It’s another weekend at The Curve for me. Well, I didn’t exactly wanted to go to The Curve but I was there to catch a movie at Cineleisure. It was a 5:45pm show on a Sunday and I ..err …. haven’t had breakfast or lunch and I was practically starving. Yeah, yeah … it’s was Sunday and I woke up late, pretty late.


So I arrived at Cineleisure, parked my car and walked along the Sunday market at The Curve hunting for food. Incidentally, I was craving for some Aglio Olio (you pasta lovers should know this one) so I headed to Vivo Pizza. Yes, yes … it’s a pizza joint but I hated pizza. I mean, let’s put it this way …. I am a pure chinaman. No pun intended, I just prefer bah kut teh or a plate of chicken rice anytime over some cheesy western food. There …. I said it. Thank you !

Anyway, food or no food … I remembered Vivo serving some pretty terrific pasta so Vivo it is for me. I sat down, put in my orders … looked around and waited. I remembered consciously looking around at the crowd, and noted that most of the diners were couples but there were a handful of families too. While the crowd was generally good, the waiting staffs were not exactly warm. I figured, they could do better with a touch of smiles … here and there, instead of that obliging service they provide.


Finally my food arrived …. well, I ordered the Spicy Garlic Prawn instead of the Aglio Olio. A touch of difference, so to say. This little dish is served with some prawns, garlic, capsicums and extra virgin olive oil. Well, I don’t know if it’s just me but I felt that this dish could do better with a little more garlic …. since IT IS called Spicy Garlic Prawn. And yeah, a little more spiciness would do good too. I just find it a little too ‘plain’ … but then again, another person would have loved it. Personal preferences I guess.


The next item served was the New Zealand Mussels and Prawns Pasta and yes, for someone who doesn’t care much about western food … I am consuming a lot of it! Anyway, as the names says it … pasta with mussels … not just any mussels, it’s New Zealand mussels and of course, prawn again. I really have to watch my diet on this … too much prawns isn’t exactly that ideal.

And finally it’s dessert time! Nothing beats ice cream melting on hot chocolate brownie except for the brownie I ordered isn’t hot and my ice cream isn’t melting on it. On it’s own, the chocolate brownie is a little dry but have it with ice cream, it’s a totally different experience altogether.


My final verdict … NTB. That’s means, Not Too Bad with room for improvement.
Services … again, smiley, smiley.
Food quality …. the good, the bad … the yummy.
Pricing …. You won’t go broke.
