This Urban Hawker is not like hawker centres in SG.

It is more atas, to showcase sg hawker foods, but make it look quality.

Furthermore, the location is near Times Square, one of the most expensive real estate in America.

Target are occasional diners, not meant a staple like sg here.

At least what they are offering is close to authentic SG foods as there can be.

Not surprised. I paid more than that for Asian food in the USA. Their income levels are definitely much higher than sinkieland.

I’m sure you’d pay $26 for a bowl of prawn noodles.
Yes why not. If people earns decent wage. Like I will go pek Kio eat prawn noodle but I won't go to restaurant or hotel eat prawn noodles.
