The story of Hawkers doesn’t revolve around singular talent in the kitchen.

The goal of Hawkers was always to bring the experience of eating at a hawker stall on the streets of Asia. Thusly, four friends brought the concept to life in Orlando in 2011. Since then they’ve been celebrating the recipes and flavors of generations past that are now still being enjoyed today — all the way here to the Atlanta Beltline

Kaleb Harrell and Allen Lo are two of the founding members of Hawkers. We caught up earlier this summer so I could hear their story and how they’ve grown the restaurant concept over the years.


Many thanks to The James Room for hosting on the Beltline to record this episode. Hawkers was still under construction and they were kind and gracious to let use the back room. Thanks, friends!
