Plymouth’s first street food emporium is now open


Supha's Street Food Emporium

An imaginative new food experience bringing freshly cooked street food to Plymouth has opened on the waterfront in Sutton Harbour.

Street food emporium Supha’s offers an Asian-style menu cooked to order in an open kitchen with fresh fish, sourced daily from nearby Plymouth Fisheries, kept in a wet counter for customers to choose from.

The relaxed dining environment also enjoys spectacular views of Plymouth’s wa-terfront from its prime position at East Quay House in Sutton Harbour, close to The China House pub and overlooking the marina and historic harbour.

Supha’s officially opened to the public on Thursday, February 11th and will be open from Wednesday-Saturday between 12noon and 10pm, and on Sundays from 12noon until 9pm.

Some of the many varied dishes on offer will include:

  • * Noodle soup
  • * Som tam – a green papaya salad
  • * Pu pad pong ga-ree – a Thai stir-fry dish which can be cooked with crab, chicken, squid or fish
  • * Pan-fried squid in garlic and black pepper
  • * Barbecued skewered prawns with garlic, chili and coriander
  • * Fresh steamed local mussels with basil coated in chili and lime sauce
  • * Stir-fried cucumber with egg, garlic and black pepper
  • * Stir fried pak choi with garlic, black pepper, chili and oyster sauce

The venue is the brainchild of Plymouth entertainment entrepreneur and events organiser Dan Thompson and his partner, experienced Thai chef Suphawadee Kaden. The couple co-created Supha’s, pronounced ‘supers’, which is named af-ter Suphawadee.

Dan Thompson, co-creator of Supha’s, said: “We are delighted to finally be open, and looking forward to offering something totally new for Plymouth in a very untraditional format with a bright, colourful dining area, and an open kitchen so diners can talk to the chef directly and explain how they’d like their meal to be cooked.

“The emphasis will be very much on serving up seasonal produce and sharing fresh food with street-food style cooking and strong Asian influences including Thai cuisine as well as dishes from Malaysia, Laos, Myanmar and Vietnam.

“There is an extensive vegetarian selection and lots of our dishes are naturally gluten free too.

“Customers can enjoy them alongside one of the best views that any food estab-lishment in Plymouth can offer, right on the city’s stunning waterfront where they can watch the sun set over the harbour.”

Paul James, Asset Manager for Sutton Harbour Holdings plc, said: “It’s fan-tastic to see Supha’s open in Sutton Harbour bringing something completely new to Plymouth, and offering a very innovative new food experience for the city thanks to the vision of Dan and Suphawadee.

“As well as reinforcing Sutton Harbour’s now well established reputation as a food haven with so many fantastic food and drink venues in the historic waterfront quarter, Supha’s also offers very special views across the harbour from its prime position at East Quay House, and we’re sure it will prove popular with diners.”
