Classic French Fare at L’Entrecôte


The entrance

L’Entrecôte The French Brasserie at Suntec City is the third L’Entrecôte under Deliciae Hospitality Management's group of restaurants. Its flagship restaurant, is located at Duxton Hill while the second outlet is located at Pacific Plaza. L’Entrecôte at Suntec has a smaller menu compared to its flagship restaurant, however, the Parisian bistro concept is apparent in all the outlets. Founder and CEO, Olivier Bendel ensures that the décor and dining concept remains consistent throughout the three outlets.
 
The interior

 I have never been to the outlets at Duxton Hill and Pacific Plaza and stumbled upon the outlet at Suntec when I was shopping there. I was attracted to the homely and casual ambience and the amicable staff, therefore I decided to try the food. The ambience is casual and trendy and can seat up to 150 persons. The décor is classically French, with paper tablemats, vintage mirrors and custom designed lights.

Entrecôte means “between the ribs” in French. L’Entrecôte is famed for its steak and fries and classic French Fare. Unlike other steak restaurants where you can choose your cut, L’Entrecôte serves the cut of the steak in between the sirloin and ribeye, which is unique and highly sought after. The winning formula is the legendary, buttery sauce drizzled over the succulent steak. This style of preparation was developed in Paris in 1930s and was popularised in many parts of the world.

 
Soupe à l'oignon (Traditional French onion soup)

My dining experience commenced with the soupe à l'oignon  (traditional French onion soup with cheese toast - $9). It was hearty, flavourful and emitted a homely feel.

Escargots de bourgogne
 
Next, I had escargots de bourgogne (French dish consisting of snails - $13 for 6 pieces) steeped in parsley garlic and butter. Delectable and juicy, each morsel was a delight for the taste buds.
 
Entrecôte Steak 

The signature main course of Entrecôte Steak -($29.90 for classic)  with its signature sauce and crispy golden French fries and walnut green salad was an awesome but decadent combination. The melt-in-your-mouth succulence of the steak, accentuated with the creamy goodness of the sauce, made it the perfect dish to satiate your appetite.
 
 Le canard (duck confit)

Another satisfying dish was the le canard (duck confit - $20). Keeping true to its French roots, the skin of the duck was cooked to perfection, giving it the crunch which sets a good duck confit apart. It was accompanied with a creamy sauce and sautéed vegetables.
 
 Profiterole de “L’Entrecôte” (vanilla bean ice cream profiteroles)

To wrap the experience on a pleasant note, I had the quintessential profiterole de ’Entrecôte” (vanilla bean ice cream profiteroles - $12). They are delightful, divine and deliciously rich, fulfilling your sweetest desires.

 
Enjoying my profiteroles

L’Entrecôte is definitely one of the restaurants that I would return to try some of the other dishes. It offers decent French fare without burning a hole in your pocket.

 The restaurant is open from 11.30am to 9.30pm daily and is located at Suntec City Mall, #B1-128/129, 3 Temasek Boulevard, Singapore 038983. For reservations, please call +65 6690 7569.
