Eating in Cannes – France

Next stop.. Cannes!!! We went to Cannes a week before the film festival and it seemed like the entire city was in the middle of setting up for this mega event.  The Palais des Festivals et des Congrès was closed so we couldn’t walk up the red carpet.  even the beach side restaurants were closed…..

For some reason, it was really hard to find a restaurant in Cannes.  There weren’t a lot of options near the Croisette and we ended up eating near the train station.  We saw that there were a lot of people at the restaurant San Telmo and decided to eat there (even though it’s Italian and I wanted to eat French food in France).

risotto with scallops, broas beans, red onions, butter and parmesan…… don’t know if it’s because I was too hungry, but this was pretty good.  Very flavourful and decent portion

margherita pizza

For breakfast, we found a fancy bakery from Paris…Bostock aux amandes….. I didn’t know what a “bostock” was but I was attracted to the almonds.  I was a bit shocked at the price, 3.8 euros, compared to an almond crossiant for  1.2 euros.  What could be so different about it???   After googling, I found out that bostock is made up of slices of day-old brioche, drenched in liqueur-syrup, topped with almond cream and almonds, then baked. It’s denser and sweeter than a croissant.. and much more filling.
