Popolo has just dropped a new menu that channels Southern Italian coastal vibes, just in time for summer. We’ve never been more ready to feel like we have been whisked away to the Italian Riviera! Diners can expect to see more seafood and dishes that pair perfectly with a spritz or two.
Sydney Rock Oysters
Is there anything more luxe than starting your meal with oysters… we think not! Kick off your meal with half a dozen of the freshest Sydney Rock oysters with Mignonette sauce, it’s the perfect light starter for the incoming warm weather!
If you’re a Burrata fan, then this new dish from Popolo will become your instant fave! Think sumptuous and creamy Burrata matched with prosciutto, figs, and balsamic dressing. Pairing perfectly with the citrus spritz that features Ambleside mandarin gin, Campari, orange and mandarin juice, prosecco, Long Rays citrus tonic. We’re calling it now; this is THE perfect combo for an indulgent summer combo!
Grilled WA Octopus
Seafood lovers, this dish has your name written all over it! We are of course talking about the grilled WA Octopus with chickpea puree, and chilli oil for a touch of spice. Sip in style while enjoying your Octopus with the Luna Rosa that features Capricorn Distilling Co. pineapple and spiced rum, Aperol, pineapple, lime juice, blackberries, and sugar syrup.
The Kinkawooka Mussels is another great dish for seafood fans, see we weren’t exaggerating when we said to expect more seafood! This is a great sharing dish, but no judgment here if you want to keep it all to yourself! Get ready to be transported on a culinary journey to Southern Italy as you savour the tastes of delicious Kinkawooka Mussels, Ndjua, shallots, and white wine.
Confit Duck Ragu Bianco
This is the duck ragu dish you know and love with a twist because they have made it Bianco, aka without the tomato pasta sauce. This is our idea of the perfect summer pasta completed with Mafaldine pasta and (lots of!) Pecorino.
Moreton Bay Bug Linguine
Introducing Chef Francesco’s new signature dish, the Morten Bay bug linguine with spanner crab and lobster bisque – it’s a total crowd-pleaser. Our drink of choice to pair with this mouth-watering dish is the Nettare Dorato cocktail that features Toki Japanese whisky, English breakfast tea, honey, cloudy apple, and lemon juice!
No fish impresses more than the swordfish, and the pan-fried swordfish from Popolo is no exception. Paired with leafy escarole and zesty salmoriglio dressing is the definition of Southern Italian coastal vibes, and we will be ordering this one on repeat every chance we get!
