C'est La Vie @ Summerton, Bayan Lepas, Penang.

C'est La Vie is one of the new members tucked in Summerton, offering a small menu which comprises of East meets West elements; diners can feast upon flavorful options like Rice Set or Pasta dishes, to sweets like cakes. The interior decor is creative- grass flooring, comfortable couches, love locks over the wall, miniature Eiffel Tower etc. Couples or lovers can even purchase the locks and to have names written on the pad lock as well as to lock it on the wall; which symbolizes ever-lasting love. Also, another reason to visit the cafe is that it offers Buy 1 Free 1 promotion on every Saturday (only selected beverages). C'est La Vie needs to fine tune their menu, offering more attractive dishes to lure the customers' attention; nevertheless, nothing is easy, C'est Le Vie!



A recommendation from the server- Funghi Spathetti (Rm 14.90) comes in less-convincing presentation. Slices of fresh Shitake Mushroom were used, together with a handful of Garlic, Herbs, Spices and Chili Flakes. The Spaghetti was carefully cooked to al-dente, however, I was not impressed with the use of Shitake Mushroom here. I thought the flavor did not stand out as I would have hoped, Eryngii could be a better option here. Not too shabby but can be enhanced further.
