Opened recently at Waymouth Street in Adelaide CBD, the somewhat unusual name of Five Feet Street Eats refers to the five feet wide sidewalks in Indonesia, where locals sell various types of street food. The menu is notably not set on a specific selection of dishes, so you can expect to see different dishes offered with each visit.

A complete meal on its own, the pork chop in their Pork Chop Rice was cooked just right with the topping of sauce helping to bring out its flavour. The pork chop was also cut up to make eating it a bit easier. Served with the pork were a fried egg and some Asian kale. The fresh flavour of the kale went well with the pork chop.

One of the more unique dishes offered during our visit, the chunks of fried chicken in the Guinness Chicken had succulent flesh set off by the crisp coating. Much as its name suggests, the sauce the chicken was tossed in included Guinness beer to give the dish its distinctive rich flavour. A scattering of basil leaves and parsley over the chicken gave the dish a fresh appearance.

The seemingly plain name of Healthy Luncheon belies an interesting version of the Bun Bowl, a Vietnamese salad featuring rice noodles. The Char Siu sauce that the chicken was tossed in had the degree of sweet-savoury we expected, and the broccolini still had a bite to it. A scattering of crushed peanuts added a bit of crunch to the dish. To best enjoy the dish, toss it thoroughly to spread the chicken mince's flavour throughout the rice vermicelli noodles.

During our visit, there was a deal that offered a free Chicken Skewer for every meal that is ordered. We were pleased that the chicken was cooked perfectly and the sauce topping it had a flavour that is similar to Satay, a Malaysian dish.

The restaurant had a relaxed and causal ambience, similar to a food court. Parking is of little issue, with a U-Park within walking distance offering off-street parking.
