It seems like only yesterday that I last visited Le Bon Marche back in February 2010. So in late November, while deliberating on where we should go for a quick lunch, Le Bon Marche came to mind – an excellent choice, I must add.
I’m pleased to say that while the prices do seem to be on the rather high side, the quality of the food alone more than compensates for the hole in my wallet. Service is extremely sincere and particular mention has to be given to the lady boss, who greets you at the door, serves you with a smile and thanks you for the business and wishes that you return some time soon.
To start off, we shared a plate of the Burrata Cheese served with some of the sweetest tomatoes that I had in a while. Indulgent, I know, but who can resist the creaminess of burrata and the delicate texture of the tomatoes.
We had a braised lamb shank. The lamb was delicious and its meat, absolutely fork tender; The result of long hours in the braising wine liquid.
A pity that the vegetables on the side were a little under cooked.
Just when you thought that the the meal would taper off to something less indulgent, we had a Grilled Beef Tenderloin. But that’s not it! On top of the Beef Tenderloin lay a decently sized Pan Seared Foie Gras. But with the beef and the foie gras already on the plate, why not add a few shavings of White Truffles?
Grilled to a perfect medium done-ness, the beef tenderloin was tender, juicy and full bodied, if you will. The foie gras was pan seared immaculately, melt in the mouth in the middle and with a slight crisp on the out side. And of course, white truffles cannot be faulted right?
