Andre's Cucina & Polenta Bar (Frome St., Adelaide)

Heard good things about this place. Supposedly the owner/operator was a contestant on Masterchef. Not that I cared such things; as long as the food is good and the price is reasonable. So bunch of us headed into the city for the polenta experience.

Gnocci as an entree. Nicely done.
Had the right consistency according to the Italian sitting next to me..

Another entree plate to be shared by all of us.

Beef steak. Could've used a bit more of this. Very nicely done.

Polenta with spinach and gorgonzola cheese. Was tasty.

Special polenta with mushroom, pine nuts etc. Was tasty.

Banana donuts for dessert. To be honest, it was a bit boring, though it tasted good.

It came to about 45 bucks per person for 7 people. I had never had polenta before this night. Italian sitting next to me though kept insisting that polenta is for peasants... It felt like a very thick and well cooked rice porridge; ie. glue. Still. I did enjoy dining here.
