Flavoursome food with an interesting twist
Salter's Kitchen

In Saltram Wine Estate, established in 1859, you'll find the restaurant Salter's Kitchen, a great stop for lunch if heading to or from Angaston, while touring the Barossa.

While overlooking the charming Mamre Brook House, the room has a nice ambience, funky and modern with clean lines which is a change of pace from much of the historic area. The wood fired oven in the corner of the room bode well for the kids after wood fired pizza.

Salter's Kitchen Dips

We shared some dips to start and the delicious slow roasted pork shoulder arancini.

The Barossa Butcher's small goods pizza was met with approval and the kids fish and chips was generous.

From the more adult fare, the lamb shank was simple and cooked as ordered, a hearty serve with season vegetables hidden underneath.

I opted for the comfort food, a very tasty beef brisket & Pepperjack pie, with a rosemary jus.

Salter's Kitchen kids dessert

The kids got dessert included (I'm not entirely sure if this was on the kids menu or just the generosity of the waitress). I went to inspect the tasting room and was distracted by the eye-catching, colourful display case, brimming with desserts. I had eaten to capacity but couldn't resist trying one of these wonders. I opted for the tiny cherry aero, a mere $3. An interesting mix of textures and chocolate.

Had I not eaten so much, I would have loved to have tried this magnificent blueberry cheese cake. The woman on the next table finished hers, leaving not a trace on the plate, so I think we can take that as a recommendation beyond just the alluring playfulness of the colour.

So now you just need to decide whether you sacrifice the delicious arancini for the sake of a tantalising dessert, or go for a 'mini' sweet treat, in order to enjoy both.
