Hwkr - Monkey's Corner

Hwkr as you all known by now is a rotating Asian food by various vendors in a modern food court settings. Monkey's Corner is one of them,  arrived in Melbourne from Sydney. One of the ventures belong to the Poernomo's brother. It's the same stall as Koi which I will discuss more in the next individual post.

Crispy Grilled Chicken Skin with an option of lemon or spicy, I opted for lemon. Well done, so crispy but not greasy. I could eat this as snack everyday even though I know it's going to be so bad for my health but seriously a must to try at Hwkr.

Ox Tounge with beef fat, chives and lime ($13). I went in with the Poernomo's oldest brother wife and mom which is a close friend of my family. She did say it's best with rice cause of it's rich salty flavour and she was right. So make sure you order your rice with this dish. The ox tongue cut so thinly that it melts in your mouth, though I crave a lil bit of crispiness in this dish.

I'll probably be back to try more of their dishes such as grilled prawn and duck breast. I just wish they bring their uni bowl to Melbourne. That I would love so much and probably come back as often as I can cause they look so good and probably taste so good too.
