Le Bistrot Des Viviers ♥ ♥

Having taken in too much of the ocean scene the last two days, somewhere inside my tummy suddenly sprouted a craving for seafood in soup.

I researched for the best bouillabaisse in Nice, and my friends at Chowhound led me to Bistrot des Viviers.

The bistro has a warm and cozy dining room

But I opted to dine al fresco because the weather was beautiful

Croutons with spicy garlicky rouille. So addicting I devoured half even before the
main event arrived.

And there it is… Bouillabaisse des Viviers

Hello there, little creatures of the sea!

The waiter told me there were about 5 kinds of fish in the stew + prawns + clams + snails + baby crabs + mussels + potatoes + tomatoes.

I didn't care much for the seafood. Took little bites of each and pushed them all to one side so I could enjoy the soup without obstruction.

Although the broth was thick and rich in flavor, somehow I was left not all that impressed.
I must say it was still quite an enjoyable meal.

Sometimes it's not just about the food. It's also about the people and feelings that surround you.
And at that moment I was surrounded by sunshine, beautiful smiles, happy people… and overwhelming love.

 Suddenly everything tasted more delicious

Capped off with double espresso and a bite of sweet,
a meal can't be more pleasant than this. :)
