WHERE TO FIND
As we slumber in our homes, the days blur into one, motivation in the kitchen is dwindling and everyone is dreaming of the day of social freedom, celebrating over a decadent meal and few too many drinks with friends and family. But with so many of our favourite fine dining restaurants adapting to the lockdown restrictions, offering takeaway, they are now bringing the good times to us! So, slip on a fresh pair of trackie daks and slide on those slippers as we dive into the new takeout options available at the hottest new dining venue, your house!
Together with their chef Alexandra Haynes, Lalla Rookh now offers romantic Friday night takeaway and home-delivered meal for two. Just picture Lalla’s famous potato gnocchi dressed with a pork and fennel ragu to warm the soul, paired with a fresh Caprese salad busting with buffalo mozzarella and buttery homemade garlic bread. Then to finish a serve of their indulgent traditional tiramisu. You can even have sommelier Jeremy Prus match one of Lalla’s covetable collection of over 300 boutique Australian and Italian wines with your meal to really up the ante of this at-home dining experience.
Those Middle-eastern flavours can still be smelt from the kitchen of Kurt Sampson at Propeller Garage, the converted bus garage in the heart of North Fremantle village. From Wednesday to Sunday you can collect Kurt Sampson’s renown manoushes (Lebanese flatbreads), bisteeyas (filled pies) and tagines for an exotic dinner at home, paired of course with a nice bottle of wine. Or maybe a late Sunday morning brunch is called your name, with a large hot latte, double-chocolate waffles, morning buns and bacon & egg shawarmas. All available to order online.
