Hip Dining Space on Commercial Drive
JT picked Jamjar for dinner after we started our TGIF celebration at St. Augustine, which was a few minutes of walk away from Broadway Station. The ambience inside was warm and intimate , and I adored the cute little jam jars shelved on the wall in large wooden boxes. 4 of us were sharing the long wooden table with another party of 4 right in front of the open kitchen, where we could smell all sorts of exotic deliciousness. And their food just looked as rustic as their beautiful decors .
I started with their cocktail special, Pomegranate Margarita ($8.50), a stiff but flavourful drink. They do have a list of Middle-East inspired cocktails with unique ingredients.
The girls were sharing a Vegetarian Mezze Combo ($15) and the Soup of the Day ($5) that featured fresh veggies, olive oil, lemon juice. But they found lemon juice was a little overpowering in their dishes, order xanax online legally even in the soup.
However, R and I both enjoyed our dishes from the mains. The Ryash ($21) featured a tasty lamb chop lollipop that was cooked perfectly, but the bigger star was the lamb rice on the side bursting with flavours. And in the Samkeh Harrah ($20), the wild cod was moist and succulent, and the tahini sauce was rich and had a subtle nuttiness, enhanced with touches of pine nuts and cherry tomatoes. It was quite a luscious dish. I just loved how vibrant those dishes were.
