Lunch @ Jimmy’s Kitchen, Central

This is the second time I have been to Jimmy’s. The first time was with work, and as I am still not comfortable taking out my camera during business lunches, I thought I would go again with some friends, this time, camera in hand!

Apparently, Jimmy’s Kitchen Central has been serving international food since 1928. The menu offers a wide range of international dishes ranging from bangers and mash, to Chinese / Indonesian fried rice to Indian curries. They also have 2 specialty dishes each day which was a bonus and made it easier to choose.

It was a Tuesday when we went, so the specialties for the day were either suckling roast pork with apple puree or fish and chips. I LOVE pork and could not go pass the suckling roast pork. It was served with gravy, boiled vegetables, roast potato and a mountain of onions which was below the pork. The pork was tender and succulent, with a slither of fat and was deliciously scrumptious! The apple puree was a great compliment. I devoured this and enjoyed every single bite! I do miss a good roast pork and this definitely hit the right spots.

R, J, and S ordered the fish and chips. I had some of this and I have to say, it wasn’t too bad. It’s hard to find good fish and chips! The batter was quite thin, and fish fresh. It was a generous serving of fish, and chips were crunchy.

Unfortunately R and J had to go back to work. However, S and I wanted coffee and were both craving something sweet, so went to Joel Robuchon for a sugar fix. I got the blueberry cheese cake. It was creamy, smooth and sweet! Just what I needed.

S had the chocolate tart which I didn’t take a photo off and it was a LOT better than the cheese cake! It was chocolaty with a hint of bitterness. It was a good way to spend the afternoon, catching up with S and his recent trip to New York – made me realise how much I miss the place and a visit is definitely in order!

It’s always a pleasure catching up with J, R and S, pity they couldn’t join us at Robuchon for some sweets and gossip! There’s always next time right?
