I’ve been telling friends about the Adelaide list that Sash and I are trying to complete. And whenever we make plans to visit one of the places on the list, we send out a mass message to people, asking to see if anyone would like to join us. About 80% of the time we are unsuccessful in getting someone else to join us.
After visiting The Pantry on Egmont, we visited their sister cafe, Ginger’s Coffee Studio. They have the exact same specials board, although the things that were on special were different. I like their bright, chirpy furnishing and the paintings. Similar to the decoration at The Pantry. We especially liked a painting of a map of the local area where the cafe was. If I were to buy a painting from the cafe, it would be that painting. Unfortunately I don’t have a picture of it.
We all made a cautious effort to order different things from the menu so that we could try several different things at once. We ordered their Breakfast Special – a burrito, Lunch Special – kangaroo fillet with sweet potato mash, Ginger’s Burger, and a smoked salmon on potato salad. The guys also got a glass of juice each, Sash an iced chocolate and an iced coffee for myself.
Sash asked for extra chocolate in her iced chocolate, and the guy at the counter decided to chuck in as much chocolate fudge he could into her glass. You should have seen the grin on her face. And if you’re ever at Ginger’s, try one of their juices, their juices were pretty good. I liked the Morning Starter that KZM got.
My burrito came with cheese oozing out of it, although you can’t really see it in the picture. There were generous servings of beans and csabai sausages in it. It may look like it’s on the tiny side, but I couldn’t even finish it. The smoked salmon was good, and we really enjoyed the potato salad that came with it. Juicy burger patty in their tall Ginger’s Burger, not to be eaten with a fork and a knife, but with your hands! Whatever they had used to season their burger patty tasted really good.
The kangaroo fillet was soft and moist. I’ve never had kangaroo meat before, and because Ginger’s had managed to make it taste good, I think I might try kangaroo meat again. The meat was cooked to perfection, pink and juicy in the middle. Sash kept stealing NL’s sweet potato mash too, so that’s a sign that it’s good.
