On Monday I went along to a brand new restaurant and bar soon to be open in Blackfriars in London. The restaurant invited a group bloggers along for the night to test out their new food and drinks menu and to play some fun games.
Firstly, let me introduce you to Jamboree. Jamboree Foodfest & Bar celebrates flavours from around the world. My favourite thing about the menu, is that they match a beer or cocktail with each main course. If you fancy a 'Raging Bull' (juicy Argentinian beef) then there is a cocktail which goes perfectly with it- The Matador- a spicy rum sensation! Or if you prefer the 'Maryland' (an America-style crab burger) then the Blue Moon beer with a hint of sweet citrus, is the perfect combination!
We began the evening with a delicious starter of crispy calamari, Goan fishcakes and handmade falafel. These were all delicious, especially the calamari which I am a complete sucker for! We then chose our main courses. I went for the 'Raging Bull' as you just can't beat a bit of Argentinian beef! Although the burger was a little overcooked for my liking, the overall flavours were sensational as it came with sweet chillies on top and a yummy sauce. Before desert we were then invited over the bar to see one of the cocktail mixologists put on a great show for us. He was spinning, throwing and balancing bottles all over the shop! After one too many cocktails, we then headed back to the table for desert- a selection of brownies and passionfruit panna cotta!
Overall, I had a great evening at Jamboree and it is a really fun place to go for dinner with friends during the week, or if you are looking for a little bit more of a party on the weekend!
And now for the exciting part.... I have 2 tickets to give away to you guys for the official launch party of Jamboree Foodfest and Bar next Wednesday (25th November). If you want to go along and try the food and cocktails for yourself then all you have to do is follow and retweet my photo on twitter and I will pick 2 winners at random (each person can bring a guest) on Monday. The event is from 6-9pm at Jamboree Blackfriars and there will be live music, free food and drinks and good vibes!
