It is a New year, with plenty of Birthday celebrations. This time it was Cassie's Birthday, she is the first for the year. The choice of Restaurant was Jamie's Italian, conveniently located in the CBD near Wynyard station. We were not able to book a time we wanted over the phone, so we decided to try our luck and get a walk in seat (they dedicate specific seats). The first one there was Felicia and she put our name down for a table for 4. After 2 hours of waiting, we got the text message to say our table was ready, quite busy for a Thursday evening. By the time we got to our table, we were starving!
|Polenta Chips $8.50|
Crispy fried with rosemary and parmesan
|Baked Mushrooms $14.50 |
Swiss browns with crispy "music bread" and smoked buffalo mozzarella
|Sicilian Sardine Bruschetta $10.50|
Pickled fillets with red onion, pine nuts and sultanas, served with a parsley and mint salad
|Fennel Salad $7.50|
|The Jamie's Italian Burger $19.50|
Wagga Wagga beef witn fontina cheese, pancetta, soft lettuce, tomato salsa, dill pickles, chilli and fried onions
The Burger HUGE in size, massive Beef patty to match, fresh ingredients and quite a handful. Sadly this also lacked in flavour, how a burger becomes bland...I can not understand. If you order the burger, I do recommend not ordering as many starters, as it is quite a huge size.
|Black Angel Spaghetti $14.00/$22.00|
Squid ink pasta, scallops, garlic, chilli, anchovies, wine and capers
The Black Spaghetti was quite nice and one of the dishes that did not require added salt.
I dont know why I have been writing the latest hate blogs, but this place not only made us wait 2 hours for a table, the food was so and so in flavour and to top it off, the waiteress was taking dishes away and almost took my eye with my own knife...
|Zumbo's Flourless chocolate cake|
