Tchin, Toulouse, France

After a walk around the area near Basilique Saint-Sernin de Toulouse in the morning I was looking to find somewhere I could grab a drink and regroup. As I walked I came across a little cafe that was open called Tchin so in I went.

It would turn out that on Sunday the kitchen wasn’t open so food options were limited and it also turned out that the beer selection was pretty good. What started as a quick, pop in for a drink turned into a couple of hours.

My first drink was the Paulaner Salvator, a strong, malty beer. I liked it.

My second beer was another strong, malty Paulaner, a Paulaner St. Thomas. Again, a good beer.

At this stage I knew I’d be staying, so I thought I’d better get some food into me. The only thing on offer was cured sausage and fresh bread which I was ok with and it tasted really good.

My final beer before wobbling out into the street was the fruity Cherry Chouffe which was strong and sweet. This was my pick of the 3 beers.

After this long lunch I headed out, tried to get my bearings, and made it back to my hotel for a siesta.

Great little bar.
