Ok. So if some of you have not visited The Curve yet, I suggest you do so if the opportunity arises. Although many shops STILL have not opened for business and the ideas of the recent incident may creep you out; They have this section of the mall called "The Street" which you must go if you're a connoisseur for dining.
As you can see, this classy looking walk is lined with palm trees and of course, food and drinks galore. Entering this area from the mall side, you'd find asian food on your left side and continental cuisine on your right. Take time to explore the inner ends of the mall, the place is decorated with terrace fountains with large openings in the roof so the sunlight spills in and bounces of with glistening reflections of the water, or sends gentle breezes of air while enjoying a moonlight stroll. Just don't walk when it's raining lah. Doh.
Lydia and Hsu Pheen upon my suggestion, went to take a bite at this place.
The Mövenpick Marché. Marché basically french for "market". The Mövenpick group are one of the well established companies from Sweden popular for their food and resorts. I used to have eaten at their restaurants while touring in London, but this one has a different concept to it compared to the air conditioned Malaysian restaurants you have here. At one point when it opened here, people were only allowed in by invitation but now, it's open for the public :)
Upon entry the person at the front door passes you this, one for each person or one or two for each family...depending on the number of people.
They call these passports. Basically what you do with them is you walk round the area and if you see something that you'd like to order, pass it to the lovely lady or the sweet man behind the counter, let them stamp it for you each time you place an order. At the end of your meal just pass the passport back at the cashier located at the exit, and pay for what ever is stamped on the card. The word of caution is to ever not lose this card, or RM200 will be donated to the charity of your choice. The cards said they will explain why. But I didn't bother finding out anyway.
The center of the Marché has stalls and stalls of different delights. You can have anything from asian, pasta, pattisserie, pizza, salads, seafood, soups, röstis, cakes and ice creams. And they seat you specially designed dining areas upon elevated landings or you can sit around the center of the marché to get this european so called open air -market dining. They have a a brasserie theme, a pizzeria theme and even a children's corner too :D

The good part about this is that the food is cooked FRESH infront of your eyes. Depending on the que the take about 3 minutes to prepare a rösti, 10-15 minutes to cook a pizza and some stuff like the salad are just self service :D
We had a pepperoni Pizza, some snapple and Pokka tea, rösti (Swiss dish of grated potatoes fried like a cake, usually served with sour cream) with sauteed mushrooms, and waffle and salad.
