We came here to celebrate a friend's birthday. He has been reading up on reviews and was talking about it for a month or so. We thought it would be the perfect place to take him. This place is a upscale version of Asian street foods. The flavors are good, the presentation simple and clean. I ordered the pork belly which I really liked. The short rib my friend ordered was good. We did share an order of mussels which was serviced with a bowl of rice. I didn't feel full when I was done eating, but I would go back on a day where I wasn't starving.

It's right around the corner from my office, and the cuisine is a ray of light in a rather bleak array of Uptown Luncheries. It's a bit too dear for everyday, but perfect for special day lunches. I crave their dishes of noodles and greens, porkbelly and chicken combinations, and would never think of bypassing the egg on top. They call it "street food" but it's like street food reinterpreted, using very good ingredients. Don't be put off by the throngs if Pandora hipsters waiting for tables. Service is fast and efficient, and the wait is never long. Now shut up and eat your noodles.

A restaurant of fusion Asian food. They have good portion sizes and a disco ball hanging in the middle to add to your eating experience. My dish was rather on the salty side but very tasty.

A very laid back and fantastic Southeast Asian "street food" restaurant, though I would hardly describe the quality as "street" anything. The chefs know how to play with seasonal ingredients, providing a varied and fresh menu that will make you come back again and again. They are definitely known for their pork belly rice bowl, but I find their entire menu to be extremely polished and tasty. Linden St. Brewery brews a beer only for them called Supafly. It is a rice beer, packed with citrusy and crisp flavor, though lacks nearly all carbonation. It pairs quite nicely with this genre of food. Make sure to come early, as there is often a line.

Hawker Fare is located on Webster street north of Grand Avenue. Once I got there I realized that I'd previously eaten there when it was a Thai restaurant. Turns out that the current owner's mom retired and her son reopened the restaurant as a tribute to southeast Asian style street food specializing in rice bowls. Went there for lunch with a friend and we shared the short rib and the pork belly rice bowls with a runny egg on top ($9.50 each + $1.50 for the egg). The food was good, but nothing exceptional. Don't get me wrong the food was good, but just a bit pricey for what you get. as a asian streetfareto was the owners

This is one of my favorite "comfort food" restaurants in Oakland. However, last I was there they were less than accommodating to my date who was a picky eater. While I don't like picky eaters either I was embarrassed by the inflexibility of the server. There is nothing particularly outstanding about the food that warrants such rudeness. So next date I'll probably go to Homeroom. . . but I still like Hawker Fare.
