26 Dec The Little Hunter
If you go wandering around the CBD’s frenzied laneways, you may happen to stumble across a little hidden gem that is The Little Hunter.
Nestled between the bustling night life of Hindley Street and North Terrace lies a premium steakhouse and ale bar serving the finest cuts in proportions that will satisfy any hunger.
As you enter, you are thrown into a rustic, tin-shed like den, that of which you would expect to find in a country town but without losing any of the hustle and bustle of city life.
The atmosphere is casual and family friendly with a backdrop of floor to ceiling exposed stone and brick walls and distressed wooden features.
The menu is locally sourced allowing The Little Hunter to showcase the quality of meat, beer and wine South Australia produces.
Kirkpatrick oysters. The barbecue sauce was tangy and robust in flavour and the oyster was soft and delicate.
Mussels sautéed with garlic, white wine and a touch of cream. The mussels were plump and juicy with a creamy texture while the white wine and cream complemented the light seafood flavour nicely.
Roasted Moroccan lamb rump served with sweet potato mash. The lamb was extremely succulent and tender. The Moroccan spices were light and mild and easy on the palate.
Tiramisu. The layers of cream, mascarpone and sponge were rich and creamy with hints of coffee throughout.
Coconut and lemongrass crème brulee. The custard was smooth but very faint in flavour.
The Little Hunter is your place if you are looking for a good old fashioned steak, although the menu lacks a little in creativity and is not very unique.
