Wine Underground – Adelaide

by Suha on February 6, 2011

The wine Underground is an interesting concept. It is split over two levels. At the street level is the Bistro – very casual yet fine dining cuisine. The wine list is very well priced and offers a variety of unique local and international wines. Downstairs is the cellar wine bar. They open different wines everyday so you can try before you order. They even have some private dining rooms downstairs which would make for a great fun night in groups. The food at the bistro was much better than I expected it to be. We tried two entrees and two mains and finger licked all the plates. The desserts were a bit of a disappointment as they were both a bit over cooked but on the whole – a great experience.

Seared scallops, crispy sweet breads, cauliflower puree, braised walnuts

P1050566

Tortellini of house made ricotta, muscatels, almond and beurre noisette – great flavours and perfectly cooked pasta. Would have loved some bread to wipe up the butter at the end.

P1050568

Hay valley lamb rump, roasted shallots, provencale veges and pan-fried gnocchi

P1050570

Crisp skinned duck breast, potato rosti, cointreau glazed orange

P1050572

Strawberry soufflé – great flavour just a bit overcooked and dry at the end

P1050573

Bitter chocolate tarte, salted caramel and mascarpone – didn’t like this one at all. Very dry and hard and bitter and just didn’t do it for me.
