Review: Cheap Eats at Hawker’s Delight

by gigi on July 31, 2008

Tricia and I decided to meet up one day for a cookie baking session but first, we had to grab some dinner.  We decided to go to Hawker’s Delight by King Edward and Main because it was a cheap and fast option.  I had never been to Hawker’s Delight before because I always tried to go on a Sunday afternoon and it is always closed at at time.  Speaking of which, if anyone knows what the hours are, please let me know.  :)

The menu for Hawkers is not too large but has a good mix of items.  Most items have pictures posted on the walls, which make the ordering process quite easy.  If you look closely at the picture below, you’ll see that most items range between $4.50 to $6.50.  The portion sizes are enough to feed one medium hungry person, which is generally good enough for most people.

Tricia and I decided to share a couple of dishes.  For most dishes, they will ask if you want it to be spicy or non-spicy.  We opted for medium-spicy, which was actually fairly spicy.  First came the Mee Goreng, which was a vegetarian fried noodle dish.  The egg noodles were stir-fried with bok choy, carrots, bean sprouts, and some other veggies.

Next, we had the Nasi Goreng.  This was basically the Mee Goreng but with rice instead of noodles.  :)  What I liked the most about the fried rice was that it had little chunks of potatoes.  The potatoes added a nice texture to the rice.  Even though we had asked for medium spicy for both dishes, the noodles were definitely spicier than the rice.  I guess this place still needs to get its ISO-9001 certification.  :p

I enjoyed Hawker’s Delight quite a bit.  It’s definitely grungy and there is definitely better Malaysian food at other restaurants.  However, it is great value and the food tastes better than what you would expect for the price.  :)  It’s also an excellent alternative to other fast food cheap eateries around the city.
