Jamie’s Deli at Jamie’s Italian

To cater to workers around the vicinity of harbourfront area who are time starved, Jamie’s Deli made its debut based on a grab-and-go concept that starts from 8.30am from Monday to Friday where PMEBs may grab a bite or coffee on their way to work. Things like croissants, muffins, tarts, nut bars, cookies and brownies will be available.

From 11am onwards, guests can also look forward to ordering a range of fresh salads and artisanal sandwiches which will be rotated once every two days.

Those who are looking for a lighter but fulfilling meal may opt for Big Fat Greek Salad (S$5.50+/S$8.50+) which is made with fresh lettuce, cucumber, tomato, onions, feta cheese and mustard dressing. The dressing makes the whole salad extremely refreshing.

We also tried their Margherita Pizza (S$5.50+) made with fresh tomato sauce, mozzarella, fresh basil, parmesan and extra virgin oil, as well as the Italian Hot Pizza (S$5.50+) made with crushed tomatoes, mozzarella, hot soppressata and wild oregano.

Apart from the items at Jamie’s Deli, here are a couple of new things that we’ve tried from Jamie’s Italian’s new menu.

Garlic & Chilli Prawns (S$16.95+) are really fresh and seasoned with butter, parsley and ciabatta croutons to give it a little nice crunch.

I know how difficult it is to cook risotto and hence, I can tell that a lot of effort has been involved to perfect the Seafood Risotto (S$26.95+), which has garlic, squid, mussels, bronze fennel, crispy capers, shellfish sauce and a little saffron. The risotto has absorbed the sweetness of the seafood which made it extremely flavourful. This dish is only available at Vivocity’s outlet.

Porcini Tagliatelle S$17.95+ / S$26.95+ is made with creamy wild mushroom sauce, gremolata, parmesan and herby breadcrumbs. The tagliatelle pasta is cooked till mildy chewy but doesn’t stick to the teeth. Definitely a crowd pleaser with its exquisite presentation where we had to lightly drizzle the breadcrumbs on top of the noodles before we dig in. Yums!

Oxtail Lasagne (S$29.95+) is a 12-hour slow-cooked oxtail and lightly topped with mozzarella and parmesan. Beef lovers would definitely love this, which is only available at Forum’s outlet.

The sea bass in Italian Fish & Chips (S$29.95+) is beer-battered and deep fried till golden brown, and served with polenta chips, mushy peas and tartare sauce. We were pretty amazed by the polenta chips, which were deep fried to a nice and crispy texture. It was as good as eating potato fries, but with less guilt!

Tiramisu (S$13.95+) contains coffee-flavoured sponge cake, kahlua, orange mascarpone and chocolate shavings. The orange mascarpone is a nice twist to give the classic dessert a citrus flavour.

Pecan Pie (S$12.95+) is made with butterscotch and salted caramel ice cream. A very satisfying dessert with a nice crunch when we bite into the pie crust.

Epic Chocolate Brownie (S$13.95+) is indeed epic. The rich chocolate brownie is drizzled with chocolate sauce and comes with ameretto ice cream and caramelised amaretti popcorn.

Jamie’s Italian Christmas Menu

From now till 31 December, Jamie’s Italian will be celebrating the holiday season with a duo of Christmas menus, featuring festive Italian classics with a Jamie Oliver twist. We had a chance to savour on the delectable lunch and dinner festive menus which are available at S$49.90++ and S$65.90++ respectively. As part of a CSR initiative, the restaurant will also be giving back this Christmas, with donations from the proceeds of all kids’ meals going towards helping the Singapore Children’s Society.

Festive Italian Pate comes with toasted ciabatta topped with silky smooth free range chicken liver & vin santo pate (wine), grated parmesan cheese and cripsy sage. The chicken liver has a rich, velvety smooth flavor and has the right amount of fat in it.

Smoked Salmon Crostini is packed full of flavour with crunchy sourdough, topped with delicious smoked salmon, herby whipped ricotta and fresh grated horseradish.

Bresaola Salad is made with slices of cured beef bresaola that has been aged 2-3 months, creamy ricotta, sliced pears, garden leaves & toasted almonds with Parmesan & aged balsamic. This dish is a crowd-pleaser and is simple and nutritious enough to be eaten as a main dish.

With the pasta freshly made daily, the Wild Mushroom Pappardelle is tossed with pan-fried Paris brown and oyster mushrooms in a garlicky porcini mushroom sauce with fresh chilli and a lemony gremolata. It was my first time trying out this unique pasta which is extremely chewy and takes eating pasta to a whole new level.

For those who prefers white meat and seafood, Sea Bass is the best choice. Together with steamed mussels and saffron aioli, it is cooked in white wine, chilli, fennel and garlic broth. The sauce has a balance of spiciness and sweetness, probably from the seafood itself and has a nice and thick consistency.

Gennaro’s Porchetta is stuffed with their secret blend of chilli, fennel, orange zest, apricot, apple and herbs. The pork belly is slow cooked overnight and then crisped up to order. Served with braised red cabbage, pan juices and smashed crackling, it is bursting with flavor with every bite of the meat.

Succulent, tender and juicy, Roasted Baby Chicken has been marinated in herbs and roasted to perfection and served with pork sausage stuffing wrapped in pancetta, proper bread sauce and lots of gravy.

All main courses above come with a side of potatoes roasted with rosemary, brussels sprouts roasted and topped with parmesan and pangrattato (herby breadcrumbs), parsnips, celeriac and squash roasted with olive oil and rosemary.

Tangy Lemon Tart has a silky smooth texture, with a buttery biscuit base and topped with vanilla cream, fresh pomegranate and mint tips. I love anything with lemon and this is totally heaven to me! tongue

Tiramisu Pavlova is a slight twist on the classic tiramisu with additional crunchy meringue, topped with a scoop of tiramisu, chocolate ice cream, crushed toasted hazelnuts and hot chocolate sauce.

White Chocolate Cheesecake is made with mascarpone cheese which results in a smoother silkier cheesecake. Consists of a crunchy amaretti biscuit base, a silky smooth clementine curd, orange segments, mint and crushed honeycomb, every bite of the cheesecake is luxuriously smooth and dense.

Both menus come with a welcome glass of bubbly and guests can also supplement their menu with a glass of limoncello for an additional S$5.50++ and a cup of coffee or tea at S$3.50++ per person.
