Foodie Swellness: Hawker Bar

What: Hawker Bar

Where: 164 Ossington Ave.

Atmosphere: Casual. Fun. Small and cozy. Sorry, can’t be more detailed than that — I was so enraptured by the food I was eating (and catching up with a friend) that everything else is a bit fuzzy.

Go here if: You want some amazingly flavourful tasty food. Can someone who’s been to Vietnam Singapore and Hawker Bar tell me if this is the type if food I can expect in Vietnam? (CORRECTION: I have no idea why I had Vietnam in mind, but Hawker Bar is actually Singaporean street food! I’ve been to Singapore, but the trip was quite short and I never got to explore the street food, though). Because if so, Vietnam Singapore has shot right up to my top five on my travel wishlist (as I said, I’ve already been, but have been dying to go back!). I went to the restaurant with high expectations (I’d read some phenomenal reviews) and was fully prepared to order all of the snacks on the menu. Our amused waitress told us that three to four would be filling enough for the two of us. Oh. Drat. So I scaled back reluctantly…


The chili salt tofu (what’s that cray cray addictive house bbq sauce??) I could eat every day. The Singapore chicken wings? Like whoa. A million times better than some pricier wings I had at Momofuku Noodle Bar. Cucumber salad was ok; it didn’t blow my mind but it was a refreshing side and helped cool things off.

I anxiously await my next visit there. Who wants to go?? And I’ll try to not lose myself in the food so much next time so I can tell you a little more…
