Sprouts – Adelaide, SA

We discovered this place a couple of years ago when we were in Adelaide and when we were planning this trip to Adelaide we were very excited to go back to this restaurant. I can’t remember what we ate here last time, but I know it was great – the food really blew us away as it was good quality imaginative food that was also vegetarian! The menu this time was a little disappointing as four of the eight or so mains were burgers. While veggie burgers do have their place, I would have thought that one would have been sufficient on a menu in a restaurant! However, we managed to find other things that we wanted to eat! We started with the house platter which included bread, roasted veggies, salad, olives and crispy veggie balls and a yoghurt sauce. Yum, yum, yum. Those crispy veggie balls (although deep fried) are really good! For mains, Martin had the maize and ricotta hotcake stack – which was huge and almost defeated him! While I had the spinach and ricotta cannelloni which also had some sort of roasted nut in it that I can’t remember, and the nut flavour really made it special… I think it is one of the best cannelloni I have ever eaten! We also ordered a side of garlic potatoes – I simply can’t go past potatoes and these came roasted with the perfect amount of garlic. I could have eaten the whole plate myself! This is a great restaurant and I would highly recommend a visit if you are anywhere near Adelaide!
