JB Date Night: Fremantle Food Safari

Have you ever had that conundrum of wanting to go to multiple cafes because you can’t choose just the one? Surely I’m not the only one to face this issue all the time! But the other week it hit me, why do I have to choose only one place? There is no rule that says I can’t go to multiple cafes for the “one” meal! So that is exactly what I did. I planned a special date day for the Hubby & myself as a way to spend much needed time together. My idea was a DIY food safari, this time centered around beautiful Fremantle, with clues hinting at each stop.

We started at Bread in Common for some entrees. Of course this meant freshly baked bread (why else do you go to Bread in Common?) with a little dukkah & garlic spiced butter. We also ordered the octopus to share. Everything was delicious.

Mains were up next so we ventured to North Fremantle for a little pida at Propeller. For those that don’t know Propeller is a Mediterranean cafe situated at an old bus depot and has an awesome coastal meets industrial vibe. It’s the perfect place to have wine & pizza on a sunny day. We ordered the chicken pida which was filled with paprika spiced chicken, olives, almonds & topped with a tahini yoghurt. Between the two of us it went down way too fast!

Our last stop was for dessert (of course) which consisted of rose bud ice-creams at Marie Antoinette (located a little further north in Cottesloe). This French glacier located on Napoleon Street (now do you get the clever name?) served French treats and the smoothest ice-cream. Make sure to order your ice-cream in the form of a rose, it’s so intriguing to watch the “rose” being formed on top of the waffle cone. The coconut ice-cream is amazing and tastes exactly like fresh coconut, a flavour we will definitely order again.

Obviously you don’t have to choose the same restaurants/cafes (but I highly recommend them!) A food safari is just a great way to be immersed in foodie heaven while spending some valuable time with your number one (or your gal pals). And while Freo is a fabulous location you could easily do the same thing in various suburbs around Perth – I’m already planning another one but this time I’m thinking Northbridge.
