The Apple Daily – Bar & Eating House

I’ve long wanted to go to this restaurant within Print Hall at Brookfield Place, and the wait was well worth it! Named after Hong Kong’s daily rag, it offers south-east Asian street food. And street food indeed – I ended up using my hands for the majority (with the appropriate company!!).

I love how they stock only WA wine and beer – this bubbly chardonnay was an awesome find!photo-71

The meals come out when they’re ready which I prefer with share food so you’re not overwhelmed. The crispy soft shell crab, watercress, ruby grapefruit, nam jim ($18) was everything you’d expect from soft shell crab – delicious!

The saltwater duck, spring onion, flower bun, hoisin ($24) was basically a duck pancake which is one of my favourite dishes to eat and call me lazy but I like mine assembled for me at the table by the waiter – it’s all part of the experience I say!

Gaiyang spring chicken, sate sauce, cucumber ($34) was a bit more exy as it was a very generous serve and four people could have enjoyed a decent amount. I can be a bit wary of chicken but this was well-cooked and basted in flavour. We also enjoyed the pad thai, prawns, sweet pork and chilli jam ($26) which lacked a bit of punch. I don’t recall the pork at all and you had to go digging for the few prawns.

The service was excellent and staff were well-versed in the menu. A most enjoyable experience!
