What to eat in Nice, France





Here are a few items you must try if you are visiting Nice in the South of France. It's so much fun and I feel important to try regional specialities as you never know when you will return and it really gives you a flavor of the area.

Cod we ate at a lovely restaurant called Cafe Bianco.


Tourtes de Blettes a traditional tart from Nice made with Swiss chard, raisins, pine nuts and apple sounds funny but so good. The sweet neighbor next door to the apartment we are renting brought it for us to try as we sat on the balcony sharing pizza with them last night. See below for recipe, may not be able to get it to link as blogging on my phone :-)

Of course no trip to France is complete without fresh baguettes and croissant.





Ravioli a speciality here, Roshan loved this :-)

Eating pâté on balcony

Fresh asparagus at local market



Small streets in old town

  1. I love Nice and I was so hoping you would show Socca. We first tasted it at the market in nearby Antibes and instantly fell in love.

    Looks like you are having a wonderful time, but who wouldn't in Nice. One of my favorite places in the world.

    Safe travels Rebecca.

  3. What a lovely area, and looks like you are having beautiful weather. The soca looks like the chickpea pancake Ive made. I got the recipe mostly from David Lebovitz. So Roshan liked the ravioli? I can't believe how big he's getting.
