Lucky Taco duo launch new street-eats meal-kit delivery service
Prefer dumplings, burgers and tacos over meat and three veg? Well you’re in luck!
Taco aficionados Sarah and Otis Frizzell from The Lucky Taco are launching a new weekly meal-kit delivery service that’s set to make life that much better for street food fans.
A fun and tasty alternative to your current weekly meal delivery, Lucky Street offers an evolving line-up of the nation’s best street eats for you to recreate at home in just a few easy steps.
Launching this week, Lucky Street kicks off with cult Korean burger bar Tiger Burger, Japanese-Brazilian-Korean fusion duo the Temaki Truck, pop-up Miss Changy, Thai eatery Farang and K Rd curry house Satya, with other exciting names to be announced soon.
And with Marc Ellis and Stefan Lepionka (ex Charlie’s Juice) on board as business partners, Lucky Street is no flash in the pan.
With two “fun, tasty and easy-to-assemble” meal-kits delivered to your doorstep each week, each includes award-winning Lucky Tacos and another dish that will change weekly.
The week one line-up features mouth-watering Chipotle Chicken Lucky Tacos with marinated free-range chicken, soft tortillas, avocado crema, pink pickle, shredded red cabbage and fresh salsa, coriander and lime, and Tiger Burger’s famous Smokey Lee Burger with free-range patties, smoky bacon rashers, aged cheddar, crispy shallots and homemade Korean BBQ sauce and aioli, with a bibimbap salad and dressing to boot.
Week two and you’ll get Sizzlin’ Steak Lucky Tacos and Farang’s Thai Green Fish Curry with pawpaw slaw. And week three: Prawn Picante Lucky Tacos and Miss Changy’s Pork and Fennel Pot Sticker Dumplings with an Asian cucumber salad and Miss Changy’s famous dipping sauce.
Sarah says she and Otis love to cook – and eat. “But we know that not everyone has time to make everything from scratch or wants to eat meat and three veg every night.”
“With Lucky Street, we’re offering something more adventurous and exciting. It’s about saying adios to mundane meals and hola to exotic flavours from around the world.
“We find the very best street eats New Zealand has to offer – the best curries, the best noodles, the best dumplings, the best hand rolled sushi.
“Everything comes ready to assemble with all the difficult and boring bits already done so you can throw it all together in just a few easy steps.
“And with just two meals a week you’ve got flexibility rather than being committed to a full week’s worth of meals.”
With no complicated recipe cards, easy to follow instructional videos are instead provided via Lucky Street’s YouTube channel and social media.
Launching in Auckland for now, the duo say expansion into Hamilton, Tauranga and Wellington is on the cards if the service takes off, as is more flexibility for those with dietary requirements.
“We’ll listen to our customers and if enough people want vege or gluten free options, we’ll do it.
“There are people doing amazing things with street food out there, but these guys are all small like us and it’s not easy, so it’s awesome being able to support our friends. If it takes off, everyone’s winning!”
Says Marc: “Lucky Taco are ‘the’ street food authority and Sarah and Otis have pulled together a legit collaboration of the best suppliers to cater for your street food fix.
“It is healthy, great tasting, social fun food, ready lickety split at the right price. Because let’s face it we don’t dine with the queen too often!”
