Re: “Hawker Fare Aims to Go Out With a Bang

I used to work a block away from HF, and I ate there something like 3x a week for a year+, because it was f'ing spectacular. Not only was the food great, but the staff was great as well.

In the waning days of the job I had in Uptown, things were rough. Emotionally draining. Utterly, soul-crushingly miserable. I was walking, dejected, back to the parking lot at the end of a long day, and A came jogging out of the place and said, "Hang on." He went back inside & made me an ice cream cone. I may have teared up a little.

There are a lot of things I loved about Hawker Fare. The style of the place. The people. The great food. Sometimes a bit out of my comfort zone. Always interesting. I was proud that place was Oakland.

And as long as I live, I'll never forget that ice cream cone.
