Creme Brûlée is one dessert that I fancy and I swear by Italianni's version as well as Outback's. When I read that there's a French Restaurant that offers a good one for a lower cost, I though it was something I need to try. So I did.

Went to L'entrecote on a rainy afternoon. I love the place! Reds and whites, colorful paintings, cushioned seats, romantic setting - perfect date place! I loved the privy feel, the peace and quiet. It also has a second floor with more room for diners!
|Take a look at all those paintings and well upholstered seats!|
I immediately asked for their dessert menu and ordered a Creme Brûlée. Added an espresso, single shot, and chocolate croissants.

I was excited when the Crème Brûlée arrived! Served in the usual ramekin with torched sugar on top forming a crunchy layer, I loved how the caramel cracked as I took a spoonful.

The custard looked so creamy and rich! Tried it and it was okay. Tried it again and I wasn't satisfied.
|Checking out the custard beneath the torched sugar!|
It wasn't so bad but it needed some more cream and perhaps more egg yolks to reach a creamy and rich consistency. It was like those overly sweet leche flans lacking all the good stuff. It gets cloying after a while with the sweetness getting more intense and the vanilla essence surfacing. I think I only finished half of it.
|Single Shot Espresso for 95Php|
Good thing I got an espresso which was strong and removed all the sweetness from my palette.
|Pouring some milk into my strong espresso shot!|
Single shot espresso that was bitter and very concentrated, it was strong with good aroma and deep chocolate flavors.
|Mini Chocolate Butter Croissants (3 pieces) for 78Php|
Then I tried the croissants. Three bite-sized pieces, I didn't expect much from them though coz they looked ordinary, bread-like more than flaky. Served freshly out of the oven, they were warm. I took a bite and oh my gosh! I was taken to chocolate croissant heaven! Warm, very soft, flaky, right amount of sweetness, right proportion of dark chocolate - ahhh so good! I only wish that they have bigger sizes for their croissants.

I'm willing to go back to try their mains. Crushing on their Raclette with sausages, etc and their Duck Confit.
3 out of 5 Stars for L'entrecôte!
