Welcome To Lulu's Midnight Special
October 4 - 15
Lulu's is taking over The Midnight Special's kitchen for a strictly limited time, dishing up flavour-packed 'food with a conscience'. Owner/chef Monica Luppi will be offering California style tamales, steamed parcels of corn masa dough filled with meat or vegetables served with fresh salsas, plus a rotating list of sandwich and snack specials.
Combining flavours and memories from Monica's epic US road trips, summers at her Nonna’s house in Italy, and a childhood spent eating her way around the San Francisco Bay Area, Lulu's is committed to local and independent producers and retailers. Fresh, ethically sourced ingredients are used whenever possible, and a percentage of profits from this month's popup will be donated to Oz Harvest.

Born in Italy and raised in the US, Lulu's Owner and Chef Monica Luppi admits, “I was totally the kid with the weird smelly cheeses in her lunch box while everyone else ate PB&J. When I went to stay with my Nonna each summer, I’d pine for bagels and Mission Burritos. In the fall, back in the US, I’d dream about the perfect mortadella sandwich”.
Lulu’s pops up at breweries and bars around Sydney’s Inner West, offering flavour-packed 'food with a conscience': local and independent producers and retailers are favoured; fresh, ethically sourced ingredients are used; and a percentage of profits from each Lulu's popup goes towards helping people in need. For The Midnight Special popup, Oz Harvest is their charity of choice.
