Approaching Christmas, the month of December is always filled with festive spirit and countless of gatherings and celebrations. Therefore, my friends and I planned an early Christmas dinner last December - just a few days before Christmas - for banter, exchanging of gifts and to celebrate the beginning of the holidays. At the same time, a new restaurant, Fumo, opened nearby and it looked nice so we wanted to give it a try.
Fumo serves Italian food but in a tapas concept. So everything ordered is for sharing. That fit really well for us since we enjoyed trying various food. The extensive menu was everything that I wanted to try (like always) so it was a tough choice trying to decide what to order. It's also harder when there's everything I wanted to try but also choosing the few that everyone would be happy with trying. At least, we were not a picky bunch. Finally, after discussing again and again, we settled for 9 plates for the 4 of us. Here's our choice:
-Dining in Fumo-
-Crab and avocado salad-
-Duck and apple salad with rockets-
-Gorgonzola gnocchi in a crispy parmesan basket-
-Roast pork belly with baked potato-
-Chicken and pesto pizza-
-Proscuitto and mushroom pizza-
-Spinach and cheese flat bread-
The food was satisfactory. It was heart-warming for the season and definitely felt very festival having a table filled with food. All the dish were suitable to our palate and it was very delicious. The ambience was a festive one as well - with its beautiful lighting and the place filled with laughter from other diners as well. It was well spirited.
Following the meal, we ordered the dessert platter which is a platter filled with all their desserts in mini sizes. It was a nice platter to share with each other. It was nothing very special but it was a good finish to our nice meal. I also ordered a Bailey's latte for a nice finish to my lovely dinner.

This is a recommended place for people who love to try out various food when visiting a restaurant. It is very lovely and the staff are friendly too. It is now in one of my favourite restaurant list.
Happy seasons, happy tummy.
