Dinner @ Les Boucheries Parisiennes

Paalo is in the mood for steak and I don't have any in the fridge so we've come to Les Boucheries to soothe that inner carnivore.

For starters:

Seared scallops with carrot puree, watercress and apple salad, almond foam

I just can't go past the scallops.

Paalo orders the platter of six entree's

ham hock terrine with poached shitake

gruyere cheese souffle, hazelnut biscotti, spiced pear chutney

Truffled Tortellini, Seared scallops, Escargots de Bourgogne and oysters with grapefruit and salmon roe

The next dish is a special treat from the kitchen:

beef tartare with quail egg

You might easily mistake it for tuna but that is beef, beautiful and tender, it is cut as small chunks rather than minced. It's one of the best we've had and I hope they put it on the menu.

For mains:

I have the Welsh Black Angus Steak served with roasted shallots, cherry tomatoes and bearnaise sauce

Paalo opts for the Rib Eye served with a red wine sauce

The steaks both come with pomme frites but we swap one out for

truffled mashed potatoes and also order a side of beans.

We finish off with a grand assortment of cheese.
