Two creative foodies out to discover enticing flavours and food ideas. When we aren't tucking into our latest delicious find, we're photographing and designing our hearts out.

Korean KFC never tasted so good
RnB Cafe is a goldmine for amazing Korean and Japanese food in Adelaide. Located on Bennet Rd at Melrose Park.

Tucked away in a rather odd little spot just off South Road, we stumbled across RnB Cafe online recently and decided to head across town to check them out.

Inside the little cafe feels bright and upbeat, with pops of colour from garlands of greenery and the funky neon green stools. There's a small amount of seating, but everything is also available for takeaway as well (hint: you can order online via Menulog, Eat Now and Mlkman App).

The interior of RnB Cafe is bright and super cute.


RnB Adelaide started out life as a small cafe before mixing things up with their Korean and Japanese offerings.

The staff were really friendly and helped us choose from the menu, so if you're not sure what to order they'll be happy to recommend.

We kicked things off with the mouthwatering Yangneyeom (Korean Fried) Chicken, which is definitely a must try. It was nicely seasoned and fried, then smothered in a spicy sweet and sour sauce that wasn't too overpowering. You could definitely taste the juicy chicken and seasoning amongst the sweet and sour flavours.

The Fried Garlic Chicken was also lightly seasoned and fried before being topped off with an addictive sweet garlic soy sauce and a sprinkling of fried shallots.

Meanwhile, judging by just how fast it disappeared from our plate, the Karaage Chicken was the favourite for the day. Like the other chicken dishes it was seasoned and fried, but the delicate honey mustard sauce set things off nicely.

You must try at least one of these chicken dishes while you're there.


One of the more surprising dishes of the day was the Fried Cauliflower, which despite being lightly battered and fried, was tender yet crispy. It was served with a spicy mayo dipping sauce that kicked up the flavour.

Just look out for the green on the shop!


The Traditional Korean Jeyuk Pork had a gorgeous smoky charcoal flavour and was served sizzling on a hot plate. It consisted of finely sliced slivers of pork and vegetables tossed through with a spicy Korean sauce.

The Rice Noodle Salad packed soft rice noodles, shredded cabbage, fresh mint and a generous serve of bulgogi beef with a light lemongrass dressing served separately.

The Chilli Squid, also served on a sizzling hot plate, was a spicy mix of tender squid with crispy veggies in a fragrant chilli sauce. It was actually the hottest dish of the day out of the ones we tried.

Alongside our dishes were small bowls of savoury potatoes in soy sauce and fresh kimchi.

All of the dishes we tried had a pleasant amount of spice and nothing sent us running for that tall glass of water. RnB Cafe serves all meals mild unless otherwise requested, so if you're a massive spice lover you can ask for yours to be amped up a notch.
