La Vie in Georgetown did not disappoint
" a thoroughly enjoyable evening with each course prepared to perfection "
In a flash we are already six months into 2022.
This time we hosted our dinner at a little restaurant tucked away in Georgetown, La Vie did not disappoint.
We were also thrilled to welcome a fellow member who had just moved to Penang from Oman. It is always heart-warming to be able to welcome new faces from afar.
A carefully-curated menu with accompanying champagne and wines led to a combination of flavours that kept our diners thoroughly entertained ending the night replete.
The journey began with fresh Tasmanian oysters followed by seared Canadian scallops and then a fusion crab croquette with mango and longan salad.
There followed a classic mushroom soup to further warm our appetites before our mains which were a choice of New Zealand rack of lamb, Angus sirloin or seared pink garoupa fish.
For dessert, a simple classic Belgium dark chocolate gateau was the right combination of richness in texture and bittersweet flavour on our palate to end a wonderful meal.
Hats off to Kelvin and his team for a delicious dinner with just the right pairing of wine to complement each course.
I am happy to conclude that it was a thoroughly enjoyable evening with each course prepared to perfection. Overall it was a casual night of good food, ever-flowing wine, never-ending conversation and laughter.
