Zohar Flantz always made it fun to come and order a pizza when he owned the Luscious Foods restaurant in the Byron Arts & Industry Estate. Not only was he a welcoming presence, there was also the excitement of seeing the wood-fired oven, and seeing the choices available – not to mention the great-tasting pizzas he created.

Now he’s sold the restaurant, but kept the brand, the catering, and the mobile pizza pop-ups in Ocean Shores, and Mullumbimby. I’ve been to the Mullumbimby Leagues club ground on a Saturday, and it’s a relaxed outdoor environment – like a picnic but with better food, and a bar! 

This is a great location to come and chill out with family and friends, with the spectacular view across to Mt Chincogan, and plenty of safe space for the kids to run around. It’s also a great place for gatherings, or birthdays – all you need to do is let Zohar know how big your group is, and they will have Luscious Pizzas for you all, and drinks are available from the bar.

‘I’ve kept the fun bits’, says Zohar, ‘without so much of the business-oriented stuff that goes with running a business. I have my kids and my wife, and I’m very lucky – you tend to forget that when you’re caught up with trying to survive. For me this change is about living.

‘We would like to take this opportunity to give thanks, and appreciation to all our customers who kept coming to our luscious establishment to enjoy our unique flavours of the Middle East. Thank you for all the warm feedback and wishes’.

The fun, flavours and service are still available, as Zohar and the team have a catering service that is available for private parties, weddings and corporate events. Just check out lusciousfoods.com.au or phone 0423 371 660.

Zohar’s ‘Luscious’ Wood Fired Pizzas are available on a regular basis at two locations in the Byron Shire:

*Ocean Shores Community Centre, Tuesdays, and Fridays 5–8.30pm. Take away/Drive through. Call & order on 0487 673 516, and we will have it ready for you to pickup.

*Mullumbimby Leagues Club, every Saturday 5–8pm. (This is an outdoor venue, so if it’s too wet, it will be closed.)
