Ravenous, relentlessly treading Adelaide’s crooked pavement. Cerebellum still lightly etched with its familiar grid, searching for cheap simplicity on a plate.
Hindley Street, once the gritty neon underbelly. Now, more sheesha than showgirls. Are the falafels from The Jerusalem as perfect 15 years on?
Leigh Street, its fresh face evidence of a lightly botoxed mid-life crisis. Like new jeans two weeks later, nearly comfortable.
The Ambassador, silent now, yet balcony still quivering from the feet of a thousand sweaty teens, bumping and grinding to R. Kelly and TLC under a hot, red moon.
The Taxpayer Burger and Booze Bar my quarry. Not to be. It seems Hobart isn’t the only Australian capital city to shut down after 5.
Perhaps an old haunt down China Town way? It’s name forgotten but not the duck. In hindsight so tame, yet our first foray into the unusual. Alas, no more. King of the dumplings ever voracious. And so it goes.
Instead something new. Minimal frontage, perching room only, but smiles from ear to ear make all the difference!
Samurai Okonomiyaki aren’t flash. In fact, they’re downright rudimentary in the crockery department. Who eats plates though? A European blogging niche?
Unlike many pretenders, memories of Hiroshima food theatre came forth at their bidding. Great value at less than $10. At last, satiated.
Overall thoughts of Samurai Okonomiyaki?
Better than a poke in the eye with a chop stick!
Cabbage, grated potato, onion, bacon, grilled, ginger, wakame slivers and dancing bonito flakes. Less than $10 in less than 10 minutes? It’s a takeaway winner.
