When you think of lunch in the city, you'd usually think overpriced fancy sit-down meals or $10 food court combos or sushi boxes. It's tricky finding a good in-between, especially one that hits the mark on both value and quality. If you choose to attempt squeezing a nice meal into your lunch hour (travel/walking/queueing time included), don't even get me started on the waiting, the ordering, the watch-checking, more waiting, the hurried eating and power walking back to the office.
Well, Sydney kids. Let a sister help you out here. I had the privilege of dropping in at Jamie's Italian to try out their brand new Super Lunch menu, and honestly guys, they have your CBD work lunch situation all figured out.

Jamie's Super Lunch Menu was created with us busy folk in mind. Everything on the menu is designed for fast prep with no compromise on the quality of produce and ingredients. We opted for the 3 course lunch for $30 (yes, $30 for three Jamie's Italian dishes. Amazing.) Service was really quick and it didn't take us long to demolish everything either! I'll let the photos speak for themselves, but I did have a few favourites!

For starters, we had the Arancini, Crispy Squid and Truffle Tagliatelle. The Truffle Tagliatelle was the absolute star dish for me; smooth, buttery and full of real truffle goodness - Given the option, I could totally have gone for another serve as my main...
You simply can't go to Jamie's and not load up on pasta, so we ordered the classic Bolognese and Pumpkin Ravioli. There are bits of crushed amaretti throughout the ravioli so you get surprise bursts of sweetness and nuttiness to complement the pumpkin. My personal pick between the two was the spag bol - you guys know I'm a sucker for classics and this meat sauce was just delicious.
We finished off nice and sweet with one of each dessert option - the Panna Cotta (my favourite of the lot), Orange Blossom Polenta Cake, Chocolate Brownie and Ice-Cream Trio.

By the time we were done, an hour was up and I was rolling out the door and into a food coma.
Back to an afternoon of productive work? Pshhh, oh please. ;)

Thank you, Jamie's Italian! I will most definitely be back.
P.S. Could I please have a Truffle Tagliatelle in a super main size? Please?
