FREMANTLE WELCOMES SOMA KITCHEN

Posted in bar, cafe, city of fremantle, food, hospitality, Uncategorized by freoview on May 23, 2019

 

 

Fremantle has a lovely new restaurant, bar, cafe and bakery in Little Market Street behind Gino’s and the Dome. SOMA Kitchen has opened its doors and it looks very welcoming and cosy.

International beers and a great wine list enhance the Southern European food on offer, that is merged with North African and Middle Eastern influences.

It is nice and relaxing to sit in the alfresco area without buses and cars in your face, so wander over soon and give it a try. I will for sure!

It is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

ANOTHER ONE BITES THE FREO DUST

Han's

 

It appears that the Han’s restaurant in the Fremantle Fishing Boat Harbour will be closing soon with new For Lease signs put up at the building.

I hardly ever saw people in the restaurant while Cicerello’s, Kailis and the Bathers Beach House were packed full.

The premises of the former Mussel Bar in the FBH are still vacant as well, so hopefully those spaces can be filled with new operators soon.

HUNGRY JACK’S FREMANTLE CLOSES

Another one bites the dust! HUNGRY JACK’S in Fremantle permanently closed its doors and they were very fast with the removal of the signs at 6.30am this morning.

Fast food outlets make most of their money with the drive-throughs, and that was also the reason McDonalds left the Fishing Boat Harbour many years ago.

VERY FREO STORE HOUSE GROCERIES

The new The Store House groceries shop in South Fremantle is arguable the most VERY FREO new shop in our city.

The shop is next to the Post Office and opposite ALDI at the South Fremantle shopping centre on the corner of Douro and Hampton roads, so make sure to check it out!

This is a bright and clean modern old-fashion grocery shop, as I know it from my youth, where most things are available in bulk and you just put a scoop of what you want in a paper bag or self-brought container.

Owners Audrey Ting and Josie Black are there to offer a personal service with a smile and the variety of goods they offer is huge; laundry, household, personal, sauces, oil, seeds, beans, vinegar, oats, wheats, flour, spices, rice, pasta, nuts, raw honey, etc.etc.

There is even a peanut butter machine that presses peanuts into butter and into a jar. The kids will love watching that one!

INNOVATIVE COOKING AT FREO’S VIN&OLI

Posted in city of fremantle, food, hospitality, Uncategorized by freoview on November 20, 2018

 

vegetarian haggis?

 

Fusion cooking has been popular for quite some time, but Freo’s Cappuccino Strip bar Vin&Oli have elevated it to a whole new level by introducing vegetarian Haggis. I assume that is what Veggis is.

Ot could it be that the chef is better at cooking than at spelling? ; >)

Support our local traders and go find out for yourself!

If you like strawberries there is only one place to be this afternoon and that is Fremantle!

The STRAWBERRY SUNDAY FESTIVAL is on from 12 midday to 3pm all along the Cappuccino Strip, so get the kids ready, polish the Zimmerframe, and come into the port city to show support for our local strawberry growers, who are doing it tough after the needle scare.

HERITAGE LISTING FOR OUR FAVOURITE FOOD

Posted in city of fremantle, food, heritage, Uncategorized by freoview on January 15, 2018

 

French President Emmanuel Macron has suggested that the famous French breadstick Baguette should be heritage listed, so I was wondering what great food items we in Australia could put on the world heritage list.

No doubt that the good old meat pie and sausage roll are favourites, and probably the chiko roll is still up there for some, although I have never eaten one.

Anzac biscuits are a safe bet for heritage listing, and in our seaside town of Fremantle fish&chips is a must. Or if we want to stick with bread like the French president, why not Bread Pettitt?

As a multicultural society we probably also claim pizza and sushi as Australian food.

Any other suggestions? ; >)

FREO SHOWS WHAT CHRISTMAS IS ABOUT

Posted in bid, christmas, city of fremantle, Uncategorized by freoview on November 30, 2017

 

 

Not many people who enjoyed themselves tonight at the Fremantle Long Table Dinner in historic High Street would understand the logistics of making the stunning event work.

To feed 800 people is a huge challenge at any given time, but doing it on the street, from different kitchens and with many volunteers, now that is amazing!

Karl Bullers of the National Hotel, the BID team, all the volunteers, and God knows who else was involved in organising this outstanding evening, all should receive the Fremantle Citizen of the Year award. You guys are truly amazing and deserve so much gratitude from the community!!

To do all this to support St Pats and the homeless and needy people is what Christmas should be all about and you all made it a reality. Thank you so much!!

Freo leading the way yet again!
