The history of Apollo dates back to an even later time when Chinese immigrants settled in various parts of the country seeking good fortune away from their native homeland. One of whom settled in Bacolod City with his wife and made use of his gift in preparing authentic chinese cuisine to start his own restaurant business to support his family. The name Apollo was inspired by the spaceship Apollo 11 which has successfully landed on the moon on that same year. The children helped their parents in the family business and has introduced new entries to their menu. Apollo is continually serving the palate of Bacolod peeps as of this writing.
One of the famous dish in their menu is the Lumpia Shanghai which is often ordered by patrons who visits the place or drop by for take-outs. Their version of the Bird's Nest Soup is to our liking although we could not vouch of its authenticity because originally the authentic soup is literally made from the nest of birds which can only be found on limestone rock formations in Palawan island and is only harvested by experienced native climbers since the cliffs proved to be risky. This menu is actually quite controversial and is not often served even in the place where it is locally sourced, not only because of the risks that comes with harvesting but also because taking these nests proved harmful to the livelihood of the little birds which are indigenous to Southeast Asia.
One of our personal favorite is the Fried Noodles Hong Kong Style. We also love their Crispy Pata which was fried to perfection.
We give a 4/5 for the food and service but maybe they can improve the place a bit especially the restrooms because it is often one of the most neglected area that customers are actually particular with especially in restaurants.
