Restaurant Orana. I first heard about Restaurant Orana when I was watching My Kitchen Rules 3 years ago and the head chef Zonfrillo was a guest judge. It showed a clip of Orana and how it was one of the best restaurants in the world. It has been on my bucket list ever since then so when I went to Adelaide recently I knew I would have to call in.

I am so glad I did! Not only was it one of the best meals I have ever had in my entire life, it was such an amazing experience in itself. As soon as you step into the dining room, you are so well taken care of by the amazing wait staff.

We went for the lunch seating and as soon as you arrive they start bringing course after course to the table. It is a tasting menu and it is so innovative and unusual. But not just for the sake of being different, all of the ingredients used go so well together and compliment each other beautifully.

One of the courses had ants as a garnish and usually, I would not eat this. Especially since I don’t eat meat, I’m not even if you cab eat ants being vegetarian, but I trusted the chefs so much by the time it got to that course that I tried it and it was delicious! (more…)
