Moms. We love them!! Who doesn’t love their mom?? So treating them special on Mother’s Day is simply a must-do. And to help you with that, Chef Alec Martin at Hawker Bar has created the most delicious brunch menu for this Mother’s Day (Sunday May 12th, in case you forgot!). Think pulled pork steamed buns with fried egg….and taro croquettes with chili jam….and freshly-juiced mimosa’s….its the best present a mother could ask for.
We’ll see you Sunday, from noon to 3.
Hawker Bar applied for a backyard patio but alas, we were denied one by a few neighbors and the city of Toronto. However, we would like to thank Teo from Union, Philip from Philip Sparks, and especially Brian and Melinda from the neighborhood and community website OssingtonVillage. They are some of our strongest advocates on Ossington and graciously spoke and wrote on our behalf. Thank you to everyone who supported our quest for a fun new restaurant patio! But Hawker Bar shall continue on and look for ever-more ways of bringing wild new exciting things to Ossington Ave (i.e…..brunch!)

This is our Chili Sambal Stingray. That’s right. It’s a stingray. And its unbelieveable. Grilled, perfectly charred and then baked in an aromatic banana leaf bowl and complimented by a spicy flavorful chili sambal and a grilled half-lime, it will be something you must ask for.
So come in, try the stingray, vibe to some A Tribe Called Quest and bask in the goodness.
ps…a special thanks to one of our fav bloggers, Ms. Stephanie Choi for the picture. Yall can check out her thoughts at www.stephaniechao.com/blog
