Great thunder and lighting and quite a bit of rain in Fremantle last night, but a perfect Monday to visit the Food Trucks Under the Bridge at the East Street jetty from 5pm today.

FOOD TRUCKS UNDER FREO BRIDGE

Posted in city of fremantle, food, Uncategorized by freoview on October 23, 2017

 

Under the Bridge Food. 16 Oct

 

Let’s hope the weather will be more accommodating for the first of the summer season UNDER THE BRIDGE FOODTRUCKS at the Fremantle East Street Jetty today.

They had to cancel last week because of the storm, so check it out from 5pm today.

It’s a nice location to watch the sun set behind the port and five food trucks will offer a variety of food.

HOT WEEKEND AT FREO’S CLANCY’S

 

Clancys chili and bbq. Sept 24

 

There is always something new to keep the Fremantle community delighted, and this event is a very HOT one!

Clancy’s is organising the inaugural Smokin’ BBQ and Chilli Festival in Princess May Park this coming Saturday September 23 from 10am-11pm, and on Sunday the 24th from 11am-4 pm.

What better way to start the school holidays for the challenged parents than to partake in the chilli eating competition, and for all the family to learn how to have the best BBQ at home.

There will be food and other stalls, and knowing the Clancy’s mob there will no doubt be some live music and entertainment as well.

It’s a FREE event!

GROWING FISHING BOAT HARBOUR

Posted in city of fremantle, fishing boat harbour, Uncategorized by freoview on August 23, 2017

 

ccb 1

 

Good to see the extension to the Char Char Bull restaurant in Fremantle’s Fishing Boat Harbour is nearing completion.

The new Piazza has been ready for over two months but the work at CCB means the public car park is still not open to the public.

It is a little disappointing that the new building did not copy the saw-tooth roof of Cicerello’s next door, as it looks like a cheap add-on unfortunately.

But with some interesting furniture and good interior design they might still pull it off. I hope so!

With the new Han’s opening last week there is only one more spot to be filled; the forlorn looking former Mussel Bar.

BEAUTIFUL BLACKWALL REACH

Posted in food, fremantle, health, Uncategorized by freoview on July 30, 2017

 

 

A beautiful friend of mine whom I like very much told me on Facebook yesterday that since she saw me last, about five months ago, I have become and ugly fat blob of a man. (Only joking! She said I looked good. ; >)

Being human I immediately reacted and blamed my poor health at the start of the year for my weight gain, because walking was not a great experience with a catheter inserted. I totally forgot to mention my liking for sweets, ice cream, pork belly, chips with mayo, pies, pizza, etc.

Anyway, my Pigmy penis was successfully amputated in a ten-second operation in May, so with the sky blue and the sun shining I no longer had an excuse this morning to stay on the couch and read books.

Off I went to Blackwall Reach, that really should be part of Freo. The Fremantle Tram used to run through there to Point Walter, so historically we have a claim.

If only the former State Government had not messed up the local government reform so badly, that beautiful part of the world would have been ours.

Talked to a lovely couple from Victoria who arrived yesterday and who are regrowing a rain forrest there near Mildura. She was picking up rubbish that people had left behind on the rocks.

Here some photos of my epic walk to show my now former friend whom I liked very much that I am trying to lose weight. ; >)

Federal Hotel Sunday music

 

What a brilliant Sunday again in Freo paradise!

Don’t stay home but get out and about to the Growers Green Farmers Market that is still on till midday and there is also a car boot sale on there today.

Fresh produce, breads, pastries, yummy breakfasts, great atmosphere, live music, animal touch farm, face painting. Bring the family, friends, dogs!

When there help reduce the us of plastic bags and take part in making Boomerang Bags.

From 3pm on the Federal Hotel in William Street opposite the Townhall will have free live music, so for those who miss the Irish music they used to play there when it was Rosy O’Grady, this might be a good afternoon.

And all the shops, pubs, bars and cafes are open in Fremantle, so support our small businesses and the bigger ones, all of them!

ALL GOOD FOR HAN’S CAFE FISHING BOAT HARBOUR

Posted in city of fremantle, fishing boat harbour, food, Uncategorized by freoview on June 7, 2017

I got told off by Fremantle Fishing Boat Harbour guru Henry Liascos for publishing last week’s blog that the Han’s Cafe in Freo might not go ahead because the management company is in receivership.

Henry told me that Han’s will open in a couple of months and that the owner of the Fishing Boat Harbour one already operates two other Han’s franchises, so it’s all good for Freo!

I am happy to be told off when I can publish positive news for Fremantle. ; >)

ASIAN FREO FISHING BOAT HARBOUR

Posted in city of fremantle, food, hospitality, Uncategorized by freoview on May 17, 2017

The Fremantle Fishing Boat Harbour will get more diversity with Asian restaurant Han’s opening ist 13th franchise outlet there.

Han’s signed a ten-year lease for the 240sqm space that once occupied the Mussel Bar.

Let’s hope number 13 is a lucky number for them and for Fremantle.

FREMANTLE SUSTAINABLE SEAFOOD DAY

Posted in fishing, fremantle, western australia by freoview on March 30, 2017

The fishing industries and Department of Fisheries are holding the W.A. Sustainable Seafood Day at the Fremantle Fishing Boat Harbour tomorrow, Friday March 31.

This is an industry day but the public is welcome, so if you like seafood and are around tomorrow go and check it out.

Could we please also have an affordable seafood day where the fishing industries try to find solutions to make seafood cheaper and more affordable. The 50+ dollar per kilo for fish is not affordable for low-income earners.
