Back for the 30th edition, York Hotel’s Penang Hawkers’ Fare is still going strong.
Celebrating 30 years of slurping Penang favourites, York Hotel is justly proud of its thrice-yearly Penang Hawkers’ Fare ($29-33) in which they fly in the island’s hawkers to cook their authentic dishes here. The café has been revamped, with a new show kitchen that allows the hawkers to demonstrate a la minute live cooking and preparation of lor bak and oyster omelette. More stalls (12 this year) mean more food, and pasembur is the latest addition, a Chinese-Indian style salad. Join in the two workshops (12 & 19 Mar) where you’ll learn to make prawn broth from scratch, and master ban chang kueh at home. Spending of $80 entitles you to a lucky draw, while a grand draw after the final edition offers a trip to Penang along with an exclusive food trail. 11-27 Mar, 2-18 Sep and 16 Dec-1 Jan 2017.
