COFFEE IN MY HOOD
There are a host of great places to get coffee in Parkside Adelaide.

GROCERIES IN MY HOOD
Wonder where to find gluten-free food in Adelaide? Local free eater Rob picks out

HANGING IN MY HOOD
When looking for things to do in Parkside Adelaide, locals suggest
Adelaide Studios, 226 Fullerton Road
“The South Australian Film Corporation’s buildings are a landmark in Parkside. Another venerable institution is the Earl of Leicester - a backstreet gem."
GIFTS IN MY HOOD
Looking for something unusual as a gift from Adelaide?
Head to The Mexican Shop, 69 Unley Rd

EATING IN MY HOOD
Parkside has so many places to eat, but our local picks one of his favourites:
Namaste Nepalese, 41 George St
"They have so many awards, they can barely fit them all on their walls. Deliciously original, the tandoori barramundi is a must.”
