Being both broke and having a large appetite, I’m always on the lookout for cheap eats. I’ve been hearing some good things about a shop, known as Hawker’s Delight, that specializes in Malaysian food at very affordable prices. I’ve recently had a chance to check them out. They are a small casual eatery with a limited number of seating; you order at the front counter and they bring you your food once it’s ready. During my visit, I had their Roti Prata, Chicken Curry Noodle, and Fried Kuey Teow.
Roti Prata ($2.75):
This is served with a small side of curry for dipping. The bread itself was seriously just fantastic: warm, soft and flaky. The curry also had a great fragrance of coconut as well as a slightly sweet flavour that paired great with the bread.
Chicken Curry Noodle ($9.05):
This contained noodles in a curry broth with potatoes and chicken. The chicken itself wasn’t really curried however, but was rather like Hainese chicken that was added to the noodles. It was tasty however, and was tender, juicy and well-seasoned. The noodles had a nice bouncy texture and the broth was very flavourful with just a slight bit of heat. It was quite a good portion for $9.05, and filling.
Fried Kuey Teow ($9.05):
This consisted of broad rice noodles stir fried with egg, bean sprout, prawns, fish cake, shredded chicken and green vegetable. You can have it spicy or non-spicy; I had the spicy version and found it to have just a slight kick without being overly hot. I really enjoyed the texture of the noodles, which were chewy and bouncy. There were only a few prawns, but a good amount of fish cakes. The portion size was not enormous, but more than generous for just $9.05.
I’m thoroughly impressed by Hawker’s Delight. All of their food was very tasty, and their prices are very reasonable, especially given their quality and reasonably generous portions. Definitely check this place out if you’re looking for some affordable food, or just tasty food in general.
