Last week we had a family dinner at the Jamie Italian, Vivo City and totally enjoyed the food!
For starters, we had Fish Plank ($17), Meat Plank (15.50), Cauliflower Fritters ($12.50), Chicken Wings ($12.50), Tomato Bruschetta ($16.50), and Squash Bruschetta ($12.50).
The Cauliflower Fritters ($12.50) were a big hit with the kids; they were all gone before I could take a snap shot! I personally like the Fish Plank ($17); it’s a variety of small bites; the beetroot infused salmon was my favorite. The Meat Plank ($15.50) is a mix of cold cuts, and I find the salami a bit strong on taste. JI has a smoking station where they take great care in curing the meat. Chicken Wings ($12.50) were good; though a little spicy for the kids. Love the Bruschettas!! The flavors are great especially the Squash Bruschetta.
Main dishes were Lamb Chops ($32), Spinach Ravioli ($26.50), Prawn Linguinne ($17) and Cannelloni ($19.50). The Lamb Chops were good, daughter liked it very much. The kids enjoyed the Ravioli; no chance to eat that! I find the Linguinne a little hard and the pasta could do with more seasoning. The Cannelloni is quite a heavy dish, not for one person.
Desserts were Tiramisu ($11.50), Brownies ($11.50) and Lemon Meringue Pie ($9.50). The Brownies were average; had better ones and I don’t get the popcorns; why were they even there? Meringue was well made, light and not too sweet and the little bits of basil bits add a twist to the sweet. The best dessert was the Tiramisu! This is by far the best Tiramisu I had for a long time now. I could taste the liquer and coffee; which are so lacking in many so-called Tiramisu.
Overall, it was a good experience, a burst of different flavors! And the staff was commendable; cheerful and tried their best in explaining the dishes. The mix of tables and chairs, wood and metal, the variety of hanging lights, somehow come together nicely and created a cosy atmosphere. And I like that.
