The change of season brings more than just a change of weather. There’s a change of wardrobe, a change of routine and a change in your electricity bill, but the change I’m really excited about, is the change in menus! *the crowd roars* All across this fine city of ours, I can hear chefs muttering frustrated words whilst trying to get the balance of flavours in a new dish juuuuust right, wait staff discussing how to pronounce ‘orecciette’ and printers spluttering out that exciting new list of things for us to eat and drink!
People are endlessly asking me for dinner recommendations. Whether it’s for a birthday, anniversary, graduation shindig or really any occasion under the sun, people want to know…where is a special place to eat? Well, this post is more for myself than anyone else as from now, I can just send them this link! So these are the places I love to go when the occasion is a little bit spesh.
Okay so *NEWSFLASH* Flinders Uni is hip now. Yeh, I didn’t know either and to be honest, I’m feeling a little jaded about the whole thing because when I studied at Flinders there were tumbleweeds rolling through the unipub and the best options for eats were Subway or an Asian joint popular among students who hadn’t started an assignment yet and were hoping for a bout of food poisoning to facilitate a much needed extension.
Like a teenage boy who tells his parents he’s thinking about becoming a priest, I myself am also going through a phase. My calling however, is much more holy as it involves a message from the food gods. A message that reverberates in my ear: EAT MORE BURGERS.
Summer is the time when we rub our groggy eyes and venture out from our winter hibernation. A time when we say ‘Hey friends, remember me!’ and organise to gather together and bask in the beautiful sun that we missed so dearly.
