The Curious Squire is an Adelaide hotspot for burgers, BBQ meats, wings, ribs and the sorts, but the restaurant is now expanding its menu to include dishes of a Louisiana influence. Think a modern twist on traditional flavours, while still holding onto a strong South American theme.
“We will be expanding our main menu with a focus on Louisiana cuisine, which has a huge French and Italian influences as its roots,” explains Head Chef Joshua Barry.
“Customers can expect a true dining experience like no other, with real food, done well and paired with impeccable customer service.”
We had a little taste test of the menu last week and were left with our stomachs full to the brim of deelish burgers, spicy wings, crumbed mushrooms, jambalaya and so much more.
Our favourite entree was unarguably the Mac ‘n’ Cheese Balls: a classic, all-American style treat. We probably could have chowed these down by the dozen; their creamy cheese inside provided the perfect textural contrast to the crunch of the crumbed exterior.
The Louisiana-influenced jambalaya was a nice contrast to the rest of the bold American menu at Curious Squire, incorporating rice, veggies, chicken and seafood. With the soft consistency of a risotto and a subtle chilli heat, this main went down a treat.
The best burger, you ask? Well, out of all three we sampled, we actually favoured the vegetarian haloumi burger. This might have had something to do with the amount of meat we’d already consumed at that stage, as we were probably looking forward to something a little less heavy on the stomach. Nonetheless, the squishy haloumi cheese definitely won us over.
And as for desserts, we couldn’t get enough of the rich, deep-fried oreo with ice cream. Again, a very texturally satisfying dish, this mouth-watering dessert was the perfect way to end our dining experience at The Curious Squire.
