Recently I was kindly offered the chance to go review Jamie's Italian in Birmingham, I am a massive fan of Italian food so of course I jumped at the chance. I went to the restaurant in Birmingham city centre which is about half an hour away from me on the train, when we arrived we were asked if a seat indoors would be okay as all of the seats outside were taken. We were taken to our seats and given the menus, our server told us about the cocktail on the specials board which sounded amazing, so I went for it. Luke had a fresh lemonade. He also offered us water for our table (always a great thing in my opinion) It took a while for me to decide what to have for my meal and in the end I went for the red pepper soup and Luke had Fritto Misto which is fish and squid tossed in fennel spiced flour! We also had a bread basket to accompany our starters, my soup was so amazing and had so much flavour.
For my main I went for a yummy veggie bolognese which was jam packed with lentils, mushrooms and herbs. It was super different to any veggie bolognese that I've had before but it seemed some what healthier. Luke had a chicken burger which was made with the thighs instead of the breast and our server told him it was healthier and a better cut. We also had two sides of their funky chips which were insanely good, seasoned with garlic and parsley, I was in love. Throughout the meal our server was charismatic, funny and lovely and it added to the charm of the place. For dessert we had three scoops of ice cream, mine were salted caramel, with two chocolate and a perfect amount of honeycomb pieces, drizzled with chocolate sauce. Luke went for the chocolate, vanilla and salted caramel, as well as the honeycomb pieces and his was topped with butterscotch sauce.
I really enjoyed my dining experience at Jamie's and I will be going back soon, I have wanted to go for a while but didn't know that the pricing was so reasonable and they also offer amazing deals throughout the week for a £10.95 super lunch for two courses! As well as an evening meal for three courses only costing £18.95. Bargain.
This meal was complimentary in exchange for an honest review!*
