Eating Adelaide: The Daniel O’Connell- Street ADL- Chinatown – Estia

The Daniel O’Connell gastropub in North Adelaide takes the concept of traditional Irish fare with a creative twist to daring lengths. They also went to town with their drinks menu- their ‘Old Fashioned’ uses bacon infused bourbon, and their ‘A Sangre Fria’ Mary uses vintage sirloin washed vodka (I enjoyed that! Like a chilled raw soup in a glass. Strange, but delicious,).

Phil and our friend Jeff shared a Sunday Roast for two, and I ordered the vintage sirloin with leeks, spring onions, and whipped fat. The boys picked the hits, and I picked a miss. Bugger. Their roast beef was perfect. I picked the more interesting dish, but found that the flavours didn’t sit well with me- pickled spring onions (supposed to be inspired by kimchi), smelt like feet; and the cold whipped fat tasted was exactly as it sounds, now that I think about it.

Apart from my meal, everything else was gorgeous. The interiors, the atmosphere, the service, the interesting drinks- all thumbs up.

Khaki, gold, rose- work appropriate Christmas makeup FOTD

 

fotd

Hello!

Hope you’ve all been well.  I’ve just come back from an (awesome) holiday in Thailand and Cambodia- and now facing the madness of  work, study, and what my friend Arjun calls “life admin”. It’s about time I did another makeup post!

This look is a work appropriate way to wear a little bit of colour for the neutral lovers amongst us. The green shade and little pop of gold also makes it a nice way to sneak in some Christmas colours- pair with a glossy red if you are feeling particularly festive.
