souvlaki and grilled octopus. For more selective diners, there are vegetarian and gluten free options provided, like hand-rolled baklava cigars and the classic galactoboureko.
Located in the heart of the City, you’ll find Eros Ouzeri easily accessible and sure to cater for and satisfy the most discerning palate.

Go-to dish: lamb souvlaki and grilled octopus.



4. Ruby Red Flamingo

Address: 142 Tynte Street,
North Adelaide SA 5006

Go-to dish: Polenta, Cannelloni, and Spiedini



5. Nano Ready 2 Go

alt

Address: 23 Ebenezer Pl
Adelaide SA 5000
Price range: $

The idea behind NANO ready 2 go is to combine the delicate hand-made-from-scratch Italian bread with amazing coffee to facilitate a busy city lifestyle.
Here, customers are met by a family that cares. They care about what they feed you and how you feel afterwards. It makes the whole precinct feel more connected, more relevant. Tucked off the Rundle Street in Ebenezer Place, is big, bright and very Italian with all the right elements for breakfast, fast or slow.
Terrific pizzas and focaccias, everything baked fresh that morning, friendly staff, great coffee and orange juice pressed in front of you. Minimal wine offering but it does the job.
Everybody goes there. Breakfast (and lunch) keeps going until 3.30pm.

Go-to dish: pasta of the day, such as linguini arrabiate
