I will put my hands up and say I would never of taken the kids anywhere near Jamie's Italian. Even though Jamie is a family man, I still would of avoided it like the plague. My kids are quite plain, so anything extra or fancy has left them not eating it and a total waste. Me and Raiden was at an event in town in the morning, so we doubled up and went to review the bullring restaurant for their new super lunchtime menu too. From 1–23 April, your little ones can eat for free at Jamie's Italian. For every main course you order, one of your children can enjoy a meal, on them. They can choose from all six award-winning dishes from our kids' menu – complete with our much-loved "shake-me" salads, a drink and a dessert – on the house!
The Super Lunch menu at Jamie’s Italian in Birmingham, runs from Monday – Friday 12-6pm and is £11.95 for two courses or three courses for just £13.95!
So you all know I'm currently doing slimming world, that went out the window as I went for the Gennaro's Chicjen Club. I really just fancied a burger, it been so long since I sank my teeth In to a tasty chicken burger. The Brioche stuffed with chargrilled, marinated free-range chicken, crispy pancetta, spicy ‘nduja mayo, fontal cheese, tomato & rocket. With a seasonal green side, which was cabbage. ( so some speed food was included). The burger comes on it own do you can add a side if fries etc if you wanted to. The burger was delicious and I would recommend it.
For pudding I went for the Lemon Sorbet. I've got to admit it was this or the chocolate brownie, but the Refreshing lemon sorbet topped with lemon zest & fresh mint. It was actually so delicious and I'm glad I went for this instead.
I was blown away by the kids menu, I loved the classic dishes with a twist.
Raiden went for the Lower Hurst Farm beef meatballs with Jamie’s organic seven-veg tomato sauce, there homemade spaghetti & a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese. He was a bit dubious when it came as to be totally honest I don't go for presentation skills when I'm at home, so it was slightly different to what he was expecting. He ate the lot and said it was delicious.
The main meals come with a shake-me salad in a jar, which is such a great idea too.
Then for pudding a jumbo scoop ( or two) of vanilla ice cream served with an Italian cookie & chocolate sauce.
By the time we had finished up, and a had pot of mint tea. The restaurant has filled up with so many families and children from young ages to teens. I think we will definitely consider Jamie's Italian in the future when we fancy some food when we are up the town centre.
