The workplace water cooler chat recently has been 1) who’s going to win season 3 of Ru Paul’s Drag Race All Stars, 2) favourite lip shades for work and 3) how bloody amazing Bai Long Store is. The chat was enough to get me to pick up the blower and make a reservation. Going in, my hopes were higher than Dolly Parton’s rack and SPOILER ALERT: I wasn’t disappointed.
I wouldn’t say we’re spoilt for choice when it comes to drool-inspiring Mexican food in our city. There are undoubtedly a couple of gems dotted around the joint but I’d like to see more authentic Mexican fare injected into the throbbing vein that is the Adelaide food scene.
I love me some January with the smell of ‘fresh start’ in the air. The weather’s uplifting, your energy is renewed and you feel like you CAN loose those extra 5 kg’s AND find the man of your dreams with time left over to start that pottery class you’ve always wanted to do. So let’s take a minute to send some props to January because it really does treat us with respect, like a one night stand who offers to drop you home in the morning. In an ode to this stunner of a month, here’s a little glimpse of the things I’ve been loving in Jan.
Ugh, don’t you hate it when a stunning Adelaide Hills winery invites you to check out their new Tasting Room and Sunday lunch? I really couldn’t think of anything more retched than driving through the scenic Adelaide Hills and it’s vibrant green paddocks, speckled with livestock and native flora. Even worse, is when everyone is so damn friendly and welcoming, stuffing you with despicably divine food and booze. Well, I had to live that nightmare a few Sunday’s ago. Ya’ll feeling sorry for me, I know.
Us Adelaidian’s know we’re spoilt for breaky choice. This means it takes nothing short of a magical never-ending coffee cup served to you by Christopher Abbott to earn a 5 star Yelp review. I didn’t spot any Hollywood heartthrobs at Seasonal Garden Café’s new branch in Norwood, but it receives a solid thumbs up from me all the same. So they must be doing alotta things right.
