The hawker centres of Singapore and Malaysia are legendary hotbeds of Asian cooking, and ones that definitely aim at one end of the market. This is where fresh cooked, down to earth street food is produced and consumed and where the common man or woman goes to pick up a quick feed on the go. That isn’t to say that this fast food is poor quality, however: quite the opposite. The standard is unbelievably high, and if you want to try some of these Asian specialities in Perth, then you need to get yourself down to Mr Hawker on Guildford Road in Maylands. They’re easily accessed via Maylands railway station, and when you arrive, you’ll be met with a menu that takes in Malaysian, Singaporean and Chinese specialities from Nasi lemak to Penang kiew toy, curry laksa and Hakka pork ball noodles among just a few of the options. The beauty of the hawker centre is the diversity of dishes, however, so head in yourself and try it out. It’s BYO too, with only a dollar corkage – so book a table now!
Curry laksa is creamy and spicy. Good ingredients such as seafood and yong tau foo and veg!
Have become a favourite joint of ours as we find the prawn mee soup is one of the best in Perth!
The set meal special comes with a canned drink presents good value for money.
Saw a dish not on the menu and tried. It was superb! The fried fish vermicelli was very tasty and generous portion. Will be back soon!
had the roti canai that was sensational - hokkien noodle with the most sweet luscious sauce ever and sweet and sour pork with rice - that too was big chunks of lovely pork with not much batter chinese tea pot for 1 ($1) total just under $30 for 2- will definitely be going back!
Great Malaysian food. Help yourself service, but very quick. All the food is cooked fresh and is wonderfully Malaysian. Ambience is a bit cafeteria like with TV going and lots of people everywhere, but with such good food, who needs anything else!
The prawn noodle soup is very authentic and tasty and being a little spicy is perfect for cold weather. The Ipoh Kway Teow soup has a clear, simple broth that complements the fish balls and cakes very well.
Second time here, decided to try the rice dishes, the sweet and sour rice is good! The marmite pork rib rice was not bad but prefer more gravy otherwise quite dry. Lor mee was average as sauce not sticky enough
We’ve been coming here for awhile now. Our favourites include sweet and sour pork rice, char kway teow & prawn noodle soup. Tried a new dish, claypot yee mien which was nice too!
Great Malaysian meals of rice, noodles and dishes. The sweet and sour pork rice was delicious with good size portions. They also have a self service station for water and condiments.
