Food Tasting Sessions at Louis Cafe, Argyll Road Penang

Last week when I was in Penang for CNY, I got invited by Lingzie to join her for a food tasting session at Louis Cafe, Argyll Road. It is just opposite Mingood Hotel. The restaurant opened since Dec 22nd 2008.

This place is very suitable for business discussions too as it come with FREE WIFI Service which I couldn’t leave without nowadays. Every business do depend on internet to communicate and passing info around.

louis 10.jpgEnd up we ordered a Fresh Pumpkin SoupRating 4/5 [RM9]. The pumpkin soup were cooked from a fresh pumpkin and very creamy. It comes with a bit of almond flakes which blend it perfectly.

louis 13.jpgItalianese Wild Mushroom SoupRating 3/5 at [RM10] Fresh daily cook mushroom soup consist of shitake mushroom, button mushroom and abalone mushroom. This soup shall taste better if the chef add a bit of black mushrooms and will make a better presentation as the current color made it looks it just came out from the can.
