RECIPE – Hawkers’ Green Papaya & Shrimp Salad

Hawkers originally started out here in Orlando’s Mills 50 District, serving up southeast Asian street fare like the char kwa teo chicken noodles and roti canai. In recent years they have expanded to Jacksonville, Neptune Beach, and St. Petersburg.

At Hawkers, the founders Kaleb Harrell, Allen Lo, Wayne Yung and Kin Ho – all traveled the world to curate a menu of handed-down family recipes and hand-picked popular street foods from all over Asia — Korea, China, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam and Japan to be exact.

Four additional locations are slated to open throughout the Southeast in 2017 and 2018.

Tavistock Development Company, a diversified real estate firm owned by Tavistock Group, announced with Hawkers Asian Street Fare (Hawkers) that they will open a new location in the latest phase of The Grove at Isleworth located at the hard-southwest corner of South Apopka Vineland Road and Conroy-Windermere Road and adjacent to the world-renowned Isleworth Golf & Country Club, expected to be completed in the fourth quarter of 2017.
