Mediterranean food at its finest
It's one of those classy-looking places on Rundle Street that I've always passed by and thought - "I wonder what food is served there. Is it even affordable?"
To my absolute delight, it turned out to be a place where affordable meets quality.
San Giorgio is a quaint, little restaurant that is carefully placed on the corner of Rundle Street opposite Cibo. It has a warm seating area inside and a covered outdoor seating as well.
The staff is generally the friendly type, and they are courteous enough to offer you with helpful suggestions in case you feel overwhelmed with the variety of choices offered in their menu.
A couple of friends and I decided to have a dinner date there and we were pleasantly surprised to see their $16.90 meal special. For a sophisticated restaurant like San Giorgio, this special deal seemed to be a blessing for unemployed university students like ourselves.
Included in this spectacular deal is a filling range of entrees, main courses and desserts to choose from. One item per category, I tried the salmon salad with a delicious salad dressing on top as an entree. In my opinion, the salmon was cooked to perfection and was smooth to eat with the leafy green veggies on the side.
For the main course, I opted for the Poloalfungi Grilled Chicken with mushroom gravy. This is the bomb, and I'd highly recommend any meatlover to try this dish - it is absolutely scrumptious, and I guarantee it will leave your tastebuds tingling for more.
Lastly, for dessert, we all decided to try the Tiramisu, as they had run out of their classic banana caramel tarts. The Tiramisu is extremely light, fluffy and easy to eat - it was a tummy-satisfying winner for all of us.
I think the best part about San Giorgio's food is not only the taste of their dishes, but also their presentation. It is one of the most important components that can add to the satisfaction and enjoyment of the meal. This place does not fail to deliver, so I'd humbly ask you all to try out this place at least once while you're in Adelaide.
