Everyone's favorite flavors of Asia come together in Hawker Lane, a Kowloon-style alleyway complete with little wooden stools and tables. Each street-inspired food stall bursts with authentic flavours from China, Japan, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam, which means arriving at a decision about what to order can be a challenge. So here is a brief overview of some highly recommended dining options in Hawker Lane.

Makanai Ramen Noodle House

Tucked into the back corner of Hawker Lane, this tiny Japanese stall is the place to go for excellent ramen. For dessert, try their sweet rice daifuku which come in unusual flavours such as green tea, mango, chocolate, vanilla and strawberry.

Dumplings & Co

Reminiscent of a Beijing hutong, the jiaozi, baozi and dim sum at Dumplings & Co. are well worth the visit. Order the steamer of mixed dumplings if you cannot decide, but the Shanghai soup dumplings (xiao long bao) are super delicious too.

Jim's Kitchen

Definitely try the Malaysian-style Penang assam laksa or char kway teow which come straight out of the steaming woks at Jim's Kitchen. The Hainanese chicken and stir-fried crystal spaghetti with Xo sauce should also hit the spot.

Lamb & Cumin

This place pumps out barbecue lamb skewers by the plate load. These skewers are served covered in authentic Xinjiang spices which will have you coming back for more.

Madame Nhu's

Step back in time to old Saigon at Madame Nhu's. The Vietnamese pho noodle soup is very popular here, however the summer rolls and banh mi make an ideal choice if you're looking for a fresh Asian snack.
