Who else likes going to quirky and fun restaurants? I am not a massive foodie. I am however a massive fan of uncovering the hidden beauties cities have to offer and this weekend I happened to be in Warwick doing exactly that! Today I am going to show you Warwick very first vegetarian & vegan restaurant – FUSCA!
Hidden at the end of a cobbled alleyway on Smith Street sits the entrance of Fusca. Stairs lead you deep into a cellar where you find the most cutest set up I have ever seen in a restaurant before. I first though I would find myself in a greenhouse surrounded by nature and plants. A place that celebrates vegetarianism. Instead I found myself sitting in a brick-ceilinged vault with no natural light and a central heating system nailed to the ceiling & decorated beautifully with door knobs!
The walls weren’t painted, oh no no not at Fusca! Little bits of scrap art are found in the corners of the small room. This just touched all the corners of my heart. I journal every single day. I am a HUUUUUGE art journal junkie! The little pieces of art really made the venue so much more intimate and comfortable.
There is a small seating area on the patio of the restaurant which where I originally wanted to sit. We have been getting very little sunshine this summer in the UK so the fact the sun was out this particular Sunday made me want to eat as well as enjoy the weather!
Boy was I glad I didn’t end up doing that. If you want to enjoy the fruits of the restaurant you need to plunge deep into its beating heart so off I went to find the best seat in the main dining area.
With its candle-lit subterranean setting, a collage that represented the “wall of randomness,” the entire restaurant was bursting with interesting architectural features.
The menu in itself is very imaginative. I am not a vegetarian or a vegan myself but I was excited to try these dishes out!
I had decided to go for the ‘Soup of the Day’ which was made up of lentils, parsnips, and coriander.
For my mains I had a pakora wrap! My GODDD! The pakoras were DIVINEEEEE!
The most fluffiest pakoras I have ever tasted!
To go with my meal I had a vegan cola made from herbs! It didn’t quite do the same job coke does for me but it was a nice alternative.
The food looked and tasted amazing & I would go back there in a heart beat. Every time!
