Lunch at Fuego, Fenwick

When Katie from Feeding Boys asked if I'd like to meet in town for coffee this soon escalated to lunch and we selected Fuego in Fenwick Food Hall as our destination for a mid-week catch up. With a promise of Mediterranean inspired tapas, hand stretched pizzas and charcuterie, Fuego had been on my list to visit since Fenwick's re-launch last year and I had only heard good things.

I was impressed with the menu which features charcutterie, cheese, sharing boards, hot tapas, salads and pizzas. I must admit I was tempted by their Napoli style pizzas which are cooked at 400C however we decided to order a few tapas between us so we could sample as much of the delicious sounding menu as possible.

The tapas was very reasonably priced with dishes sitting around the £5-£6 mark. We ordered a total of 7 dishes between us (I didn't get a chance to photograph everything) and along with a couple of drinks and a service charge out lunch worked out at £20 each.

Spicy Meatballs with Harissa and Tomato Sauce - £5

Crispy Calamari with Safron Aioli - £5
Our server explained that the dishes would leave the kitchen and arrive at our table as soon as they were ready rather than all together - this was fine with us as we were STARVING! The portions were fairly large and I would recommend 5-6 dishes between 2 for a nice lunch.

Basque Chicken and Chorizo Pinxos - £5.50
I think Katie's favourite dish may have been the Basque Chicken and Chorizo (pictured above) and I have to agree is was very succulent. For £5.50 this is maybe the only dish I would have liked a little more chicken on the plate.

Gnocchi al forno with Tomato, Mozzarella and Pesto - £5
It was fab catching up with all things blogging - bloggers can chat for hours! Fuego is definitely the kind of place you could sit for a few hours grazing and enjoying a bottle of wine. I'm pretty sure if we both didn't have the school run later this would have been the case.

Patatas Bravas - £4.50
My favourite dish was the Gnocchi - the tomato, mozzarella and pesto sauce was simply divine. The Patatas Bravas were very good too and very generous in their portion size too. In fact I could just eat it all again now!

If you're looking for a fantastic place to catch up with friends over good tapas and wine, Fuego is a good bet.



  1. I love sharing tapas (unless it's with Simon cos he eats it all too fast for me to get any!). I definitely want to head back to Fuego soon, you have to be so fast on a Saturday though, the tables all go very quickly!

  2. Oooh I haven't tried here yet I'll have to check it out next time I'm in town.

  3. The hummous and flatbread was amazing. The hummous came out hot from the oven in a clay pot.
