Ootong and Lincoln, South Fremantle


Ootong and Lincoln is located in the niche area of South Fremantle which we were keen to explore due to all the social media buzz. They describe themselves as a quirky rustic eatery and they specialise in home cooked breakfast and lunch.

Lychee Slushy ($8.50) & Green Smoothie ($9.50)

The lychee slushy was a lovely addition to our meal, as it was super light and refreshing. It contained an interesting combination of lychee, watermelon and a hint of mint. However we feel that $8.50 is a little pricey for what it is. 

The green smoothie on the other hand, was divine. It was packed full of healthy ingredients which included spinach, banana, kiwi, apple, lemon and chia seeds. We loved that the fruity flavour really came through even though it contained spinach and overall the drink wasn't too filling. 

Prawn Zucchini and Rocket Fettuccine ($20)

Warning if you are on a not order this! The overall dish was pleasant but it was overpowered with garlic. However, we loved the fresh crunchy texture of the zucchini and the generous serving of the good quality fresh Australian prawns. We rate this dish 7/10.

Tempura Soft Shell Crab ($23)

Firstly, we loved the marinated flavour of the tempura, it was sweet and tangy which suited the Asian vibe of the dish nicely. However, the tempura was too soggy for our liking and the crab inside had a strange mushy texture that we haven't come across before. We also feel that the sweet potato chips that accompanied the crab didn't add anything special to the dish, we would much prefer a fresh sweet potato salad perhaps. We rate this dish 5/10.

Overall Review

Ootong and Lincoln have a great atmosphere with their quirky decor and the staff are friendly and efficient. We think that their concept is great but execution of the meals could be improved upon. In addition, it was a little pricey for what we received but thats what you expect in the location. Overall we believe that they deserve a 6.5/10.
