Why called Nudo?

“Now and again we get people curiously asking how the name NUDO came about. Apart from the odd guesses of it ranging from an anagram of UDON or a random catchy two syllable word or the fact that is also the Italian for naked, well ……. its none of those! 

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 earlier 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. I loved them however way they were made, it did not matter whether they were cooked in soup, stir fried, braised, poached or even mixed with mashed potato, I simply adored noodles! Knowing I enjoyed noodles so much my parents, most occasions, before they prepared noodles to eat would tease and ask me, “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!
