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.
