La Taberna is a hip cool South American influenced restaurant on Rundle Street that is bound to cause a buzz. With food and drinks during the early evening turning into a Salsa dance bar later in the night it’s already attracting a crowd who love their food and love to dance.
The food is fresh and tasty, corn on the cob with a parmesan coating is juicy, sweet and moreish. Wash this down with a freshly made Margaretta in a heavy square glass with thick salt rim and a generous lime slice and the tempo is set for a fun night. The house cider is also one of the best ciders that we’ve tasted in a while and there is also traditional Mexican beer on tap.
After this fine introduction, it’s time to step up the heat just a little with a jalapeno popper wrapped in prosciutto. Wash that down with a Cava Sparkling wine for a mouth fresh experience.
We followed that with a crunchy yet soft vegetarian taco, full of flavour and freshness. Fresh is word that we hear thrown around a lot tonight and is the mark of the restaurant. Good genuine food served by friendly and enthusiastic staff. As we settle into a plate of delicious chorizo paella and an Aperol Espumante, the live band starts a samba session in the front window, prompting many in the room to try out their favorite dance moves.
This family owned and run restaurant is sure to become a hit as the weather warms up and word gets out about the food and atmosphere. Olé!
La Taberna is located at 281 Rundle Street, Adelaide
