Despite dining at Pick n’ Brew numerous times, the place has never failed to impress me with its cozy dining ambiance and an admirable range of Italian and Asian cuisines. With such an attractive atmosphere and food fare, one would never expect to find such a fine restaurant situated in the sprawling industrial zone of Hicom Glenmarie. Indeed, Pick n’ Brew is located at the left wing of the CNI (a multi-level marketing company) building which is another surprising factor for me.
Apart from the food which I will talk about later, Pick n’ Brew serves Graffiti Latte (RM 10) which is a cup of coffee with hand-drawn patterns on the foam.
Apparently, Graffiti Latte has been around for decades. What started from pouring simple pattern on the foam has evolved into a work of art in every drink. The Graffiti Latte comes with two pieces of Biscotti that can be dipped into the coffee.
While RM 10 is expensive for a cup of coffee, the opportunity to witness something as unique as this is really worth paying for. It was a good cup of coffee and the artful design certainly was a bonus to me.
Food at Pick n’ Brew is certainly not cheap but for what it is worth, the food presentation and taste makes up for it. First up is the Crispy Skin Seabass (RM 30).
According to the menu, the seabass is cooked with asparagus, mixed vegetables and tomato salsa sauce. Preparing this dish does require a fine balance between cooking the skin till it is crispy without over drying the fillet meat.
The salsa sauce has a light taste to it and complimented the fish well without overpowering the taste of the fillet.
The Grenobloise Salmon Fillet (RM 28) which was complimented with potatoes, lemon butter and spinach cream was equally good.
Pick n’ Brew is certainly a good choice for food (and coffee). Despite its unconventional location, the cozy ambiance and great food were more than enough for me to take a slightly longer drive to dine there.
