We have to say the eating at Jamie’s Italian at Square One Mall was an experience that we will never forget! Jamie Oliver’s restaurant makes you feel like you are in a eatery located in the heart of Italy. He has a unique way of transporting your tastebuds to the Italian coast.
Take for instance the Garlic Bread that we ordered off of the ‘Nibbles’ section of the menu. We loved the oozy, garlicky flavour and not to mention the herb butter that was delicately spread on top. And you know that garlic bread is not garlic bread unless you have thinly sliced Prosciutto cascading on each slice. There was no way that we could have passed up that kind of starter!
Famous Prawn Linguine
Are we allowed to say that these prawns were to DIE for!?! They were the perfect size because with every bite there was a prawn to be had. We could taste the freshness of the tomato sauce and the classic Italian theme of garlic could be tasted with this prawns dish. Now we know that Arugula is typically used in salad but this was an unexpected, delicious additive. Some of the most crisp, refreshing seafood we have feasted on.
Italian Steak & Fries
We’ll have our Steak medium please! This flat iron steak was a perfect, thin lean cut that had those signature grill marks that you look for. We agreed that the Salsa Rosso Crudo created that burst of acidity that did not overpower the dish. Having Italian-spiced skinny fries with our steak was absolutely the icing on the cake. Every bite of this dish was excellently seasoned and well executed!
