A new menu is coming soon to Les Boucheries Parisiennes so we've headed over to sample a few more dishes from their current menus.
Gruyere cheese soufflé, spiced pear chutney, hazelnut biscotti (this is from the Lunch Menu)
One of my favourite soufflés - the taste of toasty cheese on the outside with a soft fluffy interior.
Sesame seed crusted tuna loin, cucumber & orange spaghetti, Red pepper coulis (from the A La Carte Menu)
Another lighter option for a starter, tuna loin is just seared on the outside enough for the seeds to toast lightly while the loin remain raw in the center. The cucumber and orange spaghetti are quite refreshing.
Atlantic salmon, leek & mushroom ragout, champagne beurre blanc (a teaser from the Lunch Menu)
A little surprise from the Kitchen - a gorgeous cube of salmon, skin wonderfully seared and crisp while the interior is still slightly pink. The ragout proved to be an excellent companion to the fish while the beurre blanc just rounded off the dish nicely
Char-grilled beef sirloin, ratatouille, pommes frites, niçoise jus (also from the Lunch Menu)
As always, the meat was perfectly cooked, tender and well flavoured.
Open steak sandwich, onion jam, horseradish mayonnaise (from the Express Lunch Menu)
If you worked nearby it would be hard not to have this everyday - top quality at a steal.
To drink with mains: 2005 Tim Adams Tempranillo Reserve
Paalo has the French Apple Tart
and I have the mango pannacotta with pineapple donuts and pineapple and mint salsa.
