Picknik is a nice place of meal is nothing much from Nik Michael Imran who is he affable chef who embarked with his first restaurant recently. The chef himself had followed the father’s footsteps and embarking his career in the F&B industry. The restaurant is nothing to fancy about as the place is indeed a great place for a decent lovely meals with family and friends. The restaurant is bringing a great tagline where they provide comfort food. The restaurant open their kitchen and plates to comfort with their customers.
We started our meal with the Stracciatella where the soup is being served with the Itallian chicken consomme infused with Parmesan, croutons, parsley, and egg white ribbons. A bona fide rarity in KL. The soup is very appetizing with the smooth texture. The soup is simply soothing and it is also sinfully good which I love to get the second bowl. The soup is well flavoured which is a big kudos for it.

Next we had the salad which is the Watercress and Pear with Nuts . The delights is well prepared with the fresh peppery watercress tattered with sweet pears, strawberries and almond flakes in the Nik family’s honey mustard special dressing. I am being not a fans of salad had also fall in love in the dish as well. This is where the combination of the salad is well match to each other where the strawberry which is being served in the salad gives a light soury and this had enhanced our appetite to the next dish. Aside, the chef added with the crushed almond in to it which giving a crispy and crunchy bites of it which is well mix together with their home made honey mustard sauce. With this, it had enhanced the whole taste of the salad which provides a delighting and savory salad.

When I see Spaghetti Aglio Olio, it is definite to be in my list. The spaghetti Aglio which is directly translated as garlic and oil, but with a kick from chili flakes is not to be missed.
