This year, we decided to celebrate YL's birthday at Marche Movenpick at the new The Curve at Mutiara Damansara. I've never been a huge fan of Movenpick even though I've visited their restaurants in Hong Kong and Singapore. Not sure why. Anyway, after our visit there to the first Malaysian outlet, I'm not in a hurry to go back again.

Really, it is a glorified food court ... with people lining up to get in!!
I arrived late and basically ate off what the others had ordered ... which was a bit of everything; pizza, soup, salads, cod fish, stir fried mushrooms, pastas (carbonara and tomato-based), sausages and rosti. I didn't think any of it was super delicious or anything, but definitely edible.

Desserts didn't look anything special so we decided to adjourne to Paddington's Pancakes instead.

I think Marche is pulling in the crowd because while it's a glorified food court, it's appeal to the yuppie suburban crowd is that it makes them feel as if they made some contribution to the cooking process i.e. they get to choose the "raw" ingredients that went in. I mean, these are the people who do not regularly go food shopping in the markets but rather, to places like Giant and Tesco, etc. So, to be able to choose the raw ingredients and put it into a basket will give some sense of domesticity. It's like, what we are eating now ... I chose the ingredients you know ...

Anyway, we ended up paying about RM50 per pax for 6 adults and that's rather expensive seeing we didn't even go for tiger prawns or anything. Oh well ...
