HWKR is a stylish neon-lit food court in Melbourne, upping the glamour factor to Asian hawker-style dining in the CBD. A series of different Asian restaurants pop up for approximately 3 months in the four small kitchens. That means you can return again and again and try something new! HWKR’s only permanent resident is social enterprise cafe Manymore which opens before the main kitchens.

Traditional hawker food it’s not….but it is a lot of fun. And the genius thing is the variety – there’s literally something for everybody. That makes it a great option for families any day of the week, but on the first Sunday of the month it’s an especially family-friendly affair.

Adults get to enjoy HWKR dishes while HWKR staff supervise the kids and entertain with face painting, colouring-in, toy stations and games at no extra cost.

If you’re feeling really lazy you don’t even have to leave your table to order. Download the HWKR app and order from your phone, and your food will be delivered to your table when it’s ready. Oh and they don’t take cash, only card.

For our lunch we try ‘gourmet Asian fusion’ hot dogs by Sydney’s Ume Dogs and a Golden Gaytime Puffle by ZOMG Things, a Puffle x Poklol collab also from Sydney.

The space offers lots of seating options, though prime spots are for the comfy stalls facing the Sunday Funday action at the back of HWKR. For little bottoms there are numerous high chairs and a disabled toilet a short walk away.
