Fume | Dubai | UAE

Welcome back all! Today's post is probably one of my favourite types – FOOD!! I love eating out and have put a little mission on to blog about more of the places I go to let you all know my thoughts and if you should also check it out!

So while I was in Dubai for Christmas Jack and I escaped family life and headed out to Peir 7 at the Dubai Marina to eat at Fume. We arrived for an early dinner at about 5.30 and were taken to a lovely table overlooking the Marina. Were were given plenty time to decide on our drinks and meals before the waiter came back. I picked the spiced Pina Colada type drink and Jack had an 'Ultimate Gin and Tonic.

The food didn’t take long to come, we started with what is described as ‘Sourdough Bread with Smoked Butter and Lava Salt’ - sounds fancy right? So we were little shocked when some standard toast arrived (I think we were expecting fresh rolls), however is was alright. 
Onto mains I chose a huge Angus Rump Burger and Jack had a Beef Cheek Rendang with Pitta Bread and both meals were lovely. Once we had finished however it look a long time for anyone to clear our plates and at times it felt as though there were no staff at all while others were not being observant and clearing our table.

However, once we had finally had the mains cleared we went in for dessert. The dessert choice was great, possibly the best part of the menu! I went for a Banoffee Parfait and Jack went for the Foot-Long (YES FOOT LONG!!) Nutella ├ęclair. Now these were easily the showstopper portion of the meal, both were beautify presented as well as tasting amazing and we finished them off in a matter of minutes.

It again took a little while once the desserts had been cleared for the bill come (we asked for it when the waiter took the plates) so that was a little disappointing as we were ready to head back home, however as Jack and I enjoy each others company it wasn’t the end of the world.

Now onto the price. Fume is reasonably priced for Dubai standards with a main meal costing between 55-85aed (~£12 -£20). The desserts were also reasonable (for Dubai) with each coming in at around 35 aed (£8). We were lucky enough to have a ‘The Entertainer’ voucher that took the price of one of the main meals off bringing the whole cost of the meal down (YEESSSS!!!) making it very palatable and pleasant.

Overall I think I was expecting a little more from Fume with it being in the prestigious Peir 7 complex, however it was very much a no fuss eatery with good wholesome food and a lovely location. I would recommend for a easy eat with family, but possibly not for that special event or occasion.

Let me know in the comments below if you have eaten at Fume and what your thoughts are? Also where are your favourite places to eat in London (we are back home now) – I am always looking for recommendations.
