I will only write about places that I've had a great experience. There are so many local heroes around Adelaide and I want to try and share them all.

Gourmet Burgers and Craft Beer
King William Rd and its vendors are synonymous with boutique and gourmet, so it only makes sense that 'gourmet burger' fever would make its way to Hyde Parks High Street. Burger Republic has shaken up the restaurants along King Willam Rd with their re-vamped version of the humble hamburger.
Burger Republic have done a stellar job, meeting the standards of the boutique burger community. There has been thought put into every element. Thick beef patties are made with quality mince and cooked medium, so they are still just pink in the middle. The house sauces are really something special and the buns are no ordinary burger buns, but Brioche Buns. Brioche is a decadent French bread - it was traditionally only eaten by the 'rich aristocrats' as the 'peasants' could never afford to eat it.
The age old saying of 'good things come to those who wait' more often than not applies here. If the restaurant is busy, you can expect some delays. The staff are usually pretty spot on with the wait time and the takeaway menu states "Our burgers are made with love, not speed. We try and get our burgers out as quickly as possible, if the restaurant is busy, please expect delays". We've never had a really long wait and its only when the restaurant is filled to the brim - the burgers have always been worth it though.
The prices really reflect the quality of the burger and the atmosphere. How ever if you have a gold card (from the Entertainment Book), then upon showing your card you will get a discount (I'm unsure of the exact terms & conditions but we use it when we buy our burgers and we receive a good discount)
