CAFÉ Toulouse on Avion Way, Claremont, is said to offer some of Perth’s finest French cuisine.

Manager Michel Frichot said popular dishes included bouilabaisse a la Parisienne, (seafood stew with a rich and lightly spicy tomato sauce served with toast) and cassoulet, which is traditionally from Toulouse. This dish consists of beans, pork, lamb, beef, duck, garlic and tomato oven-baked and served with fresh bread.

Mr Frichot said cotellettes d’agneau was another favourite with regular diners. This dish features French lamb cutlets crumbed with herbs, pan-fried and served with potatoes, jullienne of gherkin and truffle sauce.

He said classic French desserts such as crepe suzettes and mousse au chocolat continued to be best sellers.

Café Toulouse also offers lunch items. Baguettes, pain de campagnes and croissants are available with gourmet fillings such as smoked salmon, red onion, capers and camembert.
