Value Set Lunch @ Pick n' Brew, 1 Utama Shopping Centre, Petaling Jaya

baked oysters
ooooooohhhhhhhhh, oysters

Last weekend, since we were at 1 Utama to check out food sanitizers (yes! you can clean your food up), we decided to dine at Pick n Brew. It was good to catch up with Jackson, since I have not met up with him for some time.

The restaurant is running a few promotions at the moment, one which was the executive set lunch for RM28++. You get a choice of appetizers - baked fresh oyster or soup of the day. For the main course, you may select from: Mediterranean oven baked chicken with roasted vegetables and polenta or, poached dory with boiled potatoes and vegetables in cream sauce or, roast beef with spinach gnocchi and chunky garlic basil tomato or, gratinate salmon on cream pasta. At the end of that fulfiling meal, you have a choice of tea or coffee. Available from 12 noon to 3pm daily, it is a great deal and also available at their Glenmarie, Shah Alam outlet until end of this month.

We both decided to try the set lunch and the food was good. I loved my 2 baked oysters topped with spinach and a bit of cream and placed on rock salt. Splashie Boy's soup of the day was a rich mushroom soup, which he finished before I could even ask to sample any. Just make sure you don't touch your oysters on the rock salt though, or it will be too salty.

roast beef
my fav dish of the day - tender juicy roast beef with spinach gnocchi and chunky tomato sauce

Splashie Boy went for the roast beef since he loves anything that moos. Very tender and juicy - I could see the juices coming out from the slices placed on top of the spinach gnocchi. For those who are wondering what is gnocchi, it is made from potatoes so think of it like mashed potatoes mixed with flour and spinach but shaped in small pieces. Nice combination of flavours with the rich chunky tomato sauce, I felt.

My pasta dish was huge - I got a mountain of angelhair pasta that I had trouble finishing. Perfect for those who love cream, but it can get a bit rich tasting at the end. The salmon was slightly overcooked, as it had a grilled cheese topping but overall, a nice dish.

Pick n Brew is also running a Pick and Win contest until 15 July. You get to win - free beverage for the year or minimum RM10 from your bill. We didn't get to win the grand prize but did score RM10 off from the final bill. Do check it out, who knows you may be the lucky winner. They also have a set dinner available but I didn't get the details. If you want to know more, just give them a buzz.
