Herringbone Restaurant, Adelaide CBD

ADELAIDE | What a way to finish off two weeks of Adelaide food adventures, with dinner at Herringbone. The restaurant was opened in 2018 by experienced hospo trio Quentin Whittle (head chef), Paul Tripodi, and Ben McLeod.

Herringbone champions South Australia, from the locally sourced produce to the almost exclusively South Australian wine list. The food is produce driven, creative, and delicious. The menu is one of those that is concise, but still difficult to choose from as it all sounds very appealing.

I settled on five dishes when I visited, which gave me enough food for dinner and a pre-flight breakfast the next day. To start, a velvety and salty (in a very good way) whipped cod roe and house made potato crisps. Following this, I had to grab the restaurant’s unofficial signature dish – baked scallop, soubise, ‘nduja, smoked paprika. One bite, and it’s clear to see why this scallop is something special.

Next up, a wonderfully summery dish of stracciatella, kasundi, heirloom tomato, and fried curry leaves. A lot going on in this one, and it all comes together wonderfully. To finish savouries, I opted for the pan-fried potato gnocchi with roasted tomato sugo, basil pistou, and marinated chevre. A brilliant dish, with perfectly pillowy gnocchi and a rich, textured sugo. I loved the house chilli sauce on the side for customisable heat levels with each bite.

For dessert, I had to go for the brûlée lisbon lemon tart, roasted strawberry, and pink peppercorn ice cream. A great finish to the meal, with big, fresh summer flavours.
