My boyfriend and I have been going to Hawker's Delight for years. It is authentic and fast. There are many different options to choose from but we usually get the mee goreng or nasi goreng (noodles or rice dish). The prices have gone up a bit the last few years but you can still get a delicious meal for under... More

I've been eating at Hawkers regularly for ten years...it's a poorly kept secret in Vancouver but may be overlooked by visitors. A definite must for travellers on a budget who want healthy portions and great variety. Nothing I wouldn't recommend, but the Chicken Fried Kuey Teow is my favorite.

I hit Hawkers one very rainy Friday evening, after my flite into YVR was delayed and I "lost" my car in the long term parking. When i arrived I was drenched, cold, headachy, and feeling pissed off. I needed food and fast. A steaming bowl of Laksa and two veggie fritters quickly arrived which I slurped down while pretending I... More

We were desperate for Sing/Malay noodle dishes, checked all the TripAdvisor reviews and couldn't get there fast enough. Can't recall what we ordered, we were in 7th street food heaven and couldn't think straight. Got there about 5pm and a few seats were available. Portions are humungous, dishes come out fast, amazingly affordable, and Ma at the counter will explain... More

One of the last mainstays of true Asian food on Main Street, Hawker's Delight offers a smorgasbord of incredible and authentic Malaysian and Singaporean classics at very affordable prices. This place is an absolute gem, easily one of the very best in its class in Vancouver, never mind being incredibly cheap.

This will be a rather limited review since I only ate there once. I will not return. I recently returned from Singapore and compared to what I ate there, the nasi goreng was uninspired, and tasteless (unless you like grease).

One of my main objectives of visiting Vancouver from Alberta was to experience great Ethnic Food in the most authentic way. Hawker's Delight was on the top of my list and did not disappoint my cravings. I choose the dishes most recommend by others and only wish I would have had time for more visits !

This is definitely one of the more authentic and amazing meals we had. We were staying in Gastown, and the bus ride there was about 20 minutes, and we passed some of the more dodgy places on the way, but the actual venue was fine. The food was cheap, service was quick and food was reallly amazing. Would highly recommend!!

Went with friends for dinner. Large portions, cheap prices. Most entrees on the menu are $6-8 but then for some reason have the mysterious $14 curry... My friends and I had the laksa, mee rebus, mee goreng and nasi goreng. The laksa and mee rebus were very delicious and flavourful. However, the mee goreng and nasi goreng goreng (basically the...

Neighbourhood Profile
South Main
South Main, or SoMa, is a neighbourhood in upswing. Inhabited by young humanitarian professionals in converted lofts and studio apartments, what was once an industrial centre is now a wellspring of vintage and eco fashion shops, contemporary sawdust-floor galleries, craft beer joints, and basement acting studios. All set to an Art Deco background with a strong blue collar sensibility underpinning each new pop-up and foodie trend, SoMa is on the rise.
