About Sugar Prawn

Thai and Vietnamese street food may get all of the attention, but the Malaysian or hawker market food served up at Sugar Prawn is worthy of some spotlight all of its own. Located on Smith Street over in Collingwood and painted in a kitschy prawn coloured pink, this is a restaurant with a lot of charm. Alongside the best street food from Malaysia at Melbourne’s Sugar Prawn you’ll find obscure cocktail concoctions, and a quirky decoration or two.

Had the best ribs I've ever eaten! Not something you would expect at a Malaysian restaurant but it was a nice surprise. The small meals which we had as entrees were also excellent, different and interesting. Highly recommend this great little eatery
