Hi Vancouver Chowhounders.

Any recommendations for Steak and Frites,

I have tried Jules, Smoking Dog and Les Faux Bourgeois. and plan to try Pied a terre and Salad de Fruits. Any other places with steak and frites for under 30 dollars?

Thanks in advance.

      There was a thread a while back ok this. Stella's, Jule's, PAT, smoking dog, HSG were mentioned. Les Faux may have it too.

      1. re: fmed

        salade des fruits, and smoking dog are the best imo

    2. La Brasserie might also if only i could get a # for it

        had the steak frites at La Brasserie last weekend and totally loved it. Best one i've had in a while. the steak was tender and juicy and the fries were greaseless, crispy and perfectly seasoned. think it was like $18. Sat at the bar facing the kitchen and got to chat with the chefs as well which made for a very pleasant evening.

      2. Which ones did you like tom_edo?

        1. How about Mistral Bistro? They have steak frites sometimes. Maybe Bistrot Bistro, too. If you're ever in Victoria, try Brasserie L'Ecole. Yum!

            of the ones I have been to, I would say Jules wins. What at deal at les Faux for 16 dollars and cheap wine but the beef could of been better quality but for 16 dollars, great deal.

            I am going to do some research of the ones listed (Stella and Pat). I m going to try and do 4 -5 spots for steak and fries this month to find the best.

              I was at Chambar for a bit tonight. They had a $29 Steak Bourguignon with frites - red wine mushroom sauce. I didn't have it, but it was apparently good. Chambar's food is generally excellent. I took a pic of it for you, but it somehow turned out too blurry to post. I always have problems taking pics there - it's so dark. So instead, I'll post a pic of one of the drinks I had tonight ;-) - a fig-infusion martini with a side of blue cheese.

              Les Faux's Steak Frites sounds a a great deal. I'll have to check that out. Stella's is currently at $14 (it was $12 for quite some time) - I always ask for extra bernaise which they suppy gratis.

               
          2. My votes would be Pied a Terre and Hamilton St Grill. Both have very good hanger steak frites for under $30 - in fact I think P-A-T's is only $22 for the lunch set meal.

              I would second the recommendation for steak frites at Chambar.

              And at Brasserie L'Ecole in Victoria (esp their 10 oz, dry-aged NY strip with the pat of roquefort butter and the red wine/shallot demi glace).

            2. finally got a hold of menu for La Brasserie, and they do indeed do a 7 oz onglet(hanger) steak & frites for $18

                a new place just opened on Granville called Twisted Fork Bistro and they do a 8 oz striploin & frites for $22

                1. re: vandan

                  Ok, a little late but here are the results. I managed to try out five spots for steak and fries in November and then I managed to try Jules in December. Here are the places that I visited.

                  Save on Meats - purchased the steak in the front and had it grilled in the back. It was a fun experience but the chef didn't know how to grill a steak that thick and it was very rare.
                  Stella - A good deal for 13 dollars but I would pick something else off their menu instead. I like their burgers.
                  Jules - wasnt a fan but I remember loving it 3 years ago.
                  Smoking Dog - i enjoyed the gravy.
                  Les Faux Bourgeois - for 16 bucks, its a great deal. Good taste and good price.
                  Pied A Terre - The best. Also the most expensive but I loved everything about the meal, Staff, atmosphere, food. Highly recommend a visit.

                  I put pictures on http://www.vancouverslop.com for those who would like more details.
