Almost Nice: St Laurent du Var 3

While we're here why don't we stop for a bite to eat? We're definitely spoilt for choice...but
I'd choose Le Palais de l'Orient so I do hope you like North African food. I particularly like tajine, a stew cooked in pots shaped like those on the table. It's made from meat, usually lamb or chicken with fruit, lemons, apricots or plums and the taste after a few hours slow cooking is sublime....

I did not expect those colors in Nice! Very different and nice!

I'd love to join you for a tajine stew (but can we leave the lamb out?).

The setting is really nice. I have never seen such a nice place before this.

Sounds delish; post a photo of what you had for lunch, especially if it was the tagine.

Yummy stew - I like lamb. The decor is very beautiful. What are the things on the table - just decoration or is there something in there?

Angela, I love tagine! I love the preserved lemons and raisins with chicken. And I love couscous. In fact, I just ate at a Moroccan restaurant two weeks ago.

Any photo of the food?

Sorry no photo but when I go back, and I will, I'll take one.
The ornamental pots on the table are shaped like tajine dishes though these are brass and usually they're earthernware. And under each was a plate of North African pastries.
