Nestled in the corner of Cornelia Street is Chomp Chomp, a Singaporean hawker restaurant whose atmosphere embodies Asian rustic chic. What is “hawker food?” Hawker food is a type of cheap Singaporean street food, usually served from carts parked on street corners. However today, instead of street carts hawker centers—an eating arena resembling that of a food court—have emerged serving mouth-watering dishes worth the long flight.
Thankfully for New Yorkers or those visiting New York, Chomp Chomp serves Singaporean hawker food that will satiate cravings for the time being. We highly recommend the Hah Zheung Gai—chicken wings with shrimp paste, Chinese celery, crispy garlic, and chilies. This dish is composed of savory and spicy flavors that will take your taste buds on a trip. In addition to the chicken wings, the noodle dishes such as Hokkien Mee are worth a try as well.
