Pick n' Brew, Glenmarie Shah Alam

Since Jackson's been running Pick n' Brew in Shah Alam, I've made several visits to that place, with flogger friends, non blogger friends and family. As a matter of fact, I've had breakfast, lunch and dinner there! I've actually enjoyed my meals here.....and am probably the last of the lot to post about the meals with the floggers. Much has been written about this place and I guess since my meals here were mostly with them, I won't have to say much and I'll just link their blogs! hahaha.....Please note, I didn't eat all these food in one sitting and neither did I eat all of these in several sittings. I have personally tried the American Breakfast, Lamb Tikka and the Gold Medalion Of Beef, desserts and lovely coffee!

DINNER

Salmon Gravlax with Scallion Cream & Parmesan Tuille
I gave my appetizer to Teckiee, she seemed to enjoy the Salmon Gravlax (cured with salt, pepper and dill) with Scallion Cream and Parmesan Tuille.
Lamb Tikka with Rice Pilaf
Jason loved his Lamb Tikka with Pilaf Rice (RM17/USD5), the marinated spice lamb pieces were so flavourful. I should know as I had this for lunch on another occasion.
Grilled Medalion Of Beef
My Grilled Medallion Of Beef, with infused oil and coffee bean mustard (RM35/USD11). The beef was tender and loved the gravy and the coffee bean mustard!
Herb Crusted Rack Of Lamb
Precious Pea's Herb Crusted Rack Of Lamb with apple mint yoghurt (RM33)/USD10)
Chicken Chimicangas
Splashie Boy gave two thumbs up to his Chicken Chimichanga (RM19/USD6) , deep fried tortilla stuffed with diced chicken and tomatoes.
Angel Hair Marinara
Jackson's Angel Hair Marinara (RM22/USD7), served with prawns, green mussels and squid
Seafood Galore
Both Boolicious and Lyrical Lemongrass had this which was on the special menu at that time, Seafood Galore On Feta Spinach (RM40/USD13), which also includes a glass of Lorina Sparkling Juice). This was spinach baked mussels, prawn thermidor, grilled fish - finished off with olive oil and sun-dried tomatoes.
Latte Art
Jackson's Latte Art Masterpiece
Pick n' Brew Coffee
Our latte art masterpieces - we give a new meaning to the words "Art Attack"! Hahaha...
(From Bottom Left to Right : Precious Pea's, Teckiee's unfinished art, Lyrical Lemongrass', Teckiee's finished latte art, and yours truly poor attempt of Jackson's masterpiece).

Read Jason's, Teckiee's (we celebrated her birthday here) and Precious Pea's take on dinner and XLB's coffee break with me. Simon also had lunch here with his friend's girlfriend!

Pick n' Brew
I miss the lovely rose bud tea! Not available on the menu, it was a special item on one of the days we were there. Hope it will be a regular item soon.

Pick n' Brew will be opening its second outlet in 1 Utama, F233 1st Floor Promenade (above SOHO) on Mar 30, this Sunday.
