Day 3 is family photoshoot day at Cottesloe Beach. I shall leave that for another post on its own. Because of Cottesloe’s proximity to Fremantle, we headed there right after the photoshoot was done to cure our growling tummies.
Between the two famous restaurants of Kailis and Cicerellos, I chose the latter randomly.
The winds today were strong and chilly so we decided to eat in comfort indoors instead. Otherwise the outdoors would be a good choice of having your meal with a view and some companions (birds were plenty!).
Kids (or adults) can watch fish swim while waiting for your food to be ready. Though I think it must have been disturbing for the fishes in the tanks to watch the customers have Fish & Chips all day long!
Deluxe Seafood Chowder
The Seafood Chowder was comforting to have in the cold especially and was pretty yummy. But both the Husb and I agree that the Clam Chowder we had at Pier 39, SF (10 years ago!) is still THE BEST.
Traditional Fish & Chips
The presentation may not look enticing but I love how fresh-sweet the fish tasted and the batter didn’t taste and smell of the oil. We had to order another of this cos the kids finished our portions too!
Local Crunchy Prawns
My absolute favourite item for our lunch! The shells were fried to perfection – crunchy (INDEED!) and didn’t feel like it was too hard to swallow.
Calamari! This was almost as good as the Crunchy Prawns that won because of their crunchiness. 😀
While waiting for us to finish up everything, the kids were doing a ‘Darla’ (Finding Nemo) along the fish tanks when a staff came to our table to ask if the two of them are our children. We went “yea—s?” and I wanted to add, ‘it depends on what you are going to tell me. Haha!’ Hey, if they were going to complain about them, then I might as well lighten up the situation!
As it turned out, he wanted to offer us fish food that we could use to feed the ones outside the restaurant! Either he liked our kids enough, or he was just trying to be nice about telling us to stop our kids from terrorizing the fish and shark in the tanks.
Anyway, the kids were excited to be able to feed the fish in the sea! Although it seemed more like they were feeding the birds most of the time.
Crossing the road from Cicerellos to where the Fremantle Tourist Wheel is, is a nice spot where we can take pictures on a track!
I wanted to do the touristy thing of taking the Tourist Wheel since it would only take about 7-8 minutes, but the kids were not interested.
Instead, they headed straight to the playground at the park!
Seriously, Perth has way too many playgrounds. :p They seem to be EVERYWHERE we go! If there were no pressing toilet needs, it would have been mission-impossible to get the kids to leave.
