L'entrecôte - Snacking in A French Restaurant

Written By clapalisoc on Tuesday, 19 July 2016 | 05:54

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!

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.

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.

Espresso from L'entrecôte
Single Shot Espresso for 95Php

Good thing I got an espresso which was strong and removed all the sweetness from my palette.

Single shot espresso that was bitter and very concentrated, it was strong with good aroma and deep chocolate flavors.

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!
