Mandoo Korean Dumplings, Adelaide

Panfried mandoo dumplings

After a day or two of wandering in Adelaide, I have discovered the secret of living here: Don’t work 9-5. During my lunch break, the mall poured with the hustle and bustle of people. I wandered past a little Korean shop filled to the brim. I order a dish of dumplings from a old smiling man at the counter who hand makes each one. Mandoo dumplings come from Korea, with a slightly tougher dumpling shell than gyoza and filled with meat and/or vegetables. There’s plenty of fillings to choose from like a chocolate box of all sorts. And they’re fresh and delicious. I would have liked to enjoy a mix of steamed and fried and give the kimchi filled ones a go, so maybe next time.

And because sadly I couldn’t devour an entire pizza on my own, I settled for a chicken caesar for one, a coke zero and my Wallpaper guide to Hong Kong.  A delicious salad with tender slices of chicken, crunchy croutons and creamy homemade caesar sauce – but definitely trying out the pizza next time.

Adelaide 2011

After a few days of Adelaide, I am back! And I am glad to be home to a city that almost never sleeps, with 24 hour emergency McDonald’s, late night Mamak and 7-elevens. In the city with the reputation of closing early, it really is a gorgeous and peaceful place – with churches, ol’ school pubs and zero traffic. Spending most of my time working and on my own, I only managed a little bite here and there….
