WORDS BY MICHAELA MCGRATH
With the frosty winter mornings now inevitably swallowing Adelaide, who doesn’t turn to their hot chocolate, naughty sweet treats and secret stash of carbs? Answering our shivery prayers, we were beyond excited to tuck in with The Curious Squire for an Eat & Tweet of epic proportions.
Last Thursday the GAT Girls took to North Adelaide to launch The Curious Squire’s new winter warmer menu. Equal parts indulgent and delicious, the new menu showcased Americana classics with a European meets Louisiana twist.
With Adelaide’s foodie fanatics in attendance, we guided our guests through the feel-good culinary experience working alongside head chef Joshua Barry. We kicked off the night sipping on first class drinks before guests were seated for a guided tour through the new menu.
Commencing with a range of starters we couldn’t keep our hands off of the mouth-watering selection. We chowed down on Mac and Cheese Balls and Southern Fried Chicken before kicking it up a notch with Squires’ famed burger range, delish! Sampling sliders of their Curious Burger, Mother Clucker and Happy Cow we were left feeling all kinds of satisfied.
Off the back of the infamous burgers, guests were treated to southern style staples. Texan Chilli, Louisiana Jambalaya, Ribs and fan favourite Pulled Pork tantalised our tastebuds.
Just when we thought we had seen it all, out came dessert. Ridiculously fluffy American Buttermilk Pancakes piled high with vanilla ice cream and Nutella sauce had us drooling. But even pancakes could keep us away from the Deep Fried Oreo Stack. Triple stacked Oreos, roughly crumbed and deep fried – talk about a cheat day!
After sampling every ounce of the carb loaded menu as we could, we left with full bellies and even fuller hearts, an intimate evening of good food, good company and overall good vibes.
We’re loving everything that The Curious Squire is dishing up and are thrilled to announce that there are still a few spare seats on their exclusive Sea & Vines tour coaches!
