I have been to Adelaide many times and on this trip decided to try Kaffana. Firstly, it is not easy to find the street it's on as it's off the main thoroughfare and there were other restaurants along the same stretch competing for our attention. Our hearts sank when we saw that the place was full but the nice wait staff found us two seats on a long table sharing with another party next to the main entrance.
We ordered the baby back ribs and it didn't take long for our orders to arrive. The ribs were well season and cooked though I thought it was a little dry. The magic is in the seasoning rub. I have been to so many restaurants and tried so many grilled dishes, but never have I tried one which is so flavourful and aromatic. On the second night - yes back to back dinners - we had the special platter. The beef was perfectly cooked with just the right amount of charring on the edges, the chicken on the skewer was fantastic, the pork sausage roll was just heavenly. The lobster tail was so-so but that's what happens when you grill seafood.
Oh, did I mention that the potato salad was done to perfection? Traditional Serbian style potato salad but not too vinegary with the right mix of tangy vs sweet. The slaw was good too but I felt sorry that I ignored it the whole night just focusing on the main star.
Need I say more? I was in a meat lovers' paradise.
