Restaurant Review: Chez Fazoul in Toulouse

I had dinner at a restaurant in Toulouse with the American Campbell family. Kerry, his brother Kelly from Philly, and his wife Hilary. The dinner was excellent and the company was great. We even had a band set up on the street corner next to the restaurant playing American rock oldies. Not a bad way to spend the evening. Salade de Fazoul. The salade de maison (speciality of the house) with magret fume (smoked duck breast strips) and geisiers (bird game meat pieces), and tomatoes in a vinegarette.
Confit de canard with petit pomme de terre (small potatoes) and haricots verts (green beans) in a mushroom sauce. The skin of the duck was the crispiest I have ever had it, and I prefer it to be slightly softer.
Profiterols. I have been wanting to try these for a long time. Sweet puff pastry, stuffed with glace (ice cream), topped with chocolat sauce, and served with chantilly (whipped cream). FINALLY!Supplement of 2 euros to the menu, but it was well worth it!
