FROM MAY TO...
ASIAN STREET FOOD CONCEPT INSPIRED BY THE HAWKER FOOD OF SINGAPORE AND MALAYSIA
With a strong belief in ’scratch’ cooking (meaning everything is made fresh daily) Diana has worked family recipes and traditional Singaporean and Malaysian cooking techniques into her menu, with dishes evolving weekly.
What really sets CHANTEEN x HWKR’s menu apart, however, is the fact that all proteins will be finished over local Murrumbidgee coals which are constantly hand basted and fanned, giving dishes a robust and smokey flavour.
Top picks include the traditional Malaysian rice noodle dish Char Kway Teow and Chan’s personal favourite from her menu - her father’s Satay, made daily from scratch using over 20 ingredients.
MESSINA + WONDERBAO
SWEET AND SAVOURY DESSERTS
Messina are bringing a range of nostalgic and never seen before ‘mono-portions’ and plated desserts to HWKR in Melbourne.
Their fully stocked cabinet of mono-portions will include 5 custom single serve gelato items - one of which is their famous ‘Dr Evil’s Magic Mushroom Cake’ in miniature from, plus 4 brand new creations which will be exclusive to HWKR.
There’ll also be a range of Messina gelato & chocolate bon bons, available as a single taste or in gift boxes of 9. Inside the kitchen, Messina’s chefs have teamed up with Wonderbao to create a sweet and savoury menu.
Wonderbao will be taking care of the savour, while Messina will offer 4 plated desserts plus a special MESSINA X WONDERBAO collaboration on the menu which is called 'WonderBoy’- think bao doughnuts, caramel & peanut butter shakes.

KHAO BY RICE PAPER SCISSORS
Khao is the latest creation from the Rice Paper Scissors family, joining forces with HWKR to bring all our best elements to the table in a fresh setting.
A new concept, Khao brings the fun and flavour you’ve come to expect, along with new streamlined dining packages, all available for delivery, such as our BBQ Pork Belly Salad with green mango, fresh herbs, chilli, and a sweet tamarind dressing.
As the Rice Paper Scissors brand has expanded we have developed and grown to cater to a wide variety of palettes, however the question has always been, “Why no rice at Rice Paper Scissors?” KHAO is our answer. It’s all in the name.
