Australian Restaurant
“Orana, which means “welcome” in some Aboriginal languages, is an intimate space home to Chef and Owner Jock Zonfrillo’s findings, philosophy and cuisine from over 16 years of research and exploration of Australian land, produce, people and history. Taking his curiosity and respect for the Aboriginal people, the oldest surviving culture on earth, Jock celebrates all elements of Australia – from the ancient to the modern – and in the process has created a cuisine that is uniquely his own. The Aboriginal philosophy to heal and be healed by the land and to always give back more than you take, strongly influences Zonfrillo’s culinary philosophy. ”

Bar
“LATIN MUSIC AND DANCING. One of Adelaide’s multicultural lounge bars complete with a mix of Moroccan themed music and interior styling, Casablabla is great for those who like to enjoy a drink and some tapas any night of the week. Located on Leigh Street (just off of Hindley Street) in the heart of Adelaide, Casablabla is a hotspot for those who appreciate Latin culture. Particularly busy on Friday and Saturday nights, you can see live bands, DJs, the occasional bongo set and even snake charmer! Casablabla is a truly unique place within the Adelaide bar and restaurant scene and well worth a try. ***My favourite place for a boogie to live Latino beats and watching couples dance Salsa”
