Cumulus Up… up and away!

Stopped by Cumulus Up earlier this year for a few drinks with girlfriends and ended up having one of the best meals ever!  Cumulus Up is the baby sibling to Cumulus Inc. and it does a great job of living up to the high standards set by Cumulus Inc.

Started with a dish from the specials menu, beef carpaccio which was topped with crispy fried shallots, creamy sauce and pickled onions.

I’ve since been back to Cumulus Up twice and have ordered the duck waffle, foie gras & prune each time!   It sounds a bit weird, but it’s absolutely delicious.

The ricotta dumplings, oregano butter was a great dish.  Fluffy dumplings with a rich citrus infused butter sauce.  Very good!

The kale fritters were the most surprising thing to me.  They were fried with a batter of some sort, so they were super crispy and salty.  Was so addictive!

Lastly the spiced lamb ribs, smoked tomato dish totally rocked my world.  The lamb ribs were super tender (with a nice layer of fat) and fell off the bone.   I’m drooling just thinking about it.IMG_1209

The lamb ribs are in contention to be one of my all time favourite dishes.    Love the food, love the venue – cool, casual, good drinks, great service. Can’t wait to go back!
