Lucky Chans Laundry Noodlebar, 311 William Street, Northbridge WA 6003, Phone 9227 8921.
Food Food Food … Lucky Chans Laundry Noodlebar has been a draw for me since I first heard about their crowd funding venture back in early 2014. Loved the idea of their plans and was a big fan of their other venture, The Classroom Bar. We pledged our money for their crowd-funding and couldn’t wait to see what they had achieved.
We purchased two lots of pledges. One for the launch Par-tay and just a normal dinner for two. The launch night was sensational and a thoroughly good night for food, drinks and atmosphere.
The normal dinner we claimed about three months later. The food was great, the service was abysmal, in fact, an absolute nightmare.
So, a few months later, having gotten over our bad experience, we ventured back to test the waters.
A completely different experience. Staff greeted us with a smile and showed us to a table. Our menus and water were on the table momentarily.
Our food arrived promptly. Firstly, the Chica Bao-Wows, which were my absolute favourite at the launch party. But this version had Karaage Chicken. The ultimate taste sensation, with a sticky sauce and a creamy one, slaw and the tender stand out chicken. And, the soft Bao buns, yum. So good.
Of course, a visit to Lucky Chans wouldn’t be complete without a bowl of ramen. Xena’s Karaage Chicken Ramen was consumed rather rapidly, so I expect she enjoyed it a lot. Really like the Naruto alot and because Xena doesn’t like them I scored both. They’re the pink and white swirly things. Fish cakes I think they are.
Couldn’t help but think that my Vegetarian Ramen had been inspired by Brittany Murphy’s Ramen Girl film. She makes an almost identical one in the film, and everyone laughs at her. They laugh because it has corn and tomato in it, which is a no-no in Ramen culture apparently. Would have to disagree, it was great soup.
So, on the 2nd level of Lucky Chan’s there is a rather large machine. It’s a Ramen machine which they imported directly from China. Now you know why their Ramen is so good it’s because the noodles are made in house.
Pleased that our experience was excellent this time.
