The team behind Chin Chin have announced their latest venture: a hawker food and beer hall in Windsor. Operating out of a renovated furniture shop towards the South end of Chapel Street, Hawker Hall is set to open its doors in July; serving a variety of Asian dishes along with at least thirty beers on tap.

The space will be partially modelled after the Tiong Bahru Food Centre in Singapore, which Hawker Hall founder Chris Lucas visited earlier in the year. It’s the latest feather in the restaurateur's cap, who can already boast Chin Chin, Baby and Kong BBQ to his name.

According to Good Food, the menu at Hawker Hall will include typical market-style favourites, including barbeque, dumplings, noodles and curries. The kitchen will be manned by head chef Damian Snell (formerly of Charlie Dumpling) under the watch of Lucas Group executive chef Benjamin Cooper.

Drinks-wise, expect a rotating selection of craft and boutique options from around Australia and Asia. "We were inspired by the changing beer environment," Lucas told Good Food. "We can see that the big breweries with their standardised beers are becoming a thing of the past."

Located at 98 Chapel St, Hawker Hall will seat around 180 people, although only one table will be held for bookings. Keep your eyes peeled for a full menu and operating hours later in the year.
