Africola’s celebrity pull continues with Eric Andre spotted at popular restaurant

Eric Andre is the latest celebrity to dine at Adelaide hotspot Africola, with Chef Duncan Welgemoed snapped with the comedian during his visit to South Australia.

Comedy and culinary worlds collided this week, when boundary-pushing comedian Eric Andre visited Adelaide’s dining hotspot Africola, adding a sprinkle of star power to the restaurant’s already illustrious guestbook. The visit, captured in a memorable snap with Africola’s Chef Duncan Welgemoed, came as Andre tours Australia with his riotously unpredictable “The Eric Andre Show Live,” thrilling audiences across the country with his no-holds-barred comedic style.

Andre, known for his dynamic and highly interactive shows, performed at the Hindley Music Hall on March 1st, contributing to the rich tapestry of talent in Adelaide this month, thanks to the Adelaide Fringe and Adelaide Festival. His shows, a blend of trickery, surreal humor, and outright chaos, have cemented his reputation as one of the most unique voices in American comedy.

Africola has become the go-to dining destination for celebrities touring in South Australia, with names like Justin Vernon of Bon Iver, tennis icon Novak Djokovic, and pop superstar Katy Perry all stopping by to sample Chef Welgemoed’s acclaimed culinary creations. In a twist of fate, when the iconic Foo Fighters visited Adelaide, Africola was too full, leading the popular chef to take the rock legends for exclusive dinner at The Exeter, where he cooked for the group, ensuring the rock legends didn’t miss out on Welgemoed’s famous dishes.

For those intrigued by the celebrity-approved dining experience, Africola beckons with open doors. Additionally, the upcoming Garden Feast at the Garden of Unearthly Delights offers a unique opportunity to experience Duncan Welgemoed’s extraordinary talents. This Monday Duncan will be curating the feast, at the event which is a blend of outdoor dinner party and performance carnival. The feast is a collaboration between New Zealand chefs Rewi SpraggonTama Salive and acclaimed large-scale event producer Rob Eliott who is renowned for festivals like the Taste of AucklandAuckland Restaurant Month, and the Winetopia series.

Set against the magical backdrop of Kadlitpina (Rundle Park), the feast is a celebration of Māori customs and culinary excellence. Further details can be found here:
