Arimia Estate, Wilyabrup

MARGARET RIVER | I enjoyed an absolutely brilliant lunch at Arimia Estate a few weeks back, finally making it over to check out what chef Evan Hayter and the team are doing after a few border closure aborted attempts.

Located on a parcel of land in Wilyabrup in the greater Margaret River region, between the ocean and the bush, Arimia is a winery, restaurant, and an on-site organic farm, where almost all of what is used in the kitchen is sourced from. If it’s not from the farm, it’s from nearby producers who share the same philosophy as Arimia.

Evan’s food is ultra-seasonal modern Australian cuisine with Japanese influences. The kitchen is 100% off the grid the restaurant is almost zero waste.

As you’d expect, the menu changes daily as it’s very much dependant on what’s going on with the farm on any given day. So, whatever you eat will likely differ somewhat from what I had, but I can assure it’ll all be excellent. Even my traditional (when it comes to food) steak and a side when eating out dad couldn’t stop talking about how good it all was. And that was before we even got to the meat.

With Western Australia’s borders open quarantine free to all other Australian states once again, a trip to Margaret River is now a potential option for all. And if you do make it there, a meal at Arimia is an absolute must.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
