A Meal At Jamie Oliver Italian Restaurant

ON THE FIFTH AND OUR LAST DAY OF OUR FREE AND EASY TRIP, we went for an Italian meal at Jamie Oliver Restaurant. The day before we went there, we saw a queue right outside the restaurant and I was told that this place is normally crowded every day especially during lunch hour...Knowing that, we went there earlier to beat the crowd...
There was no queue outside but there were already some patrons waiting inside instead..
We were told to wait fifteen minutes for a table...
While waiting, I browsed around...all Jamie's cookbooks and products.. 
And the ambience...
I was also told that this place was formerly a bank... 
 A very huge one too!
No wonder it does not look like a restaurant...
 The empty chairs are for those waiting in line... 
I even find the "vaults" turned into "restrooms" interesting..
And now ... the Italian food.... 
Jamie Italian Burger...
A Giant One!
Chargrilled beef burger with fontina cheese in a brioche bun
with fried onions and grilled mortadella...
This is Fish In A Bag...
Consists of baked sustainable fish, clams, mussels, chilli with Sicillian cracked wheat
and pine nuts topped with fiery arrabbiata sauce..
*words taken out from the menu*
Pasta with lamb fillings... 
Perfectly done.... 
Squids with Italian sauce...
Cannot remember what this is called...
*Was busy eating that I forgot to take down the name of the dish*
hahahaaa..
Another Italian dish which I cannot recall what it is called...
But I can still remember that each dish tasted GREAT!
Something very different from what I have tasted before...
Great Place to come by...
No wonder there is always a Q...
Food portions are not huge as I have expected..
Call me "jakun"...
I never heard of Jamie Oliver until I was actually there for the first time in history!

  4. I thought I was only away for one day, but seems like I missed a lot of posts already!

    OMG! You don't know who Jamie is... then you know Gordon "f**king" Ramsay or not? I think he is not as popular in Australia, that is why you get to queue for tables. If you are in London, you can forget queuing, all his restaurants there need to have advance reservation by at least a month or two! :/

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Phil's Fish Market And Eatery, Moss Landing

DAY TRIP TO MOSS LANDING...  I did not know what to expect since I had not been there before.  We took an hour plus drive to this seafood place, it is an open air restaurant whereby you can dine by the sea or inside.  We chose the latter, since it was quite windy in the open air.  With a baby kid, it is best to have some warmth inside the restaurant. Yes, there was already a queue by the time we reached there, it was actually between lunch and dinner and yet, patrons were ready to have their meal.  Though the queue looked long, we could get a place within 10 minutes or so.   Almost the same picture but someone was looking at me when I took these...  Almost reaching the finishing line to enter ... Clam Chowder to start off...  Cioppino... A combination of seafood... Mussels, prawns, crabs, clams...  Eat what the fishermen eat... Dip the bread in the sauce... Yes, I like this... Fried chicken chunks...  And I still prefer the Cioppino compared to this....  Baby enjoying his own food befo
