Les Bouchons Rive Gauche, Robertson Quay

Les Bouchons Rive Gauche, ribeye

We hadn't gone back to Les Bouchons for quite a long while and couldn't get seats on short notice, so we ended up at the outlet on the left bank (41 Robertson Quay, tel : +65 6733 4414). The menu is pretty much the same as the one at Ann Siang and little has changed throughout the years. This would be the cosy French steak frites place you go to when you seek something that's not fancy and dependable. But then again, it also really depends on how you define those two words. Since I'm not the qualified person to be providing lessons in vocabulary, to the food....

Les Bouchons Rive Gauche, sirloin

The meat quality is not fancy but very serviceable. The cooking has been pretty much the same standards throughout the past years; up to the point where their medium rare (I call it the French medium rare) is still a little more rare than most other people's medium rare. Consistently so, so to speak. Like I mentioned earlier, dependable. Barring accidents. Fries seem to be nicer than I remember it. Despite the large portions, I finished them. There's actually little need to exercise the botttomless option since the primary potions are already pretty generous.

Les Bouchons Rive Gauche, creamed spinach

What I didn't recall them ever having previously was creamed spinach. And blue cheese sauce which is chargeable. That sauce if you are wondering works for the sirloin, their bread and their fries. Both items taste to be from the same recipe from their sister L'angelus. The spinach was the same tasty nutmeg scented and wilted in cream rendition which I rather liked.

Very bad service and the manger certainly don't know what is hospitally means to their customer.
The steak is over cook and nothing to shout about.
