The Steak and Frites, and absolutely nothing but the STEAK & FRITES!
translates to a premium cut of beef,
most often, a fine sirloin steak.
The potatoes, perfectly crisp and golden,
(cooked in peanut oil to avoid trans fats?)
and topping everything off:
HERB BUTTER SAUCE,
from the chef's secret recipe,
is slathered over the sliced sirloin,
(I recommend medium rare or medium)
and the perfectly cut shoestring french fries.
(the frites are all-you-can-eat at L'Entrecôte!)
Chef-at-Large of Les Halles,
always talks about the tens of thousands
of steak frites served at that world-famous Brasserie,
and I've always wanted to dine there;
L'Entrecôte just might be the closest thing to that
Manhattan experience that we can find in MetroManila.
1. steak frites with salad
2. steak frites with salad, dessert, and a glass of wine
3. steak frites without steak (the vegetarian option. gasp!)
Elegant tea candles
and a gleaming steel rack
serve as the heating element
that keeps the steak sizzling hot.
I love their music that completes that Parisian ambience.
The songs sound exactly like the sunny French tunes
that are on the soundtrack of my favorite show,
and if you have an extra 50K or so,
you can buy any of the paintings on the wall!!!
Bellagio 2, Forbes Town Center,
Burgos Circle at the Global City
Oh, and may I just say
how much I love the "French Maid"
uniforms of the very polite serving staff?
Ooh la la!!!
L'Entrecôte is on the same compound as McDo and UCC;
go deeper towards Burgos Circle, you'll find it on the left side.
