Howdy Hello Hola Hey Ho! - The Asian Street Food Lovers Should Try

Located on the 5th floor of the Grand Indonesia West Mall, the establishment - which is owned and managed by the OPCO group, which also runs other eateries in the city such as Portico, Yellowfin and Stark Bierhaus – the newly opened Howdy Hello Hola Hey Ho! (or also called Hey Ho Asian Street Eatery and Bar) offers you Southeast Asian delicacies, especially the diverse flavors of Thai, Vietnamese, Malaysian and Singaporean street food.


The menu focuses on Hawker-style food, as it is approachable and familiar; as well as being bold, vibrant and layered with personality. Dishes are based around sharing – in true Asian spirit – and fingers encouraged to be used! Howdy Hello Hola Hey Ho! is about experiencing exciting, flavorsome food within a buzzing, personable atmosphere. It is a place to eat-drink-socialize – the trinity of good times, guaranteed.


The dining area, adorned with a cozy yellowish dim light, is divided into two parts - the non-smoking area on the inside and the smoking area outdoors. On one side of its wall, there is a vibrant illustration of a street food scene in Vietnam.


For an appetizer or snack, you can opt for Salt and Pepper Squid with a chili sauce. The squid is soft and the chili sauce is not too hot yet is still tasty and a bit sour.


As for the main dish, there are several on Hey Ho's popular menu, such as Bahn Mi (shredded chicken or grilled pork, pate, pickles and coriander wrapped in a thick baguette). The bread most commonly found in Vietnam is a single serving baguette, therefore the term bahn mi synonymous with this type of bread.


Malay Butter Prown bits in the picture are killer in taste–the toasted grated coconut reveals layer upon layer of complex flavors–buttery, salty, sweet, spicy, and garlicky working off one another seamlessly and perfectly. The strong flavors and aroma from the curry leaves tend to blanket the overall dish, allowing the unique set of flavors interwoven with each other to surface and make up the very essence of this dish.


Another medium bite, you should try Uncle Ho’s Wing, chicken wings with glaze, crispy garlic, and herbs. These are crunchy and the chicken taste so smooth inside. You can actually smell the herbs aroma when it comes to you.


Partly a bar, Hey Ho also serves alcoholic drinks and liquor at a reasonable price. One of its highlighted drinks is called Ho Chi Mama, shaken absolute blue, midori, fresh squeeze of lemon, simple syrup, served with mixed fruit ball, selasih and yakult on the side. The drink itself is actually a refreshing and sweet.

You do not need to worry, because all the dishes here matches the Asian tongue so it will be very friendly to the tongue. Which is also not to be missed, dessert from Thailand, Khao Neeo Mamuang aka mango sticky rice that you seldom find elsewhere. This mango mania can be a good option. It comprises white sweet sticky rice served with slices of mango and a slice of mango sorbet. The combination of the warm sticky rice and the cold mango sorbet creates a surprising sensation in the mouth.

Hey Ho opens daily from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. on weekdays and until midnight on Fridays and Saturdays.
