Chris's @ Apollo Bay, Great Ocean Road
July 21, 2015
Chris's is a beautiful restaurant to visit at night - its blackwood walls, brush-box marquee & sandstone floor radiate a gentle warmth, supplying a soothing backdrop for this venue's Greek & southern European specialities off the Great Ocean Road.
The food is a pleasure from start to finish: Octopus krasato, braised in red wine, char-grilled & served with warm white bean salad & almond tarator, followed by saganaki, pan-fried kefalograviera, sumac-roasted tomatoes. toasted walnuts & basil pesto ...
... as well as local mussels steamed open with white wine, mushrooms & shallots, finished with spring onions & dill, plus an elaborate roulade of rabbit stifado stuffed with chicken, leek, bacon, prunes & pistachios, wrapped in vine leaves, finished with mushrooms & shallots in cinnamon-spiced sauce ...
... rounded out by Imam Bayaldi, slow-cooked eggplant with caramelised onions, pine nuts & feta cheese on tomato fondue, & a sweet finish of three acquired-taste Greek-flavoured ice creams: Pistachio praline, chios mastic gum & honey-&-lavender.
