Visiting the Barossa for a long weekend is a real treat. Lots of things to drink, eat and capture for Facebook as well as chat to locals who are friendly and welcoming. FermentAsian is the restaurant to cap off your great day. It is set in an old house surrounded by well kept gardens and a memorial park. The service is warm - the husband of chef Tuoi is a delight - while other members of the team are just as pleasant. No airs and graces here: just warming help and insights into the menu and very extensive wine list containing many wines you will be hard pressed to find anywhere else. You can have many by the glass. The dining areas are cosy but then you are located in an old house. I have eaten here three times in the space of a month so I have a good 'feel' for what works food wise. You get solid choice - the dishes are basically Asian with a unique chef's twist, which works. The Betel Leaves and pork belly are stand-outs as are the salad dishes. However the Angus beef ribs and duck dishes are a tad 'stewy' for my tastes but that could be me. The sweets are excellent and tasty. My only whinge about this restaurant is that the portions are small and should be larger (food ingredients are cheap, right?) That said, the overall experience is super positive: $120 for two including wine is reasonable given the quality of the fare. Tuoi, the chef/owner recently won chef of the year status. Trust prices don't go up!
