SAH Modern Mediterranean
After attending a restaurant with a locked door, chairs on its tables, and no service, I've had to make other plans.
I'm at tapas restaurant SAH - one of the best restaurants in North Adelaide. I rate it second only to Red Ochre, on the Torrens.
Marinated in oregano, garlic and lemon.
I'm not sure where the waitress is from.
Waitress: "Have you tried crickets?"
Daniel: "Umm, no. Crickets?"
She points them out, on the menu.
Daniel: "Oh, croquettes."
The quail comes out. It's very small. Much smaller than the chicken I had the other day. It must've been a baby. :|
The quail is almost boneless. The flavours from the oregano, char grilling, and salt all saturate the meat, giving it a strong flavour.
With garlic, chilli & sweet smoked paprika.
Right. The shell is so soft you can eat it.
The shell of the crab is crunchy like the batter, not like the usual plastic-y shell of a crab.
There's not actually very much meat here, and the meat is rather squishy and mild. This dish is mostly about chomping on crunch shell, legs, and batter. It's more of a light snack than a meal component.
I've run out of desserts. I don't want to stoop to eating churros (Latin America's equivalent of a supermarket cinnamon doughnut.) so I'm eating the excellent house-made ice-creams again, because there are flavours I haven't tried.
Watermelon: This sorbet is very syrupy. It tastes like watermelon, but strangely it's like the white part of the watermelon, not the red part. 7/10
Vanilla: This actually has an almost-caramel taste. Very viscous and strongly-flavours, even if that flavour isn't vanilla. 8/10
Chocolate brownie: This is strange. It's like mashed chocolate, mixed with some ice cream. However, the chocolate doesn't have a strong chocolate flavour. This is extraordinarily stodgy. It's not really like ice cream. I stop chewing on it half-way. 4/10
