Savor Authentic Small Plates at Hawkers Asian Street Food Near Our Bethesda Apartment

From the time-tested family recipes to the artful handling of the wok, there are aspects of Asian street food that should not be compromised. That’s true whether the bites are actually being crafted on the streets of Tokyo or in the kitchen at Hawkers Asian Street Food, not far from our metropolitan apartments. The chefs here make sure they’re staying as true to authentic Asian cuisine as their counterparts halfway across the globe.

That’s why customers keep coming back for the unique small plates like the Malaysian roti flatbread served with a spicy curry sauce, the Chinese barbecue pork bao buns, and the pork bone broth soup dumplings. If you want to taste-test a bunch of different bites, stop in for happy hour when bao buns and beers are all half off, and a selection of other small plates are offered at a discount. Order a few rounds of the bao like the Seoul hot chicken and char siu with spring rolls, wok-fired edamame, and Korean or Japanese fried chicken. Wash it all down with an imported Asian lager or a shot of sake at Hawkers.
