Jamie’s Italian @Forum

昨日の夕食は、出かけることに。少し前に行って好印象だったフォーラムにある Jamie’s Italian に行って来ました。

Yesterday, we went out for dinner to Jamile’s Italian at Forum as we had a very good impression last time.

前菜は、リコッタチーズとローストトマトのブルスケッタをシェアー。リコッタチーズよりトマトが多い方が好みですが、味は良かったです。パンがもっとカリカリだと尚美味しいのですが。

For a starter, we shared Burschetta with ricotta cheese and roasted tomatoes.  We would have preferred with less ricotta cheese and more tomatoes but it tasted good.  If the bread is more crispy it would be nicer.  Jamie Oliver must love ricotta cheese, I see it a lot on his menu.

メインは夫もわたしもステーキ&フライ、コールスロー付き。ポテトはカリカリで全然油っぽくなくて美味しかったです。コールスローは、コールスローというよりもライム汁を使ったドレッシングのサラダという感じ。ステーキは写真を見てもわかるようにあまりにもぺらぺらで(厚さ2ミリ)完全に火が通っていてぱさぱさでした(涙)。半分も食べられず。凄く大きかったですが薄いので量的に多いわけではないと思いますが、パサパサですしソースもないので飽きました。

これだけ薄いと外側だけ焼くのは難しいと思います。大きさはもっと小さくて良いので、もう少し厚くスライスしてさっと炙ればもっと美味しいのに。。。

For the main, both my husband and I had Steak & Fries (with Coleslaw).  The fried potatoes were very nice – not greasy at all.  Coleslaw was more like a salad with lime dressing – my husband didn’t like it very much but I didn’t mind it.  The problem is the steak.  As you can see it was paper thin (2mm?) and completely overcooked and very dry.  I had about a half or less as I found it very boring and not easy to chew – just so dry and unpleasant.  If it had some sauce I might’ve been able to eat a little more but no sauce.  Just tasteless other than the herb.  Very disappointing.

When the meat is sliced so so thin, it’s hard not to overcook.  It should be a little thicker, then you can “flash-grill” (as their menu says) and keep it more tender and juicy.

前回のパスタの方がずっと美味しかったです。

The pasta I had last time was much much nicer.
