About Me

Food is one of my many joys in life. It is a common bond I share among my friends and family. Combining food and travel makes it all the more interesting. I enjoy going out for a good meal with friends and family. The array of various cuisines and our fantastic array of produce really makes Sydney such a great city to live in. Blogging is my hobby and my posts on restaurant meals I have had are paid for and not gratis. Any gratis provided to me will always be stated beforehand.

Last Night in Rome

It was my last night in Rome before I head off to Cagliari (Sardinia) in the morning. So NR and I met for dinner to say our goodbyes and catch up on what we have individually been doing for the past 2 days.

The restaurant we decided to go to was only open for dinner from 8.30 pm. We decided to give that one a miss as I had a 5.30 am airport shuttle pick up the next morning and didn't want to have too late a night.

So we headed to Campo dei Fiori, and randomly chose one of the many restaurants located in the square. After looking at a few menus, we chose a restaurant called Jamm Ja. For entree we both had the Tomato Bruschetta and for mains I had one of the specials. It was home made pasta with cherry tomatoes, sea bass, clams and mussels. It looked like it was baked and tasted quite nice (once the waiter removed the foil and deboned it for me).

NR had the Calamarata Jamm Ja style home made pasta with sea bass, clams and pecorino cheese. NR's verdict of her pasta was it was delicious!

So we were happy with our choice of restaurant, even though it was located smack in the middle of a popular tourist area. The waiter attending us was very charming and quite jovial.

NR heads off to Naples and eventually Capri and Germany and I head off for my gourmet tour of Sardinia and Corsica. We have decided to keep in touch and to touch base when we both return to Australia so we can swap our holiday stories!

So for now, goodbye NR! See you in Australia and happy holidays till I see you back Down Under.

As I was walking back to my hotel, I could see at a distance the St Peter's Dome lit up. It was quite picturesque, so here is my last photo image of Rome in the night.
