As I understand it, this restaurant was set up by people who used to work at Penfolds Magill Estate, which is probably Adelaide's fanciest restaurant.
Tonight is degustation. This is the only other degustation-only restaurant in Adelaide, as far as I know.
This place is unmarked, and sits atop Street ADL, on Rundle Street.
(foraged from the Adelaide Hills)
Not sure why they can't just buy the ingredients. :)
Muntries, purslane, lili pili shoots, saltbush,and other weird stuff
This was half way between salad and fruit. Hard to describe. Very mild. The occasional unexpected very lemony burst of lemon myrtle is interesting. More interesting than tasty.
The meat is very sweet and salty, and the greens ("karkalla") taste like very watery beans.
Ok. I'm going to eat the little "poo" of haggis. I don't eat offal, but I'll do it this time.
It tastes like a big piece of liverwurst with bits in it, though there was all kinds of offal in there. I won't mark this dish down for being something I don't personally eat.
As I'm told, the purée is very astringent. It's like eating the end black bit of a banana, in terms of its effect on my mouth. It has a taste somewhat like grapes.
The coconut sorbet would be pleasant and plain, if not for the coconut ash on top. This adds a very strong, bitter coconut taste to the sorbet.
All together, with the shaved coconut, this resembles a Cherry Ripe.
With salt and vinegar, and a sauce of strawberry and eucalyptus.
This was like yoghurt with a strawberry taste, but (I assume) the salt and vinegar added a strange taste that seemed out of place here.
I didn't like all the food here, but this certainly was an experience. A huge number of things I've never eaten before.
