Hawkers serves Asian tapas -- smaller sharable plates that allow you to try a lot of different dishes. At $3-$6 a plate, you can easily stuff yourself for less than $20 a person. The decor is modern but not luxe. This was our first visit and the server helpfully explained the dishes and gave suggestions. He brought out chili pepper sauce and siracha without prompting and kept my iced tea filled.
We ordered the Roti Canal which comes with a yummy curry dipping sauce (got 3 extra Roti for less $ because we didn't need more sauce), Crispy Roast Port "Siu Yoke", Roast Duck Taco's, BBQ Char Sui Sliders, Five Spice Tofu and Curry Laksa.
Our clear favorites were the Roti Canal and Curry Laksa. The Roti is a flatbread somewhere between naan and a handmade tortilla. It was fresh and delicious. Curry Laksa is a big bowl of noodles and chicken and some hard boiled egg in a flavorful coconut curry stew. The two Duck Tacos were also very good. My dining companion liked the Crispy Roast Pork but I thought it and the Char Siu were just a little on the dry side. The Five Spice Tofu was the only unanimous loser; it was tasteless - I think they forgot the five spice.
Hawkers was out of the our first choices in desserts ... we ended up sharing a Cinnamon Roti with vanilla bean ice cream (good but nothing special) and a mango sorbet. The sorbet was good but it was topped with green jello(?!) and pieces of fruit that we could not identify, The server said it was pineapple and lychee but if so, it was the most flavorless pineapple and oddly shaped (and flavorless) lychee I ever had.
The bottom line is that while not all the dishes were top notch, there were enough good ones to make me want to come back and try others.
