|The varies murals on the restaurant's name card|
I stumbled upon this quaint and essentially french restaurant about three years ago when I first went to Paris. It doesn't have a fancy façade. What greet you as you stand outside the restaurant on Rue Bourg Tibourg is an almost worn down and humble forest green exterior. When when you enter, you are greeted by friendly and homely ambience. All the walls are decorated with humorous postcard murals that will put a smile on your face.
The menu are simple and typically french with dishes such as smoked duck salad, baked goat cheese salad, pan fried sole with beurre blanc etc, but my favourite has to be the entrecôte and mash. It's a simple dish but I have had my fair share of badly cooked steak in lots of restaurant. I like mine medium rare , however often I get them overcooked. Here, you get the most perfect flavoursome piece of steak that is cooked just right. The mash is creamy and smooth, just the way its meant to be.
So if you get a chance, do pay this restaurant a visit, and if you are a steak lover like me, then this is a must on your to do list...I rest my case!
