J & S, the initial to Jigger & Shaker.

J & S Chicken Nachos

Guacamole, Salsa, Jalapeno, Sour Cream, Chicken Bolognaise & Mozzarella.

This can be a great snack if you wanted something light for sharing. Great to pair with a cold glass of beer too. I enjoyed munching them.

Sausage Platter

3 types of Sausage (Lamb & Chicken) served with Roasted Roots and Chef’s specially made sauces.

Linguine alle Pescatore

Olive Oil Base Pasta cooked with Prawns, Shrimp, Squid, Mussels and Clams, cooked in White Wine.

Pasta was al-dente, not too dry, flavors were well executed too. Hence its one of my favorite dish that evening.

Home-Made Pizza, Gamberetti Pizza

Hand toss Pizza topped with Cream Sauce Base, Mozzarella Cheese, Cheddar Cheese, Fresh Shrimp and Broccoli topped with Sun-Dried Tomatoes.

Hands up if you are a thin crust lover. Pizza at Jigger & Shaker met the criteria of thin crust pizza.

Full concentration. The baristas were seen preparing our drinks.

Barista putting some final touch to our cocktail drink.

Varieties of drinks were served here. Be it alcoholic or non-alcoholic drinks. How knowledgeable are you into cocktails. It seems the House Cocktails are one of the specialty here.

Not any classic cocktails that we used to hear, but a twist in flavors and ingredients. At Jigger & Shaker, they served craft cocktails. Where element is handmade or tailored specifically to the drink. If you look at the menu, there’s a long list of cocktails. πŸ™‚

Love Story

Vodka, Watermelon liqueur, Passion fruit & Lime juice.

Dark Glass

Rum, Black tea, Kaffir Lime, Calamansi & Palm Sugar.

Bo-berries Carafe (serves 2-4 person)

Vodka, Strawberries, Blueberries, Mint leaves & Lime.

For non-alcoholic drink, they also served some unique milkshakes. Above is Kaya Milkshake with hint of pandan flavors.

After meal dessert is my favorite session, because I have a sweet tooth. Its undeniable that I love this piece of Apple Crumble Cheese Cake. Its so compact and gives us the different kind textures on every mouthful of this cake!

Matcha Chocolate Lava Cake with Green Tea Ice Cream

Chocolate lovers would love this. Ideal to be eaten immediately when its served warm. Check out the oozing rich and chocolatey, chocolate lava.

Worried about getting bored? Fret not. Live band from Art Trio Acoustic Band will keep you entertained on weekends (Friday – Sunday) from 8pm-12am.

I was told that this is the Valentine’s Day set menu. Sounds delicious. Since they are trying to maintain the food quality, thus it is only limited to 20 couples.

Chef Sam, being the main chef, also an important person behind the kitchen, is serious in his culinary skills ensuring the quality of food. It was a pleasure to meet the person who put much effort in serving us the food.

Lunch @Italiannies, The Gardens Mall

My latest meet up with my girlfriends was lunch at Italiannies, The Gardens Mall. It has been a long time since the last time I dine in Italiannies. I had a good experience with the food and service at Italiannies, Sunway Pyramid back then.

Italiannies, The Gardens has relocate to this new location. One floor below the previous location. Pretty spacious.

Nic and I arrived first. So, we decided to get a seat while we wait for Ash & Yi to come. While waiting, we were served with these complimentary bread. Next to it is a plate filled with olive oil and balsamic vinegar.

This is currently new on their menu. 7 wonders of pizza. Upon ordering pizza from this menu, you can add on drink (mountain dew pitch black) or dessert (panna cotta) at a cheaper price.

We chose Barbeque Smoked Duck Pizza (RM35.90)

Smoked duck breast with a barbeque base, topped with peaches, onions, chili flakes, mozzarella cheese & arugula.

Thin and crispy crust. I like the smoked duck breast. But I thought the topping could be a lil extra. Don’t you think the topping is too sikit?

Quattro Platter (RM37.90)

A combination of risotto balls, calamari, fried lemon cheesy balls and zucchini strings. Complete with Marinara sauce and Alfredo sauce for dipping.

This was served as ‘starters’. Quattro Platter is ideal for sharing. I like everything that was served on this plate. Except for fried lemon cheesy balls. I find that the cheese taste was too strong. May be because I’m not really a cheese person πŸ˜€

Classic Carbonara (RM37.90) Regular

Fettuccine pasta tossed in Parmesan cream sauce with smoked beef bacon chicken and fresh button mushroom.

The al-dente Carbonara Fettucine was nice and not too cloying. However we were quite surprise that a popular Italian restaurant uses ready made pastas that we could easily purchase in boxes from the supermarket instead of doing from scratch. Is this a common practice in other Italian restaurants too?

Nic kept her promise and brought us her homemade kimchi. It was very nice. I had almost half of it. hahaha…. *janji ditepati*! TQ Nic πŸ™‚

Ash on the other hand also planned to bring some muffins. Unfortunately, she said the result of her muffins were not pretty. So, she decided not to bring. Its okay….. we can still sample them in future rite? hehe….

Overall : The food was not bad. Unfortunately the service was quite bad. In terms of when we asked for a glass of plain water, we gotto ask again and again from different person because its like so difficult to serve a glass of water. When came to bill…. we were told dunno what system was down. So, they gotto do manual calculation, via calculator. Calculate the wrong amount for us! Aduhhh….

Let’s not ruin the day with some petty stuffs. Our group photo together with our ‘big boss’ Abel jai! LOL!

We saw benefit was having a roadshow and there was a nice pastel color backdrop. We thought it would be nice to use as the background for our group photo. Unfortunately we couldn’t ‘catch’ anyone to take photo for us. So, we ended up cam-whoring ourselves. LOL!

4 siao char bo having cam-whore!! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€
