Six years ago, we opened Hawker Bar to bring new flavors, fun dishes, and a new approach to making Singaporean and South East Asian street food to the Ossington and Dundas neighborhood. We’ve been touched by the diversity of people that have come through our doors, enjoyed our food and, in the process, helped to contribute to Toronto’s culinary scene. With that being said, we also know that all things must change! We’ve decided to close Hawker Bar to give us a chance to explore new, different opportunities far and wide.
We’d like to thank everyone who’s supported us over the years, through our struggle to get a liquor license to the expansion to our second floor. We’d also like to thank all of our staff, including our invaluable chef, Alec Martin, for making sure we run a tight ship and put out a good product. We could never have made Hawker Bar without them!
Sunday April 29th will be our last day of service so we invite everyone to come and grab a Hawker Laksa, Singapore Wings, and say bye to our staff before we close!

In case you were wondering about our name, “Hawker Bar” is derived from the Singaporean “hawker centres” where several food vendors gather to offer their specialty dishes.  Our restaurant, like the hawker centres, is intended to be an informal, fun and energetic place to eat and drink with family and friends. 

Be sure to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram so you don’t miss our daily specials and events. Call (647) 343-4698 for availability for specific dishes as some dishes are seasonal.
