Kailis Fremantle Raw Bar


Kailis Fremantle Raw Bar


Just a few minutes’ walk from Be. Fremantle you will find the iconic Kailis Fremantle Raw Bar.  Brimming with fresh local fish from the markets, the Kailis Raw Bar will get your inner MasterChef working on overdrive.  An amazing selection of fresh fish is on offer here plus some other added morsels perfect for that antipasto board… marinated octopus or scallops, or perhaps some fresh sashimi could be on your menu!  The newly renovated Raw Bar is dangerously close to Be. Fremantle so beware you will want to go back for seconds!



Fremantle Markets


Fremantle Markets


Friday through to Sunday these markets are a hive of activity.  Fresh fruit and vegetables are plentiful, the choices are endless, so don’t forget to take a big bag.  Not only will you find fresh fruit and vegetables, there were some salamis and chorizo that looked so tempting we just had to buy to add to our antipasto platter.  Dessert could also easily be sourced here … cupcakes galore, many things chocolate and even a raw food shop that serves a mean raw desert if this is what your taste buds crave.



Kakulus Sisters


Kakulas Sister


This is a place that any food lover would get excited about.  From the moment you step inside its doors the atmosphere is unique.  Aisles of international foods, fresh breads, cheeses, legumes, fresh nuts… the list is endless and delicious!  Stocking an array of food you will never know you needed until you are there…. But on this occasion, we stocked up on some delectable cheeses and crackers for that Antipasto board…. Highly recommended!


Bread In Common


Bread in Common


If you hadn’t walked out of Kakulas Sister with bread, then wander past this little treasure and be spoilt for choice.  A personal favourite is the Common Loaf, great for a cheese or antipasto board and quite clearly the authors theme here!


Whether meandering the streets on foot or perhaps taking advantage of a Be. Bike with a suitably large front basket for some shopping, you will fast become a Freo Foodie, whether you are staying for a few days or weeks!
