Le Toukouleur, Bed-Stuy- AMAZING CAKE!

I just went to this "French-African" restaurant on 1116 Bedford @ Quincy in Bed-Stuy last night. We were the only people in the entire restaurant, but it was really great so I wanted to hype it up and see what other people's experiences were.

They have a $25 prix fixe for three courses, a great deal. I got a jumbo lump crab cake for app, a whole grilled tilapia stuffed with onions and tomatoes served with a roasted pepper stew, and for dessert, the most amazing cake I've ever had. The menu called it something like a "egg custard cake" but it was unlike any cake I've ever had. it wasn't exactly "cake"-- it wasn't dry like cake is. It wasn't a flan, on the other hand. It was heavenly. It was dense and sort of like a stiff pudding cake that tasted like butter and eggs. This was served with a layer of raspberries and sorbet and cream on top.

Please go and eat this amazing cake! I don't want the restaurant to go out of business!

  1. My husband and I ate there earlier this year shortly after they opened. The food was divine. It's a really good restaurant. I hope they stay in business for a long time.
