We came for lunch to ensure safe social distancing. The hostess came to us immediately and gave a wide choice of seating options. We asked about their specialties and she was well trained. The ambience is very casual, loud 80’s-current music playing loudly, so it wasn’t as relaxing as it could have been. Maybe that volume is more appropriate after dark. The bathroom had piped old school (soft) Korean music. The server was also well-trained and guided our choices. Hawkers is well-named since street food is typically tapas-sized portions and designed to share with friends, encouraging guests to try other dishes. They specialize in getting fresh food to your table shortly after the order is put in. Plan to order 3-5 dishes per couple. Limited dessert menu (2), but well-prepared and presented.

We submitted names on the online waitlist – good timing since we sat down once we arrived. The place was fill and they had tables separated and the location has inside/outside feel. Friendly and welcoming service. Our server, Marco, was positive, energetic and informative… very helpful explaining menu and items. All 4 of us started ordering our choices with intent to share (love doing that). Edamame was good… a bit spicy, but good. Golden wontons were a hit. Nice flavor. Marco recommended duck steamed boas – awesome – duck was cooked in flavorful sauce and we ordered pork belly buns too. Then my favorite – Korean twice fried wings. I ate most of them. Loved the flavor and the batter was crispy and just the right amount of spice. We all shared basil friend rice, yaki udon, and pad thai. Pad thai was unanimous favorite with the yaki udon and basil friend rice having satisfied customers. Dessert – we ordered both. We loved the donuts and cinnamon roti was yummy. The cocktails – ball in a china shop was ok. The saki bombs were good but I’ll stay away from those… they are powerful shots. Great time – fun place – good food – loved our server.

When turning into the parking lot, I very quickly found a spot right in front.  Walking through the back entrance, there is a sign up about the requirement to wear masks which made me comfortable.  We were warmly greeted by the front team who led us to a comfortable outdoor table and when seated, a friendly team member immediately welcomed us and instructed us to link to the menu, taking our drink and appetizer choices right away.  He asked if we had any questions and since we have been there often, we had none, but nice of the waiter to ask.  I loved the music and the warmth of the outdoor courtyard and I will welcome opportunity to sit with a group someday on couches around fire pit.  The drinks and appetizers came quickly – loved the Roti Canai (Malaysian flatbreads with signature curry sauce) and delicious Summer Rolls that remind me of what is called Nime Chow at authentic Asian restaurants in Rhode Island.  I must say that the small plate appetizers are quite diverse, from chicken dumplings, to wontons, skewers and wings. I had warm sake and later a whiskey sour which was as it was described, “a classic.”   Soon, my spicy, delicious Tom Yum soup came which I always enjoy for the spicy lemongrass broth with vegetables, noodles and shrimp and my friend had Hawkers Delight which is a light vegetarian dish (the portion was small but “enough” per my friend) with tofu ,broccoli, mushrooms, bell peppers and carrots in a mild sauce.   We both had cold Vietnamese Coffee with a nice bit of whipped cream on top and shared “Bag o Donuts” for a sweet dessert.   All food and beverages are of great quality and prices are very reasonable. We were not rushed and check came when we wanted it.   I am willing to consistently give this place a 10 out of 10!
