Update:  Louis Cafe has closed

Its makan time again and this time around, the food tasting session was at Louis Cafe located in Argyll Road. This restaurant which was opened on December last year is facing directly opposite Mingood Hotel.

There was a wide selection of dishes and for starters, we had the Caesar Salad with Smoked Salmon- RM18 and the Organic Garden Greens – RM15.

Another delightful salad – Scallop Salad. A plate of fresh garden greens with Seared Sea Scallop topped with delicious Apple Salsa – RM20. The sourish taste is very appetizing.

The range of soup are more on the creamy side, very well blended and served with buns & butter. I personally like the broccoli soup.

Below are some of the dishes that I particularly enjoyed during this food tasting session.

Fish Gordon Bleu – RM25 is a piece of deep fried red snapper fillet stuffed with Ham and Cheese Crumbed. The fish goes well with the accompanied Lime Butter Sauce.

As for the pasta, we had the Fettuccine Cabonara and the Pasta Arrabiata, both at RM16. I personally like the Pasta Arrabiata as it has more flavour with the spicy tomato pulp sauce and goes well with the chili, bacon and assorted wild mushroom.

Chicken tortilla  – RM15.90. Delightfully melts in your mouth and best taken when its hot out of the oven. Recommended to try this out.

Grilled Lamb Chop with brown mushroom sauce – RM22…grilled until perfection. Almost similar to the black pepper counterpart, but the mushrooms gives another dimension to the dish.
