Toulouse was an amazing experience for not-so-obvious reasons. The Japanese Garden and the city centre are enough to make you fall in love with its pink-coloured walls, but the food will lift your experience to new heights.
There is a reason why French Cuisine is so renown. You see, the French experiment with food only as far as they can achieve the finest taste. If you could have 5 different types of gin-tonic or the most perfect classic drink, the French would surely go for perfection and make it perfectly over and over again.
We certainly had a lot of fun experimenting with lots of different food: macaroons, creps and pretty much every unfamiliar bite we could get at a bakery shop.
For lunch or dinner, there is one restaurant I want to recommend.
Where to Eat: Brasserie des Beaux-Arts
We found this amazing restaurant with views of the bridge. Behind its classic appearance hides some of the tastiest food I have tried.
I have to tell you, I was very impressed with French cuisine overall but this restaurant took it to another level. The chef understands traditional flavours but manages to give his dishes a lot of personality.
The restaurant has a set menu that makes its delicacies affordable. I really encourage you to try at least one meal in this restaurant. It’s not something you’d find everywhere.
I’m getting hungry just by thinking about it!
We had tuna, my absolute favourite, and plenty of French champagne. For dessert, we tried this wonderful crepe, which was prepared in front of us. Believe me, it’s not just the show – it was sooooo yummy!
After a black cup of coffee with no sugar, as the French would, head off to Saint-Cirq-Lapopie, a little village less than 2-hours away from Toulouse. In fact, the drive is part of what makes Saint-Cirq-Lapopie just great destination – roll down the car windows and enjoy the aromas of the French countryside!
This cliff-side village has been called the most beautiful village in France and it’s easy to understand why. I will let the pictures do the talking:
