Perth is home to Australia’s first-ever crowdfunded restaurant, Lucky Chan’s Laundry & Noodlebar, the brainchild of the team behind The Classroom and Cocktail Gastronomy.
Rome wasn’t built in a day; however the foundation of Lucky Chan’s was laid in 60 thanks to nearly 800 supporters who pledged over $112,000 to their crowdfunding campaign.
Since opening in April, Lucky Chan’s has been a bustling full house, dishing out servings of house made dumplings and ramen goodness, with long cues spilling onto William Street late into the evening. Yes, it’s open for dinner until 2am on the weekend!
To the discerning passerby Lucky Chan’s could easily be mistaken for your local laundromat; however beyond its washing machine façade awaits a delicious adventure.
Squeeze into the first floor of the three storey high establishment and it is easy to see why places like Lucky Chan’s are helping to build Perth’s culinary credentials.
