Set in a heritage building that once housed an apothecary, The Apo Restaurant + Bar has launched its new menu at its Bakery Lane home.

The Apo boasts this new menu will cater to late night diners and a contemporary crowd, a reinstatement of the original menu offerings, with an innovative take on traditional dishes. The menu is focused on sharing and a social dining experience, offering a wide variety of culinary choices to satisfy many different tastes. Head chef Dallas “Big Dal” Costello plated up the new menu, while Moubment Group marketing manager Katie Moubarak expressed her excitement about bringing back the “cult favourites” to the menu.

The menu starts with smoked olives, popcorn cauliflower with spiced carrot, chilli caramel and seared scallops, with tobiko providing a delicious array of tastes. After much hype The Apo fried chicken is considered the favourite from the larger plates, which can be accompanied by a fresh side dish such as the shoestring fries or warm broccoli salad. Dessert lovers can enjoy the white chocolate mousse with matcha, shortbread and raspberry or roasted marshmallow, whipped peanut butter with pineapple, coconut.

Match these with a drop from the wine list or fresh cocktail – the Tommy’s Margarita, Chant du Midi Rosé (Provence) or The Apo Shiraz (McLaren Vale) all complimenting the menu.
