I LOVE this time of year. There are so many events on but none better than the Fringe in my opinion. Not only are there fabulous shows and entertainment, but there are so many great places to eat in and around the event. This particular night I ventured out to the Garden of Unearthly Delights to see what food options were on offer.
From the get go I felt like tacos, so I basically walked around the whole garden to find some. I was happy to see the La Cantina Co food truck which had options of Nachos, Quesadillas, Burritos and Tacos. I had the Chicken tacos which had salsa, corn, cheese and sour cream. They were pretty delicious. I would have loved a little more freshness to the tacos though with a squeeze of lime and more corriander. But they were great nonetheless and 2 for $10 was a fairly reasonable price.
With Vegan food options everywhere these days it was no surprise to see something in the garden. I must say I wasn’t overly excited when seeing a Tofu Burger on the menu at the Veggie Gallery, but it was amazing! This was sweet chilli tofu with caramelised onions, beetroot, salad and a heck of a lot of carrot. It was so delicious! I first though $13 was a little steep but after seeing the size of this burger it was all worth it.
The Garden had quite a few options from Indian at Beyond India, to Thai, Greek and more. I was pretty horrified thought to see grilled corn at a stall for SIX DOLLARS! I’m sure it was delicious but bloody hell no thanks 😛 Next time Id love to try some Gozleme from Ozzie Gozleme or Mozzarella sticks from Ghetto Smoke since I’ve heard good things.
So it may not be a part of the Fringe but it was in the same vicinity 😛 Scroll is a new ice creamery on York street just off Rundle street. They also have a stall in The Royal Croquet club which is worth checking out.
It may just be the cutest ice cream shop I have ever laid my eyes on. It’s so bright and colourful and it just screams fun and playfulness. Everything ice cream should stand for. Basically Scroll is a cold plate ice creamery and it is so fun watching their staff create these sweet masterpieces. There are quite a few flavour combos to choose from and I’ll definitely need to go back to try every flavour 😛
This is the Nutter Butter ice cream with Nutella and peanut butter and the cutest minion tiny teddies ever. So rich and delicious and a must for any Nutella lover, like myself. The ice cream itself is super creamy and you can’t go wrong with an addition of chocolate wafer sticks ❤
I also tried the ‘Night at the Movies’ which is salted caramel ice cream with pop corn and pretzels. So so yum, but also incredibly sweet. I really struggled to finish this one. They are very generous sizes for only $9 which is great, but I found it almost impossible to get through.
You can’t go wrong with a night at the Adelaide Fringe. Not only are there great options inside the Garden but Rundle Street is absolutely full of great eateries and is buzzing at this time of year. I’m also going to try to make it down to the Royal Croquet Club to check out what food they have on offer as I’ve heard good things. But there’s only a few days left of the Fringe, so get down & check it out before it ends!
