Entrecote Cafe de Paris
Have you heard of “Café de Paris”? It is a sauce developed by Mr Boubier back in the 1930s to complement the Faux Fillet Steak (Entrecôte) in his restaurant, which also had the same name “Cafe de Paris” in Geneva. He then launched an astounding single menu formula that garnered an instant success globally. What goes inside this sauce is still a secret till today. Their menu is quite simple, only one main course along with the steak and the Cafe de Paris sauce. It comes served with a green salad and homemade French fries. And their selection of heavenly desserts is just not-to-be-missed.
