Jamie Olivers Italian Restaurant Leeds

We’ve had a full week at work,with lots of overtime , so I had no time to cook and to be honest the fridge is almost empty.So Nick says :‘Let’s eat out’ .Ok,but…where?’How about Jamie Olivers?‘ .

I grab my gold club member card and call them to see if they have anymore free tables.

‘In half an hour.’

‘Perfect!We’re on our way!’

Anyone can register for a free Gold Club Card,and if you do so,everytime you pop by you will receive small freebies.

This time we received crunchy stuffed olives.

I’m not a big fan of chilli, I admire it in small quantities but Nick likes it,so this starter was great for him.Crunchy meat-stuffed olives with fried garlic and tomatoe sauce.A bit spicy,but great.

For the starter,I ordered my favourite Baked Chestnut Mushrooms.

Just imagine this: the taste of crispy bread with juicy mushrooms,adding the flavour of smoked mozarella and a touch of thyme…heavenly.

Nick ordered the Tomato and Ricotta Bruschetta ,and he describes it as ‘the harmony of toasted bread with suculent cherry tomatoes on top,and soft ricotta with fresh basil leaves.’

For my main I ordered Grilled Chicken Puttanesca.

What I want to point out at this dish is that I felt that the chicken was free range.You can really feel it!The taste is different,it looks different , and every single ingredient used for this meal is fresh.This is what makes me want to come back and try more.

The chicken had that great grilled taste and it is served on a toast,with grilled bread , rocket ,tomato sauce and extra parmezan of course. Also,the veggies are included (a bit too spicy for me but very tasty) and the crostini (which I didn’t like because I’m not a fan of corn but Nick loved them).

Nick was happy with his pick.’This is just a wonderful meal.I wanted to go with something light,so I’ve chosen the spaghetti with prawns and tomato sauce and it tasted so good.”

I wanted lots of chocolate for my desert,and that’s exactly what I got , Epic Brownie.

It felt like layers and layers of  warm chocolate melting in my mouth  blended with the taste of vanilla ice cream.And when I thought it couldn’t get any better,I felt the sweetness of buttery- caramelised popcorn…that’s what I call a smart combination!

Nick went for the Amalfi Lemon Meringue Cheesecake:’I’m a big fan of cheesecakes.The soft cream ,combined with the blueberry jam and the crunchy bottom made this dessert be one of my favourites.It was the perfect combination of sour and sweet , but the final bite,with the mint on top was the bomb.’

  1. Great blog! Do you have any helpful hints for aspiring writers?
    I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything.

    Would you propose starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many
    choices out there that I’m completely overwhelmed ..
    Any suggestions? Many thanks!

    1. Hello!Thank you very much! 🙂
      You can start on a blogger or wordpress platform if you are on a budget and can’t invest yet in blogging,but I preffered to have my own domain so I created my own website @Godaddy but I pay for wordpress hosting,which makes everything much easier.I’m absolutely no expert at websites,but everything that you want and need you can find it google-ing it or on youtube(which is easier because it shows you step by step).
      Hope it helps! 🙂
      Thanks for poppin’ by! 🙂
