Marche Movenpick @The Curve

The entrance and our table

It was Thaipusam, a public holiday yesterday.  I had a brunch date with my bunch of girl friends from my working days.. We met about 10 years ago and they were my loyal Starbuck gang those days where we literally killed our two hours' lunch time there almost everyday after lunch.  Most of them has since moved on and left the company except one.  

They are all career women in their thirties, some married while some still enjoying their single lifestyle.  One of them had just been promoted as General Manager of a public listed company.  Congrats, LL and I am so happy for her.  She's a capable and strong willed woman and I am not surprised at all for what she has achieved today despite only in her mid thirties..

So, in celebration to her promotion, we were treated to a brunch at Marche and we had LL's generosity to thank for as the bill came up to more than RM300 for 6 of us..  The food there was good though a bit pricey.  I was so busy eating that I didn't take the photos of food that came later.  Each of them had fruit juice except me who ordered bottomless soft drinks where I enjoyed unlimited free refill.  No photos for the portobello or was that mushroom dish and fruit crepe with ice cream and latte that came later.  I so loved the mushroom dishes there and would sure order this dish again on my next visit.

The market place and grill station

Marché (pronounced Mar-shay), means “market” in French, is a restaurant concept developed by the Swiss-based Mövenpick Group. Customers are given a “passport” upon entry, and each and every food item ordered will be stamped on the passport and the bill will be settled based on the stamps before you leave the restaurant. Loss of passport will cost RM200.00 so be careful!

The market concept with their collections of market tables and stations offer extensive food that includes meat and seafood grills, salads and delicacies, pizza, rosti, pasta, roast, sausages, vegetables, sushi, bread and pastries, desserts, coffee, freshed pressed juice, wines and beers and others.

Sorry, LF, I didn't get your "wrinkled thumb", in your own words, photoshopped as my photoshop skill sucks. ;)

mnhl: Ha, only I realised.. there was supposed to be a scoop of mashed potatoes but taken by someone as we shared our food. By the way, side dishes are charged separately, expensive hor?
