Marche Movenpick @ The Curve

Marche's milk cow: Last Sunday, I went to IKEA to shop for a few bundles of pussy willows. OMG, it was so jam-packed with families and the kids were playing around at the show room. We immediately head off to the market hall to get our to-buy things and went to the Curve to get a peace of mind.

It was nearly 7 and Char Siew Bao suggested Marche for dinner. I don’t really feel like having western food cus I believe that I had enough potatoes, broccolis, pastas and rocket leaves back in aussie. But anyway, I decided to give Marche a try as I was attracted by its ‘buffet-like’ concept.

This is my Marche passport. You will be given a passport at the entrance of the restaurant and remember not to lost it! Or else you will receive a RM200 penalty, which will then be donated to a charity of your choice. Haha… sounds interesting.

A glass of refreshing honeydew + grapefruit juice (RM 8.50). Other varieties include dragonfruit + honeydew (RM 8.50), orange (RM 8.50), watermelon (RM6.50) and coconut (RM6.50).

I ordered a plain Swiss Rösti (RM8.50) from the 'Switzerland' Counter which looks delicious. You can opt to add grated cheese which will cost you another 5 bucks. The Rösti turned up to be nothing special, just grated potatoes (eww...) mixed with lotsa fat and then baked in the oven.


There is this mushroom counter which serves different types of mushroom dishes. I took this yummy saute mushroom, priced at RM 8.50. The portion served was so generous that I had a hard time finishing 'em.


Char Siew Bao the big eater ordered rotisserie chicken wiv mashed potatoes (potatoes again??), priced at RM15.50.

The desserts displayed at the counter were somehow not so appetizing so we went to just dessert for honeydew and mango loh (RM 6.50). The shaved ice serves as a gud refreshment after a stuffy meal but I still prefer KTZ's mango loh.

The bill: RM54 for 2 persons at Marche.

Xiu Long Bao said...

jackson: haha, dun think i'll go bck too. They shld hav serve more varieties n' improve the quality of the food. Heard dat the singapore's branch located @ sunctec offers bttr food n services.

Char Siew Bao said...

Well, i think the food over there was average. But the concept was quite novel though! Plenty more to improve on!

boo_licious said...

Yeah, KL's Marche is so dissapointing, think it must be the operator as the other outlets in Singapore tastes so much better. I kinda boycott this place whenever we visit the Curve.

Xiu Long Bao said...
