A new restaurant has come to the city of Cincinnati.
On June 2, the new restaurant Hawkers Alley celebrated its grand opening in Cincinnati.
At the new restaurant, you can find small plates such as okonomiyaki (which is a savory Japanese pancake that's made with shredded cabbage and eggs and that's topped with Japanese mayo, Japanese BBQ sauce, shaved dashi, and seaweed), takoyaki (fried octopus balls), spicy crispy eggplants, grilled corn on the cob, and popcorn chicken, which can be tossed in one of these sauces: salt & basil, hawkers' sauce, spicy Korean BBQ sauce, and cumin & spices.
Also on the menu are sandwiches such as the hawkers' burger (which comes on a brioche bun and comes with a fresh beef patty, American cheese, crispy onion, lettuce, tomato, hawkers' sauce, and mayo), crispy chicken sandwich (which is topped with lettuce, tomato, onion, and spicy mayo), and lava katsu sandwich, which comes with either a crispy pork or chicken cutlet that's stuffed with cheese, lettuce, pickled cucumber, tomato, and Japanese mayo.
The restaurant also offers a wide variety of meats on skewers. You can get chicken satay, teriyaki chicken, black pepper cilantro pork, lemongrass pork, black pepper cilantro beef, cumin spiced lamb, salt and pepper squid, salt and lime shrimp, and more. If you're looking for a vegetarian option, the restaurant serves skewers like mixed vegetables, spiced tofu, and king oyster mushrooms.
Hawkers Alley also has Japanese curry, which comes with steamed white rice and your choice of protein. Protein options include crispy chicken cutlet, pork cutlet, crispy tofu, grilled chicken, or Japanese croquette.
Here is what a customer wrote in a Google review:
Very helpful staff! Food was amazing, I especially liked the pork teriyaki skewer, with the beef lemongrass a VERY close second for me! All with very nice art on the walls and good music playing. I'm already planning on coming back with friends soon.
