One of Adelaide’s best kept secrets is Taldy-Kurgan, a Russian cafe in the Adelaide Central Markets. They have the best piroshki I’ve had in ages, and honey dough sweets that are to die for. You can buy a full meal there, from breakfast meals to dinner meals and the food is hot and plentiful. The cafe is run by a Kazakstan family and service is polite and efficient.

A review in the Adelaide Advertiser from the 18th August, 2004, says:

“All-day Russian breakfast for $7.50 is a fluffy omlette dotted with bacon, dill and onion plus three salads.” Dishes around $6.50

Last time I ate there, I got two beef and onion piroshki for $6 total, and they lasted me two meals. The opening hours of the cafe are Market day from 7.30am; Unlicensed; No bookings, Kids welcomed. You can reach them/find them Ph: 0404 451 648; Stall 3 Central Market, Grote St, ADELAIDE 5000. The cafe is also part of the Central Market Tour.
