The Lovely Ann Huynh organized a Girl's Picnic Lunch at Gazebo, the label of 'Girl's Picnic' sounded delightful, so into my diary it went :)
From the checkered style table cloth, to the naturally lit areas, to the roses strung along the table, and the beautiful basket of bread that came shortly after our arrival, it really did feel like a picnic in the park (minus insects & bugs!)
Anita & I were a tad bit late (i'm horrible with getting around in the city) but as soon as we sat we were given our bubblies and the bread & dips came out.
freshly baked, hot & extra crunchy baguettes
sun-dried tomato dip, beetroot dip & mixed olives
Glasses were topped quietly (i didnt even notice them filling mine up, just kept wondering why mine always seemed full hehe)
The dips were chunky, and flavorsome, so nice that i just couldn't stop eating really (and i also ordered another bread stick later on... hehe)
Like seriously, i kept eating & eating the bread, nevermind there was still food to come but i just kept eating. No wonder i couldn't eat much of the food that was to follow..
potato salad, pumpkin salad, bocconcini & button mushrooms
Everything was served cold, and each three-tiered stand was between four people. There was nothing too spectacular about the mixed mushroom, potato & pumpkin dish, but i mopped up my plate with the extra bread that we got!
soft shell crab, smoked salmon, scallop stick & chicken breast
Cold meats, i didn't try any of these meats, and again, they didn't look too great. By now i was wondering (is this all worth $35?)
Now desert, was served along with the salads & meats, i would of liked to anticipate desert a lil more, instead of having it in front of me while still the main foods.
Though the brownie, i think i ate more than my fair share cos it was really light, chocolaty, and surprisingly not as stale as it looked.
I love how the place had heaps of natural light shining in, although drinking in the sun took abit out of us girls :) Nonetheless, i had a great time chatting & catching up. I wouldnt exactly come back here for the picnic food, but i'd like to try out the lunch menu (and will get to for Anita's birthday lunch!! Coming up in August, so keep an eye out for that review)
