The last time we were in Seattle, we visited Toulouse Petit for some brunch. This was a very popular restaurant, and we were really lucky that we only had to wait 5 minutes for a table on a Sunday.
There was a lot to read on their menu, but since I was in a sweet breakfast mood, their Creme Caramel French Toast was an easy choice for me.
The French toast came with pear caramel and fresh strawberries. The caramel wasn’t overly sweet, which was good thing, but overall, the french toast was just a tad too dry for me.
Dee ordered the Cured Pork Cheeks Confit Hash, a dish featured on food network’s The Best Thing I’ve Ever Ate. This dish was far from the best thing we’ve ever ate. The pork cheeks were dry, the potatoes were dry. It was a disappointment.
Both Dee and I were not completely impressed with our breakfasts, but our friends had much better luck with their orders. In fact, I really liked what they’ve ordered.
The best dish we had there was the breakfast plate: Shiitake and Oyster Mushrooms with Fontina and duck egg. There was a layer of fried egg, mushrooms, arugula and baguette. The sautéed mushrooms were super tasty. This would be the dish to be featured on MePlusFood’s Best thing I’ve ever ate!
There was also a scrambled egg version of the Shiitake and Oyster Mushroom breakfast under the Omeletes and Scrambled eggs section.
One of our friends ordered the Spicy Creole Shrimp and Tasso Linguine off the lunch menu. The pasta had tomatoes, confit garlic and basil. It was really flavorful and garlicky. I liked the fresh basil on the pasta, it really made the dish less heavy tasting. Although there was paprika in it, the pasta wasn’t too spicy. It was a really tasty pasta indeed.
This was a very nice restaurant in Seattle. There were some misses in our breakfasts, but overall, we still left happy with good food in our stomachs.
