One of the best sellers at Mad For Garlic and I totally see why. This is the second time I’m back here and I already KNEW I was going to reorder this while walking to the restaurant. This is garlic fried rice on steroids as it comes packed with aromatic crispy garlic, juicy bacon, capsicum, leek and onions (which I didn’t mind in this case as they were nicely cooked on the hot plate!). There’s a little bit of creamy sauce drizzled on top of the dish for even more oomph and to keep the dish from being too dry. With such explosive flavours in the rice, I barely noticed the taste of the sauce. I’d recommend the Garlic Sizzling Rice to anyone who likes garlic and fried rice. This is a dish I’d keep reordering and it’ll be a challenge to review the other rice dishes on their menu when I’ve already had a taste of this winner.

Two chunky pieces of crispy beer battered red snapper in a crispy beer batter, served with French fries, malt vinegar and tartar sauce. Fish was well-battered and fried, so they were actually crispy even after being left out for a while, and not oily. The red snapper is soft and flaky, and the natural sweetness of the fish still stands out. Always love the combination of battered fish and malt vinegar, and the offerings here at The Chop House are good too despite them being a steakhouse. I didn’t enjoy the fries served with this or any of the other dishes. They weren’t crispy enough, nor were they seasoned with enough salt or spices. They were bland and lacklustre - save your stomach space for the coconut brioche dessert instead!

Thick and foamy with a sprinkling of cocoa powder, but overall the roast isn’t particularly strong or aromatic. I’d pass on the coffee if I made a return visit to The Chop House.

One of the recommended desserts at The Chop House - apple strudel stuffed with seasoned apples and pastry cream, served with vanilla ice cream, custard crepe anglaise, and topped with chopped pistachios. Unlike the recommended coconut brioche dessert, this was completely underwhelming. The pastry was thick and cold, plus no knifes were provided so cutting it was a challenge using the limited spoons given to our table. The filling spewed out of the pastry. Overall I felt the pastry tasted too doughy and not flaky enough, while the filling was too sweet (although it makes sense since you’re supposed to eat it together to balance the sweetness with the pastry). I didn’t enjoy this dessert at all and wouldn’t order it again - the coconut brioche is so much better.

The Coconut Brioche Toast is one of the recommended items on The Chop House menu and it definitely deserves some love. For $8, you’re served a warm oven-baked brioche with coconut cream and vanilla accompanied by a scoop of coconut sorbet and pistachios.

This was my favourite part of our meal here. The brioche was warm and crisp on the outside, yet moist and soft on the inside. The coconut cream and vanilla made the already-yummy brioche even more delicious, and I loved the coconut sorbet pairing with pistachios that added a refreshing coolness to the warm bread and some crunchy nuttiness for some reprieve from the creamy sweetness. I think this dessert was well worth the $8 and would order this again!

We were taken aback by how large this dessert was as we certainly weren’t expecting two slices of brownies with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Despite our initial excitement, we were disappointed by how absurdly sweet the brownie was. Coupled with the chocolate sauce, I couldn’t stomach more than two mouthfuls of this decadent dessert. It’s a pity, because the texture of this brownie was quite delightful and dense. The vanilla ice cream also did little to mute the sweetness of the brownies. While the portion is value-for-money at such a restaurant, I wouldn’t recommend wasting calories on this unless you have an extreme sweet tooth.
