NOLA, Adelaide CBD

ADELAIDE | Southern, Louisiana inspired food, delicious cocktails and craft beer, and a great atmosphere. That’s what I was expecting when I went to NOLA and that’s exactly what I got.

The venue opened in 2015, and quickly built a reputation as a place that delivered on its promise. Whether it’s a full meal that you’re after, or just a drink and a snack, NOLA is the goods.

When I went, I got a serve of their signature Southern fried chicken thighs, key lime pie, Freeform Jazz Odyssey, a coconut and chocolate Schwarzbier from Single Cut Beer, and a Tickets Please cocktail. The latter is a blend of spiced Buffalo Trace, smoked blackberry liqueur, lime orgeat, mango, passionfruit, pineapple juice, and bitters. All exactly what I needed.

I’d like to return for a full meal next time I’m in Adelaide, and compare the food to what I enjoyed when I visited New Orleans a few years ago. But what I did try, I was very happy with.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences.Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
