Fuumi Fuumi, West Melbourne

MELBOURNE | Fuumi Fuumi is a small Japanese cafe and bakery that opened at the start of 2021. The space evokes the kinds of cafes that you find in Japan. As soon as I stepped inside I was transported to bunches past enjoyed in Tokyo and Osaka.

Everything is baked fresh on site, daily. There’s the popular shokupan bread, along with an assortment of cakes, and pastries to enjoy on site or to-go. Think black sesame cookies, Earl Grey and orange layer sponge cake, and matcha croissants.

For larger brunch options, it’s a selection of sandos and other dishes, most of which feature thick cut shokupan. One of the most popular items on the menu is the fried ebi and egg salad sando. Lightly coated fried prawns and Fuumi special egg salad, with seafood and tartare sauce on freshly baked thick cut Namu shokupan, and a side salad. It’s very good.

Also recommended are the Nama shokupan toast with cream cheese and seasonal fruits, and the Kabayaki salmon tail bowl. The latter features slow cooked salmon in Kabayaki sauce and scrambled eggs, with thick cut Namu shokupan.

For drinks, it’s espresso and filter coffee made using Toby’s Estate beans, as well as hot and iced lattes like matcha and hojicha. The signature Fuumi coffee is an iced latte with house made honeycomb candy, sea salt cream, and caramel sauce.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
