A new food menu has been introduced at Walkabout bars, with more of a focus on lighter options alongside Australian-inspired dishes.
It features a Pan-Asian Herb Salad and Caesar Salad as well as dishes such as Sweet Potato Hummus and Zucchini and Calamari Snackboards, designed to “capture the essence of modern-day Australian eating”.
The new menu also offers “Aussie Heroes” such as Chicken Parmigiano and Walkabout’s popular Roo Burger – kangaroo steak burger topped with tomato, lime and pepper salsa. In keeping with the theme, the menu’s design also features Aboriginal-inspired motifs.
It encourages food and drink matching as well as combination deals such as the “Aussie Lunch” main and drink deal, which is designed to be with the customer in 15 minutes.
Surfboard Platters are also on offer, allowing parties and groups to share snacks from a body-board-shaped serving platter, adding an element of theatre to their experience.
Intertain is initially introducing the new offering at its newer and most recently refurbished Walkabout bars. It will be rolled out across the rest of the estate as part of Intertain’s investment programme.
The new menu has been launched alongside an Instagram campaign encouraging people to share pictures of their dining experience with the hash tag #walkiefoodie.
Andrew Dean, customer experience manager at Intertain, said: “This new menu represents a fantastic opportunity for us to increase food sales and become better known as a place to dine for lunch or as part of a night out.
“We’ve always had an eye on the health of our customers, but the new ‘Lighter Options’ section of the menu offers people the chance to harness control for themselves, enabling them to keep track of exactly what they’re eating if they wish to – even when they’re dining out.
“Of course, our menu still features more indulgent classics, but it means Walkabout has something to offer everyone popping in for lunch or dinner, and we’re really excited about the opportunity that that represents for our brand.”
