Le Troquet, Toulouse
Toulouse is really the place to be for a foodie other than Paris! It is also the duck filled capital which are proud to serve you their local delicacies! Good news for us.. It is really a beautiful and peaceful town to be staying in..
It was a cold and breezy day in Capitole that I enjoyed and for dinner I had joined with some of my friends on their quest for some french dinner and to try out what Capitole has to offer and we stumbled upon the restaurant named Le Troquet which is just located within the shop rows..

After much deliberation, we then ordered a wide range of dishes from their unique tapas till their steak with bone marrow..
|Oeufs cocotte au foie gras|
|Braised frog legs|
Then the next tapas we had was a braised frogs legs with some vegetables.. It was tender and juicy considering that the frogs legs doesn't have much fat on them and it was cooked to perfection.. Some of my friends said it tasted like chicken rather frog..
Here comes the Main!!!
|Poire de Boeuf et son os a moelle|
He even recommended that I have this cooked in medium as medium rare isn't really ideal for this dish..
The moment it arrives to our table, the portion was generous in terms of its meat portion and also the roasted potatoes..
Love the bone marrow as it was very jelly like texture and still delicious..
|Mummy Steak (280g)|
|Daddy Steak (380g)|
When there is a mummy steak on the menu, you wouldn't miss out the Daddy steak which is just right after the mummy in the menu list choices for main.. Now the daddy steak here is 380g which is like 100g more.. If you have an extremely big appetite, this one is suitable for you!
It is larger and greater in portion size.. A man portion!
So my friend here ordered this in a rather rare or Blue stage of steak cooking.. Didn't really know how it taste like but by the looks of it, he really enjoyed the whole dish as he was busy enjoying it
This Scallop risotto came out looking rather yummy and generous with its big and plump scallops..
The portion here is really generous.. Risotto was alittle dry but its still nice.. The scallops was caramelized nicely with a charred top and it have some additional roe in it.. Yummy!
This dish is decorated beautifully with a cheese made shard!
