Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

Impromptu lunch? Calling it a night? Soi 38 offers superior Thai for the discerning city nomad

The original Soi 38 is in Bangkok – a hyperactive congregation of food stalls firing up about 6pm and running deep into the night. Here in Adelaide the tradition continues. The venue isn’t a stall, however – it’s a rather stylishly kitted-out shopfront, with polished boards, black-lacquered furniture and a garish chandelier bringing some kitsch to the kitchen. All things local, seasonal and ethical occupy the mindset: expect free-range everything (chicken, eggs, pork), grass-fed beef and local line-caught seafood. It mightn’t stay open until the wee smalls, but some crisp kradook moo tod glua (garlic pork ribs) at 9pm is hard to beat.
