Who is misschu


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, Nahji opened the first misschu in Darlinghurst NSW, serving customers take away food through a bamboo framed ‘tuckshop’ window. The business took off and quickly developed a cult status and a daily queue up the street.

In 2010, Nahji formed a partnership with Gabi Machado to open the second misschu in Melbourne. 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.

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! misschu is big on fun, freshness, flavour, design and customer experience.

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, misschu is ready to please for any occasion!
