Locked-up foodies grab weekend feasts early Monday morning from a humble Greek restaurant in Sydney’s Potts Point.

The Apollo sells a plethora of delicious Greek-inspired cuts, from Saganaki cheese with honey, lemon and oregano to the mouthwatering whole oven-baked shoulder of lamb.

Most popular is the “Full Greek for Two” restaurant ($140) or the “Family Share Feast” ($300) for four to six people, both of which must be finished in your kitchen to bring the full Mediterranean dining experience to your home. .

But if you want to try the food of the Greek taverna, you should be quick, because Monday afternoon almost everything in the restaurant is sold out for the coming Saturday.

Highlights from the Apollo menu include the half barbecue chicken, cavolo nero, and hummus ($36), as well as the roast chatter potatoes ($14) and the piece de resistance, the whole oven-baked lamb shoulder ($92).

The lamb shoulder has been slow-cooked for 12 hours and is served with tzatziki by the time it arrives at your door.

But, like all Apollo takeaway dishes, it requires a little extra cooking.

In this case, you will need to bake the lamb in your own oven for 40-45 minutes at home.
