Last weekend saw the much-anticipated unveiling of FOMO Freo’s Street Eats Alley, part of the huge Kings Square redevelopment that’s been undertaken over the past few years. The story of Fremantle, FOMO blends art, architecture, culture, retail and more, and is already becoming an exciting destination for foodies with an array of new restaurants already open, with more on the way.
Get the lowdown on who’s serving up what below:
Perth’s burger titans have expanded their empire further with a new flagship store in Freo, bringing American-style burgs, fries and shakes along with an excellent range of tap beers and cocktails. Sports fans will find plenty to love as well, with big games on the big screens, pool tables and more!
Opening hours: Monday-Sunday 11am-10pm (later Friday & Saturday)
There’s barely a time you can visit Get Chunky’s OG Mt Lawley location and you won’t have to get in line with a bunch of other cookie enthusiasts, and we imagine Freo will be no different. The New York-style cookie joint is the guiltiest of all pleasures, and one you’ll be returning to time and time again.
Opening hours: Monday-Sunday 10am-9.30pm
To say we’re excited about the return of Freo favourites Smash Grill would be putting it lightly, their Chicago-inspired smashed burgers and fried chicken sandos finally back in our lives to provide endless joy…and expanded waistlines.

Korean BBQ restaurant Little Seoul is another popular Perth spot heading south for the summer (and beyond), rocking a feast of soul food favourites like fried chicken doused in their secret recipe marinade, bibimbap, spicy kimchi pancakes, exotic cocktails and more!
Opening Hours: Monday-Thursday 11.30am-2pm & 4.30pm-8pm / Friday-Sunday 11.30am-10pm

Opening Hours: Monday-Sunday 10.30am-7pm (11am Saturday & Sunday)
You can’t go past a good curry, and Mumbai Rocks will be bringing the heat not only with traditional tandoori bread and kebabs, but they’ve also got some brand new butter chicken pies served up daily!

All this fine dining needs you looking fine first, and Uncle Joe’s are some of the most trusted providers of fades, trims and banter in the State. Complimentary refreshments included of course.
Opening Hours: Monday-Friday 10am-6pm / Saturday 9am-5pm
All of this good eatin’ may require a little lean back in the other direction, and if so you can treat your mind, body and soul at Nourish Health Pharmacy – a holistic hub of conventional and natural therapies, with a couple of sneaky snacks and drinks too.
Opening Hours: Monday-Friday 7.30am-5pm / Saturday 9.30am-3.30pm
After frying brains in Leederville as Australia’s first ever dedicated fried ice cream shop, Fry’d open up shop number two in FOMO Freo very soon. Serving up their signature scoops in a dazzling array of dreamy flavours and toppings, we can’t wait to pop in.
One of two new Japanese restaurants coming to FOMO Freo, Eda Izakaya’s traditional Japanese Otsumami (tapas) and Yakitori (skewers) are must-tries for fans of the land of the big red sun.
The Tokaido Sushi train is the final piece (for now) of the FOMO Freo foodie puzzle, featuring a mouthwatering selection of fresh sushi, bento and more.
If Nourish ain’t quite cutting it and you need to work off one too many big boy burgers at Smash or Varsity, you can work out smart with Speedfit’s advanced EMS (electro muscular stimulation) technology. Low impact, high intensity training sessions for 20 minutes a week?! Sounds like the dream to us.
Funlab: Strike, Holey Moley & B. Lucky & Sons
Already a big hit at Westfield Carousel and now Karrinyup Shopping Centre, Funlab will be bringing big fun to FOMO Freo with Strike Ten Pin Bowling, Holey Moley Mini Golf and the B. Lucky & Sons Cocktail Arcade!
Popular T4 offers a tantalising taste of traditional Taiwanese food and beverages with the aim of bringing joy and happiness to the world through soulful cuppas. It’s no surprise they’re the world’s favourite bubble tea.
