Order takeaway delights from this Charlestown venue
Another week in lockdown has got us already planning what takeaway joint we’ll be enjoying over the weekend, and if you’re sitting at home wondering what goodness you’re going to order in, you’ve got to check out the goods coming out of Charlestown-based venue; Babbingtons Bar & Grill!
The restaurant located within Apollo International Hotel situated on the Pacific Highway has like all restaurants, had to change up the way they do things. No longer being able to serve up their food to guests, the local restaurant has opted to bring locals a truly delicious takeaway menu featuring a bunch of flavoursome favourites.
We caught up with Executive Head Chef, Samuel Beatty, to get the lowdown on the restaurant’s takeaway offering! Pivoting their usual casual fine-dining atmospheric offering, into a takeaway menu was a feat in itself, but the team have worked hard to offer a unique and delicious offering suitable for anyone and everyone.
“When we sat down to put together our takeaway menu, we came up with the concept that we wanted to provide comfort food and family favourites. With people having to stay in and it being such uncertain times, we wanted to provide an escape in our food,” Samuel said.
An escape is exactly what the team have created with iconic dishes alongside dishes with a signature Babbingtons twist. Starters include favourites like the Garlic Herb & Cheese Bread and Salt & Pepper Prawns with mixed salad and chilli aioli, alongside flavoursome surprises like the Four Cheeses Macaroni Croquettes served with a chilli jam and the Sticky Chinese BBQ Chicken Wings; YUM!
Moving into the restaurant main meal offerings you can get your traditional goods such as the Babbingtons Beef Burger or Grilled Chicken Burger, both complete with lettuce, smoked bacon, tasty cheese, caramelised onion, and tomato relish served with fries, or the Slow Cooked Beef & Mushroom Casserole with creamy mash and seasonal greens; perfect for a chilly night in.
The other stand-out dishes are the ever-so colourful Babbingtons Thai Marinated Beef Salad with crispy noodles, heirloom tomatoes, spinach, candied cashews and topped with Thai dressing or the loaded Babbingtons BBQ Glazed Pork Ribs with garden salad and crispy fries.
Have we got you drooling yet? With a menu loaded with so many great dishes it’s hard to choose what to pick! So, of course we had to ask the head chef his number one recommendation…
“My personal favourite has to be the Babbingtons Thai Marinated Beef Salad! Our team came up with the dressing recipe in-house. The mix of sweet and tangy with a hint of citrus at the end complements the caramelised cashew nuts – it’s definitely a must try!”
What about the most popular dish?
“The most popular would be without a doubt the Chefs Vegetable Curry! Our Vegetable Curry is the ultimate comfort food and it’s also a really versatile dish being gluten-free and vegan. We also offer the option to add either chicken or prawns so it really is the dish for everyone.”
So, what are you waiting for? Check out Babbingtons Bar & Grill’s takeaway menu, get your order in and stary enjoying their tasty comfort food!
