I recently gave you a post on Marie Laveau's burger. This time around I'm giving you a bunch of pics from Marie Laveau's Sunday brunch. Look at the picas and you'll realize that this is the place to be on Sundays!
Pulled pork sandwich
The rest of the pics are from a cray fish party in August.

I read a review somewhere that this place was nice. If I hadn't I would have never set foot in this place. Looks like something where the local drunks hang out for cheap beers. Take a look at the menu above and you might get an idea of what I'm talking about. But hey, never judge a book bla bla bla... My dish was great! I'll definitely go here again.

You can find my thoughts on Restaurant Eden right here. The burger however has been improved - one can tell just by comparing this year's pic with last ones.

I did a post on Acchiardo last year. The place is better than I remebered. I had the same bolognese as last year, started with some nice cold cuts though. Marcy had the lamb and fries and those fries must be in my top-5 fries ever. This place is really great - simple and good food for little money.

French food can be great but Italian food is so much better. That's one of the reasons I like to take the train to Italy when I'm in Nice.
Sanremo, 20 minutes east of the French Italian border, is a pretty boring city. Even so they do know how to make pizza the way I like it. This particular one is from a small place on the corner of Via Feraldi and Via Palazzo.
Potato and zucchini, prosciutto crudo, cheese and prosciutto cotto.

The best new discovery on this years Nice trip would probably have to be Café Borghèse. Located in the port, on a boring street where I'd never would have thought you'd find a restaurant this nice. Serving cocktails and simple food like steak tartare, burgers, salads and raviloi plus having happy hours between 17 - 21 they've become an afterwork favorite amongst the young and hip population of Nice.

I've been to Nice something like 13 summers straight. Every year I come across some new nice things. A beach, store, restaurant, bar or some nice product at the supermarket. Aroy Thai was one of the many things I found this year. We had springrolls for starters. They were not that great but the second dish on the other hand... I had a great beef salad with loads of lime and Marcella had the best calamares I've ever tasted.
