Tutto Ku, The Playhouse Bistro

Your reviewer has always known it as the Bistro but some research has uncovered that the Bistro that serves the Adelaide Festival Centre "Dunstan" Playhouse actually changed its name to "Tutto Ku" some time in 2005. The Café attached to the bistro is the "Mutandi Ku" Café. The names are Aboriginal Kaurna language names for "Watching Room" and "Eating Room". Both rooms look out over the Torrens river. Tutto Ku is more for drinks and finger food and Mutandi Ku has more substantial meals.

The hot chocolate at Tutto Ku came in glass with white froth and sprinkle of chocolate powder on top and a marshmallow. The flavour was rich enough and a pleasant start to an evening. It cost four dollars.

The performance at the Space that evening was Mitchell Butel "Killing Time" as part of the Adelaide Cabaret Festival. This was a polished performance with great musical arrangements. Mitchell was accompanied by a trio of musicians and he provided a full programme of show tune, jazz standards and lesser known but entertaining songs.
