[eat] Miranda Restaurant, Adelaide

This is my review of a gorgeous estate we stopped off at for lunch when we were roadtripping around the Barossa Valley in Adelaide. It was on the way to our next destination but we really stopped because the restaurant is ranked #2 in the Barossa Valley, and we needed a bit of a fancy lunch to soak up all the alcohol the girls had “tasted”.

Everything from the watermelon and mint sorbet accompanying the prawns to the homemade gnocchi to the aged muscat that went sooo well with the affrogato, went down like a treat. And here are the pictures to prove it.

Pearl barley arancini with peas & mint served with raspberry aioli ($8.00)

Prawn & haloumi skewers with watermelon, black pepper and mint sorbet ($14.90)

Salt and pepper sumac squid with lemon aioli ($14.90/$22.90)

Homemade gnocchi with gorgonzola, LME Aged Cobweb and walnut cream ($19.90/$22.90)

Nonna’s beef ragu with orecchiette ($19.90/$22.90)

300g chargrilled beef tenderloin served with plum shiraz glaze, potatoes, braised leeks and beer battered onion rings ($33.00)

Affogato with roasted almond ice cream with a shot of coffee & Leone Aged Muscat ($10.90)

Chocolate lasagna ($10.90)

Poached peach with vanilla bean in cream ($10.90)

The food was perfect (judged by the four of us), the owners were friendly and the old-fashion interiors, complete with the wooden rafters and dungeon doors, made for an excellent place to spend the afternoon with friends.

Don’t let me get away with having the homemade gnocchi all to myself and go check it out for yourself.
