Jamie's Italian: Finally back again

The last time I dined at Jamie's Italian was for my hubby's birthday last year, a couple of months after they first opened their doors. Since then it's been hard to get a booking when I wanted and the wait for a table was usually around 1.5 hours. To be honest I've given up on trying to get in again, I've tried three times in the last 6 months without much luck. The first attempt was for my birthday this year with a few of my girlfriends - we thought we'll try our luck at 5:30pm, one of my girlfriends who got there early was asked to take a seat because we had to all be present before they'll give us a table, however when we were all there, we were told that we had to go to the back of the queue and the wait was 1.5 hours! What? I was not happy so we went elsewhere. The second time we tried getting in was for a belated mother's day dinner with my mum-in-law and again it was 1.5 hours, we left a mobile number but by the time they called us we had gone elsewhere. The latest attempt was with hubby but the wait was again 1.5 hours so we left a mobile number and never got a call! I haven't been overly impressed to say the least. So why did I try again? Because my parents wanted to try it. So at 12pm on a Sunday afternoon, I rocked up to Jamie's Italian with my mum and dad and was told that the wait was only 30 minutes! Woohoo! We left a mobile number and they called us only 15 minutes later to tell us that there was a table available. Yay!

Marumo

I'm baaaack and there is no better restaurant than Marumo to share my experience with you for my first blog post in 6 months, this is because getting a booking at Marumo is an achievement in itself as they do not take bookings more than 2 months in advance and they are currently fully booked until 31st December 2014! So when JL asked if I wanted to join her for dinner with her hubby and workmates, I jumped at the chance and boy was I glad I did.

M.I.A

You may have noticed that I've been M.I.A (missing in action) for the last 6 months and I'm sorry if you have missed me. Work started taking over my life earlier this year and only now is it starting to settle down. I am determined to make a return and continue to share my love of taste testing food and life and sharing it with you.

Thank you for your continued support and please leave me a message if there are any restaurants that you would like me to taste test
