Jamface By Poh is a cosy, eclectic and kitschy little cafe located in the Adelaide Central Market serving up brunch and a variety of baked goods all made from scratch.

Owner Poh Ling Yeow is best known as runner up of series 1 Masterchef and host of television series Poh’s Kitchen and Poh & Co.

The venue is decorated in a homely mismatched fashion reminiscent of your grandma’s house with Poh’s own art works hanging on the wall.

Every Friday night they hold Crunch Club which is a set menu dinner. This week Poh herself hosted an Asian themed dinner in conjunction with the Oz Asia Festival.

Jamface By Poh sparkling water

Complimentary drink on arrival made of sparkling water and pear juice.

Jamface By Poh chicken wings

Chicken wings with fried curry leaves. The meat on the chicken wings were so soft and tender and just fell away from the bone so easily. The leaves were crispy little bursts of curry flavour.

Jamface By Poh tuna carpaccio

Tuna carpaccio with pink lady apple, ginger orange dressing, Szechuan pepper and herbs. The dressing was really fresh and tangy with a lovely citrus punch. Paired with the thinly sliced sweetness of pink lady apples it really complimented the beautiful and delicate tuna.

Jamface By Poh pork belly

Dongpo pork. Mahogany glazed pork belly with pickled radish and spring onion. The pork belly was so soft and moist that you could cut it with a spoon and the layer of rich delicious fat just melted in the mouth. The soy broth was mildly sweet and light on the palate and the pickled radishes added crunch.

Jamface By Poh beef rendang floss parcels

Beef rendang floss parcels with sticky turmeric rice and pandan coconut lace crepe. The beef floss was a mixture of sweet and spicy. I found the rice a little bit heavy and stodgy for my taste.

Jamface By Poh chilled tofu

Chilled tofu with fried whitebait, medium boiled egg, fried shallot and spring onion. The tofu was silky and smooth and I really loved the crunchy fried whitebait but I think I would have preferred this dish served warm.

Jamface By Poh pandan sago pudding

Pandan sago pudding with coconut milk. Now everybody knows that I am not usually a fan of Asian desserts. I find them bland and boring but my last few experiences have really changed my opinion on them. The pandan was sweet and slightly nutty. Mixed with the coconut milk it made a really lovely mellow dessert that I really quite enjoyed.

Jamface By Poh mocha

I finished off dinner with a weak mocha in usual Miss L fashion and it was surprisingly really good. The milk was nicely steamed with good texture and had lovely creamy thin layer of froth on top.

Jamface By Poh serves classic dishes with a twist that Poh is so well known for. Using quality ingredients available from different stalls in the Central Market the food is simple and well executed leaving the ingredients to shine on their own.

    How is the seating at crunch club? Do you get your own table or is it communal dining, where everyone sits at a big table together?

      The stall is cosy with about 5 tables. We had our own table of 3 but there was also a larger table of 5 available.
