I've just come back from Adelaide a few days ago for University Games. It was an interesting place I reckon.
The good things were:
- Stayed right next to beach
- Good time with friends
- Found this awesome chocolate shop (Bracegirdles)
- Shops close at 5pm weekends and 9pm weekdays (blasphemy D:)
- Not much to do ..
Rather than talking about that~ I found two places that I liked in Adelaide :D
An amazing chocolate shop and a fairly decent restaurant~
|The Chocolate Cafe is called 'Bracegirdle'. |
It gives off a warm welcoming atmosphere when you enter :)
Oh and the rich smell of delicious chocolate too~
I ended up coming here twice :9
|They have this at the front of their store...|
I was somewhat skeptical..
Because you know, when places put these up; it's usually not that great.
However this place lived up to it :)
|As you enter you can see their wall full of chocolate delights :O|
Absolutely heaven for anyone seriously ._.
|Then when you get to the counter... You see these bite sized chocolates D:|
I ended up trying this one.
It was chocolate and caramel but was very nice :D
The shell broke apart quite easily in my mouth and everything melded together quite nicely~
|Bracegirdle's Cooler Bag: $15 normally. $5 if spent over $50 and free if over $75|
I got it for free... So yeah you can tell I bought a lot of chocolate :\
|White, Milk, Dark, Darker Chocolate: $9.00 or $12.50|
These are the chocolates I bought!
They're blocks of chocolate for my friends in Melbourne.
Trying to stop myself from eating these T.T
|Mamma Carmela is a restaurant of mixed reviews ~ |
Reviews said only good pizza.
End of the night.. I reckon the pizza wasn't that great but other things were~
|Seafood Platter: $33.00|
Chips were below standard and seafood was okay?
|Gourmet Calzone $18.90|
It's basically their Gourmet Pizza in Calzone form.
The Calzone itself didn't have empty air inside, full of ingredients and flavour.
Stop #1: Bracegirdle's House of Fine Chocolate
Best chocolate in Adelaide? I think yes. In Melbourne? It's in the top chocolate places for me! :D
Amazing chocolate products, great service and awesome atmosphere ~
It's a must try! Cannot miss this if you're in Adelaide (not like there's anything else there).
They have a few stores but the one I went to was in Glenelg.
They are at: 31 Jetty Road, Glenelg, SA 5045
Stop #2: Mamma Carmela Restaurant and Pizza Bar
Not a bad restaurant. I guess this place is good depending on time and what you choose? Seafood platter and some Pizzas weren't good choices. Calzone and Focaccia were good choices. It depends on what you order here in my honest opinion. Service was okay, not the best though.
Not a bad place. I reckon try it out if you're ever in Glenelg, South Australia.
They're at: 4 Jetty Road, Glenelg, SA 5045
Til my next post,
