Le Relais de l'Entrecôte in Paris, France



This small local chain of steak-frites shops is an offshoot of the original Le Relais de Venise L'Entrecôte. There was no menu: just tell them how you want your meat done, and the salad, bread, and fries come along with it.

The green sauce obviously was central to all of this, especially since the meat was surprisingly lean, and thus needed the huge assist provided by the butter. The fries were better: fried crispy and full of potato-ey taste. I liked the edginess of the dijon mustard that they used in the salad dressing too.

I'm still a bit baffled by that lean cut of meat though: I wonder if other shops will use a better cut. It might also be worth going back to L'Entrecote back in Singapore again to make a comparison too; I haven't been there in a while.
