The South Africa of chef Duncan Welgemoed's childhood was the original inspiration for both the menu and the exuberant design at Africola but a new focus on the flavours of the Maghreb and beyond only underscores its true guiding principle: fun. Rare is the restaurant in Africa (or Adelaide, or anywhere else for that matter) that so successfully melds such a multitude of influences with confident seasoning and a crisp grasp of contemporary cooking. The textural complexity of biryani carrots, baked with yoghurt then smoked, the give of leeks charred gooey and juiced up with white anchovy and the fire of 'nduja, the brilliance of the spicing in beef ribs hot and tender from the fire pit - all of these things designate Africola as a restaurant to be reckoned with (as does a natural-leaning wine list that celebrates the edgiest of local producers), yet it wears its accolades lightly. An edge of insouciance from the witty staff fits the picture perfectly.
