Love the marmite pork ribs at Hawker’s – quality Malaysian food in Perth!!

This week must be the week of favourites. I dined at my favourite casual Thai restaurant Ploy Thai last night and tonight I had dinner at Hawkers, my all-time favourite Perth Malaysian restaurant.

Was so excited when we rocked up and managed to get a seat in 10 minutes – normally it’s at least a 20 minute wait and Hawker’s don’t take bookings so we’re normally found loitering out the front with a cider or beer :) (it’s BYO)

We didn’t mess around, as soon as we were seated we ordered! To start we had the milo peng which is iced milo – I thought that was useful info as I didn’t know myself and had to ask if they had iced milo. Been my latest craving especially after visiting Mamak in Sydney – which has the most amazing ice milo!!

It was nice but I think I like it a bit sweeter (I normally have 4 teaspoons of milo & 2 sugars), and the iced milo at Mamak was pretty hard to beat.

We decided go easy on the mains as burger boy & I always over order with our eyes…

First dish to arrive was the Rendang Beef which was absolutely delicious. The beef was super tender, the meat just fell apart and the sauce was really tasty, it had a bit of spice to it but not so much that I couldn’t eat it (I don’t do spice very well).

The marmite pork ribs is always the main event, if you love vegemite (or marmite) you’ll love this. Can smell the delicious aroma from 30cm above…

There’s hardly any bones which makes it easy to eat and the pork it pretty tender. The marmite pork is salty yet super tasty – make sure you have your water handy if you’re ordering this dish!

We also ordered the chicken rice which was the perfect compliment to the strong flavours of our rendang beef and marmite pork.

It was $45 all up and burger boy & I really rolled out of Hawkers. There was no room for bubble tea…or the churros from the new massive San Churros which has opened up on James Street.

Hawker’s Cuisine is fantastic value for money, they’ve recently renovated the restaurant and the Malaysian food is quality (and they make their own roti). Even better than the infamous Mamak in Sydney! :) Service is a bit slow took half an hour for our meals to come out but you don’t go there for the service!

foodie cravings

I’m a foodie who enjoys trying new food anywhere / any place (restaurants, cafes, bars, market stalls, fast food joints…anywhere just name it!) both in Perth, Western Australia and on my travels. I’m not your ordinary foodie, I’m often described as ‘fussy’ but I really really do love my food - I guess just not everything that’s put on my plate. Though, my other half, ‘burger boy’, eats most foods so I’ll be blogging about what he eats too…and as the name implies, burgers will be a regular foodie blog for all you burger lovers outthere. I love showcasing my yummy food finds with pics so I thought why not share my passion for food with other foodies with my blog, foodie cravings. Follow my food journey as I discover new keepers and rave about my all-time favourites.

    This looks like one of the nicest things I have seen in ages, i love dar meat with dark sources and this ticks those boxes. As I am half way round the world there is very little chance of me calling in to try them so I might try and make my own…… which I know is never the same but I will give it a go!
