Good Malaysian restaurant downtown on Ossington

The Hawker Bar on Ossington is a small place, 40 seats, that offers pretty good Malaysian fare at reasonable prices. Satay (chicken and pork) was good, chili sambal sting ray (skate) excellent (a favorite every time I am in a NY Malay restaurant), laksa noodle soup pretty good although it could be lighter. Did not try the rendang, a famous Malay beef curry. After the loss of quality of Matahari on Baldwin you have to go to Markham or Scarborough to find decent Malasian food - this is a welcome addition while we await the arrival of (over-hyped) Nick Lui. Chef at Hawker Bar trained in a top Thai restaurant in Melbourne, apparently.
