Take a trip across the bridge to St. Pete’s restaurant haven Central Ave. for a bite at Hawkers Asian Street Food. There, brunch is more than just a meal but “a state of mind”. Their brunch menu combines Asian breakfast faves like the Char Siu Baos with specialty cocktails like the Butterfly Effect. Want to add a few extras to your table? Order a side of curry tots or congee cheese grits. Reservations aren’t available at the moment but they do recommend guests join a waitlist for the day they plan to “level up, squad up, and brunch up”.
Hawkers Asian Street Food is located at 1235 Central Ave. Their brunch is Saturday-Sunday 11 a.m.-3 p.m. also.
