“Kallun your nudo is ready!"
Now and again we get people curiously asking how the name ‘Nudo’ came about.
The name bears great significance dating back from my early childhood memories. As a British born Chinese, I was raised by my parents whom had migrated to the UK as first generation Chinese. It took my parents a while to get accustomed to learning and speaking English. Through my recollection of them speaking any word of it in those days was small, I quite simply recalled them speaking only in broken English!
As a young child I loved food, but my favorite even to this day has to be noodles. Knowing I enjoyed noodles so much my parents, most occasions, before they prepared noodles to eat would tease and shout, “Kallun your nudo is ready!”
So I suppose that is how the word NUDO had stuck in my mind ever since. In early 2009, Nudo Noodle House was opened in Newcastle and was coincidentally named in memory of my wonderful parents!
