Imagine it’s a Saturday night and you’re stuck in a “Where do you wanna eat?” “No, where do you wanna eat?” cycle with your friends that only ends with everyone frustrated and still super hungry. Sound familiar? Well, this winter, the Colonist has you covered with their shiny new menu—so you can spend less time arguing about dinner and more time indulging in some delicious food!
Located in Norwood, the Colonist is a cosy place to get away from the bustling Parade outside. They’re open for breakfast on the weekends until 3pm (the way it should be—so you can get that fry-up and bloody mary hangover cure if you need it) and the fire’s roaring to keep you warm. Their doors are also open for lunch and dinner every day of the week, along with their happy hours (which you can get more info about on their site).
Regulars could probably wax lyrical about the Colonist’s golden oldie dishes, but everyone should get on board with their new menu offerings! They’ve now have a new selection of foraging plates which are great as a starter or even to share over those drinks you’ve bought at happy hour. You can pick from a variety of things, like South Australian haloumi with orange and fennel, baked gnocchi with roasted cherry tomatoes and pancetta, or chilli salt and pepper squid with Asian bean salad.
Is your mouth watering yet? Well, hold on to your knives and forks, ’cause that’s not all! How do you feel about digging into their crispy skinned pan-seared salmon fillet, pressed pork belly with veg and demi glaze, or prawn and crab linguini tossed with cherry tomatoes and fresh herbs?
Uh, yum! Excuse us while we step out for a bite…
So if you ever find yourself wondering where to eat on a Saturday night, where to take mum out for lunch on a Sunday, or looking for a solid smashed avo brekky, swing on by the Colonist at 44 The Parade, Norwood.
