Named after Hong Kong’s popular daily newspaper, Perth restaurant The Apple Daily Bar & Eating House offers Southeast Asian street style eats within the lively Print Hall at Brookfield Place.
Open for lunch and dinner, the menu by Head Chef Adrien Voisin is designed to share and we recommend going with a big group so you can try everything! Whatever you do, order enough servings of the Linley Valley pork ribs to go around. These beauties are all kinds of sticky delicious, coated in a tamarind, lime and chilli glaze—and could create a lot of tension around friends if you don’t order enough.
When it comes to the street food snacks, you can’t go past a bit of DIY action with the saltwater duck, spring onion, flower bun and hoisin. We also go crazy for the green papaya salad with peanuts, chilli and dried shrimp and the sticky twice cooked pork belly with coconut and banana blossom.
Including the sticky tamarind pork ribs, the bigger shares feature a whole lot more Southeast Asian goodness, like drunken noodles, masaman curry of slow cooked lamb shank and jungle chicken curry.
Be sure to save room for dessert, because you’re going to want all of them at Apple Daily. First of all, there’s the taro ice cream with sesame, salted peanut brittle and chocolate soil. Then there are the extremely decadent Thai banana fritters. And if that doesn’t take your fancy, perhaps we can tempt you with the chai broken cheesecake?
If you were a fan of bubble tea growing up you’re going to love Apple Daily’s adult spin on the drink—featuring passion fruit popping pearls, gin, ginger and blackberry jam.
The remainder of the 79 page strong drinks list at Apple Daily features beers, wines, sparkling and spirits from all over the world, including Taiwanese whiskey, sake and house-made liquor.
Head to Apple Daily on Beer and Bao Tuesday and get your hands on some tasty baos. If dumplings are more your thing, you’re going to want to check out Dim Sum and DJ’s night on Thursdays.
You are now able to make a booking at Apple Daily for groups of six or more! Larger groups will do well to try their ‘Feed Me Menu’, leaving all the tough decisions up to Chef. Or you could just visit mid-week for lunch or dinner and glide right up to a table, ready to devour the goodness! Check out their Instagram feed in case you need more convincing (which you shouldn't).
