Takeaway the Healthy Way: Not your regular takeout counter, Hawkr gives Asian street food favorites an innovative, nourishing makeover in Quarry Bay.
Look & Feel: Hawkr’s bright, airy interiors will make lining up for your order a delight. Dynamic wall patterns and warm woods are striking without being in-your-face. No seating, but there’s a bar counter facing the window for those who prefer to grab a bite there and then.
On the Menu: Southeast Asian classics like curries, soup noodles and baguette sandwiches with a healthy, contemporary twist — think nutritious, organic ingredients in place of grease and MSG. The menu takes inspiration from countries all across the region, from Thailand and Malaysia to Vietnam and Myanmar. Try the signature Javanese beef rendang ($68), the Saigon chicken baguette ($40) or the hot prawn popiah wrap ($44). There are breakfast pots ($28), bespoke juices ($26) and desserts such as the Khanom Chan ($18), too.

Meet the Chef: Hawkr is the brainchild of restaurateur Jake Astor, F&B and hospitality guru Ivan Pun and Mina Park of Korean dining concept Sook, who has hosted pop-up dinners at Serge et le Phoque and collaborated with celebrity chef Bobby Chinn.
Great For: Picking up a quick yet delicious meal before heading back to your desk.
FYI: Plans for more branches are already in the works. Hawkr’s second iteration may open as early as this month — watch this space.
