    Hawker Fare Food Picks:

    Hawker Fare Oakland Beef Larb

    Beef “larb” – grilled beef steak salad, red onions, mint, cilantro and toasted rice powder ($7.50) rare beef, mild zestiness, lots of cilantro, onions, adding a ton of flavor.

    Hawker Fare Oakland Green Beans

    Blistered Green Beans – tossed in caramelized ginger “prhik king”, smoked pork bacon and dried shrimp ($7.00) looked unappealing but in the end were reasonable. They could have gone a little easier with the coating.

    Hawker Fare Oakland Kao mun gai poached chicken

    Our “Kao Mun Gai” – poached chicken served with a salted mung bean sauce, fresh cucumber and cilantro leaves ($9.50) contained a ton of high quality chicken meat that required the accompanying sauce.

    Hawker Fare Oakland Pork Belly

    24hr Pork Belly – Berkshire pork “tom kiem” style, five spice and sweet soy, with preserved vegetable mustard ($9.50) was an artery clogging dish consisting of 50% fat but well worth it.

    Hawker Fare Oakland Rice Congee Jook

    “Kao Piak” – rice congee with 1000 y/o eggs, ginger and scallions with chicken cracklings and fried garlic ($7.50) was well done and huge. Bland jook, but good add ins.

    Cone – milk Straus Organic Dairy soft serve ice cream in a old fashion sugar cone ($3.00) was fun and had a slight condensed milk flavor.

    Hawker Fare Oakland Affogato

    Hawker “Affogato” – condensed milk soft serve with a shot of hot Thai coffee ($5.00) a must for coffee fans. Pretty strong coffee.
