Mandoo, The Rolling Pin Bakery, Roll ‘N on Bower

Mandoo Korean Dumplings

A short walk up Bank Street, opposite the Adelaide Railway Station, is Mandoo Korean Dumplings.  From the outside, a small and unassuming shopfront, but inside is warm and welcoming with a fair amount of seating for a small space.

Mandoo Korean Dumplings

Mandoo features handmade Korean dumplings with chicken, pork, vegetable or kim chi fillings.  The flavours are very delicate, and the dumplings are available fried or steamed.  All dumplings come with pickled vegetables, green salad with a creamy dressing and cold mashed potato.  The chef makes the dumplings at the front counter so can watch your meal being prepared.

Roll ‘N on Bower

Roll ‘N on Bower Road, Semaphore is a very popular Thai/Vietnamese cafe specialising in Banh Mi.  Cold rolls, Laksa and other street style foods are available but we always visit for the banh mi and Vietnamese coffee.  The best food experiences have drinks that are equal to the food and are usually house made.
