Hearty Ital­ian

Simply Her (Singapore) - - Home & Food | News -

We can’t help you skip the hour-long wait for a ta­ble at celebrity chef Jamie Oliver’s Jamie’s Ital­ian, but we can save you the time you’d nor­mally need to mull over the huge menu – just or­der th­ese stellar dishes. Cau­tion: They don’t scrimp on por­tions, so shar­ing is rec­om­mended. STARTERS The An­tipasti Planks ($17 a per­son) are a colour­ful sig­na­ture of Jamie Oliver’s. The Meat Plank fea­tures four cold cuts, a root veg­etable salad, pick­les, mini moz­zarella balls, and pecorino cheese on flat­bread. We pre­ferred the Fish Plank a tiny bit more, with its crispy breaded seafood, beetroot-cured salmon, smoked mack­erel pate on toast, and juicy clams and mus­sels. MAINS The pas­tas are freshly hand­made on-site ev­ery day, and boast a silky tex­ture with a springy bite. The Tagli­atelle Bolog­nese ($15/$22) im­pressed us with its rib­bons of thick pasta soaked in a rich ragu of beef and pork, and topped with crunchy bread­crumbs. DESSERT The Tiramisu ($11.50), served with orange-in­fused mas­car­pone, is an in­ter­est­ing twist on the Ital­ian favourite. But what we re­ally loved was the Creamy Panna Cotta ($9) with berry com­pote, which wob­bled onto our ta­ble and straight into our bel­lies within min­utes.
