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).
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!

- If you need a noodle fix, opt for soba noodles. Soba noodles are made from buckwheat flour and contain more fiber and protein than your regular noodles. It’s also high in a slew of vitamins and minerals that you won’t get from your regular noodles. #happyhealthyawesome #alternative #buckwheat #soba #japanesefood #BTMeats - June 26, 2017
- If you’re in the mood for a sweet but healthy treat, chia pudding is always a good choice. I always have a jar of pre-soaked chia ready for snacking in the fridge. Today, I added chopped up strawberries, topped it with almond flakes, and sprinkled on some Stevia and cinnamon on top. #happyhealthyawesome #chiapudding #chiaph #sweettooth - June 22, 2017
- Today’s big breakfast is a Keto-friendly BLTEA sandwich. Bacon, lettuce, tomato, and an egg in a freshly-baked almond flour bun. Believe it or not, all of it took just 15 minutes to make. Including the bun. #happyhealthyawesome #keto #highfatlowcarb #quickhealthymeals - June 22, 2017
