Parisienne Steak Frites @Le Relais de l’Entrecôte

Address222 Queen’s Road East, Wanchai

Le Relais de l’Entrecôte brings a unique concept of Parisienne style steaks to Hong Kong. “How would you like your Steak?” maybe the first greeting from your server. Unfamiliar to most, but certainly not disappointing and definitely one of the best value meals! At $288, it is certainly a rare find in this city!

Le Relais de l’Entrecôte has 3 restaurants in Paris with outposts in Dubai, Geneva, London and now Hong Kong. The Space is a typical Parisienne Brasserie style, adorned with vintage posters and antique mirrors. Originally sporting a no booking policy, Hong Kong’s branch now accepts reservations, making it much more accessible than its counterparts!

Servers are very prompt, swooping in with your walnut salads, and almost immediately following with the main event. Crispy golden and thin cut fries, juicy and tender Steak, doused in their signature (and secret) herb and butter sauce, leaves you craving for more! Paired with a great Wine list and atmosphere, L’entrecôte can do no wrong.

Remember to save room for desserts! Le Relais de l’Entrecôte‘s tantalizing assortment of Parisienne desserts will make you not want to share and yearn for more! The Vacherin d’été is a must try, with all other classics just as spectacular.

Sometimes all you need is a simple meal to satisfy your carnivorous cravings! Crispy fries and steak with a herby butter sauce; Yes Please!
