While many traders in Fremantle are struggling it was nice to see a lunch time queue outside the little HARU Sushi bar in William Street today, on a Monday.

FREOLOADERS PARADISE

Posted in city of fremantle, food, hospitality, local government, marketing, PR,, Uncategorized by freoview on August 1, 2019

 

The City of Fremantle is offering the chance to win a gourmet night out in Freo as part of the City’s latest destination marketing campaign.

The FREOFOODIE competition can be entered by simply spending $20 or more at any participating Freo café, bar, restaurant or pub, during the month of August for a chance to win a $500 voucher to spend on a #freofoodie feast.

Look out for the #freofoodie map in participating venues and ask for your unique codeword to enter online on the Freofoodie page of the visitfremantle.com website.

Two lucky winners will be drawn every Monday from 5 August to 2 September, with a total $5000 worth of prizes to be won.

Fremantle Mayor Brad Pettitt said with its outstanding selection of restaurants, bars, pubs and cafes, there was no better place for a winter foodie feast than Fremantle.

“Fremantle is already Perth’s favourite entertainment precinct and there are exciting new hospitality venues opening up all the time,” Mayor Pettitt said.

Whether it’s brunch and a coffee at a cosy café, a steaming bowl of ramen from a street side food hall or Nonna’s pasta special and a glass of red wine on the Cappuccino Strip, Freo does have something for everyone.

To accompany the #freofoodie competition the City of Fremantle has also produced a series of videos featuring chefs from some of Freo’s top restaurants including Bread in Common, Manuka Woodfire Kitchen, Propeller and Madalena’s bar – which has just been nominated for Gourmet Traveller’s ‘best new restaurant of the year’ award.

The #freofoodie promotion is the latest campaign to be rolled out by the City of Fremantle as part of our Destination Marketing Strategic Plan and the ‘This is Fremantle’ brand. It aims to generate visitation to Fremantle during one of the quietest off-peak months of the year.

This latest campaign will utilise digital and radio platforms to raise awareness of Fremantle as a winter dining destination and guide visitors to the visitfremantle.com website and social media channels.

SAD TO HEAR THAT FREMANTLE SWEETLIPS CLOSES

Posted in city of fremantle, fishing boat harbour, food, Uncategorized by freoview on July 20, 2019

 

 

I am very sad to hear that SWEETLIPS in the Fremantle Fishing Boat Harbour has closed forever. It is the fish&chips outlet that was my Freo favourite and where I sent visitors to Freo to.

I have no idea why they closed as the Leederville outlet has also closed so something must have gone terribly wrong.

This is their Facebook message:

END OF AN ERA:
To all our Sweetlips friends, it’s with a heavy heart we let you know that our much loved Fremantle and Leederville stores will permanently close. Fremantle is officially closed from today and Leederville will close after trading on Sunday night. So many of you have supported Freo and Leederville for years and it’s been our privilege to serve you.
🐟💋
*All vouchers can currently be redeemed at Sweetlips Melville or Scarborough or a voucher/credit can be obtained by the issuer as they have been notified. X

LIONS AND TIGERS FOOD FOR FREMANTLE

Posted in city of fremantle, food, hospitality, Uncategorized by freoview on July 13, 2019

 

 

Good news for the former Stable Hands restaurant in Fremantle’s Bannister Street, which unfortunately closed after a wall collapsed at the heritage building next door.

A new restaurant will open there in August owned by the owners of the very popular Duck Duck Bruce cafe in Collie Street.

The Lions and Tigers restaurant will seat about 80 guests and will offer Anglo Indian food created by top chef Alia Glorie, and a tandoori oven has been installed.

FREMANTLE FOOD STORIES

Posted in city of fremantle, fishing boat harbour, food, hospitality, Uncategorized by freoview on July 12, 2019

 

 

Two Freo food snippets. My favourite fish&chips shop SWEETLIPS in the Fishing Boat Harbour is closed due to unforeseen circumstances and that is not good for them during the busy school holidays.

And up the hill Hilton Pizza clearly got issues with spelling Italian, so one has to wonder which sort of cheese they are really using, because it is not Mozzarella. 😍

NEW YORK DELI FOR FREO’S KAILIS

Posted in city of fremantle, fishing boat harbour, food, hospitality, Uncategorized by freoview on July 4, 2019

 

kailis. tiff

 

Kailis in the Fremantle Fishing Boat Harbour will be reinventing itself with an all new fish cafe that will focus on the cheaper species of fish such as garfish, mullet and herring.

The new cafe will be a New York style 80s deli with a grill and barbeque section and a raw bar for those of us who love raw fish.

Kailis will also bring back two of my favourites; whitebait and fishwings.

Renowned seafood chef Peter Manifis will be running the show as the company is moving with the changing times in hospitality where people want something special when they go out and eat something they don’t cook at home.

PRINCI BUTCHERS MOVE TO EAST FREMANTLE

Posted in beaconsfield, city of fremantle, food, shopping, Uncategorized by freoview on June 22, 2019

 

 

More bad news for the Lefroy Road shopping centre in Beaconsfield with Princi Butchers reported to be moving to East Fremantle soon.

After the closure of Romanos and IGA it was just a matter of time until one of Freo’s famous butchers would also make a move to a place where there are more customers and foot traffic.

The winter location for the Food Trucks Under The Bridge is at B Shed on Victoria Quay and it is on tonight and every Monday from 5-8pm.

It is a lovely spot to watch the sun set and see ships arriving and departing from Fremantle Port, so take the family or just yourself and enjoy a good meal from some of our best food trucks.

SEE YOU AT THE GROWERS GREEN MARKET

 

dsc_0001

 

It looks like it is going to be a pretty good Sunday after all the rain we had this week, so why not head out to the Growers Green Farmers Market at Fremantle College on Lefroy Road. It is on from 8am till midday today for great fresh and organic fruit&vegetables, bread, pastries, eggs, etc.

And the perfect place for nice breakfast and great coffee or to buy some take-away for lunch.

Of course Farmer Damian’s animal touch farm is there, plus live music and face painting

There is also the Beaconsfield Precinct meet with Councillor Hannah Fitzhardinge from 10-12am.

See you there!
