One of the main streets within the Adelaide CBD, Waymouth Street plays hosts to a good range of restaurants. The variety of restaurants is quite diverse, ranging from places where you can grab a quick eat to more formal settings.

Five Feet Street Eats is a great place to enjoy various dishes based on Asian street foods, along with a few more "upmarket" dishes. A dish we enjoyed there was the Nestum Chicken, so-called from the use of the namesake cereal which gave the dish its distinctive slightly sweet flavour.

Great for those wanting something "upmarket" for an evening dinner, Press* Food & Wine specialises in dishes featuring South Australian produce, many of which are cooked on the restaurant's custom char-grill. Offered as a special during our visit was the 1kg Rib Eye with Mashed Potato and Salad, which featured juicy rib-eye steak with a good amount of char. As its name suggests, the dish was suited for sharing.

For Western-style cuisine in a less formal setting, there is the bistro in The Cumby, also known as the Cumberland Arms Hotel. The Cumby Burger was one of the dishes that we enjoyed, featuring a juicy beef patty partnered nicely by the red onion jam and bacon. A notable aspect is the inclusion of tomato relish to serve as a dipping sauce for the accompanying chips.

Not too far from The Cumby is Kin Thai which fittingly specialises in Thai cuisine. We particularly enjoyed the Lava Omelette Tom Yum Seafood which had seafood cooked just right with a Tom Yum sauce that had an appetizing spicy and slightly sour taste. Presentation of the dish notably resembles the Japanese dish, Omurice (Japanese Omelette Rice).

A popular place with the locals, Adelaide Pho not only serves its delectable namesake but also tasty Vietnamese-style stir-fry dishes too. The broth of their Pho had a bit of a sweeter flavour compared to those from other places we have tried, with the slices of rare beef being very tender.
