Fümé describes itself as a ‘neighbourhood eatery’, that dishes-up home-style comfort food that purports to ‘reflect Dubai’s multicultural population’. The menu has been developed by British executive chef Grant Brunsden, who designed each dish using a mix of hot and cold smoking, curing and slow-cooking techniques. Inside, the decor is quirky with a mish-mash of unique artworks and chandeliers made from odd materials. Try the signature hot-smoked salmon, coco husk-grilled and charcoal-oven-cooked steak and seafood, black cod shumai and the braised beef cheek. Finish it all off with a satisfyingly robust apple or rhubarb crumble.
