Only in South Australia
We South Aussies may like erecting a church or two, murdering folk in strange and convoluted ways and pretty well ignoring Sydney and Brisbane as much as we can, but we do have some positives.
Our food and wine, in my well-travelled opinion, are second to none. The influences of our much admired Italian, Greek, Vietnamese, German, Thai, Chinese, Indian and Nepalese immigrants have been huge on our cultural life and our cuisine.
Our Central Market is awash with spices, herbs, fresh produce, pastries, breads, cheeses, coffee beans and chocolates from around the world, and the food hall is sensational. There, for less than ten bucks, you can get a huge serving of Chinese, Hong Kong BBQ, Thai, Indian, Korean, Japanese, Malaysian or Indonesian food. Fresh, spicy and hot; just the way it oughta be.
What tickles me though, is our favourite beverage. Regardless of the chilli, cumin, prawn, goat, rice, durian or shitake content, THIS was dotted around every table in the packed hall:
Geez I love Adelaide.
