Located at the ground floor of the award winning EQ Tower in the heart of Melbourne’s CBD, HWKR will mix revolutionary elements with a traditional Asian hawker centre style offering to create a unique and interactive dining experience. Combining digital signage, neon lights, cashless transactions and app powered ordering, including ordering via WeChat – HWKR will be a premium food court experience unlike any other.

This is the first interstate offering for both venues, and an exciting opportunity to showcase the inventive, Asian inspired savoury dishes of Monkey’s Corner alongside sublime KOI desserts and cakes to the discerning Melbourne market. The pop-up will include some of Monkey’s Corner and KOI’s stand-out signature dishes such as Monkey’s Corner’s Ox Tongue and KOI’s Mango Yuzu and Nomtella cakes, alongside exciting exclusives created especially for HWKR.

MasterChef sensation and Australia’s Dessert King, Reynold Poernomo, will establish and manage the HWKR outpost for the first few weeks – ensuring an authentic and unforgettable Monkey’s Corner and KOI Dessert Bar experience in what is set to be Melbourne’s newest ‘it’ destination for a modern interpretation of South East Asian hawker centre style dining!
