After Cinque Terre, we headed to the French Rivera. We made Nice our base for three nights and from there, made day trips to other towns in the Côte d’Azur.
In Nice, we ended up eating mainly at the touristy Cours Saleya. In the morning, it’s a market for flowers and produce; at night, it’s a famous spot for tourist dining.
the sweetest strawberries….. not kidding.. even sweeter than the Japanese strawberries…
The first night, we ate at Le Safari.. which apparently is one of the most-famous choice at Cours Saleya.Linguini aux vongoles…..
Raviolis à la Niçoise Maison.. this was too watery…
The next day was pouring rain and we didn’t have an umbrella. We took refuge at Bistro Romain, one of the few restaurants that have continued service in the afternoon , and had an early dinner at 4pm.ordered moules-frites, which came with a glass of wine… This was the biggest portion of mussels on the trip…. it took me 30 minutes to finish it. The fries were the best too! It’s the crispy McDonald’s kind.. it was crispy even at the end of the meal!
The next night, we went to another random restaurant…and once again, I ordered moules-frites!
We also stopped by the boulangerie near the market for more food. tarte au citron and millefeuille…
pain au chocolat….
In France, there’s not a lot of public toilets, so if you have to go to the washroom, people usually stop at a cafe for a coffee/toilet break.
Instead of buying coffee, I ordered crepe! made to order crepe with nutella… yummmm
FAIM? OUI OUI!!!
