A Rave Review of 101 Hawker Food House

In this post, we’ll start with the verdict- 101 Hawker Food House in Makati is one of the best finds in recent times. True story.

101 Hawker Food House, Hawkers for short, is a little eatery along Urban Avenue in Makati. They serve Singaporean food at very fair prices considering they’re in Makati where nomz are usually priced a bit higher compared to others (save for the jollijeeps).

Just last week, I blogged about Shiok, a Singaporean restaurant in Global City. Similarly, Hawkers is also a hole-in-the-wall Singaporean restaurant that caters to the after-work crowd of Makati (Shiok is for Global City yuppies). They also have similar items on the menu, with Hawkers having a bit more dishes to choose from.

For dinner for two (hungry dorks), we ordered two viands and one dish on the side. For our first viand, we chose the Green Chicken Curry to share. They also had a solo serving of this, which comes with rice and a drink.

Green Chicken Curry (p150)

The Green Chicken Curry had a healthy serving of juicy chicken meat and vegetables in mildly spicy Green Curry sauce. There is no better word for this dish but awesome. Paired with their appetizing Fragrant Rice (p20/cup), this dish was more than enough to make it a satisfying dinner.

Lechon Kawali (p100)

For viand number two, we chose a solo order of the Lechon Kawali. It comes with fragrant rice and a cup of dalandan juice. The order came in a hefty bowl of Hawker’s Fragrant Rice topped with the Lechon Kawali meat. The meat was succulent, with a layer of inviting pork fat and a thin edge of crunchy pork skin. Writing about it makes my mouth water.

Char Kway Teow (p150)

For the side order, we chose the very popular Char Kway Teow noodles. This pasta dish is made of  stir fried rice noodles seasoned with random Asian spices and mixed in with seafood. It’s delicious- just like the ones from really expensive Asian restaurants at about half the price.

Dalandan juice and Teh Tarik (p35)

For drinks, there was dalandan juice and Teh Tarik. The dalandan juice came with the Lechon Kawali order and tasted like powdered juice drink (it was free, I didn’t expect too much from it). The Teh Tarik though, was great! Teh Tarik is a typical Malaysian drink which is prepared by pouring the hot tea back and forth from a mug to a glass causing thick froth to form. At Hawker’s you can watch it being artfully poured at the counter.

Our bill came up to a total of p455 for two people. It’s not jollijeep cheap but we ate like kings and had leftovers to take home. You guys have to look for this relatively unknown eatery and try their food. You can’t get great tasting Asian food at these prices anywhere anymore. 101 Hawker Food House is higher than highly recommended!
