Lingering inside the Casino in Monte Carlo was not a good idea. I felt that the longer we were inside, the more money we would lose in the slots. So, what is the next best thing to do when in Monaco? Eat!!!!
It didn’t take long for me to persuade my husband to finally head out and find a restaurant that serves good traditional French food that is not that expensive (everything you touch in Monaco is expensive lol). After quick deliberation, we decided to get a table inside Le Cafe de Paris, located at the plaza adjacent the casino and Hotel de Paris. While most diners opted to get a table outside, we wanted a table inside to veer away from inhaling second hand smoke. It was crowded outside, while we dined with not much distraction inside.
Guess what this foodie was looking at?
This huge basket of assorted freshly baked breads(right near our table) which turned out to be “get what you can eat” kind of thing, as per our waiter. You can just imagine the amount of bread(he dipped them in good extra virgin olive oil) my foodie husband ingested that night
Prawn cocktail in Calypso sauce
fresh Trenette with cream & smoked salmon
ravioli with herbs, ricotta and truffles oil
my virgin pina colada
This is the image of a contented foodie after a great meal.
