PIQUE NIQUE + PARIS BAGUETTE: Mummy's 56th birthday treat!!

This is going to be a looooong post because as the title mentioned, it's my mummy's birthday!! Mummy took off & lil bro has no school, so we decided to hang out for the day. Lunch treat from Yours Truly (me), movie, snack time, buffet dinner treat from dad, & of course lots of shopping in between. So first stop, lunch at Pique Nique!!

391A Orchard Road, Ngee Ann City Tower A, #B1-01/02, Singapore 238873
Operating hour: 10am to 9.20pm (last order 9pm, last seating 9.15pm)

2 Jurong East Central 1, #01-08, Singapore 609731
Operating hour:
Sun to Thurs - 11am to 10pm (last order 9.30pm, last seating 9.45pm)
Fri & Sat - 11am to 11pm (last order 10.30pm, last seating 10.45pm)

We went to the one at Takashimaya, because it's easier for us to walk around after that.. =)
All-Day Breakfast: Norwegian Benedict $14
2 poached eggs with toasted English muffin, smoked salmon, sour cream, served with side salad
(The most simpliest presentation. Poached eggs taste plain with very minimal sour cream on it, & the muffin is just slightly toasted. The only nice part I would say is the smoked salmon.)
The Tokyo Connection Burger $12.80
Teriyaki Chicken leg, mashed potato, wasabi mayo, tomato, lettuce
Pasta: Bacon Carbonara $16
Classic cream sauce with caramelized bacon, tossed with spaghetti, served with a poached egg & Parmesan cheese
(One of the few carbonara that will not get 'gelat' after a few mouth)
Sides - Fries 'R' Us: Goulah Fries $15
Pique Nique's fries with Hungarian Beef Goulash stew and sour cream
(This is the bomb!! Fries taste just as good on its own. The beef stew is thick & rich)
In my opinion, I feel that Pique Nique serves better sides & desserts than their mains. Came for their cakes once I have to say, they serve the BEST red velvet cake. Well, at least I feel they are one of the best. Always pass by Takashimaya, & I will drop by for their red velvet cake. Didn't manage to order a piece today because we were too full!! 
Next stop, movie!! My mum is not a lady that watch movie much, everytime she watched would be because it's an occasion. So this time, it's her birthday!! After much discussion with my lil bro to choose which movie we have not watched individually, we decided on 'About Time'. 
Good choice I must say, because it's really a nice show. Makes you cherish the simple & little things you have in life. I give 4 popcorns for that. People, go watch it before it's off the showchart. =)

After movie, it's back to shopping!! We walked from Cathay Cineleisure to Ion Orchard, & along the way we started to feel a little tired & hungry. And me having a sweet-tooth, I brought my mum & younger bro to Paris Baguette located at Wisma Atria.

Wisma Atria, 435 Orchard Road, #02-02/03,48/49,52/53 Singapore 238877
Operating hour: follows that of Wisma Atria

Many people would think Paris Baguette started out in Paris. As a matter of fact, it is actually started in Korea by an international food and food service company call SPC Group. 
Oh, My Baby Crepe $8
(Layer crepe cake slice filled with mango & cream)
Hi! Earl Grey Cake $8
Mango Royal Pudding $4.50
The mango cake & royal pudding are the 2 popular items on the menu, while the earl grey cake is just for my own tasting. Flavours for the royal pudding differ everyday.

And so our day ended, before meeting up with dad at night for dinner at Sakura International Buffet. 
Once again, HAPPY BIRTHDAY MUMMY!! Hope you enjoyed yourself today. =)
