Rockin’ the wok and steaming the good stuff since 2009, misschu® is the original Asian street-food ‘tuckshop’. The first brand to offer health-conscious hawker food inspired by the fresh tastes of Vietnam and the fast pace of our urban lifestyles.
The business was founded by Nahji Chu, a Vietnamese-Laotian refugee, who had a vision of offering restaurant quality food in a noodle box, served fast. In 2009, the first misschu tuckshop opened in Darlinghurst, New South Wales and quickly developed a cult status and a daily queue up the street.
In 2010, Gabi Machado formed a partnership to open the second misschu tuckshop in Melbourne, Victoria. Gabi re-interpreted the original takeaway concept for the colder climate of Melbourne, introducing a dining room and bar to complement the takeaway trade through the tuckshop window. Kano Hollamby joined the team for this project and has been the driver of the interior and graphic design elements of the brand ever since.
Since the launch of the misschu brand in Melbourne, Gabi, his wife Heike and Kano have opened two further successful misschu tuckshops in Victoria. Now with full rights to the brand, the trio are set to take the business to new heights with a national roll out, honouring the legacy of its founder and with a firm commitment to the misschu DNA; big on fun, freshness, flavour, design and customer experience.
Grandma’s traditional recipes take a modern spin at misschu. The menu is unique, the food is nourishing and delicious, the atmosphere is lively, the prices are accessible and the service is fast!
As a local happy place to catch up with family and friends, a quality home delivery service for a night in, or as an office caterer with a healthy twist, the appeal of the misschu brand is broad and lasting.
misschu is now expanding and looking for passionate and driven people to join the family.
