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

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

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...
