La Maison Blanche Cafe @ Alma, Bukit Mertajam, Penang.
La Maison Blanche Cafe is advantageous over its competitors at Alma, Bukit Mertajam; the cafe runs its business in the serene neighborhood of Alma, though the location may be a little obscure but it does not seem to stop the regular patrons to continue thronging the place. Our possible assumption would be their eye-catchy exterior design... the entire cafe was transformed into a small cottage, exuding a relaxed and calm ambiance. On the menu... it has the usual cafe fare with some simple Western dishes but most visited the place to try on their Affogato (which we did not). Fun place with comfortable interior decor but not a place that I would want to frequent.
Possibly an ostentatious attempt- Chicken Waffle (Rm 18) served with squiggles of Chili Mayo, it was not ordinary Chicken Burger but rather, a huge slab of Grilled Chicken Breast. Fortunately, the meat was tender and succulent. I am not a fan of savory Waffles, the combination somehow would not work on me. Same goes for La Maison Blanche Cafe's, the Waffles were nicely done but I would personally prefer them to serve as a sweet treat. The sides, however, could have been more inspiring than the usual serving of Fries though.
Supposedly a signature dish of Le Maison Blanche Cafe, LePesto Pizza (Rm 18) comes in a substantial portion with attractive vegetables blanketed in a molten pool of Cheese; served atop of a thin, blistered crust evenly spread with Pesto sauce. It was toothsome with herbaceous-vegetal flavor but carnivores might find it a little monotonous for lacking the meaty bite. If I had to nitpick, we thought the Pizza was a little dry to our liking.
