Steak Tartare

Was it the nomadic Tatars ¬†of the Central Asian Steppes that gave us this dish? What is for sure is that it’s a French speciality (Mr. Bean couldn’t put it down so proceeded to stuff it into the vase, smear it underneath his plate and in other places).
Best wine to accompany this dish is a big red such as a Bordeaux or a southern red say, a Cahors. A Hermitage would do the dish justice too.
Available at the Hippopotamus Restaurant (chain restaurant with over 70 outlets in France) that’s now expanding overseas. The Singapore branch can be found at Marina Square. And whilst you are there, don’t forget to order the ‘tulang’ (grilled bone marrow)
