On the ‘quieter’ end of the Adelaide CBD is Hutt Street also known as the ‘Village in the City’ which is littered with restaurants, cafes, take away shops and popular venues for breakfast, coffee, lunch or dinner. Some well known places along the strip include Chianti, Kenji, The Mac Factory and Au Matin Calme.
CB and I had our eyes set on some hearty Italian food at Alfonso’s choosing to grab a seat outside inside their undercover tent whilst basking in the winter’s sunlight.
Teapot for 2: lemongrass; $4.90
Fettucine con pollo: tender chicken pieces, avocado, roasted capsicum in a camembert rose cheese sauce; $17.90
A huge and generous serving of pasta was placed in front of me; there was no way I could finish it but that didn’t mean that I wouldn’t give it a shot! The pasta was cooked well and the thick rose sauce coated each strand well with plentiful chicken pieces and avocado thrown in. The pasta won out but I left satisfied with my carb quota for the week fulfilled! (Note to self: share the pasta to prevent self going into a food comatose state.)
Saltimbocca (open toasted sub) pollo: chicken tenderloin, avocado, cheese, lettuce, tomato relish; $9.90
