When we first walked in, I was really impressed with the decor. Nearly everything is repurposed, which is very refreshing to see!
Our next item was a dish recommended by our waitress, and it turned out to be a favorite for everyone at the table!! Roti Canai is a Malasian flat bread served with spicy curry dipping sauce. I cannot even begin to describe how delightful this dish was. The bread was very light and airy. It reminded Andrew of "biscuits that come in a can", which made me laugh but is actually pretty true. The dipping sauce was also very good. I'm typically not a huge fan of curry, but I loved this stuff!
Our next dish was Basil Fried Rice. We knew we wanted a rice dish, and this one looked very interesting. Well we made the right choice because we all loved this dish! The basil gave it a very unique flavor and the rice was cooked perfectly.
We had a hard time deciding on a noodle dish because everything looked yummy, but we ended up deciding on the Char Kway Teo, which is wide rice noodles stir-fried with shrimp, chicken breast, scallions, and bean sprouts. This dish also turned out to be a favorite of the table. I don't usually like bean sprouts, but they didn't bother me in this dish. Everything blended nicely and the flavor was outstanding!
Our last dish was the Pot Stickers. I hate to say it, but after all of the other dishes, these just seemed average. They weren't bad, but they didn't really stand out to us.
Verdict: Loved it! Hawkers is located right down the street from work, so I can easily see this becoming a new lunch spot for us. The food comes out pretty quick and the prices are right! Plus, they have this handy guide on their menu :)
