Hawkers Asian Street Food is now open at Ashford Lane in Dunwoody, the same complex as Brown Bag Seafood, Superica, and forthcoming food hall the Hall at Ashford Lane. The restaurant opens Monday, April 24, at 5 p.m. for dinner, with lunch beginning Tuesday, April 25.

The Orlando-based restaurant serves dishes often found at “hawkers” or Asian street food stalls, like Seoul hot chicken and pork belly bao, wonton soup and curry laksa ramen, spicy dan dan noodles, and wings that come with a choice of four sauces: sweet Thai chili; Hainanese; honey sriracha; or spring onion ginger.

Hawkers in Dunwoody also offers food and drink specials during happy hour each week and half-off bao from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Thursday. In addition to seating in the dining room and at the bar, the Dunwoody location features an all-weather patio facing the green space and events area at Ashford Lane, which includes seating around fire pits and lawn games.

Founded in 2011 by Allen Lo, Kaleb Harrell, Wayne Yung, and Kin Ho, there are now multiple locations of Hawkers throughout Florida, North Carolina, Maryland, Virginia, and Texas. An Atlanta location opened in 2019 along the Eastside Beltline trail near Nina and Rafi, but closed temporarily two years later after a grease fire broke out in the kitchen. The restaurant has been undergoing a slow-progressing renovation since then and is expected to reopen by the end of 2023.

Hawkers joins locations of Paris Baguette, Hobnob, Sweetgreen, Brown Bag Seafood, Superica, Nawabi Hyderabad House, and Jeni’s Ice Creams already open at Ashford Lane. Omakase by Yun, Culinary Dropout, a second location of chef Pat Pascarella’s Neapolitan pizzeria and Italian restaurant Grana, and the food hall should all open in the coming months.
