Kang Kong, Adelaide

Our restaurant critics' picks of the latest and best eats around the country right now: Kang Kong, Adelaide.

Taking a lead from the inventive take on Asian street food at Sydney's Mr Wong and Melbourne's Chin Chin, Adelaide restaurateurs Rob Parsons (of Treasury on King William) and Ron Kohli (Holy Guacamoly, Coffylosophy, Chocolatree) have cleverly transformed a former bank office into the bustling Kang Kong. The menu's best examples have chef Matt Miles taking ideas from many cultures - Malay, Korean, Japanese, Filipino, Thai. Try salmon poached in miso with dengaku, kimchi and spring onion pancakes, and spring rolls packed with roast duck, black fungus, pickled carrot and hoisin-ginger dipping sauce. A dessert of roasted banana panna cotta with pandan leaf meringue is also one to try. When night falls, the adjacent laneway becomes pop-up bar Gypsy Dragon, with strings of lights illuminating walls dressed in graffiti-style Asian motifs, while a mobile bar cart offers curious cocktails with herbal ingredients such as bitter gourd tea, liquorice, chrysanthemum powder and aloe vera.

Kang Kong, 44 Waymouth St, Adelaide, (08) 7226 5255
