Monjurul Hoque

Managing Director | Barocde Restaurant Group

There are two kinds of people in this world – those who love to eat and those who love to eat and feed others.

Monjurul Hoque, who always has a smile on his face, fits the latter category.

By bringing the café culture in the heart of Chittagong with his Barcode restaurant group, Hoque has established himself as a trendsetter, persuading others to follow his footsteps.

He draws his inspiration from his time in Singapore from 1996 to 2001. Starting with the first location in Halishar, Barcode currently has five locations throughout the city and has recently opened in Dhaka. Monjurul recalls taking the risk of venturing outside of the family business and into the food industry. However, his endeavors have paid off given the success of the café.
