Pik Nik @ heart of GeorgetOwn

 another new Cafe 'borned' in this lovely island ~ :)
PIK NIK started business on 22th Sept' 2011,
located at Nagore Road (same row as La Mei Zi, previous location of Sitigun)

afterall only i found out that this lovely cafe is run by my couple frens !
** envy to the max   @_@
at the same time, very happee happee for them !!!
big congRats !!!!

the place is cosy...
i always like colourful stuff...
colours make ppl happee ~~~  *weEeeee

foods menu is kinda limited at this stage..
since it's just 1 week old.. I believe they would have more and more in the future...
tho the varieties of foods are not more than 10...
but ALL ARE YUMMY !!

whereas beverage menu has room to improve...  hmmm...


the colourful wall with creative painting were hand drawn by my talented fren !!!!






they decorated every single corner of the shop...
painting, antique, diy stuff ~

 


MENU in creative ways to attract customer's attention...

 

I spotted kimmie fav ROBOT !!!

we were sitting at this cosy corner with glass door looking at the road at first !!!
there were normal dining tables and chairs in another side for proper dinner...
but I just like cushions, colourful, small tables and mini tools !
I don't mind to eat in improper manners...   hehe

later on we moved to a bigger space...
as ppl keep coming !
still maintain the cushion and mini tables + tools ! hehe

Freshly Squeeze Orange Juice (OJ), rm 6.00

Strawberry Smoothies, rm 9.00
I need to say that the smoothies is not rily smooth, it's more to Ice Blended Drinks...
Cappucino , rm 6.50

ah Kim's SALMON WAFFLE with Side Salads ,  rm 12

I super love it !!!
the squarish waffle tasted so nice, in term of taste, smell and texture - good
topped with scramble eggs, chopped bacon, and pieces of smoked salmon + black pepper and squeeze of mayo to enhance the tasty !
side salad - big piece of green, cheery tomatoes, piece of apple

the portion aint very big... might consider small for a guy.. but good for me !

Garlic Fried Rice with egg on top , rm 7
another delicious dish...
I love the garlic flakes like teppanyaki style...
the taste is good despite the rice a bit stiky on that day..



Salmon Roll with side salads , rm 14
Salmon slices, Aparagus and cheese stuffed inside the pastry
taste not strong but just good and tasted healthy ~
we love the pastry layer which is perfectly baked


Bolognese Cheese Baked (Chicken),  rm13
the tomato based sauce is delicious, overall a nice dish too !!

Beef Golash Cheese Baked, rm 13
this is bit so so for us...
it was the first time I tried Beef Golash... no idea how the taste should turn to be...
we felt a bit 'bitter' for the after taste...

Homemade Cheese Cake with Strawberry, rm 6
nice.. small piece - great choice for dessert after meal !

a day at MorningtOn, Melbourne

*blush*
it's time for me to blog about my Aussie trip after pending for few months...
was so occupied for the past mths...
busy with works... team building...
dearly grandma passed away  :'(
bestie wedding... and etc etc

this post is about the outing to Mornington on the 2nd day of my Melbourne trip backed in Apr~

a nice place to visit... bout an hour drive from Melbourne...
along the way, there are vineyard, beaches, sight seeing and etc...
always love there~  ^^


we dropped by somewhere to get some take aways coffees to kick start the day~

Eunice & Khai bring us to Montalto Vineyard for lunch...
it was my first time to there...
reckon the wines there are OK but Pizzas are awesome !
it was Sunday, thus kind of crowded.. gotta queue for tables ~
Khai invited some frens to join us for lunch too !
brought stewpig for some walk along the wineries...
too bad.. it's autumn... thus couldn't get to see the beautiful views of grapes everywhere~


very good weather...
sunny day + cold wind = beautiful !!







the beautiful blue sky just like a blue wallpaper !



me lub this pic !   :P











there is a restaurant, indoor, air-conditioned, more to Fine Dining in this vineyard...
we chose to have our lunch at The Piazza and Garden Cafe which serves yummilicious Pizzas~
sat at the wooden table dat nearer to the yard....
enjoy the cold wind under the sun~   ^^

we had Rose Wine and Riesling White Wine~
the Riesling is nice !


Salad as starter ~




Simple Salad with Rocket, Red Onion, Tomatoes, Balsamic Dressing
 



Soup of the day - Cauli Flower and Cream
ooo.. this is fantastic !! creamy yet wouldn't be too milky... smooth and nice !!!
 



Pizza ~ Lamb, potato, bacon & rosemary - $18
 

Pizza ~ Lamb, potato, bacon & rosemary - $18




Pizza ~  Smoked Salmon, onion, citrus mayonnaise & capers - $20
 


Pizza ~ Salami, mushroom, bocconcini & fresh rocket - $18






yum yum Tiramisu~


Homemade Chocolate Brownie with heaps of Peanuts, served with Cream
the cake itself tasted not bad but we all find it quite weird with the peanuts part...
wondering why they chose peanuts instead of walnut or macadamia... not for our liking !





cont our road trip~
Khai stopped by here.. where I got no idea where is it...
part of Mornington Peninsula of course...
came down for the cars, and had some chit-chat on the goodie weather ~
Aussie life is just so relaxing ~ expecially on a Easter Sunday~ hahaha




our ride throughout the trip~





Mornington Beach...
to snap some photos with the colourful tiny huts along the beach...
the nicest huts are actually all at Brighton Beach instead..
but we were bit lazy to drive there for picture...
the huts are mainly to keep the boat, or some ppl call it bathing boxes...














off to Sorrento next...

also my first time to here...
it has a pier with  many boats...
people came here for fishing, dolphin sea trips and etc...
we had a quick tour at Sorrento thus didn't know much bout here...
but definitely a nice place to visit....
click here for more info~







this pastries shop is famous with selling the BEST Vanilla Slices ...

they selling foods, sandwiches, varieties of pastries, and beverages...
but alot of ppl purposely travel there for their Vanilla Slice...



Vanilla Slice
it's filled with Vanilla Custard, usually has only top and bottom of pastry layer... The sweet is often dusted with icing sugar... we were kinda disappointed... as the slices did not impress us at all..
according to Eunice, it rily dídn't taste as nice as it used to be... found several pastries shops in city that served nicer slices...
don't mind to give it a second chance... could be caused of the busy weekend...
as after that day, I still see many frens visitting there for their slices...   :)



the sky was getting dark, and we off to Springvale for some Vietnamese foods as dinner.. which i gonna blog in other post~   :)
