Location: Inner-South, 27 Unley Rd, Parkside
I love how pubs these days have scrubbed up their menus and decor to become fancy establishments with high-end food and drinks – the Unley is one such example!
Right around the corner from me, this newly refurbished gastro-pub is so warm and inviting with a fireplace upstairs and downstairs. We dined upstairs in the restaurant part of the pub. I’ve always been impressed with the food here. There’s a great range of lunch and dinner options – it was hard deciding between the Pan-fried Gnocchi, Pork 2 ways, The Unley Burger and the usual pub grub such as the Chicken Schnitzel. We ended up getting the special of Chimichurri Steak, as well as a side of fries and Arancini. I was kicking myself for forgetting to order sauce for the steak but surprisingly it did not need it! It was so tasty and perfectly cooked and went well with the corn salad and potato terrine. The truffle, porcini and whipped feta Arancini were also a great flavour combination that get thumbs up from me. For dessert, I absolutely recommend the Salted Dark Chocolate dessert with the vanilla bean icecream – definitely a crowd pleaser.
The set up: 😍😍😍
