After a very tough summer season, Dubai is all set for the winters. I personally love Dubai winters, I find it the best. There is so much to do and one thing I absolutely love is spending time with my friends at a sheesha lounge. Amwaj Rotana has recently launched their new sheesha rooftop, Fumo lounge. We landed in Fumo on a Friday evening and the experience was amazing.
The place is done up really well with a friendly and courteous staff. The place is ideal for sheesha, drinks and they cook up some good food too. We started off we a couple of sheeshas and cocktails. Their blueberry sheesha is a must try and we loved the fact that it lasted longer without hurting our throats. Fumo has a wide selection of signature cocktails and mocktails. Our favorites from the drinks were the Moroccan iced tea and the raspberry mule. The Moroccan iced tea complimented the sheesha really well. If you guys are feeling adventurous then go for the alcoholic Iced Turkish coffee.
Coming to the food, we got the cold mezze to start things off. I really loved the avocado baba ghanoush and the toasted pumpkin and tahina purée. I love a restaurant when they serve freshly baked bread with the cold mezze *brownie points*. From the hot starters, we absolutely loved the sujuk which is a spicy lamb flatbread and the chicken falafel was delicious too. We also got a nice Arabic mix grill which was amazing. It had lamb kofta, shish tawook, lamb chops and jumbo prawns. Fumo also serves some really good maki rolls and the tempura prawns were super crispy.
We ended on a sweet note with two of their best desserts, kunafa and chocolate lava cake and we enjoyed both. I would definitely recommend this place for a lovely winter evening in Dubai
