Fumo, Birmingham

A couple of weeks ago the boy whisked me away to Birmingham. I have never been before & so he decided to treat me to a hotel, dinner & some shopping. I have only just had my camera & I am still figuring it out so alas I keep forgetting about it, so I only have a very few snap shots of the food, sadly no hotel or our shenanigans. Bad blogger I know!

Our boss had mentioned a restaurant called Fumo to Matt & so here we decided to go. I didn't look into where we were going just that I was excited & hungry, & with a name like Fumo I actually thought I was going for a night of Sake & Sushi. It turned out to be an Italian restaurant & me finding out that I have zero language knowledge & a laughing boyfriend.

We were swept inside by the welcoming & stereotypically beautiful italian staff to a secluded table by a window that over looks the high street. I also spent pretty much the whole night explaining to Matt that I loved the bag in the window of Louis Vuitton. I just got a laugh back. 

We started on some Prosecco & sipped the bubbles until a beautiful, chisled italian waiter came to take our order. He explained that Fumo was best served as a Tapas & so to choose around 5 to 8 dishes, so we started on the menu deciding what we wanted & we must have completely misunderstood  him as we tried to order 5 to 8 dishes each! He had to tell us to calm down after we tried to order around 14 dishes & explained that that it would not all fit on our little table for two! Oops.

We chose the steak of tuna marinated in capers & sweet onion,

stuffed pizza breads with buffalo mozerella & prosciutto.

Chargrilled artichoke pizza base with vegetables &  buffalo mozerella.

Plain cheese & tomato pizza base.

Lasagne al Forno, layers of pasta with slow cooked beef ragu & Gnocchi Gorgonzola in a baked parmesan basket.

After finishing our tapas, we decided to move on to a section of the fumo desserts that included raspberry panacotta, tiramisu, chocolate gateaux, lemon cheesecake.

We managed to clear up the whole platter, which is more than I can say for the other Tapas that we sadly could not finish (it's a good job the waiter stopped us).

After desserts we wandered over to the bar & got chatting to the barman, he was hilarious & informative & highly recommended the above cocktails which were my favourite of the night. Strawberry & basil cocktail. 

We then witnessed some flaming guiness shots which are made of Disaranno, Baileys, & sambuca. We were amazed by this & asked to try them & so the barman gave us a few for free. Top bar man.

It's safe to say that Matt was a little tipsy towards the end.
