Adelaide restaurants and cafés are transforming their business models to survive the COVID-19 pandemic, pivoting to new takeaway and delivery offerings. Here's where you can still go for a warm meal or hot cup of coffee.

SPECIAL REPORT: COVID-19 ADELAIDE

The COVID-19 pandemic has now shut down a majority of South Australia’s hospitality industry – with the sole opportunity for continued service of food extended to cafés and restaurants able to transition to a takeaway or delivery business model.

While some venues have sadly been forced to close, others have made the pivot and introduced takeaway and delivery menus, as well as introducing a market stall arm to their business, offering wholesale fruit, vegetables, bread, milk and eggs to their local community.

As the industry makes this transition, CityMag will be keeping an eye out and adding all the trading cafés and restaurants we are aware of. This list will be continually updated, so if we’ve missed your business, please reach out.

Browse through this A-Z list of local businesses you can support with additional cash flow in this time of need. You were going to buy bread anyway, and they’re all much better at cooking than most of us.

We’re in a residential part of the city and that way we can try and keep our suppliers in business and also us in business and supply food to residents: coffee, milk, bread, that kind of stuff.”

LA POPULAR TAQUERIA

One of our most popular Chef Vs. Public BBQs was made with Daniella Guevara, so we were heartened when she reached out to let us know her Port Adelaide restaurant La Popular Taqueria is now set up for take away meals and their new COVID-19 inspired ‘meal packages’.

Now you can buy all La Popular Taqueria’s authentic ingredients to make your own tacos at home! Take away can be arranged by sending a text to: 0466 105 004 – or by using the Bopple app.

If you prefer delivery you can find LPT on Uber Eats (but Uber takes too much of a percentage in our opinion) so why not give them a call direct!


 

LITTLE BANG BREWING COMPANY

Little Bang is now delivering beer across the nation (there’s a $5 delivery fee for Metropolitan Adelaide), as well as a short list of food menu items, designed by chef John McFarlane, available for contactless pick up or delivery, with a flat $5 delivery fee.

The menu features fried cauliflower and buffalo wings, a range of burgers, chips, and a wafu salad – each still drawing from the “Asian-tapas-meets-burger-van” style John set for the kitchen.

With a generous range of Little Bang beer also on offer – including half-half cases, if you like a bit of variety – all you need is a bunch of mates set up on Houseparty for a trivia night and you’ve got the entire Little Bang Thursday night experience from the comfort of your living room.

LEIGH STREET WINE ROOM

Despite closing a few weeks ago, Leigh Street Wine Room is back up and running offering provider boxes, bottles of its finest natty wines, and some house-made treats, like the restaurants focaccia and charcuterie.

We could all do with a mortadella sandwich right about now.

The bar is regularly updating its Facebook and Instagram pages with what’s on offer, so stay tuned.


 

LOT 100

Since 2018, Lot 100 has been the go-to destination to stock up on great Adelaide Hills-based wine, beer and spirits, but they’ve also just launched an in-house market to help keep your cupboard full of South Australia produce

The site is surrounded by Adelaide Hills producers, and so the team has put together a range of grocery boxes – groceries, pasta, pizza supplies – which can be pre-ordered for pick up seven days a week.

The offering changes daily, and you can place your order via the Lot 100 website.


 

LOW & SLOW LEIGH STREET

In a time not long before mandatory social distancing – in fact the very day before Prime Minister ScoMo announced a ban on gatherings of 500 people or more – everyone’s favourite Port Adelaide meat smokery, Low & Slow, opened up a new outlet on Leigh Street.

As you can see above, it was a good time.

Threw traded for a couple of weeks before inevitably, and wisely, taking some time to re-evaluate and let the city and its people become accustomed to their new reality.

One month on, Low & Slow is back and wants to feed you all the good American BBQ they can, in the brief and fleeting window of Friday and Saturday evenings from 5pm.

The menu is posted on Low & Slow Leigh Street’s Facebook page in the days before the weekend, and preorders are essential. Get your Low & Slow fix by emailing hello@lowandslowleighst.com.


 

MARINO MEAT & FOOD STORE

One of our favourite Italian Families (and we have a few here in Adelaide) the Marino’s re-imagining of their delicatessen in the Adelaide Central Markets was one of our favourite stories last year.

Remarks

Marino Meat & Food Store
Adelaide Central Markets
52 Gouger St, Adelaide, South Australia 5000
(08) 8340 3536
info@marinomeats.com.au

Hit hard – like every retailer – by the COVID-19 situation Katrina Marino reached out this week to let us know Marino Meat and Food store was ploughing on through the uncertainty so far and had turned their wholesale ordering system (originally designed for chefs / kitchen staff) into an online ordering platform for customers.

All you need to do is set up an account by calling or emailing them direct, place your order and they’ll deliver the next day. We suggest spirali, pork ribs, and pork and fennel sausages as well as their pasta selection and – why not go for a lucky dip with what even Katrina describes as – It includes all of our “our infamous range of Italian laundry products haha.”


 

 

METTA SOL

Metta Sol in Goodwood is a favoured destination of Adelaide’s vegan and non-vegan community alike, and the Vietnamese eatery is still doing what it does best, through all the tumult of COVID-19.

You can grab your favourite bowls, a serving of deep fried cauliflower, or even some pantry essentials, from the shopfront on Goodwood Road.

You can read our profile of the business here, and you can visit the shop for takeaway on Thursday and Friday between midday and 2pm, or 4pm ’til 7pm.

Shop the range on offer at their website.


 

MONDAY’S

Coffee is still a must, and we hope by now you’ve found a way to brew your own quality cup at home.

If that is the case, you know you’re going to need some decent beans, and Monday’s coffee store has still got you.

You can stop by the store if you’re in the city (though they’re closed over Easter), or you can also order via the website.

Monday’s is also hosting an Easter sale right through ’til Easter Monday: buy a kilo bag of beans and get $10 off your order.

NATHAN BAKES

When in doubt – cupcake!

Adelaide’s cupcake connoisseurs over on Grenfell Street are swinging into action with free delivery – no minimum order – within the CBD Monday-Friday. What’s that? You don’t live in the city? Well, we pitty you and so do Nathan Bakes because they’re doing free delivery with a $20 min order value outside of the CBD. More details can be found on their Facebook page, with the daily flavours posted up each morning.

Nathan Bakes is located at 2/39 Grenfell St, Adelaide, call 0449 166 550 and visit their website: www.nathanbakes.com.


NICE PICKLES

‘Pickles’ doesn’t do them justice. Neither does ‘nice’, however Nice Pickles new “Table Pickles” have arrived and are home delivering to improve your pantry by a significant per cent.

We tried these pickles for the first time last week and can confirm they were exquisite. We’ve eaten at Attica (bragging?) and these pickles – served with a shard or two of parmigiano reggiano and a South Australian-made cacciatore from Lucia’s – was a better, more curious and emotionally-satisfying dish than eight out of the ten courses we had at that very posh restaurant. Perhaps we’ve just got peasant tastes.

All of Nice Pickles heroes – Jerk Beans and Good Time Brine – are able to be purchased online and if you’re new to the Nice Pickles brand then do yourself a favour and tuck into a mixed pack which features a lucky dip pickle – not currently on the menu!

Shop the lot at nicepickles.com


 

NIDO

Hyde Park pasta bar Nido has made the pivot towards takeaway, as well as orienting some of its kitchen capacity toward creating pantry-style takeaway items.

ORSO & WILLMOTT’S GASTRONOMIA

From one of our top five – maybe two – chefs, Andre Ursini comes a deft offering of the best of his Orso restaurant. Andre has been working on a 300 year plan for some time and, well, we might need different kind of leaders after this mess; ones capable of thinking and organising for the longterm.

PIZZA E MOZARELLA 

Pirie Street restaurant Pizza e Mozzarella Bar is well known for its slow-fermented dough and secret sauce, which, when combined, make one of the city’s best pizzas.

The COVID-19 shutdown has forced the restaurant into a takeaway retreat, but co-owner of Pizza e Mozzarella and Chicken & Pig, Natalie Albany says she’s keen to help people cook restaurant-quality pizzas in their own homes. We cover it in more detail over here.

The meal kits dubbed “ISO KITS” include 4X 72-hour slow-fermented dough balls, pizza sauce, fresh mozzarella, basil and cooking instructions and will set you back $30 (you can also order DIY ISO Cocktail kits).

“We’re still offering takeaway and delivery but I thought families are going to be home and it’s a good opportunity for kids to cook with their parents – that’s how I learned with my mum and my grandma,” says Natalie.

“This is a humble way to stay focused and committed to our business and our motto: we want people to feel happy when they eat, and I hope that’s what we can achieve when people make our pizzas at home.”

The team at SCULL has just launched SCULL Booch Club – a subscription service that will deliver to your door a monthly dose of kombucha to keep your spirits up while in isolation.

“For us at Stem, we believe our staff to be our family and we are looking into all possible avenues to drive business and protect our casual staff members through this time,” says Lachlan Farmer – one of the founders of Stem. “We hope the community can continue to support us to support our staff so that Adelaide doesn’t lose the great momentum it has built in its dining and hospitality scene over the last few years.”

We love Stem’s simple message and strong stance on reducing their capacity of what we can confirm is a generously sized restaurant.

“transition to takeaway!”

  • introduction of a new takeaway menu, including old favourites and some additional rustic, generous and homely dishes to warm your stomach and your soul (think hearty soups and stews with wood-oven baked bread and house-made butter, lasagnas etc)
  • curb-side pick up (we drop it to your car window on Register St.)
  • delivery options currently being investigated – keep an eye on our socials


 

Staff and owners delivering pizzas from Sunny’s

SUNNY’S

Sunny’s Pizza, you scared us there for a moment.

After announcing earlier on in this ordeal that the city’s favourite clubstraunt would be closing indefinitely, the Benevolent Gods of Pizza and Good Times has smiled upon us and the Sunny’s crew has announced they will be slinging pies once again, accompanied by a selection of fine and fizzy drops from the bar.

There are many ways to access Sunny’s in this latest development. You can browse the offering via apps Bopple (click through for a look) and Uber Eats, and you can also order over the phone at 0455 522 356. You can pick your pizza order up yourself, or, if you opt for home delivery one of the friendly Sunny’s staff will deliver to your door.

TAKEAWAY AT THE BAY

What luck for you, if you’re the type to hover around Glenelg’s Marina Pier taking your time in deciding from which eatery to buy your oysters and beer (just us?) – the Pier’s eateries have banded together to provide a full suite of offerings to their dearly missed cohort of regular punters.

Head over to the Marina Piers’ Takeaway at the Bay website and browse the menus of Sammy’s on the Marina, Ellenika Taverna, Asian Flavour House, Luciano’s, and the Oyster Bar. Veloce Paninotecca are also open for those stopping by with a need for caffeine.

Delivery and pick up options vary between the venues.


 

T BAR

T BAR have opened their warehouse to the public with a shopfront in house, set up so that tea lovers can either call ahead and place an order, then drive up to the door and collect.

“Stay calm & drink tea has never been so relevant in our lifetime!” says co-founder of T Bar, Peggy Veloudos. We couldn’t agree more.

THOMAS FARMS KITCHEN

Thomas Farms has not had the best run in recent years, suffering extensive damage to their abattoir during a fire in 2018, but the company is back on its feet and ready to serve. In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, their meal kit arm, Thomas Farms Kitchen, is delivering recipes and produce directly to your door.

Head over to the Thomas Farms Kitchen website to browse the menu and select a kit you’re interested in, or, if you’d rather leave the decision-making up to the TF team, select from these meal plan options.


THE VILLAGE BAKER

Located in Black Forest and Burnside Village, The Village Baker is now offering a home-delivery service to anyone within an 8km radius of their stores.

There is an $8 delivery charge and a $50 minimum order – but think of how happy you’ll be after eating 12 sausage rolls.

Place your order via the website, and connect with the business via Facebook and Instagram.

My name is Alix and I’m the owner of Wasai Japanese Kitchen. We’d love to be included on your list of restaurants. At this stage we are offering 20% off our full menu for takeaway and hoping to be on UberEats by the end of the week (if we don’t go on lockdown before then😫). Customers can order via phone or leave a message on Facebook or Instagram with their order and mobile number and our manager will call them back. We can also bring the order to their car if they pull up in front of our garage.

Kind Regards,
ALIX YUMITA
