walk home with a Baguette from La Toulousaine

HLing | Jun 6, 201205:53 PM     7

Something is being done right here at La Toulousaine. (on the west side of Amsterdam between 106 and 107): On my first visit I liked that they use real ceramic coffee cup for eat in. Not paper, not styrofoam. Also, the creme-filled beignet was cold but delicious.

On my second visit I found their macarons are perfection.

On my 3rd visit, I found that they now have baguettes. It's the best baguette in the city so far as far as the crumb goes. None can compare with its airy, savory taste. The crust seemed almost too thin, but the flavor and texture of the crumb is IT.

Also tasted for the first time their Swiss cheese and Dijon Mustard croissant. Did they invent this? It's marvelous with the savory sweet taste. (was it honey dijjon mustard, maybe?) It's the French version of the chinese Pork Song bread, except better.

The almond croissant was also above average. Not too soggy, not too sweet. Good flavor.

I might find myself walking home with a loaf of baguette like the French now.
