Some of you may have heard of the news that the restaurant empire of famed UK chef Jamie Oliver went into bankruptcy protection recently but fret not, the businesses that carry his name and branding, the two Jamie’s Italian’s outlets in Singapore are not affected because they are locally owned and operated under a franchise agreement.
In fact, the Jamie’s Italian’s outlets here have just launched an interesting afternoon promotion. For the fans of this two popular restaurants, the new Apertivo menu is priced at $10++ per plate and is available from 3pm to 7pm daily.
Some of the items available under the Apertivo Menu, each plate is at $10++
There are quite a few interesting small plates for this menu, which ranges from antipasti, crispy squid to truffle fries and Italian meatballs, Overall, we find these great tasting plates value for money.
Imagine a plate of truffle fries for only $10++ in this nice Italian restaurant environment? Many of the mass market fast food outlets already selling fries without truffles for half the price or more.
Our favourites is the Spicy Italian Meatballs because the 4 meatballs are huge and filling. We also like the Posh Chips which is the truffle fries and JL Slider which is a plate consisting of two mini-burgers.
Delicious and large spicy Italian Meatballs
JL Slider consists of two juicy mini-burgers
Posh Chips, which we called them truffle fries
Other than these small plates from the menu, there are cocktails available during the same timing daily. These includes the ever popular Singapore Sling and other cocktails which are priced similarly at $10++ per glass.
