My first time here was a series of events from the gorgeous 2 dogs sitting at the door whilst their masters sat inside making their fury mouths water. To the homeless guy sucking on his plastic glue bag who thought he’d use the dogs as his pillow till the Restaurant owner Mo had the Police come and drag him away. Only on K Road.

Now to the food and service. The owners of Apero, chef Leslie Hottiaux (ex-sous chef at The Grove and Baduzzi) and her partner Ismo Koski (aka Mo, ex maitre d' at Sidart and Merediths).
Mo is in charge of front of house and is good at it, explaining the menu extensively to us.

The menu is short but has delightful dishes that you can tell are cookid by a female Chef. Tiny goat's cheese croquettes, lightly fried then rolled in almond flakes are fantastic but I wish were slightly bigger at $8 for two as small as my baby finger.

A "bag of bread and butter" turns up in an intriguing fabric sack filled with warm bread rolls, accompanied by a piece of slate generously slashed with butter. A plump ball of burrata is served with different colour heirloom tomatoes, basil and olive oil which I absoloutely loved. A house-made pork sausage which we ordered 1 and a ¼ mts for the table of 9 of us was really yummy.

A plate of petit fours includes an apple jelly and some Madeleines were the dessert offerings but you could tell that this place was more about the shared boards and wine as the Dessert just didn’t do it for me and I just found it all very soapy tasting.

At Apero the food is beautifully presented, pay them a visit. But think of somewhere else to go for dessert and tea if that’s your bag as this is not their thing.
