    Hawker Sundae

  • Khanh-Dan T.

    You have to get the fried chicken with the spicy sauce, it's the bomb.

  • Alexandra M.

    Mango slushies 😍

  • Jason M.

    The best fried chicken. Add a fried egg and you'll be eating like royalty! 😋

    Way through my lunch. From Living Legends to Edward Sharp this place is the jam!

    Shawn Byron · February 11
  • Shawn B.

    ...sweet and savory broth tremendously! And as with any trendy dish it's delish with a fried egg on top! Show up closer to 1 for a quieter experience. And kudos to the DJ I was dancin the whole...

    It's hard to disappoint with this dish anywhere, but the crew at Hawker Fare really deliver! A generous helping of pork belly leaves nothing to be desired and the fermented mustard greens offset ...

    Whether it be the generous portions or the reasonable prices, this place will make everyone happy. They've recently acquired a liquor license so certainly try their Jackfruit daiquiri. Read more

    Excellent pork belly and patched chicken lunches. Loved the peanut appetizer. Perfect beer pal.

    Brian Strauss · October 23, 2014

    EVERYTHING. Beginners should start with the Kao Mun Gai. Or Gai Thot...get an egg on it.

    Great food and atmosphere. Bad place to eat by yourself.

    Felix Sargent · August 20, 2014

    Park belly fried egg on top of everything

    Ryan Kersten · August 14, 2014

    Start with a refreshing cocktail like the kaffir lime whisky sour ($8), then order succulent grilled lemongrass chicken or meltingly tender 24-hour pork belly and dishes to share. Read more

    Thai street food from Momofuku and Manresa chefs against an old school hip hop backdrop.

  • Kristen L.

    Revised menu is a tasty improvement! Definitely get the pork belly and the pancake with scallops. Always end your meal with a cone...

    Talk about falling off... This place WAS good. Then they went and messed with the menu.

    The pork belly is incredibly tender and flavorful. So delicious!

    Ashley Breunich · February 13, 2014
  • Lynn H.

    Rice bowls are delicious but the portion might not be big enough for some, so get it with some to-shares. Service is just ok tho.

    Lynn Hu · September 12, 2013
  • Jennifer J.

    Loved the tamarind and honey rum drink. Delicious! And great service.

    Try the Duck Rice Bowl - #kvpinmybelly: Succulent #duck meat over rice in #Oakland. Fried egg added a silky finish. Pickled vegetables gave it a nice hit of tang. LOVE!

    Kris Vera-Phillips · August 10, 2013
  • Gregoire J.

    Soft serve....nice!

    The food is very good here and the service.

    Lots of people talking about the pork belly, but the Gai Yang is better. Perfect chicken.

    Brian Wrightson · December 30, 2012
  • Jane W.

    Skip the congee unless you love bland porridge, but save room for the Hawker Sundae forreaaaaal.

    Jane Wrightson · December 30, 2012
  • E W.

    Omg I could drink the hot sauce. And get the peanuts they're good on every damn thing. The chicken rice is only ok, but everything else is consistently outstanding.

    E Wee · August 12, 2012
  • Jason S.

    the marbling on the 24 hour pork belly is unreal. so good

    Jason Su · July 31, 2012

    Try the Hawker Sundae

    Try the Supafly Lager And Condiments

  • Gieson C.

    Always get a bowl with a fried egg on top.

    Gieson Cacho · February 15, 2012

    Ask for the chef's choice. It's a secret dish off the menu that is a tweak of their dishes that Justin is eating himself at the moment.

    This place is always closed! Third time trying and it's randomly closed this week. Make sure to call before driving out here. Lame.

    Fantastic rice bowls! Can't go wrong with any of them, but I particularly love the poached chicken, pork belly and veggie curry.

    Bob Lee · November 24, 2011

    Save your $: pork belly and short ribs were both tough and overpriced. Go to chinatown.

    Michelin Star cuisine on a burger budget. Get the pork belly with the egg. Get everything with the egg.

    David Valentin · November 8, 2011
  • David V.

    Get the Pork belly. I keep meaning to try something else. Everytime I think I'll try something different the waitress comes by asks what I want and I say "I'll have the pork belly."

    David Valentin · October 28, 2011

    Serious nom. Don't tell anyone. Their Kao Mun is their rice made with chicken fat and broth! Dessert: order the condensed milk ice cream cone :)

    Hana Na · September 18, 2011

    Good food, but its too loud

    Bryan Kahler · August 15, 2011
  • Peter S.

    This eclectic rice bowl restaurant was unexpectedly and totally brilliant

    The idea here is to recreate Asian-style street food -- in a hip setting. The modest prices more than offset the cost of coming across the Bay to chow down. Read more

    Pro-tip: Spoon on your right hand, fork on the left. Eat with spoon.
