Tables are tightly packed and service is what some would call brusque. There is no chit-chat. The waitresses in their cutesy French maid uniforms take your order, write it on the paper table cloth and move onto the next table.
In this day and age of too much choice, it is nice to walk into a restaurant and the only choice you get is how you would like your steak cooked. Even then, I debate whether they actually pay any attention – rare to medium rare seems to be the standard. If you are vegetarian, this place is not for you! With the thinly sliced entrecote steak, comes perfectly crisp hand-cut French Fries (what else?) and a sauce that like the Colonel’s 11 herbs and spices, remains a tightly guarded family secret. The sauce has become quite legendary and many have tried and failed to recreate it. Once you have finished and just when you’re thinking you can’t eat any more, a second helping of steak-frites is served with more of the delicious sauce. Seconds? Why not? Totally gut-busting, but totally more-ish!
For a decent steak and a quick meal, I recommend “The secret sauce place” as we like to call it. The food is good and at £21.00 per person for 2 courses, pretty great value. Just get there early!
Until we eat again!
