The Wine Underground, Adelaide [Closed]

Friend and I hit up The Wine Underground for a Champagne Lunch Menu (bottomless champagne, booyeahhh~) on a lovely Saturday afternoon.

Entrée: chef’s selection tasting platter: chicken drumettes, capsicum gazpacho and something something. My memory escapes me!

Crispy skinned Atlantic salmon, rocket panzanella baba ganoush

Char grilled scotch fillet, pomme frites, roast tomato and hollandaise

I order the scotch fillet which comes out well done instead of my preferred medium, but that’s gotta do with the waiter taking our orders… she failed to ask me how I wanted me meat cooked. Nevertheless, although the fillet was slightly small, it was flavorful and went well with the pomme frites (YUM – shame there weren’t more!) and rocket salad. I probably would’ve preferred a red wine jus over the hollandaise though as I found it a bit too heavy for my liking.

Chocolate gateau and chantilly cream

Rich and decadent but not overly sweet! Favourite meal of the day! :)~

Dined using a scoopon deal: $49.00 for two people includes: 3 course lunch and free flowing champagne.

    The steak looks very small though…..discouraged me from going there.

    Anyway, like your reviews~~

      It was small but in hindsight, just enough to get me to a point of ‘nicely full’. Just quickly headed to your blog and looks like you had a nice time there and enjoyed the food too! 🙂

        Yes, I did. But cos I am a big eater~~LOL :D. I still feel it’s not enough for myself to have a main alone. Haha, but my wife loved the place. Anyway, thanks for your reviews. It really gave me some idea on the sizes before I went the other night. 🙂

    Your meal actually looks larger than what we received. We also did the Scoopon and got the salmon and steak. Both the salmon and steak portion were tiny. I wouldn’t want to pay $35 per main. Our dessert was a square of sticky date cake cut out of a slab with no cream or icecream. Was most dissapointing.

    The champagne would have made up for it perhaps if we didn’t have to drive. They would only let us book a Tuesday lunch though and the entire place was packed with people with scoopon’s. (I also did a Scoopon back in Feb and it was much better – so perhaps service and food went downhill as more people tried to use their scoopons)

    Have you used Scoopons at any other places that you would recommend? I used one at the Kings Head that was ok.
