No matter what your taste buds, the Curve will not disappoint, writes Loong Wai Ting
WHETHER it’s a quick bite or a full course meal, there’s a bit of everything for everyone at The Curve. Located in Mutiara Damansara, Petaling Jaya, the mall houses over 60 food and beverage outlets.
Okay, let’s try this food crawl. Start your day at the Paddington House of Pancakes, located on the first floor of the mall. Using the freshest and finest ingredients, pancake expert Muda Muhammad, head chef of the restaurant, creates authentic pancakes from around the world, such as America, Australia, Austria and France.
You can choose sweet or savoury pancake dishes or go with the popular signature fluffy golden ring pancakes served with a scoop of ice-cream of your choice (strawberry, chocolate or vanilla).
Then, take a slow walk to Wingstop, located just below Paddington House of Pancakes for some savoury chicken wings. With so many restaurants serving chicken wings out there, there are bound to be some hits and misses. But at Wingstop, it’s mostly hits. There is a wide variety of wings to choose from and you can never go wrong with its American-inspired buffalo wings and sticky BBQ wings.
Feeling a little adventurous? Try its durian Oreo milkshake or the mango habanero milkshake. Wink, you’re welcome.
Still got space in your stomach? Head over to Franco to sample some of the best Japanese-French cuisine at the fusion restaurant. Not to be missed are chocolate souffle and Franco French Toast, with its thick fluffy stacks of eggy bread dusted with icing sugar.
Next, head over to Wetzel’s Pretzel, the California-based snack which serves different kinds of pretzels for different taste buds. From plain salted to garlic butter and sour cream almond, rest assured, the friendly staff here have everything covered.
Just a short distance away is the Shakeaway milkshake bar company, which originates from England. With over 180 flavours to choose from, I recommend that you take some time to browse through the menu before ordering.
Still have room for one more? If yes, head over to Tokyo Secret for its freshly-baked, melt-in-your-mouth Japanese cheese tarts. Forget about the calories because these Hanjyuku tarts are divine. With their cheese-filled centres, it’s easy to understand why foodies are going gaga over this.
Mouthwatering dishes to the fore
GET ready to feast and slurp your way through the annual Curve Food Fest 2017, which will be held from tomorrow till Oct 1.
Taking place at the mall’s Centre Court, the festival, which is currently in its third edition, features mouthwatering local and international dishes.
Themed Authentic Hawker Stall, there’s a slight twist to this year’s do: Chairs and tables will be provided so that patrons can sit down and enjoy their food while it is still piping hot.
Savour the variety of dishes to choose from, including evergreen favourite nasi lemak, and others like nasi tumpang, assorted kuih, pulut durian, ice-cream sandwich and more.
There are also popular West Asian specials such as chicken haneeth, lamb mandi and lamb zurbian. Wash it all down with refreshing drinks such as iced coffee, milkshakes and more.
Besides the plethora of food, visitors can also expect performances from street buskers daily from noon to 9.30pm.
Not only that, remember to get your camera ready for an eye-opening performance by Malaysia’s Teh Tarik King’s Champion 2014 and 2015 at 2.30pm on Saturday and Sunday.
