Having recently celebrated their 1st birthday, le Relais de l'Entrecote continues to provide diners with a fuss-free, yet satisfying menu (or, perhaps, lack thereof) of steak frites. Mirroring decor from the original Relais in Paris, the ambience is warm, open, and inviting. If you're looking to keep things simple yet classy this Chinese New Year and Valentine's Day, then le Relais de l'Entrecote's holiday specials might be your best bet.
Chinese New Year & Valentines Day Special
le Relais de l'Entrecote will be offering a special three course set menu from February 5 - 14; perfect for celebration dinners with friends and family to commemorate the Year of the Monkey, along with a special menu for Valentine's Day on February 14. Both options are priced at HK$388 per person, including a glass of house red wine, usually priced at HK$78. For those opting for the Valentine's Day special, you'll also get a bag of homemade heart-shape meringues to take home.
The menu includes warm oven baked French baguette and butter (we may or may not have carb-loaded a bit too much on the bread before our actual dinner arrived - it was that good) and a fresh green lettuce salad with walnuts, tossed in a Dijon mustard dressing.
The second course is the steak - the only part of the meal where you need to actually make a decision is how you'd like your steak done - where the chef recommends a medium rare. Diners will get two servings of steak, special sauce (that is so secretive, it's actually flown in from Paris!), and fries.
Be sure to save room for an indulgent dessert, as you have a choice between the "Relais" Profiteroles filled with vanilla ice cream, and served with a rich chocolate sauce and toasted almonds, or a creamy Creme Brulee with a crunchy caramel top on a base of fragrant custard made with fresh vanilla pods.
