Hawker About2


Many would argue that the very best eating in Malaysia, are found in the open-air dining halls called hawker centres. 

Food peddlers known as hawkers, dedicate themselves to cooking one dish, where local diners argue passionately over who's version is superior.

Alan, Clement and Julian, the guys behind award winning restaurant Mamak, decided to turn their attention to Malaysian-Chinese cuisine.  

The trio embarked on a culinary journey through the food capitals of Penang, Ipoh and Kuala Lumpur, to seek out the best versions of street food favourites like Char Kway Teow, Hokkien Mee and Hainanese Chicken Rice. 

They cooked alongside well known hawkers, who generously shared with them their knowledge and imparted to them their recipes and techniques.

Hawker opened in the heart of Sydney's CBD on December 2014.

It was a hit with locals and was met with immediate critical acclaim, being included in the Sydney Morning Herald, Good Food Guide 2015.

"Whether you're an avid fan or new to the cuisine, we warmly welcome you to our restaurants, and hope you enjoy the food as much as we do!"
