Brought to us by restauranteur Guy Grossi, Garum is a large scale, rustic Roman restaurant at Hibernian Place championing the quality local produce that enticed Grossi over to WA in the first place.
The menu is inspired by Roman food and dining culture and it's brought a much-needed contemporary feel to the original heritage building that it's located in.
Garum takes all of the deliciously fresh produce we mentioned earlier and giving it his signature Italian flair. Think Freo octopus, Arkady lamb from Margaret River, Manjimup truffles and the most delicious pastas.
If you can't manage to get a booking at Garum (you're not alone) or you just don't feel like eating out, you might want to give one of Garum's seriously epic hampers a go. Designed to be shared between two, the hampers could easily feed four, but we're not complaining.
Dishes changes based on what's fresh, but expect Fremantle octopus, supplì (rice balls), sourdough, olives, salumi, cheeses, dips, jams, nuts, crackers and more. Once you're done with the savoury stuff, dig into the tiramisu and watch all your worries melt away. The hampers will only set you back $79, so you should feel free to go ahead and add a bottle of Garum's signature red or white wine, a collab with the esteemed Voyager Estate.
Order them here for collection on or after Friday 31 July; just remember they are only available from Friday to Sunday and they require 48 hours notice so order early.
