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

Celebrating all things local
Everyone's favourite beach café, at Goolwa, has just reopened with a brand new name, fresh new menu and an exciting new approach to showcasing all things local.

Kuti Shack
Kuti Shack. Goolwa.

Goolwa is Australia's first Cittaslow or Slow Town, so it's fitting that Kuti Shack, formerly Bombora Café, celebrates associated Slow values. This exciting project brings together a fishing company; Goolwa Pipi Co, their commercial partners, the Ngarrindjeri people, and three Fleurieu-based chefs. Billy Dohnt, Brendon Roach and Vanessa Button have put together a fabulous menu focussing on locally-sourced, sustainable produce. Former Bombora Café owner and Pipi ambassador Olaf Hansen also appears in cameo to add further pizzazz to the venture.

The menu features local fish caught by the Hindmarsh Island-based fishing family, the Hoad's, as well as other locally sourced seafood, native indigenous ingredients Fleurieu wines, beer and coffee.

Starters include Sashimi Pipis with Samphire and Bloody Mary sorbet, Pipis with XO Sauce and Crusty Dunking Bread, Saltbush crusted Baby Squid and several vegetarian options.



Mains include the much-loved local dish Pipi Pasta, Local Coorong-caught Fish of the Day and Coorong Mulloway wings - a dish designed to be eaten with your hands. The daily specials board (a surfboard of course) offers further local treats according to seasonal availability.

There's local art at Kuti Shack too. A mural entitled 'Dreaming of Our Lands and Waters', by local artist Cedric Varcoe, adds another creative dimension to this proud enterprise.

Looks like I need a trip to Adelaide. I love the 'pipi' bike. Setting looks AMAZING.

Wow, looks great. Will have to put it on my list to do when I am next in my home state.
