I love slow travel, slow food and discovering new adventures and delicious regional food in new locations. I'm on an indulgent quest and I'd love you to follow at www.walkeatshare.wordpress.com

Overlooking Boston Bay
South Australia's Eyre Peninsula is famous for its outstanding seafood. If you're lucky enough to go there you'll be tempted by fat local prawns, abalone, oysters, the very famous Kinkawooka Mussels, squid and possibly a crayfish or two. It's seafood heaven with so much salty goodness to choose from.

On Tasman Terrace, overlooking beautiful Boston Bay, is a gem of a cafe known as Del Giorno's.

It's unpretentious and impressive in equal measures and it's almost always full of eager diners from near and far. You can place your order at the bar, cafe style, then take a seat and prepare yourself for culinary enjoyment.

I'm always tempted by a mussel pot as it tends to turn my mind to memories of summers in France. I'd heard of the local Kinkawooka Family seafood business and proceeded to order their mussels in a white wine and garlic sauce.

The dish arrived in a pot, à la française, which immediately put a smile on my face. It was served with fries, also a French idea as an accompaniment to mussels. I washed the mussels down with a glass of local wine (Boston Bay Great White Sauvignon Blanc), followed by a glass of rose from the Barossa. Délicieux.

My lunch companion chose the Marinara Pizza which, naturally, I enjoyed a piece of. In exchange for three plump mussels and a taste of my Sav Blanc.

The pizza was also delicious but, sadly, left me no room to indulge in a selection from Del Giorno's cake display.

The afternoon was warm for Autumn so we sat outside and enjoyed the view of the bay. I could have done without the noise from passing cars but everything else was pretty well perfect.

I always recommend a walk before or after lunch. Before AND after is even better. Quelle coïncidence; alongside Boston Bay is a walking trail known as the Parnkalla Trail. It's six kilometres long and a walk along this trail is a perfect opportunity to see samples of Port Lincoln's coastline, flora and fauna, residential areas old and new, and the busy harbour.

A walk here is also perfect for calorie burning after an indulgent seafood lunch.
