Taking up space next to The Mantle, The Sunshine Harvester Works is providing the perfect launch pad for Perth’s newest food and retail start-ups.
Encompassing a kitchen, events space and pop up stalls—all available for short-term rent—Sunshine Harvester Works is helping to turn dreams into realities.
One of those dreams is Ex-Masterchef contestant Brendon Pang’s Chinese-style dumpling eatery, Bumplings. Opening with a soft launch over Fridays in July, Pang is whipping up his delicious dumplings and crispy seasoned wonton skins from their uber-cool airstream kitchen.
Another Perth entrepreneur rotating through the warehouse is Leigh Nash from Dingo Sauce Co. His locally-made hot sauces are packing a serious kick and we’re told to expect a bunch of Dingo dinners in the coming months.
And then there’s Ray’s Satay, a modern Singaporean BBQ joint that’s been whipping up a fish head curry from the rentable airstream kitchen. Their first event sold out so we can only expect they’ll be popping up again soon.
If starting your own restaurant or cafe has always been a pipe dream, the Sunshine Harvester Works is the perfect incubator to turn it into a reality.
With plants hanging from the ceiling, as well as pendant lights and exposed beams, the space retains the cool industrial vibe of the building, and we can’t wait to see what else it has in store. Keep an eye out for what’s coming up here.
