We survived our flight with Jetstar and munched on an Oporto burger in the morning, that was breakfast covered.
At about 0700 in Adelaide CBD, the streets were still pretty peaceful.
We roamed around on the streets of Adelaide, window shopped in Rundle Mall and explored the railway station of Adelaide – subconsciously I was searching for a place for lunch and dinner that day =P
After our city walk, we took a tram doing towards Glenelg and that was where we found our lunch – Oyster Shop.
Location: 40 Jetty Rd, Glenelg. SA 5045
Telephone: (08) 8376 7200
Monday ~ Thursday 1130 – 2130
Friday ~ Sunday 1100 – 2230
- Platter for two (large)
- 1/2 dozen oysters – Kilpatrick and cheese grill
Gotta have seafood when you are next to the beach, although it was windy enough to blow anyone away. We found this Oyster Shop along a street full of restaurants, it was probably the ONLY seafood shop which specialises in seafood, the rest of them were either closed or too posh for us. The shop was very quiet that day, I had a doubt in me thinking whether that place was any good. Turned out - so as you can see, the platter had a variety of fresh seafood plus chips. We were quite impressed with it and had a great meal there… I even ate potato chips which I don’t normally… *guilt*
We later found out from the Glenelg Town Hall close by the last tram stop that following the success of Luna Park Melbourne, Glenelg built a Luna Park along the foreshore in 1930 but it was later out of business and the rides were sold off to Sydney. I instantly pictured this beach filled with people in those retro swimmers on and over-sized sunglasses during summer; and children running around with ice-cream or coke in their hands. Then… *the cool gusty wind hugged me once again…* %$@#@&%^%$# Only wished that we were there in summer!!
It was a late lunch so I was still pretty full around dinner time, we had lollies and fudge from Blackebys Old Sweet Shop before J had her lasagna in Skycity Adelaide Casino.
Breakfast the following morning was provided by a cafe next to the motel we’ve stayed at, I have forgotten that cafe’s name because the breakfast was pretty ordinary (didn’t even get to pick the breakfast listed on the menu) x/
We stayed at the Adelaide Paringa motel on Hindley Street, very close to Rundle Street (like Melbourne’s Bourke/Swanston Street); the mall; the railway station; tram stop; and the arts centre. Lots of eatery around the area (especially oriental!! How convenient), it was the city after all.
=( Don’t know if it’s any good? We never had the chance to eat there… Make sure you do check it out =D

We got back from the tour at about 1730 on the day, so before heading off to the airport again we had our dinner in a Korean restaurant called Ga Bin.

The food there weren’t outstandingly delicious, very ordinary flavours with nice presentation. The pancake was a bit too soft for my liking, the service was good so I forgive you Ga Bin…
There were a lot more about Adelaide we have yet explored, really liked that city so I would definitely visit it again in the near future. More food and more fun!
