Who are you? What the heck is Apoy?
We are a Filipino restaurant in Minneapolis started by three friends with creative minds. We named it "Apoy."
Apoy is the word for "fire" in Tagalog, the main dialect of the Philippines. If you are pronouncing "Tagalog" as if it's a schoolyard game you would play with a piece of lumber, you are saying it wrong.
Where you at?
We’re located in South Minneapolis on 43rd and Nicollet
I’ve never had Filipino food, what is it?
Good question. It’s not a common cuisine… yet! If you’ve never had Filipino food, we’d be honored to introduce you to it. To put it simply, it’s primarily Latin ingredients prepared in a more Asian style. It’s a fantastic world of food influenced by many different cultures all coming together in perfect balance.
Will I like it?
Do you serve alcohol?
We have beer and wine and will soon be able to serve liquor.
For a long time our area was not zoned for liquor sales in restaurants due to an outdated law. However as of 2019 it has been overturned and we, as well as other restaurants in the neighborhood, will be able to sell higher percentage alcohol than just beer and wine. Cocktails here we come!
