Everyday is holidayyyyyyyyy in Bali. Who agrees?! Today I spent the whole day eating out and shopping. I hope you're having a great day too. After staying at Hard Rock Hotel they invited me to visit Jamie's Italian which is just outside the hotel. We could not say no :)
I have been wanting to go to this newly opened restaurant because I am a fan of Jamie Oliver! Finally had the chance to have lunch here and I am sharing my experience for you guys here!
Somehow when I first entered the restaurant it seriously gave me this London vibe. I just love it. The friendly staffs are also ready to serve you.
Crunchy Italian Nachos, as appetizer, seasoned perfectly, the saltiness versus the sweet dipping sauce. YUum!
Crispy Squid. It is deep-fried to perfection, I hate it when you bite squid and it's chewy and dry, that's an overcooked squid. Jamie's kitchen won't dissapoint you for sure! Drizzled with chili, garlic & parsley and you get garlic aioli for dipping.
Lamb Chops Scottadito : Juicy chops grilled under a brick, served with polenta chips, pickled red onion, smashed nuts, fresh mint & spicy yoghurt for dunking.
Garlic & Chili Prawns : Cooked in their shells with chilli, garlic butter, ciabatta & parsley, served with baked garlic buns
Chicken Pizzaiola: sweet tomato sauce, olives, capers, roasted sun-dried tomatoes & creamy mozzarella.
Squid & Mussel Spaghetti Nero: Flash-fried squid & mussels with tender octopus, capers, chili, anchovies, tomatoes & white wine. Oh this is a recommended menu! I think all of the pasta menus you'd want to order. Believe me when I say Pasta is from Italia.
The Famous Prawn Linguine: Fried garlicky prawns with fennel, tomatoes, chili, saffron, fish broth & lemony rocket. Texture is so soft and so fresh, when asked yes Jamie's makes their own pasta. Everything is handmade! Oh I love it! Definitely will come back for this one.
Amalfi Lemon Meringue Cheesecake: Velvety mascarpone & lemon cheesecake topped with Italian meringue, served with lemon curd & blackcurrants. I love it, I love everything cheese! Cheese is light, meringue is light too so this won't make your tummy bloat. This particular dessert menu is HUUGE! You can share this one definitely.
Raspberry Rippled Pavlova: Light & gooey meringue, zesty cream, macerated raspberries & smashed honeycomb. Don't worry about your weight, just dig in. Worry less enjoy life! *hint: yes it's so sweet*
Creamy Panna Cotta: Vanilla panna cotta with a seasonal fruit compote. The B-E-S-T! If I were alone I would just order the Garlic Pasta and this dessert and I'd be happier with my life that day.
