I still think that that along with China Town, there should be a Little Italy, a Greek Town, Thai & Indian areas..all fronting onto Gouger street. Then within the complex it self have other lesser represented ethnic cuisines.
Like a giant global foods market. Is there anywhere in Australia with a huge complex like that?
Move everything there that doesn't fit into those categories into a new second level above Coles between Gouger and Grote.

Adelaide needs to stop being afraid of expansion.
Totally disagree. Those types of areas typically grow organically and have history. Intentionally segregating out restaurants by nation is tacky, like turning the area into a shopping center food court.
Toursits don't give a shit about that.
Shopping center food courts aren't laid out like that.
I suppose the entry to Chinatown shipped over from China and the usual SA cringeworthy media coverage of it was organic.

The fact is Gouger street is a shadow of it's former self, the Central Markets are crap. The main cuisines/restaurants we have are Chinese, Thai, Indian, Italian and Greek.
Bringing them all together, be it new restaurants or existing ones to that area, in specific sections, would revive that area. It would create something unique that would attract visitors.

Go ask a bunch of restaurant owners to move to next to all their competitors in the hope that visitors to the area will rise, while telling others they are relegated to the second level above a supermarket for not being the right type of food, then come back and let us know how many times you got laughed out the door.

Probably not as many times as you would trying to run a business.

Its being relegated moving to a new purpose built area? I guess using the shopping center analogy moving to a new food court is being relegated..go figure.

Hell why even have food courts, just have eateries dotted around random spots..you know, otherwise theyll have to compete with other eateries.

Because China/Greek/Korea Towns, Little Italy's all over the world havent succeeded, right.

Anyway, let's leave it at that and let the thread stay on topic.
