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 :-)

Local park

Menu of awesome restaurant highly recommended and cheap mid day menu.

Eating pâté on balcony

Fish soup


Fresh asparagus at local market

Small streets in old town

Pâté and salad this was great had a texture like pulled pork

view from balcony :-)

Soca a traditional flatbread made from chick pea flour

Have a wonderful week everyone

Love Rebecca


  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.

  2. I'm visiting Nice again next month, already looking forward to the food :)

  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.

  4. Sam mine too hugs girl in the purple dress have fun :-) lyndsey I know he's growing so fast crazy

  5. I feel kinda like I just took a mini-vacation, thanks! I would love to try the ravioli, and the salad, and the flatbread -- and go to that blue-blue beach! Lovely.
