Super-trendy music venue, The Brightside, has recently upped its culinary game, with Lucky Egg food truck opening in it’s vibing front yard. The brainchild of Jacob Knauth, who originally began The Brightside Kitchen, now tends to the peckish needs of late night Valley frequenters and offers post-bender fare at it’s finest.
Pumping out deluxe fried chicken dishes from a humble shipping container-style kitchen, Lucky Egg sources its produce from a free-range chicken farm in Ipswich, minimising the impending food guilt of a midnight feast. Open Wednesday through Saturday until late, you can stop by at 1am and hoe into deep fried delights like Dorito Popcorn Chicken, a Karaage Cup or Mozzarella Sticks all for under $7.
On Wednesday’s grab wings for 50 cents a pop, Hot Malasada Donuts on Thursday’s, and on Friday get all your mates along for the Bird and Bucket Deal. If, like the rest of Bris-Vegas, you’re still all about burgers, Lucky Egg’s got you covered; the Original Crispy is our personal fave—fried chicken between a bun with Hellman's slaw and a honey mustard sauce—, but they also cater for the odd hungry vego that wanders in, with their Tempura Fried Eggplant burger with lashings of Kewpie mayo.
The plethora of sauce options make for lip-licking double-dipping whether you choose a drumstick, a wing or the whole bird. While it’s perfect for a late night pit stop, Lucky Egg is also open for lunch in the latter half of the week and all meals can be grabbed on the go.
So next time you’re sleuthing around the Valley, bypass the drive-thru and see how clucking delicious Lucky Egg is for yourself.
