Local Eats in Orlando ~ Hawkers Asian Street Fare

Mills50 is an eclectic neighborhood in Orlando; it's fun area to do a little exploring and check out the local shops and eateries.  Hawkers is one of the spots I enjoy visiting when I'm in the neighborhood.  Hawkers Asian Street Fare is somewhat new to the restaurant scene; They opened their doors shorty after we moved to town in the spring of 2011.

While there is street parking on Mills they also have a lot as well.  I like the look and feel of the restaurant.  The outside is Asian and the inside is a bit industrial with the shiny metallic walls.  Along with indoor dinning there is a nice patio on the side.

I was a bit surprised to see that Hawkers had a good selection of craft beers.  There were plenty of good options and they offer a 2-4-1 Happy Hour everyday from 3pm. -6pm.

Craft Beer List at Hawkers Asian Street Fare
Hawkers is a great place to come on a date or with a group of people.  They have a small plate menu with about two dozen options to choose from.  The small plates are their specialties, but you will also find noodles, rice and a few specialty items on the menu as well.  

We visit we enjoy getting a number of small plates; we find that three to four plates are plenty for us.  I like the being able to sample more of the menu this way.   While we've enjoyed all that we have tried here my favorites are the wings; these are really delicious.  There are a number of seasoning to choose from and you can pick what style you would like them cooked.  I also love the Coconut Curry Shrimp served with a coconut curry dip.

I've been during lunch and it can get a little busy.  I enjoy coming in for an early dinner and taking advantage of their Happy Hour.  Hawkers can be a great spot to enjoy some good food at a decent price.  It made my list last year for Tasty Cheap Local Eats in Orlando.

The  Mills 50 district is known as the "Intersection of Culture and Creativity"  There are a number of local eateries in the district serving up some tasty food, and Hawkers Asian Street Fare is one of my favorites.
