After a brief closure, The Original Hoy-Ka has relocated down Hollywood Blvd to newer digs decked out with exposed rafters and weathered wood. Not a bad look for a Thai restaurant, especially with all the kitschy decor that tends to pervade the places in the area. Hok-Ya had previously been Ord Noodles, sporting a solid collection of traditional dishes like BBQ pork and pad see ew in the aftermath of the drama that was Ord.
The incredibly popular and lauded Ord Noodles became embroiled in a dispute that eventually resulted in Pa-Ord opening shortly after with a similar program. In the fallout, Hoy-Ka picked up at the Hollywood Blvd corner after that and continued a familiar noodle-centric menu, leading to a few years of success and plenty of Yelp love.
This new Hoy-Ka outlet takes over the old Safe House, a ho-hum sports bar that depended on delivery to stick around. Hoy-Ka serves from 10 a.m. to midnight daily.
