Hi we are travelling from Auckland to Adelaide in Feb and basically live to eat, so really keen to try some good food on our travels!
we are going to be spending time in Adelaide, Barossa Valley and Fleurieu peninsular.

Keen to get some recommendations - especially:

1) Adelaide - good "ethnic" (for want of a better word) eateries - we arent so fussed about going to the fanciest restaurants so much as trying some good authentic food - in particular the cuisines that Auckland doesnt do well - Vietnamese, Lebanese, Iranian, Ethopian - also never say no to great Thai or Japanese - make that pretty much anything - if its outstanding then we want to try it! Also we dont mind splurging if its required but authenticity is the key!

2) Barossa Valley - keen to do lots of wine tasting and some winery lunch and/or dinners somewhere that has a great setting AND has good food and wine - again dont mind splurging for somewhere nice.

3) Fleurieu - again recommendations for Mclaren Vale in terms of wineries for dining at and visiting. Also, heard a lot of good things about Star of Greece - wonder, is it really as good as the hype? We will be staying near Port Elliot so recommendations for there or Victor Harbour also appreciated.

thanks for any comments/posts
