Tapas meals are best to be enjoyed with a group of friends. I often have the impression that the plates are small and it will cost an arm and a leg to be full. Tonight, my girlfriends and I, a group of 4, had the most enjoyable tapas meal at the 2nd & 6th at Peel Street, the trendiest dining precinct in Adelaide.
We chose 2nd & 6th for a Wednesday night because of the special half-price promotion for food with Dimmi. As I said, we want to experience the tapas meal without breaking the bank. Given that the food is going to be half-priced, we ordered everything wanted to try without looking at the price tag.
It doesn't look like there are many dishes on offer but we are happy with the choices. After much debate, we settled on 1 small plate and 3 big plates to share plus a side dish. For the small plate, we ordered the Grill Haloumi. The big plates included Duck Breast, Saltimbocca Chicken and Zucchini Flower Salad. The side dish was Truffle Chips.
The waitress knows the dishes very well and suggested how the dishes should be served. She told us that the Grill Haloumi only came with 3 pieces and asked if we wanted an extra piece. She also explained to us how the dishes in the big plates would be cooked and served.
When the Grill Haloumi arrived, we started our tapas journey. The entree was very special. It was not something that I would cook at home. The Grill Haloumi served with warm watermelon and beetroot sauce. It is definitely a great start.
We were quite full after the meal but the dessert menu looks irresistible. With half-price in our mind, we ordered 4 desserts to share: 2 Breakfast After Dinner and 2 Satanical Gardens. When the desserts arrived, it was the jewel in the crown moment. The desserts look creative like those you would see in the 3 Michelin-star restaurants. They are both a feast to the eyes. They are definitely Instagram worthy.
In terms of flavour, we loved the Breakfast After Dinner better. It was clean, light and more complex in terms of execution. You can tell by the look of why it is called Breakfast After Dinner. It is so creative! It makes us pay attention to every single element of the dish just like how MasterChef judges will comment on the contestants' dishes.
When the bill came, we paid under $25 per person for food alone because of the Dimmi discount. For food of this calibre, the service and atmosphere of the restaurant and the price we paid, what more can you ask for? The promotion is still on. I am going to book again to go with my family this time.
