Why has an American burger chain opened it doors in little ol’ Mt Barker, South Australia? I wouldn’t have the sliiiightest clue but that certainly didn’t stop me from making the trek out yonder for it’s first week and checking the place out. I wasn’t the only one too with a line of eager feeders almost out the door.
Since it’s opening earlier this year, Shobosho has gotta be one of the most hip and happenin’ eateries in the city centre. I would have got there sooner but I made a booking online one time and then something came up and I forgot to cancel it. Dick move, I know. They called me, they emailed me, I felt like an asshole and then of course I couldn’t go there incase they recognised me. Sure, maaaaaaybe I blew this out of proportion a little but after waiting a couple of months I finally felt confident enough to head in there incognito. My friend booked under her name of course!
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.
