If you are looking for Paella in Fremantle head to Eat Street in the Fremantle Markets! Since 2012, Eat Street has been dishing up gorgeous Spanish paella, which is cooked in an ample sized open kitchen. The three enormous paella pans on display at Eat Street are certainly impressive and catch the eye of passers by. The pans used are shallow with sloping sides to ensure the rice cooks evenly and develops an intense flavour.
Eat Street’s paella in Fremantle smells amazing and is freshly cooked on the day of trade. The key ingredients – saffron, bomba rice and paprika are imported from Europe, which adds to the authenticity.
Chicken, chorizo and corn paella – $9.50 medium serve / $12 large serve
I sampled the free-range chicken, chorizo and sweetcorn paella and it was just as I remember from my travels to Spain. The bomba rice Eat Street use is the most prestigious variety and absorbs the liquid well but stays relatively firm during cooking. The rice takes centre stage and the other ingredients don’t detract or overpower but rather complements the overall dish.
Pizzas are also on offer at Eat Street and are freshly prepared in front of you. With a thin, crispy base (my favourite kind), the toppings are generously scattered. With the cheese melted just so, the mozzarella had that delicious stretch to it with every mouthful.

Eat Street’s Spicy Sausage came recommended. Topped with calabrese sausage, fresh chilli, olives and capsicum ($10) with the chilli adding a powerful punch – it was delightful. I shared it with my husband and son who both enjoyed it immensely (although my son had to dodge the chilli). If you prefer something a little milder, they have the classic Margharita, or you can create your own from a variety of toppings.
Eat Street has bench style seating and is a fantastic place to take a break from the hustle and bustle of Fremantle whilst enjoying the sights and sounds of the Fremantle Markets. I suggest going with friends so you can choose a variety of what Eat Street has to offer, it’s the best way to try it all. Find out more at www.eatstreetperth.com.au
