Pick n' Brew @ 1 Utama 030808

went to 1 Utama for dinner tonight..s usual tried something new...went to Pick n' Brew..I went there b4 for food tasting wit my boss n colleague..tis time I went wit Vince..the environment is cosy actually...soft music...neutral's got a big window where u can see LDP highway...also have a smoking room...the view is nice...can't wait to sit in the waiting room when it's raining...i'm sure it would b nice..hahaokie..lets go to the food part..hahaha..for drinks Vince ordered the Iced Fruit Tea & I ordered the Hazelnut Latte

iced tea @ RM8.00
Hazelnut Latte @ RM8.00

there was this ornament on the i can't call it ornament or maybe test tube thingy..watever le..haha..they fill it wit olive oil &'s actually used to serve some form of appetizer where they gv bread baked wit some herbs and u dip the bread into the mixture of olive oil & vinegar...they din serve us tat..dunno y...but the 1st time i went they served us tat...
We ordered a Mushroom soup & smoked salmon on brioche for starters...the mushroom soup is quite bland so we added some pepper to it...but the smoked salmon on brioche taste good...
Cream of Mushroom @ RM13.00
Smoked Salmon on Brioche @ RM17.00 (Sorry..forgot to take the pic..share the salmon pic wit u guys le...Haha..*shy*)

The smoked salmon on brioche taste good. It's served with egg, some sort of vege, smoken salmon, cherry tomatoes & the brioche...For main course, I ordered the Penne Carbonara while Vince ordered the Braised Lamb ShankBraised Lamb Shank @ RM38.00 (Served with Mashed Potato, 3 strands of Asparagus & 4 Biji Brussel Sprouts)
Penne Carbonara @ RM18.00 (Served with Bacon & Additional Cheese Powder)

The lamb shank doesn't taste very good s compared to the shank at Las Carrestas...the meat texture is very harsh and dry...

We din manage to finish the food...the Penne Carbonara was too salty...probably too much salt and the bacons are salty at the first place...
we din finish our food....drinks i finished mine but Vince dun like his drink so he only had half a cup..the coffee is quite nice i gulped every drop of it..hahahaha

The total bill came to RM112.20....not as good s expected..perhaps cos i ordered the wrong things....but there's this salmon dish i tried during my first visit which tasted good...tats all for now...till i hv budget for more food..hahaha
