Pick n' Brew Opening @ 1 Utama

On 30th of March 2008, Pick n' Brew open it's second outlet in 1 Utama. Yeah! Nearer to home. Don't have to go all the way to Glenmarie, Shah Alam already. Jackson SMSed me telling me about the RM 2 Irish Cream Coffee with free muffin promotion. Too bad I tuned my bio clock to wake up late afternoon. I only reached there around 3.30 p.m.

I went in and say hi to Jackson, and he told me that they all here already. ??? Who? "The food bloggers (floggers)", Jackson said. He then brought me to a table within a circular hanging beads.

The floggers inside the secret meeting place.

Finally, I get to meet some of the floggers in my Gluttony list. I was introduced to Ekeng, Jason, Teckie, Serene, Dwayne, Jasmine, Mr. B and WMW whom was sitting with her friends at another table came over to chat with the floggers. Nice meeting you guys. They're a group of fun people that loves food. Me like food too.

I later read in Nipples Joe's blog and found that he was there too but he didn't stay to have food because he already had Bah Kut Teh. So didn't get to meet him in person. Maybe next time.

After the introductions, I sat down and they're still taking turns taking photos of the food that's arrived. The bread with olive oil and balsamic vinegar were on the table, so I helped myself to a piece while they were busy taking photos. The bottle that holds the olive oil and vinegar is 2-in-1, one side opening is for the olive oil and the other opening is for the vinegar.

After that the gang passed their food to me for me to take photos, I'm quite reluctant la because the food is getting cold and they're all hungry already (first time eating with a group of floggers will make you feel like this I think because if eating with non-floggers they don't care whether you took your photos or not). So, I quickly take shots of the food.

Mr. B's Chicken Pesto Spaghetti

Jasmine's Caesar Salad

CelineSerene's Penne Carbonara

Dwayne's Grenobloise Salmon Fillet

WMW brought over her coffee by the pot for us to shoot

My Caffe Latte

My Spanish Prawn & Avocado Salad

RM 2 Irish Cream only on Opening Day

Strawberry Cheesecake ordered by Winnie

Jasmine and Mr. B have to leave early due to working commitment. Mr. B left most of his spaghetti untouched and was later sapu by me. It was good. The spaghetti is flavoured with herb and not too salty. For those that like herb and spices in their food, this is a must try.

Rating: 3.5/5

As for my Spanish Prawn & Avocado salad also not bad. Pick n' Brew is very generous by using middle size prawn which is fresh and give large slices of avocado which is ripen just right. Avocado fan here, give me more avocados. Another must have here.

Rating: 3.5/5

Since I didn't have a chance to taste the other food, so you must go to the other floggers blog to get their view on this.

Dwayne working his shot on the muffin. You may noticed that both CelineSerene and Dwayne have the same link, this is because they both update the same blog. CelineSerene is the writer and Dwayne is the photographer. Actually there are a few food blogs that are manage by couples such as Kampung Boy & City Girl, SugarBean, Less Than Ten and Brought up 2Share. By the way, Jackson gave each of us a free muffin to take away. Thanks Jackson, the muffin is very yummy.

Smart and handsome Jackson managing the counter

The makan gang's flower bouquet to congratulate the opening. Oops, sorry I came empty handed.
