La Vache! Central, Hong Kong
Things are still crazy busy, I am trying to get ‘healthy’ so whilst Dragon is at school, instead of blogging I am at the gym – yes you are reading that right! Not every day though, trying to go 2-3 times a week and the other 2 days I am catching up with friends. Working, being a full time mum, really doesn’t give me much time and at night when Dragon is asleep, all I want to do is curl up in bed catching up on my TV drama shows! Hence the blog being slightly neglected! Apologies 🙂
I was catching up with an old friend for lunch, we catch up at least once a fortnight, sometimes we try something new, other times we just go back to the usual places. This time however, she suggested we go to La Vache! Now I haven’t been but J has been many times before and I can see why.
La Vache! only serves one dish and is a restaurant focused on steak frites – now how can I say no to that? Steak and bottomless fries are the only things that La Vache! serves for HKD258, USD35 and you get bread and butter to start as well as a green leaf salad with walnuts – not bad I thought. Now the steak itself is pretty decent, it’s quite juicy, tender, flavourful and totally hit the spot when you are craving for some beef! It’s not the best steak I’ve had but it is pretty decent – bang for buck!
The salad was simple, fresh and delicious. I had to pick out the nuts – damn nut allergy 😦
Steaks are served on a silver platter pre-cut and ready to eat. I ordered medium rare and even though it was a little red than I wanted it was still pretty good!
The chips – love thin fries and yes, you heard right, bottomless!
Not only that, dessert – OMG! 3 large profiteroles filled with vanilla bean ice cream – pause! my stomach was about to explode!
Service was good, we came for lunch and it was packed! I am pretty sure everyone left stuffed to the brim, and I waddled back to work taking the long way back. Will definitely come back for another steak fix.
