The 100 Hoxton Story
Designed by Yaojen Chuang, the striking interior reflects the aesthetic of the Bauhaus-inspired former council block in which the restaurant now resides. The menu is the brainchild of Mediterranean-trained Pinoy chef Francis Puyat, formerly of NOPI, Yotam Ottolenghi’s West-End masterpiece. For 100 Hoxton, Francis has set out to create an innovative but accessible menu, mouth-watering in its simplicity and heart-warming in its prices.
The food concept is simple, small sharing plates drawing mainly from Asian flavours, spices and ingredients. The ambience is laid-back, the drinks are smooth…and yes, almost all of our dishes are gluten-free but please ask our staff if you have particular dietary requirements.
Executive Chef – Francis Puyat
Originally from Mindoro in the Philippines, Francis “Ace” Puyat came to London with his parents in 1997 and immediately set about taking on the London culinary establishment.
Initially trained in classical French styles of cooking, his first role was as an events chef for the Absolute Taste group and various positions in their restaurant properties. Picked up by Yotam Ottolenghi’s NOPI in 2011, Francis has flourished and developed his great love of Eastern spices and Indian, Asian and Middle Eastern cooking. Francis has designed a menu that puts flavour – both complex and bold – at the centre of everything.
