Picnic Brunch

Picture from

After dropping off and picking up our dry cleaning on Sunday mornings, we usually go to Krakatoa for brunch but I'm a bit sick of people staring at me for ordering my lemongrass chicken with rice, or my nasi lemak.... Yes it is oily but when it's on the brunch menu, they make poached eggs and bacon look bland. Anyways, enough is enough... I want to enjoy my brunch where the people are more open minded. So last Sunday, we headed over the road to Picnic for brunch and I was nearly brought to tears by the contrast ...(Hubby wrote: "Bit of an exaggeration don't you think?") .

Everything was healthy no doubt, but there were so many things on the menu, you already start planning your next trip when you're looking through it. After I ordered my eggs florentine, and my husband ordered the breakfast with the lot. I started looking around and thought damn, I should have ordered the lovely glass of fresh organic orange juice that the people sitting next to us were having, instead of my boring skinny hot chocolate. People at picnic were groovy, young and old, optimistically dressed for a wonderful new day. My eggs florentine wasn't too creamy nor too salty... and muffins toasted just enough to be crunchy yet fluffy. My hot chocolate came and my frown turned to a grin when I tasted real chocolate... yum! Would have liked it stronger, next time.
