L’Entrecote @Duxton Hill (Singapore)
L’Entrecote on Duxton Hill is a french bistro style restaurant that makes it easy for those who can never decide what to order, like me. As main you can have steak, steak or steak, with fries to be exact. So when I feel like something meaty this is the place that I’m drawn to most often.
Having only one main on the menu made them become pretty damn good at it. The meat comes usually in two servings – one bigger, one smaller – and is cooked perfectly according to your preference. Entrecote is a premium cut from the rib area and at L’Entrecote they cover it with their special creamy mustard sauce which enhances but doesn’t overpower the meat. The fries are thinly cut and crisp and will be refilled as long as you ask for more and together with a small walnut salad all this comes for under 30 dollars ++.
As starters we had the ‘Bone Marrow‘ which comes as one big split and grilled beef bone together with rock salt and toasted bread. It’s buttery texture and taste make this such a sinful dish but I can’t get around it when I’m there.
As a second starter we ordered the ‘Sardines in a Tin‘. As the name suggests they are served in an opened tin where the sardines lie in high quality vegetable oil. Spread on a piece of baguette, sprinkled with rock salt and drizzled with some lemon juice this creates a great combination of flavors with the sardines as the headliner.
Their house red is a semi dry Bordeaux which is not too heavy and goes along just fine with the food and can also be purchased for takeout.
Come early or prepare to wait as they don’t take reservations and it gets very busy in the evenings. ‘Steak & Fries‘ in perfection.
