Lovers of Asian cuisine, get excited – Hawker & Roll, the booming fast-casual Malaysian street-eats restaurant that has won the hearts of Kiwis across the country, is opening in the Bay for the first time.
Hawker & Roll is set to bring its unmissable street-eats experience to the all-new Observatory dining lane in the Tauranga Crossing precinct on Thursday, April 4th. As the newest shopping centre in the Bay of Plenty, the Tauranga Crossing is the ultimate destination for curious diners.
Founded under progressive restaurant group Go To Collection, Hawker & Roll is a fun and fresh spinoff of the group’s beloved restaurant Madam Woo, which will extend to four sites across the country when it lands in Tauranga.
One of the most popular dishes on Madam Woo’s menu – the Hawker Roll – was such a favourite, it sparked inspiration for a dedicated eatery. Last year alone, half a million Hawker Rolls were consumed by foodies around the country. The flaky Roti Canai is filled with a selection of vegetarian, seafood or meat choices and sits alongside a menu of other sought after items such as laksa, steamed dumplings, and Malaysian nasi lemak.
Go To Collection’s founder, Fleur Caulton, is thrilled to be bringing Hawker & Roll to New Zealand’s fastest growing city. Having established the group’s three brands Hawker & Roll, Madam Woo and Rata with business partner and celebrity chef, Josh Emett, Fleur offers a wealth of experience in the hospitality space and a passion for providing diners with exciting eating options that are healthy and fresh.
“We’re looking forward to dipping our toes in the Tauranga dining space for the first time to share our love of Asian-fusion cuisine with Bay-based foodies. As Kiwis are becoming more and more adventurous with their dining choices, locals are in for a treat with Hawker & Roll’s take on Malaysian cuisine in a comfortable and fun environment,” Fleur says.
With the demand for fast-casual dining growing every year, Hawker & Roll provides the perfect dining solution to those looking to satisfy their cravings for a fresh and adventurous meal in a no-fuss setting. Hungry diners are particularly sure to appreciate the fast service with no compromise on quality or flavour.
Caulton says that along with providing customers with a ‘go-to’ dining option, sustainability forms the heart of the business and its values.
“At Go To Collection, we actively eliminate our reliance on processes that negatively impact the environment, and only serve whole, free range products. All our straws are either metal or paper, our packaging is all made from renewable and sustainable resources, and our menus are printed on recycled paper. We’re constantly making conscious choices such as these to improve our footprint on the earth and make a great dining experience from start to finish.”
Diners can enjoy the Malaysian-fusion experience of Hawker & Roll at the Tauranga Crossing, or delivered via Uber Eats, from Thursday, April 4th 2019.
