$22 is definitely a steep price to pay for cocktails, but Hopscotch truly pulls out all the stops in terms of presentation and taste. Their menu is one of the prettiest and most well-thought ones I’ve seen, with detailed descriptions and a full ingredient list. You can also order a bespoke cocktail for $20-30. My favourite was the White Sands. Only downside is that the location is very inaccessible.

Limited selection of roast meat but great quality. Chicken was succulent, beef was perfectly tender (and goes so well with the truffle butter and salt) and the pork was crispy and flavourful. The cooked food was pretty average, but desserts were not bad.

This curry simply reminds me of home, that old school flavour. Curry is luscious and perfect, with hints of spiciness. Tender pieces of chicken drumsticks and wings. Potato. Eat the curry with a plate of rice or some white bread, that would be the perfect pairing for this dish.

The mushrooms are braised until that is a hint of burnt smell, maximising the aroma of the mushrooms.

I have been immeasurably excited for The Carvery’s Great Meat Feast since it first started years ago, but it was only this year that I managed to find a willing wingman to attack this buffet with me.

At $78++ a person for Monday-Thursday dinner, we savored cuts from a Tajima Wagyu chuck roll, Tajima Wagyu tri-tip, a bone-in rib of Beef City Black (yes, the WHOLE rib), an Ana Paula Black Angus ribeye, and a bit of rotisserie chicken. Of course, the rest of the normal buffet is also available to you, and I would definitely recommend the wonderful western section with its respectable lineup of delectable delights, the stellar seafood selection which was fantastically fresh, and the divine dessert display. Oh, special mention must go out to the splendid Yorkshire puddings at the meat carvery. They were airy, light and modestly buttery, a true joy to devour.

But let’s get to the meat of the matter, shall we? My favorite bovine of the night was arguably the Ana Paula Black Angus ribeye. Grilled on a salt block to a perfect rare with a stunning brown crust on the outside, it had the perfect fat to meat ratio, and the beef was like butter. It was so tender, so juicy and so smooth every bite was an immeasurable delight.

Coming in at a close second would be the Beef City Black tomahawk rib with its butteriness and tremendous tenderness. Cooking the whole rib on the bone paid off handsomely, as all the flavor trapped within the massive rib bone was unleashed into the succulent beef wrapped around the bone. It was sparingly seasoned, as with all the other cuts of beef. The Carvery has a self service seasoning & condiments station so you can customize and season your meat to your hearts content.

The wagyu tri-tip was narrowly edged out to third with its juiciness and succulence despite it being a lean cut of beef, while the wagyu chuck roll was definitely the letdown of the quartet. It had been cooked to rare in some parts, but the inner parts were still a touch raw, and there was a fair bit of undercooked fat running throughout. I got a piece that was full of gristle, and as a result, the chuck roll was the only cut that didn’t get a second visit from me.

The quality is of the meats is undisputedly top shelf stuff, and on weekends for an extra $10 per head, The Carvery puts out a cut of Yukimuro Snow Aged Wagyu Beef. While the weekday buffet is already excellent, I’d advise waiting till the weekends and splashing out that extra $10 to savor even more meaty goodness.

The best way to end a dinner at ABC Brickworks Hawker? Having dessert at Geometry of course!

Many options to choose from in terms of gelato, even orh nee (but we tried it and the taste was a little too “funky”). The baked tart added a nice touch to the gelato we ordered, tho the floss on top was decorative but too hard to eat.

Recommend that you don’t overeat at the hawker since the walk over is too short to digest your hawker food! :P

Only at @wokinbur where @chefzwayne_ cooks up a Clam Pasta with Wok Hei and a nice degree of spiciness.

How good is this pasta?
Being an Italian, @blenderandbasil was beaming from ear to ear when the pasta was served and gave the seal of approval after tasting it.
It is that good.

Thanks @paul_liew @chefzwayne_ @wokinbur for serving us this awesome pasta.

As with #mazesoba, it tends to get a bit jelat towards the end. But this is still less jelat than the one I tried at chinatown point.

Environment wise, this is a cozy little restaurant located on Level 1 of Park Hotel that has a mish mash of different shops on its 1st level which gives a messy impression.

If you spend above a certain amount, might be able to claim for free parking at their Customer Service Counter.
