We met at Pepito on a cold Monday evening, the bar was quiet to say the least but it didn't matter, I had good company.
As I was late, the wine had had time to breath and it was delicious. The French waitress was friendly and still non intrusive. I wasn't hungry but was convinced by my friend to try the smoked steak tartare (smoked tartare, really ??) and we stood by the tiny cooking station behind the bar to watch the magic.
The cook/chef/guy sliced thin piece of beef and started mincing it by hand and smoking it with burning oak. Pretty special. It arrived at the table under a glass dome and looked pretty cool. It had an interesting oak-y and citrussy flavour.
I'll come back hungry next time !
