Full service restaurant caters for eat-in or takeaway
Moana is a beachside settlement south of Adelaide, between Port Noarlunga and Maslins Beach. On the weekend, we decided to stop there instead of driving straight past on our way somewhere else. The township is small, but we were pleased to find a Barnacle Bill where we could have a pleasant meal.
Barnacle Bill has a menu which is primarily seafood. This is a trial for my friend, who has a seafood allergy. However, some Barnacle Bill stores offer more variety than others. It has been our discovery that the regional stores offer more grill items than the inner-city stores.
Barnacle Bill Moana is licensed and also has a salad bar. My mouth watered when it saw curried egg salad, Greek salad, bean salad, and something that looked like pineapple in cheese powder.
My friend was pleased to find that Barnacle Bill Moana makes a beef burger. He ordered the "burger bonanza", which includes burger chips and can of drink. This is comparable to the "super lunch special" I ordered, which included fish, 3 calamari, 3 prawns, chips and can of drink.
Our food was freshly prepared and very pleasant. The owners were also friendly and obliging, providing us with bottles of tartare sauce and tomato sauce with which to flavour our chips.
We also enjoyed ice-cream and fritters from their fresh dessert menu. During our visit, the staff also served a number of takeaway customers, indicating this restaurant is popular with locals and holiday makers!
Do your palate a big favour and take a cruise up Hanson Road, Woodville Gardens some day. Here you will find a small cafe restaurant called Ba Ria 2.
I'd call it a Mum n Dad type restaurant, but a gastronomic delight awaits within. Vietnamese menu that is swamped with Viet customers, always a good indicator. Best Vietnamese Pho in Adelaide.
