MELBOURNE'S MOST INNOVATIVE
ASIAN FOOD DESTINATION
Future food has a new address on the Ground Floor of Eq.Tower. Interchanging vendors, app-powered ordering, new food that's friction free.
HWKR is inspired by the hawker food centres in Singapore and Malaysia, with a vision to be a contemporary space where people can socialise, and experience a rotating offer of South East Asian food right in the heart of Melbourne's CBD.
The HWKR concept was pioneered by ICD Property and occupies the ground floor of their architecturally acclaimed, award winning Eq.Tower on A'Beckett Street in Melbourne's CBD.
The HWRK brand and interior has been designed by award winning BrandWorks and Craig Tan Architects.
THE VERDICT [theurbanlist.com]
Four amazing restaurants. Two Masterchef contestants. One killer food hall. That's the basic arithmetic behind HWKR, the CBD's new hawker-style marketplace.
There isn't really a concept like this in the CBD-a giant, ultra-mod food court (do NOT let the words 'food' and 'court' put you off), with rotating pop-ups from some of the country's hottest Asian chefs.
There are four tenancies up for grabs at HWKR, and they'll be switching up every three months. For launch, the team obviously wanted to wow the punters, so they've gone with Chanteen (from ex-Masterchef winner Diana Chan), KOI Dessert Bar and Monkey's Corner (from another Masterchef wiz, Reynold Poernomo), Honk Kong's legendary sandwich shop, Bread & Beast (more on this in a sec) plus Khao from the team at Rice Paper Scissors.
Phew. Told you these guys were sh*t-hot.
