The new summer menu at FUMI takes diners on a culinary journey through Japan, with two kaiseki menus featuring ingredients from prefectures such as Ōita, Hokkaido, Kyoto, Miyazaki, Kochi, Wakayama, Ehime and Shizuoka.
Located on the sixth floor of California Tower, at the epicentre of party area Lan Kwai Fong, the relatively new restaurant took over the space previously occupied by another Japanese restaurant, Ore-no Kappou.
A large variety of Japanese dishes are offered at FUMI, ranging from chargrilled skewers to sashimi. The six-course ($880) and eight-course ($1180) kaiseki menus take diners through an assortment of dishes, starting with poached abalone and Kuruma prawn and continuing onwards to a tasty line-up of sashimi, grilled fish and tempura. Soup, a unique main of roasted Miyazaki beef sirloin served cold, toro on top of rice in fish broth and Japanese seasonal fruits complete the eight-course menu.
There’s also an option to liven up the menu with a premium sake pairing ($280 for 5 seasonal sakes). To combat the summer heat, we particularly recommend the Dassai 50 Junmai Daiginjo sparkling sake.
