It looks like a normal restaurant from the outside but the inside is a whole different story. The first thing I notice after entering was the giant moose head on the wall. After sitting down you notice that little cupboard all contain interesting items reminiscent of an old-style pharmacy. The menu is a bit different from standard cafes, with a slight Asian twist to some items. They also have the super shakes available as well, the menu on a blackboard on the wall. The food is alright. Portions are decent. I didn't particularly like the flavour of the pork belly as it was a bit to bitter. The school prawns were good. The chocolate super shake was also really good, although they added so much candy toppings that it lasted a few days after. It did get hard to get the attention of the servers though after ordering.

I went to Apothecary this morning for breakfast. I had two bad experiences there but the owner told me he has new chefs, so I had to try it again. Well, my chai latte was lukewarm and not sweet and my breakfast was underwhelming and lukewarm. I have learned my lesson now and will never go back there. I hate spending money on something I did not enjoy.

Good food, albeit the service let us down when we visited for lunch on Sunday. Caucasian women with blonde/black streaks in a white/black lined shirt was too busy dancing to the music and had to repeat myself due to her being distracted. Otherwise, good food, atmosphere and service from others. Shame how service can taint your whole experience.
