Adelaide’s Best Burgers

Who doesn’t love a burger? The KiA team have slipped on their stretchy pants (ok that was just Tim) and taken to the streets to find the best family burgers. Fair to say our gastro mission uncovered some serious burger gold. Some we always knew were good, some we had to search bloody hard for and some, well we can’t actually tell you about, because burger disappointment is a real thing. We want fresh buns, tasty flame grilled meats, fancy...

Adelaide’s Best Donut

Our team at Kids in Adelaide are passionate about World Donut Day. Nobody hates a donut (especially not kids, or Tim). Possibly the most important food in our South Australian economy, demonstrated regularly when referencing any country town by the quality of the bakery before anything else. Also every bakery lives or dies by its donuts. Case closed. Donuts are King. SO, the first Friday in June is International Donut Day (or doughnut for the...

TGI Fridays – Marion & TTP

Full disclosure: this post is drool-inducing and may result in failed diets and sudden urges to get in your car and drive to the nearest TGI Fridays venue. But in all honesty, we can’t think of a better place in Adelaide to shamelessly fill your face devouring a kilo of chicken wings than TGI Fridays. Here, we can loose ourselves in the cool, low-lit style and understated laid-back American vibe. Legend has it that ‘every day of the...

The Bavarian, Tea Tree Plaza

It’s not often my family can go out for dinner and truly not able to finish another bite, but that is exactly what happened at The Bavarian TTP. We popped in to try out their new $49 Feed the Family Deal (available daily before 6pm) and it was sensational! This wasn’t a bucket of nuggets trash meal either, this was high quality German-inspired fare with a great variety to satisfy even the fussiest of eaters. (great beers too just quietly...
