What happens when a five-star chef opens a restaurant in the suburbs of Jaipur, serving top quality food with outstanding service, in an upscale environment at extremely reasonable prices? You get one of the best values money can buy, so if you are in Jaipur, or anywhere close for that matter, you MUST go to Jammie’s!
We were recommended Jammie’s by our host at Rampura Kothi, our guesthouse just a few blocks away. We entered early by Indian standards, about 6:45, because we were leaving very early the next morning for Goa and needed to pack and hit the rack. The restaurant was deserted except for several well-dressed staff standing around as the door was held open for us and we were seated.
Tablecloths, cloth napkins, nice cutlery, and a candle adorned the table and the room was warmly decorated in an upscale, modern design. The service impeccable, we had one of the six or so waiters at our table even if we only looked like we might need something. Our order was quickly taken and our first courses (appetizers) arrived after 15-20 minutes, rather quickly considering what we had ordered.
My wife had the Mushroom Quiche (325 rupees/$5.20), a short crust pastry filled with mushrooms and cheese topped with beaten eggs and cream and baked in the oven. It was remarkably big, probably six to seven inches in diameter, perfectly baked, with a crisp, thin crust and a light, savory filling that was not moist and not dry … perfection! I decided on the Croquettes de Pommes de Terre au Fromage (295 rupees/$4.75), potato croquettes stuffed with cheese, coated in breadcrumbs and fried, and served with a zesty house side salad. Again, they were perfectly cooked and delicious with six rather large croquettes and a salad that was small, but extremely tasty and spicy.
For our entrees, my wife had the Wild Mushroom Risotto (350 rupees/$5.65), fresh Shitake mushrooms and Arborio rice finished with dry white wine Parmesan cheese and I the Chicken Cordon Bleu (395 rupees/$6.40), marinated chicken breasts stuffed with ham and cheese, coated with bread crumbs, fried, and served with parsley potatoes and garden vegetables. The risotto was good with just the right consistency, but a tad on the bland side. Fortunately, it came with a small cup of grated parmigiano cheese, enhancing the flavor and experience. The cordon bleu came two on the plate and were, again, perfectly cooked with the outside crispy, not burnt, and the ham and cheese at the appropriate temperature on the inside. I would have preferred mashed potatoes, but the potatoes were well seasoned and delicious and the vegetables nicely steamed. I have to say I have not had a better chicken cordon bleu anywhere in the World, especially at that price.
Jammie stopped by the table after our meal to introduce himself and I complimented him on his fine restaurant, outstanding food, and amazing service, telling him that I would highly recommend Jammie’s to all of my readers, so …
CombatCritic Gives Jammie’s Kitchen A VERY RARE 10 Out Of 10 Bombs … BOMBS ARE GREAT!
Ten Bombs Equates To:
"Phonetic spelling of the acronym HUA, which stands for 'Heard Understood Acknowledged.' Originally used by the British in the late 1800's in Afghanistan. More recently adopted by the United States Army to indicate an affirmative or a pleased response." - Urban Dictionary
"The Department of Military Science and Leadership, University of Tennessee claim HOOAH 'refers to or means anything except no' ... Regardless of its meaning ... the term is an expression of high morale, confidence, motivation and spirit." - WarChronicle.com
"The U.S. Air Force stole 'HOOAH' from the Army because we were part of the Army until 1947 and rather than waste a bunch of time coming up with something new and unique, we said 'screw it, let's go with HOOAH' ... thanks Army ... HOOAH! - CombatCritic
