I was all excited when I heard that Jamie Italian was coming to Singapore and I knew I had to try. I actually had the opportunity to try the one in London previously and I really missed it. I made an online reservation in July for September so it was really a long wait till the day that I finally got to try. However, booking online have it advantages too as we were shown straight to our tables when we arrived. I heard they do allocate certain seats for walk-in customer as well but be prepared for a queue. Restaurant ambiance is pleasant and furnished with contemporary modern style fittings coupled with dim lightings. They have a counter and bread table where they prepare appetizers and what they call it Antipasti. The atmosphere of the restaurant is also somewhat noisy as the music in the background was really too loud in my opinion. It was hard to hold a conversation with my friend and I felt that I was shouting across my table. It will be perfect if the music would have been softer cause apart from appreciating the food at the restaurant, it is also important that some may want to be able to chat while eating. Apart from locals, I realized that the restaurant was also filled with a lot of expats as well.

The menu was extensive and have a good selection. In the end, I ordered the Posh Chips ($7.50) as well as the Crispy Stuffed Risotto Balls ($11.50) for the sides. I also ordered the recommended Jool’s Favourite Sicilian Tuna Fusilli ($14.00/$21.00) which has two sizes to choose from and I decided to go with the regular size. I also tried the
Lamb Chop Lollipops ($29.90) and lastly ended with the two tempting desserts of Sour Cherry Bakewell ($9.50) and Tiramisu ($11.50).

So what’s my verdict for the food that I have tried?

Posh Chips ($7.50) - The posh chips is actually truffle fries and it came with generous amount of Parmesan sprinkled at the top. This side a little disappointing as the fries was soggy.

Risotto Balls ($11.50) - I’ve never seen Risotto Balls before or maybe is just me. But looking at the menu, this side looks interestingly enough to order so I thought I’ve give it a shot. Surprisingly, it was bland and did not have taste at all. It didn’t help even though I dipped this into the salsa sauce that came with it.

Jool’s Favourite Sicilian Tuna Fusilli - ($14.00/$21.00) This was actually my favourite of all the food that I’ve ordered. It was filled with Albacore tuna also known as white meat tuna mixed together with tomatoes, garlic, some herbs, cinnamon and it came with one big spoonful of breadcrumbs fragranced with strong taste of herbs.

Lamb Chop Lollipops ($29.90) - This dish name is cute indeed. The lamb chops were grilled and came with crushed creamy artichoke with mint sauce. There were traces of roasted nuts, chilis and fresh mint as well which added tantalizing flavours to this dish.

Sour Cherry Bakewell ($9.50) – It is a Berry tart filled with sweet almond filing and topped with what they called it a clementine sour ripped cream (clementine is a kind of mandarin orange citrus). I love this tart, though I do find the almond taste overpowering. The texture of the crust is baked perfectly together with sugary sour and mellow taste.

Tiramisu ($11.50) – The Tiramisu was served in a clay cold pan, interesting concept and topped with heavy cream. I felt that there wasn’t a balance mixture between the rum and coffee. The rum definitely overwhelmed the coffee and I prefer that it will be a good combination of both. However, I can tell that it was freshly made so that was a plus.

Overall, Food was only plausible and service was also only satisfactory in my opinion but I’m usually not very particular. Price is also on the pricey side and was not really worth it for it taste. However, I do enjoy their desserts better. I would probably go back to give it another chance to try their other dishes.
