Young George, East Fremantle

Young George East Fremantle

Young George is part of the trendy East Fremantle foodie scene and is a good place to spend a rainy Wednesday lunchtime.

The restaurant is in a large corner space with an L shaped seating area, which makes dining more intimate.

Service was friendly without being too attentive and the restaurant’s philosophy – seasonal and local ingredients – was well explained.

Food at Young George is based on a sharing concept although there are menu items suitable for one person. There is also a lunch menu offering three tapas type plates for $25 from 11:30-4pm Tuesday to Friday. However my friend and I decided to go for the retro half-marron Thermidor ($22.50) and the triple cooked potatoes ($9.50) after glossing over the even more trendy items such as lupin and nettle dumplings and the broccomole.

The half marron wasn’t a huge plateful and perhaps not the best value for money but it was very good accompanied by paper-thin potato straws. But the potatoes with red curry mayonnaise were excellent and extremely moreish.


Many of the menu dishes are cooked on the now ubiquitous wood-fired oven that certainly contributed to keeping the room warm. The restaurant is next door to a liquor store whose contents can be seen through one half wire wall.

Street parking is available but is not that easy with only a few ACROD spaces so I would advise going early rather than later.
