If you want to enjoy good quality of steak and something else (just a bit), La Vache would be a good option. Came here for a gathering with schoolmates who are all food lovers. We knew that all La Vache served on main menu are: green salad, steak and unlimited fries.
First of all, refreshing green salad. The acidity of the sauce and crispy walnut would make you get ready for the main course.
重頭戲出現了 — 牛扒。五人同行，四人點了medium rare，一人點了rare，侍者細心的為我們分好牛扒到碟上，留一半的份量在爐上，然後再分發薯條給我們。Medium rare煮得恰到好處，肉質鮮嫩，而肉汁剛好鎖住，而放在爐上的牛扒也沒有因時間而煮得過熟或涼掉。 秘製的Bearnaise sauce剛好提升了牛肉的甜味，如果不想食醬汁的話，簡單下少許黑椒已經很鮮美了。
Here you come the main course, the steak. The server brought us our main course and carefully distributed them to us. Left all of the potions on the plate and gave us the fries. The steak cooked precisely to medium rare. With the softness, it looked so juicy. The remaining steak kept warm but not overcooked while it was kept on the plate with fire underneath. The bearnaise sauce brought out the sweetness of the beef. If you don’t like having sauce, you may simply add a bit pepper.
Fries, the most unforgettable item here. Salty and crispy. Freshly fried and not oily at all. I couldn’t stop myself eating it every time I came here.
The desserts at dinner are different from the dessert for set lunch. You can pick what you want from the dessert cart, which carries around 9-10 types of dessert, $78-98/pc. We ordered apple pie, caramel pudding, hazelnut pie, Eclair and hazelnut puff. The puff and Eclair were filled with hazelnut cream. The shell with the caramel was so sweet and hard. The apple pie and caramel pudding would be less sweet choice. My favourite of the night was hazelnut pie.It’s actually like cream horn, with hazelnut filling. The crunchy pastry shell with the smooth hazelnut paste was a perfect match.
The restaurant is located in Soho. If you don’t mind to walk a few steps and dine in a crowded environment, spend around $300 for a meal is quite reasonable.
