Who is Hawkerboi? The mysterious supper club taking Dubai by storm

Scrolling through Instagram last week, one particular post caught our attention. A flickering neon sign on a black background with the word ‘Hawkerboi’ traced in an elusive red font. The Instagram caption reads, “Supper club dates dropping soon…stay tuned, limited spaces.”

While there is no shortage of supper clubs in Dubai, this new concept has gained momentum fast, thanks to the mystery surrounding the secret chef. Is it someone already known to the industry, a celebrity, or perhaps an unknown? Only a few people are in the know regarding the identity of Hawkerboi, and they are keeping well and truly shtum!

Hosted at a series of ever-changing secret locations, which have sold out within minutes based on recent experience. The Hawkerboi supper club presents a spicy eight-course experimental menu of primarily South East Asian cuisine, with each dish using fire cooking only.

Dishes presented so far have included soft shell crab doughnuts, a Singaporean inspired seafood tower, 24hr Wagyu short rib and flame thrower duck.

So how do we get involved? We hear you cry! To book a table at one of the elusive supper clubs, which can host tables of up to eight guests at a time, send a DM to @hawker.boi on Instagram.

So who is Hawkerboi, the food industry disruptor of Dubai who is being likened to Banksy? You’ll have to attend the Hawkerboi supper club and find out…
