Two Pot Screamer celebrates 1st birthday with new Australiana menu showcasing nostalgic foodie classics

From chiko rolls to pavlova, Two Pot Screamer’s new menu will be dishing up those quintessential Aussie flavours we all know and love.

Rundle Street’s Two Pot Screamer has quickly become a dining staple in Adelaide’s East End. Now, in celebration of its first birthday, it’s giving you another reason to mosey along to the venue, introducing a brand new menu with a focus on Australian foodie classics.

Serving up everything from prawn cocktails to pavlova, new Head Chef Miles Davies is overseeing the restaurant’s revamped menu, which he hopes will evoke some strong nostalgia from diners about the casual, fast, and fun food they grew up eating in the 70s and 80s.

“A lot of new restaurants are opening but they are all very similar. I see it all the time: a new place opens and it’s got a cookie-cutter menu that’s got very similar dishes to other venues,” says Miles.

“Not a lot of venues in Australia would think to dress up a chiko roll or fish finger and put it on their menu, and I think that’s what I love about Two Pot Screamer.

“It takes these classic dishes, gives you everything you know and love about them, but lets you eat it in a way that’s new and fresh, so it doesn’t feel boring or tired.”

Miles is a veteran of Adelaide’s hospitality scene having worked in the kitchens of such lauded restaurants as Golden Boy, Jolley’s Boathouse and the Art Gallery Café.

Two Pot Screamer’s new menu includes some of those archetypal Australian classics such as chiko rolls, fish fingers, and pavlova, alongside more heartier dishes, namely a 500g scotch fillet steak and a roast chicken ballotine with your option of a range of sides.

To really bring back those early memories, Miles has even created a 100’s and 1000’s-themed dessert.

“I’ve created a dish which includes genoise sponge, Chantilly cream, white chocolate ganache and hundreds and thousands,” he says.

“It’s meant to instil some nostalgia without detracting from the quality of the produce and the way it’s presented.”

Penny Hospitality founder Hugo Pedler says ethos of Two Pot, which opened in November last year, is about tapping into nostalgia but also having some fun with it.

“We’ve been open for 12 months now and in that time you really get to road test what works in a restaurant and what doesn’t work,” says Hugo.

“I feel like the restaurant’s driving concept is this playful nostalgia, and it kind of got lost or forgotten.

“What this new menu does is brings it all back to those simple Australian tastes we all grew up with, but with our own fancy twist.”

Alongside the new-look menu, Two Pot’s also serving up a drink’s menu befitting of an outback Aussie pub. Think long neck beers over the bar and some of those old favourites such as Carlton Draught and Coopers on tap.

The venue’s upstairs cocktail bar, known as Refreshment Club, is serving up fun and booze-driven drinks if beer isn’t your cup of tea.

To mark the new food and the milestone birthday, the restaurant is offering a slew of drinks specials including $2 schooners on Fridays between 4-6pm, and $10 margaritas every Saturday in the cocktail bar.
