The small round red Hobbit door at the small round entrance of Poison Apple is misleading. Once you step through the dwarf entrance into Poison Apple, the interior is pretty big. A wishing well adorned with bright red apples and swirling “mists” greets me, very Insta-worthy and a favourite spot for photos. The mystical wishing well also doubles up as a beer dispenser!
Located inside EGG (Eight Gourmet Gala) in Sunway, Poison Apple (from Snow White of course) is inspired from fantasy and fairy tales. There’s a bar, checkered tables and more seating inside the cavernous space but what really catches my attention are the hologram “paintings” on the wall high above the bar. Just like in the Harry Potter movies, the characters in the pictures can move!
The main dining space inside Poison Apple is surrounded with shelves holding wines and liquors from various corners of the world. An extensive selection of beer and cider is also available. The food menu puts together an interesting melange of local and western dishes, most of them given creative twists. To help diners with their choices, the Top 10 dishes is a useful guide. From the list, half of the dishes packed some fiery heat, mostly due to the male Szechuan chilli peppers added.
Here’s what we tried and tasted…
Chilli Phoenix (RM58) – kampong chicken with dried chillies smoked with fragrant applewood. Skin was crispy and the meat smokily tender and juicy.
Seafood Tomyum Mee Hoon (RM33) – spicy seafood in boiling broth over mee hoon – definitely appetising!
Spicy Unicorn Leg (RM58) – lambshank in Szechuan pepper sauce. Very tender meat robustly infused with chillies and spices!
Griffin Wings (RM22) – mala spicy fried chicken wings. A bit heavy-handed with the malat peppercorns here but the wings were really crispy and tasty.
The Red Queen Spaghetti (RM33) – mala pasta with Szechuan pepper with minced beef/chicken. A bit overwhelming with the chillies – strictly for chilli lovers!
Lobster Omelette (RM168) – silky whipped eggs poured into poached fresh lobster in a sizzling hot pot. A crowd favourite – and I loved the sweet steamed eggs infused with umami lobster chunks.
“Ang Mo” Spring Rolls (RM16) – spring rolls oozing with thick creamy cheese – only for cheese lovers!
Excalibur, Sword in the Stone (RM32) – big cheesy garlic bread, very filling!
The Beast Burger (RM33) – signature burger with thick juicy beef patty and fried cheese patty and a whole lot of French fries.
Old Driver’s Fried Rice (RM28) – secret Hakka Fried Rice with shrimps and anchovies served in a tall beer glass – quirky!
Do check out Poison Apple’s specialty cocktails, created with whimsical elements and presented with panache! The cocktails are all priced at RM32 and the serving crew does a good job putting in the theatrics …
Poison Apple Signature – vodka with green apple syrup & soda
Snow White’s Potion – vodka with white creme de cacao and coconut cream
Witch’s Voodoo Cauldron – fruity red wine, mixed berries, whipped cream and cocoa powder
The 7 Dwarfs – a shot of 7, mixing beer with a variety of syrups – Connors with Khalua, Carlsberg with Peach, Carlsberg with Blue Curacao, Carlsberg with Grenadine, Carlsberg with Peppermint, Carlsberg with Apple & Grenadine, Carlsberg beer
Poison Apple is certainly appealing with its refreshing theme – great for chilling out in an extraordinary space.
