All that Fringe-going will definitely make you hungry and thirsty. We ask some of our trusty writers to recommend some good spots.

Quick (When You're On The Run Between Shows)

East End Yiros, 224 Grenfell St: "Probably the best yiros in town! Fast, delicious and licensed." (Lauren Connelly)

Zambrero, 214-216 Rundle St: "You wanted quick? Zambrero's is literally like a factory machine line for burritos. The queue is like a conveyor belt, they pump them out so fast!" (Jonty Czuchwicki)

Cheap (Because You Spent Too Much On Show Tix)

Austin & Austin, 28 Austin St: "A groovy little board game bar that spins vintage records while you can sip on a spiked milkshake and try the fanciest toastie you've ever had." (Tash Loh)

Sukhumvit Soi 38, 54 Pulteney St: "Delicious Thai that is very reasonably priced." (Lauren Connolly)

Snag In A Bag, 116 Hindley St: "Everything you want around the price of $10. A famed institution, Snag In A Bag is your go-to for kebabs, yiros, burgers and of course hot dogs." (Jonty Czuchwicki)

Sit Lo, 30 Bank St: "For only $6.50 you can't go wrong with a small bowl of steaming hot pho when you're down to your last few dollars. Tucked away on Bank Street, this Vietnamese eatery is warm and cosy, offering simple yet fresh dishes." (Melina Scarfo)

The Garden Of Unearthly Delights, Rundle Park: "This is the cheapest bit of entertainment there is, and it's a really good 'between shows' place where you can chill out or grab some incredible food." (Tom Gaffney)

Good For Groups (Hanging With Your Crew Before/After Shows)

Exeter Hotel, 152 Semaphore Rd: "Smack bang in the middle of Rundle Street, between the parklands venues and our most popular comedy venue, Rhino Room." (Lauren Connelly)

Miss Dive Shop, 74 Frome St: "A club/pub-style eatery that's great for a casual hang. Features an impressive cocktail list. Patrons love the ambience and décor." (Jenny Nguyen)

Thanh Thanh, 18 Field St: "Thanh Thanh is THE BOMB! They sell this crispy pork in vermicelli noodle, with delicious broth, and it is so damn good. It takes under ten minutes to get to your table, it costs under $10 and they use all fresh ingredients sourced from the Adelaide Central Markets across the road." (Chris Komorek)

Parsec Cafe, 80 Hindley St: "Arts space/gallery Parsec Cafe is the perfect place to chill with friends. You can't miss its pastel coloured exterior among the grime of Hindley Street. Grab a coffee in a hand-made mug and their avocado and feta on rye is a must-try." (Melina Scarfo)

Pilot Fest, Lotus Lounge: So this boutique music festival is happening on 21 Feb from 12-10pm outside in the laneway and goes even later inside. Sam Walker, Eric The Falcon, No Birds, OISIMA DJs, How Green and more are on the line-up, and mobile food kitchen Top Rank will be there supplying the people with jerk chicken cooked over charcoal (vego and vegan options available). There will be cocktails also.

Fancy (If You're On A Hot Date Or Just Wanna Splurge)

2KW, Level 8, 2 King William St: "Set on a rooftop with Adelaide's strictest dress code, 2KW is the best place in Adelaide to spend $18 on an espresso martini." (Jonty Czuchwicki)

EST Pizzeria, 30 East Tce: "Super close to the Garden Of Unearthly Delights — teeny tiny space but the pizza is too damn good." (Tash Loh)

Street ADL, 285 Rundle St: Eclectic street food, smoked meats and share plates. "Great food, great cocktails." (Lauren Connelly)

Where To Drink (Because Drinks) 

Crown & Anchor, 196 Grenfell St: "Can't go past my second home! For when the Exeter is too packed and you wanna hear some rock'n'roll. Just don't sit on my stool." (Lauren Connelly)

Ancient World, 116a Hindley St: "Adelaide's best kept secret, Ancient World can go from cosy to rowdy in the span of a night, but one thing that will stay constant is their devilishly cheap beers, beginning from $5." (Jonty Czuchwicki)

Pink Moon Saloon, 21 Leigh St: "A tight bar list at this trendy and cosy cabin space, complemented by a strong dining menu. (Jenny Nguyen)

Fumo Blu, 270 Rundle St: "They have incredible cocktails — especially the Kangaroo Island Iced Tea that works pretty well as a one-stop drink, as in it has so many shots of alcohol, you'd probably want to stop after you down it." (Tom Gaffney)
