About Noos Noodles
Hue was born in Vietnam and grew up in Tân Định, a suburb of what was then known as Saigon. With support from the US Military it was a prosperous time in Saigon with many street Cafes. As a child, Hue grew up playing with the other kids and helping out in their family food businesses.
Hue lost both of her parents whilst she was still a teenager. It was not long after the war and a time of extreme poverty and hardship in Vietnam. Hue went to live with her uncle, a Buddhist Monk who ran a monastery in Đà Lạt in the central highlands of Vietnam. She got by working in whatever jobs were available but her dream was always owning a restaurant. In 1997 Hue came to Australia. With only limited English she started working in Vietnamese restaurants until her English improved to where she got a job as a leading hand in a large food company. After the birth of Natalie (Noo) in 2008 Hue went back to part time work in a restaurant and also had a heavy involvement in the Vietnamese and Chinese New Year Festivals where she ran food stalls selling a variety of Vietnamese specialties.
