Honestly, who doesn’t enjoy a good dumpling, or twenty? Very unsure. But one thing we do know is that the people of Perth don’t mind the juicy little morsels, especially from legendary dumplingeers, Miss Chow’s; voted as one of the best spots in Perth by your fellow Western Australians (WA). And now, the dumpling mecca has opened a second venture in Mt Hawthorn, Lucy Luu.
The family-run venue offers more than just mouthwatering dumplings however, and brings a more bar and bite-style of goods and flavours with a South-East Asian heritage. Keeping with the Miss Chow’s roots, Lucy Luu will be keeping quality at the forefront of their eatery utilising high-end WA produce.
The fare you can expect to stuff your face with see the likes of sriracha prawn toast with saffron aioli, deep-fried lamb ribs with xin jiang crust, and steak tartare with Szechuan spice and wasabi aioli – would you take a look at that.
With the new establishment, comes a new Head Chef, Aldren Teo known for his previous work at Emily Taylor Bar & Kitchen in Fremantle, and Australian Venue Co’s Market Grounds in Perth CBD. Aldren has meticulously curated the Lucy Luu menu, and will also oversee the food across the Miss Chow’s Group to bring some extra flavour to the thriving eateries.
“Lucy Luu’s menu is centred around familiar flavours from childhood with three profiles of sweet, salty and spicy. It’s about transporting people back to the food we ate as kids, whilst featuring fresh WA produce,” Aldren says.
Founder of the Miss Chow’s Group, Jacquie Chan will be journeying the new Mt Hawthorn locale with her two daughters who will help drive Lucy Luu full speed into Perth’s vibrant bar scene by introducing an international wine list and cocktail menu that will stick around on your palate’s cheeky memory.
Jacquie says, “The Lucy Luu concept provides the perfect setting for people to meet, mingle and enjoy high-end food and drink, putting both Australian and South-East Asian heritage under the spotlight.
“It will be particularly exciting to bring our Head Chef Aldren Teo into the mix, further amplifying our brand of quality and authentic food,” Jacquie finishes.
Lucy Luu is well and truly open and ready to serve your salivating gob from Wednesdays through to Sundays between 11am and 10pm – feast up!
