I will be visiting Adelaide for the first time over Easter and would be grateful for any help in steering myself towards the best food the city has to offer.

My available meals and current plans (which can easily be changed subject to any replies) are as follows:

Friday dinner - Press food and wine
Saturday breakfast - Chianti Classico
Saturday lunch - ???
Saturday dinner - Kenji
Sunday breakfast - ???
Sunday lunch - Adelaide Zoo
Sunday dinner - Pizza (maybe Est?)
Monday breakfast - ???
Monday lunch - Chianti Classico

Any other ideas?

Thanks,

    Two discoveries from recent jaunts to Adelaide
    http://mesalunga.com
    http://www.bestrestaurants.com.au/res...

    I've reviewed both on Eatability.com, and would happily return to either

    I also learned that (apparently) the only place in Adelaide serving Campos coffee is right next to the Crowne Plaza in Hindmarsh Sq

      A drive to the Fleurieu Peninsula is nice.

      Alternatively Loca Vore in Stirling

      "Locavore (local-eater) lives by the principles of the 100-mile diet. That is wherever possible, all produce is sourced from within a 160 km radius."

      In the Adelaide Hills. The autumnal colours may be starting to come out by that time.

        Etica does a good neopolitan pizza - for that style, wouldnt eat anywhere else in 'laide.

          Good life organic pizza in Glenelg is good too.
