Royal Croquet Club is the notorious B.I.G for its unique atmosphere, cool setup, next level street food and variety of bevvys. This Is Radelaide was lucky enough to try the different eats of RCC, varying from Pithouse charcoaly goodness to scrumptious Italian dessert from Mangia Mangia.
While sipping on some beautiful SA wines, we sat back in our rustic setup at Pithouse and got in amongst the cascade of food we were about to devour. The best feeds from each stall were all fantastic, but there were some that left an impressionable taste in our mouths and hearts.
The BBQ Jerk Chicken from Jamaican Me Crazy was an absolute cracker for the meat-lovers; a crunchy and flavoursome dish packed with delish rice and coleslaw on the side, what's not to love!
Gin Long Canteen provided a tasty Seafood Glass Noodle Salad in the cutest disposa-bowl (get it), suited for anyone who loves some coriander and seafood.
The smoked salmon salad from Pithouse was to die for though; charcoaled salmon is ingeniously paired with fresh lettuce and smoked tomato drizzled in a creamy dressing: mouth-watering.
The Pork Banh-Mi Vietnamese Roll from the famous Banh-Mi was everything you want in a roll and more. If you've been searching for the perfect vietnamese roll then don't give this joint a miss!
Straight outta fryer: the perfectly executed warm Zeppole from Mangia Mangia was topped with vanilla ice-cream, chocolate ganache and roasted almond flakes #drools. It was hard to share this one but Nonnas around the world would be proud!
The finale was our favourite cold-plate ice-cream joint Scroll! Everyone knows we love a good dessert here at Radelaide and this one takes the cake (or ice-cream we should say). Pav-Lover and Nutter Butter Biscuit had all the patrons remaking that infamous 'When Harry Met Sally' scene, 'cause damn they're good.
Overall a wonderful night spent at Royal Croquet Club with great laughs, amazing food and glam vibes, if you haven't been already go and check out RCC for yourself, you won't be disappointed! Plenty of parking options around Victoria Square and if you use Uber App you get your first Fringe Festival ride for free. Thanks to RCC management and Pithouse staff for having us, we'll be round again soon!
