Características

Los Hawker centres crecieron en áreas urbanas siguiendo los patrones de la rápida urbanización existente en los años 1950s y 1960s. En muchos casos dieron lugar a problemas de higiene, debido a la falta de preparación del personal responsable. Hoy en día la preparación y estilode estos centros se ha propagado fuera del Sureste Asiático y es popular en Estados Unidos en forma de food court existente en los centros comerciales.
