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! :/

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
