Lunch time! Friend and I headed down Rundle Street to grab a decent pub feed and our venue of choice? The Austral Hotel.
Situated on the corner of Bent Street and the newly revamped Rundle Street in amongst boutique stores, pubs, cafes and quirky shops. This hotel is very popular amongst the locals and is always busy on the weekends with live bands and large crowds.
Grilled chicken salad: mixed leaf lettuce, vinegeratte, avocado, olives and sun dried tomatoes; $18.00
For a lunch meal, I’ve gotta say it’s pretty expensive and it wasn’t even that good. I found the chicken to be over cooked and dry, one cube of avocado (at least a few more right?) and one olive with a pip intact! Meh… I’m paying $18.00 for a salad at a pub, a bit pricy in my books… so it would’ve been nice if the chicken was cooked right at the very least. Just sayin’.
Smoked tea duck with Asian greens and rice; $24.00
Expensive lunch with mediocre meals. Time to suss out other places down Rundle Street during lunch hour! 😉
