After lunch at The Sweet Spot with K and T, I met the boy at Wynyard to go to Jamie's Italian! I have heard mixed reviews about this place so I didn't really have high expectations and wanted to see what all the fuss was all about for myself. Even though I had decided to save stomach space for some Italiano food and I only had a small bit of cake, it is still rich and calorie dense all the same so what a decadent day I had indeed!
Even arriving early at 5pm, we were told there was a 10 minute wait before we would be able to be seated. We were given a buzzer and watched them make fresh pasta while we waited. Look at all those different types of pasta they have!
True to their word, we waited around 10 minutes before we were lead upstairs to seats next to the balcony. It definitely was nice being able to see what was happening down below!
Our lovely waitress Lauren told us the house specials of the night and both of us decided to start off with an aromatic lime soda ($4.10). I really had been set on the strawberry and elderflower soda but it was sold out, how disappointing. The lime soda was a nice replacement with it's tart citrus flavour making it a refreshing drink.

|Truffle Tagliatelle, $14.50/$24.00|
Jamie's Italian was better than I expected and I really did enjoy all the pasta. To be honest though, I really did go in not expecting fantastic food so that also might contribute to why I was pleasantly surprised.
We ended up at Moochi inside Westfield Sydney (I love my frozen yogurt - could you not tell?) where we got biscotti and pomegranate froyo with, you guessed it, mochi. I think the mochi and biscotti froyo is better at Noggi. The pomegranate flavour tasted just like forest berries though! So this part trumps Noggi. But my loyalty has to lie with Noggi I'm afraid (:
To end the wonderful day, the boy bought me a box of Ferrero Rocher! What a sweetie.
Happy weekend everybody!
