On the Road-Adelaide to Sydney

Hello Christian,
Adelaide is my home town, and there are some great restaurants from malaysian laksa stands in the central market, to more snazzy places - depending on what you are interested in.
I recommend you get down to McLaren Vale, and spend some time eating and drinking down there.. It is fantastic and the food is great.

OXO cubes - What other choice is out there?

Thank you all for your replies. I will hunt out your Touch of Taste or the ones from the supermarket as my back up.

OXO cubes - What other choice is out there?

Hello Chowhounders,
I am interested to know if any of you have found an option to the humble stock cube. I don't always have time to make my own stock and hate the super salty cubes, but there seems no alternative?
Can any of you help?

Thank you!

48 hours in Chicago

Thank you for your reply, I agree, my description was vague, but was hoping for not being too restrictive with my demands, but I do understand... Chicago is a large place.
We have been to Topolobampo this evening, and we thought it was nice, but not as amazing as some of the reviews we have read. I will look at the other suggestions that you have linked me to for our next dinner. We will be looking for something a little more casual, buzzy, and youthful!
Thanks again.

48 hours in Chicago

We are on a culinary road trip - next stop Chicago. I am really excited about this city, and have heard great things about it. We have a reservation at Topolobampo for tonight, but then we are open to suggestions! Good bars, music, and snacks are all of interest!
Thank you in advance for any tips.

[London] Great food for a special weekend

Hello,
I am from London, and can suggest the following places for good food, relaxed atmosphere, and all not in the West End.
SOHO
1. Barrafina - Spanish tapas at a marble bar. You can't reserve, but it is worth it, and you can have a bottle of wine while you wait.
2. Polpo. Venetian small plates. Again, can only reserve at lunch, but the atmosphere is really great and buzzy. They have also just opened a place in the restaurant upstairs from the French House, a great thespian pub in Soho too.. Worth checking out.
4. HIX. Two restaurants, but HIX is responsible for creating a classic cool Brit style of cooking.
EAST END
4. Bistrotheque. In the east end of London, but very unique and great fun.
5. St Johns Bread & Wine . You already are going, but this is my favourite restaurant. They also have a great lunch time only place in a hard to find location called Rochelle's Canteen. Worth the hunt though.

That should keep you busy for a while at least!
Enjoy. x
