The Wizard's Brew

Dawson Tan

Time Out says

Step into an otherworldly space where it turns fantasy of all things wizardry into reality. In the heart of Chinatown along the touristy Trengganu Street lies a wizard’s hideout unbeknownst to most. With floating candles, ornamental chandeliers, giant shelves filled with mythical books, and even a faux fireplace, this mediaeval-gothic-inspired dessert bar takes a page from the beloved Harry Potter series.

The sorcery begins with a slew of imaginative desserts paired with theatrical showmanship that is set to wow guests of all ages. Take the Witches Hat for instance, where the epic reveal features burning away a combustible witch’s hat to reveal the signature chocolate cake dessert. Other eye-catching presentations include colour-changing liquids and smoking cauldrons that are sure to delight the cameras (or your online followers).

But it isn’t all just plain gimmicks as the desserts themselves are well crafted. We sliced into the signature chocolate cake to find layers of delicate Valrhona milk chocolate mousse, crunchy confectionery pearls, and a buttery biscuit base. There is also a chocolate bon bon encased with lemon cream on the side to balance off the richness with bursts of zest.

The Baby Root ($19) comes straight out of Professor Sprout’s Herbology Class in the Harry Potter film. But there won’t be a need to wear earmuffs as the foul-pitched Mandrakes are made entirely from rich chocolate ganache. Presented as a sharing dessert, strawberry shortcake, made with juicy strawberries, light sponge and plenty of Oreo crumbs, finds a nest in an adorable egg-shaped pot.

The dessert bar also shakes up a whimsical range of spell-binding cocktails that are a feast for the eyes too. Expect fire shows with the rum-based Phoenix Fire ($22) and the smoking grapefruit-forward signature of the Wizard’s Brew ($22). Though, we reckon butter beers would be a great addition to the non-alcoholic selection.

There are also interactive experiences from potion-making classes to spellcasting demonstrations led by resident enchanters in the works, making The Wizard’s Brew a worthy spot to visit for couples, families and definitely Potterheads.
