Jamie Oliver , a renowned name in the International food scene recently launched the very first Jamie’s pizzeria in Ambience Mall, Gurgaon. Following the passion & pride of Jamie Oliver, this is definitely a happy place for pizza lovers who do not compromise on quality, taste & price. A recent bloggers meet witnessed a display of some of their finest pizzas and sides, so let us help you catch a glimpse of their best!
Prawns in crispy batter : Beautiful batter fried prawns, served with a chunky Italian tartare sauce. We loved the lightness of the prawns, despite them being deep fried and the grainy sauce was the perfect accompaniment!
Hand stretched garlic bread : Crispy and fresh, this was served with rosemary and an olive tapenade. The slightly raw garlic bits definitely increased the flavors a notch higher. However, we would have loved a bit more spice in the dip.
While all toppings were distinct and the variations were impressive, our favorites have to be these.
Funghi Woodman : A delight for all vegetarians, mushrooms and cheese are undoubtedly a match made in heaven. The red onion, fresh mint and parsley subtly brought out all the flavors well.
Stargazy : If you’re a seafood lover, you will definitely love this very combination. With tiger prawns and crushed tomatoes, the fragrance and flavors were bang on.
Paneer Piccante : One for our typical Indian tastebuds, we loved the desi flavors in here. Soft and spicy cottage cheese with roasted bell peppers, ginger and coriander worked well.
Chicken Alla Diavola : Fresh roasted chicken with tomatoes and jalapenos, this was spicy with a secret chilli sauce and fresh chillies. Our favorite chicken pizza on the menu, fresh flavors and definitely deserves a try.
Epic Chocolate brownie : Gooey and melting in the mouth, the brownie was not too sweet for it was beautifully balanced with the chocolate sauce.
Affogato ( drink) : A coffee based dessert, it basically had vanilla ice cream that was drowned in hot espresso. Interesting flavors, but a little too bitter for our liking.
Keeping the reasonable prices and authenticity in mind, Jamie’s comes across as a pizzeria which targets all kinds of customers. Fresh ingredients and dough made from scratch everyday, their signature pasta is also made fresh and not procured from somewhere else. The menu and design is made in accordance with local ingredients. The walls are scribbled with drawings and paintings, giving the place a casual feel. Way to go!
