After we drove down to Freo to escape the oppressive Perth heat, we decided to have dinner at the newly opened wood fired bakery/restaurant on Pakenham street. Bread In Common is housed in a old warehouse space with high ceilings and exposed original brickwork- it has a warm, cosy ambiance which makes it a very enjoyable place to spend an evening.
Fun fact: Bread In Common have two ovens built from volcanic rock sitting side by side- a “brother/sister duo, fondly named Hansel & Gretel”.
Chilli, basil, capsicum and cherry tomato mussels
Slow cooked lamb ribs were out of this world amazing.

Woodfired bread, some sort of semi-hard cheese (I really should have written this sh*t down), and raw honeycomb
The slow cooked lamb ribs ($19) were my favourite. Melt in your mouth goodness covered with crispy skin (almost like crackling) topped with chilli, mint, and black garlic. The wood fired bread is fresh and has the perfect amount of chewiness- goes without saying that you can’t leave this place without trying it.
The generous serving of mussels with a flavoursome chilli, capsicum, tomato and basil sauce also went down a treat.
The servings are quite generous for the price- possibly the best bang for your buck in all of WA. For two hungry people, I would say that 2 large share plates, 1-2 small share plates, and 2 servings of bread will leave just enough room for dessert (apparently amazing here, but I don’t really have a sweet tooth.)
