As if December wasn’t already exciting enough with the promises of Summer and Christmas, now there’s Malaysian style street food to look forward to! The creative folks responsible for Madam Woo will be opening a new, more casual eatery Hawker & Roll at Sylvia Park.
The idea was first born off Madam Woo’s popular Hawker rolls. Acclaimed Madam Woo chef Josh Emett and business partner Fleur Caulton realised there was a market for more a more casual restaurant. From this the idea for Hawker & Roll was born.
“Fast-casual is a growing space in New Zealand, and we’re thrilled to become a part of the
industry with Hawker & Roll,” says Emett. “It’s really special for us to bring the vibrant and
colourful energy that Madam Woo is known for to a new space. Hawker & Roll is fast-casual,
but we want it to have style and personality alongside irresistible eats at an affordable price.”
“We knew we had something really special with Madam Woo,” says Emett. “The Hawker Roll
is a crowd favourite, people started raving about it from the moment we opened our doors.
But we didn’t want to stop there: the hospitality industry is all about being innovative, so we
thought, we have this well-loved dish, how can we make it even better?”
The menu at Hawker & Roll will feature the same delicious Malaysian flavours as Madam Woo but with a twist.
“We want it to be quick and fun,” says Caulton. “The brand is a bit quirky, and we are keen
on making sure that carries through to the new space.”
Hawker & Roll will offer more options and flavours of the Hawker Roll currently available at
Madam Woo. The menu will also include a variety of healthy sides and add-on’s, as well as a
selection of grab and go options for those in a rush.
Hawker & Roll will open its doors at Sylvia Park on December 4, 2017. For more information,
