Louis Cafe...western/fusion style

Louis Cafe was featured in The Star and from the review; we thought we would pay the restaurant a visit. The place gave me a cosy feeling as I stepped inside. The interior done in light colours with simple decorations looked pleasant. Brightly lit, it exuded the 'family kind' of place feeling. Food served at the place was actually fusion style. We went for the set-dinner, which comprised of a salad, a soup, one main course, a beverage and a dessert of the day. We had six choices (meat) to choose from the menu. Louis Cafe has quite an extensive menu. What we had was the Chicken with prunes (sorry I forgot the name of the dish) and the grilled lamb cutlet. For the chicken, both of us did not quite like the taste. I personally do not like something as sweet as the prunes cooked together with meat. Hubby had the same comments. The grilled lamb cutlet was tasty. It did not smell of 'unbathed' lamb and it was tender. In addition, it was well marinated.The salad served was quite generous in portion.The cream of mushroom soup that we had was their signature dish. We were not disappointed as there was a lot chopped mushroom in every scoop put in the mouth. The soup served was creamy and not too liquid. One thing I liked, cornstarch was not used to make the soup thick. The pumpkin soup that we had, it was not so tasty. We both agreed it was too watery and tasted bland.I noticed that the chef took a lot of trouble to make the dish look presentable. The mash potato, it was deep-fried and came in the shape of a pear! The picture above showed a plate of Smoked salmon steak with Dijon creme sauce. It was good to the last bite. The sauce was good. Could it be because I love Dijon mustard? LOL.The baked stuffed chicken was quite ordinary. It was just chicken stuffed with a jumbo sausage and baked. The only thing I noted was the chicken was tender and juicy.What I went oohlala with..at Louis was the deep-fried chicken wing. The batter was very crispy and the chicken wings tasted good. Sugar, spices and all...made them tasty.
The price of the set dinner ranged between RM32.90 - RM39.90Louis Cafe is located at 161C Argyll Road, Penang. Tel: 042287729 **10% Service Charge
