The entrepreneurial duo behind Rosa’s Thai Cafe have now brought Hoh Sek Noodles to St. Katharine Docks.
Hoh Sek – which is Cantonese for ‘delicious’ – is a celebration of the world’s finest noodles and inspired by co-founder Saiphin Moore’s extensive travels across Asia and her time living in Hong Kong.
Hoh Sek is housed inside an impressive water-side pavilion in the heart of the marina, known locally as the ‘Round House with the Green Roof’, and offers a casual dining experience throughout the day, with the option for customers to eat in at one of the tables inside or outside on the terrace, or order to go.
In the evenings, Hoh Sek transforms into a 40-cover sit-down restaurant service, including eight seats at the kitchen bar counter, and a further 44 seats available outside on the terrace during summer months.
“Noodles have always held a special place in my heart as it was my first noodle shop, which I set up when I was 14 in Thailand, that first started me on my career as a chef, says Saiphin Moore.
“Years later, Alex and I met in Hong Kong and we fell in love with the street food noodles there. You can buy great and tasty noodles from almost every street stall and they’re also served in the more traditional restaurants. They’re a real symbol of the city’s thriving food scene, so this is what we now want to bring to London and share with everybody.
“Alex and I live close to St. Katharine Docks, and this is where the idea for Rosa’s Thai Cafe was born when we first moved to London, so seems fitting we are returning here to launch Hoh Sek in our own neighbourhood. We hope everybody will fall in love with amazing noodles like we have.”
