@candidcuisine Le relaise de l'entrecote | slightly touristy but not to be missed especially as the sauce is the star of the meal! #sgfoodie #wheretoeat #parisfoodie #parisfood #traveltiktok #sgfoodies ♬ Dance The Night (From Barbie The Album) – Dua Lipa
In Paris, there are a lot of touristy places. There’s Carette. Angelina. Le Cafe Marly for that beautiful hot chocolate shot against the Louvre Pyramid backdrop. And then there’s Le Relaise de l’entrecote — whose lines along Rue Marbeuf block snakes around the block. The lines form roughly an hour before it’s lunch and dinner service, and if you missed the first service, then too bad, you’re going to have to line up on another day.
But if you only have limited time in Paris, is it even worth lining up for?
I found out that it actually is. And for the most part of bistros around Paris, L’entrecote’s less than 30 euros meal is a great value for money deal. I’d choose this over any traditional French bistro serving French Onion soups and duck confits too salty for my liking. I find its steak sauce made of dijon mustard and olive oil makes up for the long lines.
L’entrecote steaks aren’t foreign to me, and Hong Kong’s La Vache remains to be one of my favorites. But Le Relaise de l’entrecote executes much focus on the sauce and heaps and heaps of skinny fries to go along with it. It is not a meal for the diet conscious. The addiction lies in wiping every blot of sauce you can find on the plate with anything — fries, baguette, the steak. The latter isn’t the best in my opinion, whether rare, medium or well done. Elderly will find the meat tough to chew, but for young ones, the steak is a delight. I liked it best when there’s sauce. When it’s all dried up then the allure is lost.
The 30 euro meal shines through on the second serving. For those celebrating anniversaries, first dates and birthdays while you’re in Paris, I’d recommend Le Relaise de l’entrecote. Good to try, second visits are worth pondering.
No reservations for lunch service. Call for dinner reservations.
