Angus Steak @ L'Aurochs

It's been quite a while since I last had Steak with my last being Prime at Le Meridien KL. So when my client in Montreal asked if I would like to try a Montreal Steakhouse I happily agreed.

Our drive led us to a new Mall/Plaza in Brossard where L'Aurochs was located. This is apparently "the place" in the South Shore to have Steaks and the wall of signed celebrity plates at the entrance definitely set my hopes high for a good Steak.

At L'Aurochs, the focus is on Certified Angus Beef (CAB) where only 1.5% of all Angus Beef qualifies as Certified Angus. Looking at the menu the Steaks here are aged at least 35 Days and are seared in a 1800 degrees oven similar to that of Ruth Chris's Steakhouse.

Our meal began with the usual Bread. The Bread was served Cold and wasn't made in-house

Pan Seared Scallops

The Scallops were delicious! They cooked perfect leaving it a little uncooked in the middle and went well with the Black Pepper and Butter Sauce

Classic Caesar Salad

The Caesar wasn't made in front of us like other more traditional Steak Houses but was quite good.

My Tenderloin was really well seasoned, meaty and cooked to a perfect Medium. The Scallops were smaller than the appetizer but were equally juicy. The star however was their Twice Baked Potato with Cheese, Spring Onions and Bacon. The potato was whipped and then placed back inside the crispy Potato Skin. It was amazingly delicious!

Chocolate Mousse Cake

The Chocolate Mousse Cake was velvety smooth and oozing with Dark Chocolate Flavor. The Chocolate Crust at the bottom however was a little soggy.

Coffee Creme Brulee

The Creme Brulee was surprisingly light for a Steak House. It had a strong Coffee Flavor which was pretty nice.

Yogurt Muesli
Yogurt Muesli Dessert
My first time eating Yogurt Muesli as a Dessert. The Yogurt was topped with a layer of orange custard and crispy Muesli. The candied Lemon and Apricot Rind gave it a nice sour contrast. A light and hearty dessert

L'Aurochs was definitely better than Queue De Cheval in Downtown Montreal. My Fillet Mignon and Scallops were perfectly seasoned and cooked. However, the one thing I still crave for is their Baked Potato!
