New Fullarton restaurant gets the green light

One of the most appreciated facilities at Living Choice Fullarton retirement village is the restaurant and cafe, “Damien on Fisher” incorporating Hudsons Coffee, which has been receiving high praise from the residents since it opened at 123 Fisher Street in late December last year.

This week, the champagne corks were popping as popular restaurant proprietor Damien Hein, his staff members and residents celebrated the news that the licensed restaurant had finally been given the green light to open to the public.

“I love the residents here – everyone is so friendly and welcoming. They feel like family already. Being able to open to the public means I can offer an even better menu and service because we can now welcome more people to our restaurant and café,” said Damien.

“My time here so far has been amazing. What a great opportunity to work side by side with Living Choice – I’m having the time of my life,” he added.

Damien has always been passionate about food, having started his chef apprenticeship at the young age of 14. He completed his apprenticeship four years later, became a head chef at 21 and owned a restaurant at age 24.

Like most chefs, his favourite “go-to” food at home is vegemite and cheese on toast, however his menu at Fullarton is a lot more sophisticated, offering a wide range of freshly prepared food for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

“I source my produce from trusted restaurant and café association approved suppliers and look for freshness, seasonality and it must be local.”

His food is reasonably priced too – click here for the latest menu.
