Majestic Hawker

Posted by


Picture this: BBQ chicken wings, stingray cooked in banana leaf, and frothy beers. The boys behind Palms Springs-inspired Good Heavens and Fancy Hank’s are launching Majestic Hawker, a pop-up located in Abbotsford for one weekend only. Located opposite Dr Morse on Johnston Street, the culinary genius behind Hank’s — Kent Bell, Mike Patrick, Daragh Kan and Myles Munro — will serve up a sweet sleuth of Singaporean and Malaysian hawker-style dishes.

Jumping on board for the hawker-style barbecue feast is Hank’s former head chef and Singaporean Alicia Cheong, who now works at Par Andre, ranked fourteenth at World’s 50 Best Restaurants. The wok dish that will have tongues wagging is Singapore’s hero noodle dish Char Kway Teow (flat rice noodles with Chinese sausage, fishcake and egg) followed by the traditional Asian dessert fried banana fritters with panda coconut ice-cream. A $30 ticket will provide you with a three-course dinner and a $50 ticket includes drinks.

The hawker-style barbecue idea has brewed in their collective minds for a number of years. ‘Singapore has been a favourite destination for Mike and I to visit over the last couple of years and we have been really inspired by their barbecue cooking techniques’, says Bell. Kan added, ‘My dad was born in Malaysia, so my childhood holidays were mainly spent having satay eating competitions with my brothers at hawker centres.’

Fancy sitting in a toasty warehouse listening to cool tunes behind while an open-charcoal kitchen cooks up a storm? Then we’ll see you at Majestic Hawker this weekend.
