So, when I suggested that we go to a Jamie Oliver restaurant while we were in the U.K. last weekend, he was totally up for it.
I’ve been a fan of Jamie Oliver’s for a super long time now, and ever since he started catering his cooking style to an accessible, easy, home cooked style, I have really gotten into it.
I also, really agree with his ideas on how we should be feeding our children, about introducing them to new tastes, and giving them healthy food. I loved his food revolution shows (both the ones in the U.K. and U.S.), and learned so much from watching them.
Anyway, onto his restaurant…
It was BRILLIANT!
Loved it! Loved the food, loved the atmosphere, loved the service! And it wasn’t too expensive either!
Firstly, let me start by saying this, they know how to take care of people with dietary challenges- and we are such a family! I’m deathly allergic to fish, Seyfi has celiac disease, so there is no gluten, and none of us eat pork! We are not easy people!
But, the server handled it all, listened to everything, helped us choose, and made appropriate substitutions where necessary. We left there feeling great!
So here is what we ate:
This was Alara’s…
The polenta chips were to die for!!
(obviously Seyfi didn’t eat this one… Poor guy…)
Here is Alara enjoying hers…
I hope that if you are ever in the U.K. that you will take the opportunity to try out one of Jamie’s Italians. Totally worth every pence!
