Back in Singapore days, we love to go out in big group. The more the merrier! More over when i go out with my Indonesian friends. We dont just go in big groups; We tend to stay quite a while after our meals and talk like there’s no tomorrow. haha..
Since we already know our so called ‘bad habit’. Normally we gonna squeeze our mind to just find a proper place to eat and hangout at the same time. And it is very tiring sometimes, since not so many places can fit 10-15 people in one go, at the same table. So, if your circle has the same habit like ours. Guess PICNIC can be one of your option for your next gathering.
PICNIC is like an international food-court with a beautiful decorated picnic-ky garden theme. Indeed, a very unique idea that makes many people want to give them a visit.
PICNIC itself has more than 10 seasonal and thematic stalls in foodtrucks to choose from. Ranging from Korean food, Japanese, Western, to Italian and French food. They have fancy drink stalls and dessert stalls too!
Food price ranging from SGD 15-20 per meal. A little bit pricy for a ‘food court style’ of food. But since this place is in Orchard, and they have comfortable ambiance as well, so i think this price is already an average.
If you have been to Marche, PICNIC also has quite the same system of payment. The difference is, you have to do it yourself in PICNIC. So, they have a huge touch-screen menu in every stall, where you can view the food and order it at the same time. and after you ordered it, the ‘beeper machine’ will buzz and ask you to collect your meals. Payment also can be settled by ourselves as well if we are using NETS or Credit card at the exit.
The system is quite high-tech, but i personally think It can be quite a hassle for some people, like my parents for example. But so far, everything is good here! Nice food, great ambiance!
Fancy Tea Bags
Peperoni Pizza from Flour and Water (Western stall).
Normal skinny pizza with tomato base, huge-not-so-dried peperoni, and melted cheese.
Foie Gras Ricebowl from Ezo Hokkaido East (Japanese stall)
This is everyone’s favourite. This consist of medium cooked succulent USA beef , fluffy rice, pickles, with awesome nice-smell super tasty foie gras sauce. All of this combination just melts in your mouth. One of the must try! and must enjoy this while it’s warm!
PorkBelly Sandwich and Truffle oil mashed potato from Le Coq Roti (French stall)
I dont really eat pork. But this one is considered good. The roasted pork belly is so juicy and tender. and since the filling is so overflowing, you have to eat this sandwich with fork and knife, and not with your both hands like the normal sandwich.
The Truffle oil mashed potato is heavenly as well! I can just eat this mashed potato alone without anything else. The mashed potato is just so soft, creamy and flavourfull. More over it’s truffle oil mashed potatoo.. The greatest combination ever!
Kimchi Noodle from Daebak (Korean Stall)
I’m a noodle person, and i am always up for any kinds of noodle. As for this, i think the noodle is thicker than normal Shin Ramyun (Korean instant noodle) and quite chewy. As for the soup, it’s not kimchi-ish much, which not that sour but quite spicy. The melted cheese add more texture for the noodle and richness of the soup. This bowl actually goes with clamps, but since i dont really eat clamps, i asked the cook to change it to extra dumplings. The dumplings itself is just a normal minced meat dumplings, but quite generous in its filling.
