Meet the friendly-chef himself, Nik Michael Imran

Good job, Nik! Your food's awesome!

"How's the food? Okay tak?", asked by the chef. LOL!

So I went out with Mommy and Sissy, last Sunday. I was supposed to send Sissy's car to the service center then things happened and Mommy said, "Jom pergi Publika? We go brunch then grocery-shopping at BIG." So I drove them to Solaris Dutamas, and always wanted to try this new restaurant that has been launched about 7 weeks ago (I think), and dragged them loves to "Picknik". We went a bit early that morning and Nik and his crews were busy setting up the restaurant (Opens at 11am, yalls!).

So the first thing I noticed when I entered the restaurant was the bar/the kitchen. I love the concept of open kitchen that provides the customers with a full-view of the food preparation and we can finally have our meal without any doubt how's the kitchen looks like. LOL! No no, don't worry, Picknik's kitchen is squeaky-clean and you can see the chef's masterpiece and the whole crew and they will served the food, freshly in your plate. Yay!

We took plenty of time to decide on what to eat since there are too many scrumptious-meals' names on the menu! You can see yourself from the picture I captured (scroll up), various choices of Pasta, Salads, Soups, Mains, Tapas and even plenty choices of tea and coffee, juice and yes, desserts as well!

As you can see, I ordered 5 different meals. Since I had my brunch here, so I ate something that can soothe my tummy since it was still morning. We had 'Caesar Salad with Beef Bacon', I fell in love with the dressings and the fresh, crunchy salad and the bacon is well-cooked. The mixture of hot bacon and cold salads just makes it, perfect. So refreshing especially when you have it, in the morning? For the 'Cream of Mushroom with Garlic Bread', I really thought that the mushroom cream soup would be thick but it turned out to be so smooth and very creamy, down your throat. Phew. And I had the 'Baked Salmon Sandwich' for my main course, I LOVE THE SALMON. Fullstop. The taste is just so right, well-mixed in my mouth. Okay, now I am craving for it, badly! Mommy and Sissy both had the pasta. I tasted it, of course. It was so good and how I wish that the portion would be much bigger to fill the hungriness in my tummy! Loved the Breakfast Tea, and Cranberry Juice. Perfect to start our Sunday morning :)

The customer service is good, waiters are very alert and friendly and the sous-chefs are superbly friendly. One of the chef was so friendly, she can even chit-chatting with me while she was busy in the kitchen. And the main chef himself is friendly too! I asked Nik, can I take pictures for my blog thingy and he said, "Oh really? Satu picture, costs 100 bucks tau. *insert serious face here*" Hahah! Great chef with a great sense of humour ah you, Nik! :D

I am pretty sure to come back here in the future to try out the desserts pula *wink* All the best and keep up the awesome work you have there! *\o/*

You can be as lucky as I am too to taste the delicious food and just find it here in Picknik!
