York Hotel Singapore Celebrates 30 Years of Penang Hawker Fare

York Hotel Singapore is commemorating its 30th anniversary with its wildly popular Penang Hawker Fare that has made White Rose Cafe one of the most notable buffet destination in the Orchard area.

The renowned Penang Hawker Fare is held thrice annually and the first edition is set from March 11 to 27, 2016. Expect to enjoy unlimited servings of perennial favourites from the 12 stalls like Penang Assam Laksa, Penang Prawn Mee, Char Kway Teow, Penang Rojak, Ice Kachang, Chendol and a new stall featuring Pasembur, a Chinese-Indian style delicacy.


The buffet is priced at $29++ per adult; $20++ per child on weekdays and $33++ per adult; $23++ per child on weekends including public holidays. Lunch starts from 12.00 pm to 2.30 pm and dinner from 6.30 pm to 10.00 pm.

To mark the 30th anniversary, York Hotel will be holding two exclusive cooking workshops on March 12 and 19, where the Penang hawkers will impart their closely-guarded recipes to the public.

A nominal fee of $12 will be charged for the classes and in return, participants will receive a $12 dining voucher which can be redeemed for a la carte dining at the White Rose Café. Limited seats are available for each session.


Learn to make three perennial hawker favourites; Penang Prawn Mee, Penang Laksa and Ban Chang Kueh. Pick up tips on creating the prawn broth from scratch, discover the intricacies of cooking a great Penang Laksa and master the trick to achieving crispy Ban Chang Kueh at home.

Registration for the workshops commences on February 29, 2016 and customers can reserve a seat via email at whiterosecafe@yorkhotel.com.sg or by calling 6830 1156.

The hotel will hold a grand draw at the end of the final edition where eight pairs of patrons will win a trip to Penang; inclusive of return tickets and hotel accommodation, where they will have a once-in-a-lifetime experience embarking on an exclusive exploratory food trail led by York Hotel’s Executive Chef Charlie Tham.

Diners are in for a dose of fun with the Penang Hawkers’ Fare Tikam dip. Each receipt with a minimum spend of $80 entitles the customer a chance to draw prizes such as 30 percent discount vouchers for the next edition of the Penang Hawkers’ Fare, $12 meal vouchers for a la carte dining, and limited-edition recyclable tote bags.
