Fenocchio – Nice – FRANCE – Endless ice cream flavors

Fenocchio – Nice

In Côte d’Azur, and specifically in Nice there is not too many restaurants we can recommend. If you cannot afford to eat in a palace, there is maybe Keisuke Matsushima. Few gems can be found and I wish to go to try them soon! I have a little place to recommend.

It may look like a tourist trap but it is not. A real ice cream maker in the heart of the old town exists. A visit to Nice cannot be complete without tasting one of their creations.

Can you still get a full Lunch in Paris for 10 euros or less ?

Pizzeria Dei Cioppi

What can you get today in a restaurant in exchange of a bill of 10 euros ? Can you eat healthy with this amount or are you forced to go to a fast joint ? As I eat outside almost every day, I am more and more concern about how much I spend for lunch during the day time.I want to focus on places that offer you a decent meal that won’t ruin you in Paris. Forget about the fast-food chain, it is over priced, it is not a secret. We say you get what you pay for, I can demonstrate you can get better for the same price or maybe an additional 2 or 3 euros in the worst case.

Beef noodle soup, classic Taiwanese taste

Good chef could hide on small street, I tend to decide my meal by the smelling of cooking.
When I smell this noodle stand, I knew it will be a treat to my hungry appetite before a 2 hour movie.

My beef “san-bao” (means three treasure) noodle. Three treasure is flank steak/beef tendon/beef stomach.

Appetizer is minced pork sauce over cooked lactuca.
