Birmingham: Fumo and The Cube

Following our Friday night of food, we decided to spend Saturday, well, eating. So, we headed off to Fumo, an Italian tapas style restaurant, to tuck into some more delicious lunchtime goodies.







We may have gone slightly to town on the ordering- our table was practically heaving under the weight of all the different dishes!







However, the one (slightly odd) dish which stood out for me was the fried courgette sticks- I just couldn't get enough of them! I also loved the beef carpaccio and the garlic-y king scallops, both of which had me scraping the plates clean...




For pudding, we dug into a sharing plate. Here, we were presented with a whole variety of delicate little puddings, all of which were begging to be eaten. Look at them!





I especially loved the passionfruit meringue pie- the base was wonderfully tangy while the sweet meringue peaks simply melted in my mouth.

The sharing aspect of this restaurant has to be what makes it so fun. Personally, I love picking a dish or two off the menu each and then swapping bites, trying to figure out who ordered the best. I have to say, this time each dish was so good it was honestly hard to pick between them!




After we'd eaten every last crumb, we whizzed our way up to the top of The Cube for an after lunch coffee. The coffee was fairly standard, but the views over Birmingham were simply stunning. Luckily it was a really clear day and so we could see for miles!






Eventually, three little piggies waddled their way home, feeling rather content and more than a little full...!

    1. Thank you! I actually use dream matte mousse and then set it with a little talcum powder- I've found it gives a better finish than some of the more expensive brands I've tried!

  6. This restaurant looks ideal for me - that sharing aspect sounds perfect as I can never choose what I want on the menu! Think I need to find a good tapas place in Belfast. x
