Inspired by hawker cuisine of Singapore and Southeast Asia, we’re bringing home-made, bright-flavoured fare to the Ossington and Dundas neighbourhood.
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.
We’re located in the heart of the West side of Toronto, at 164 Ossington Avenue, M6J 2Z7. It’s a short walk from either the Queen Street West or Dundas Street West streetcars or on the 63 Ossington bus. If you’re driving, there’s on-street parking or public parking lots available at the corner of Ossington Avenue and Dundas Street
Monday to Thursday: 6pm – 10pm
Friday: 6pm – 2am
Saturday: 5pm – 2am
Sunday: 5pm – 10pm
