One of the few things I miss about Canada is digging into a decent burger. Finally Zucchini Blossom in Mougins has come to the rescue with juicy varieties (€11.90) – like Bacon & Cheese (right) or Jack Daniels – all served with thick fries and coleslaw, and to be washed down with an A&W Root Beer. Years of American living influence the menu with Caesar, Cobb or Spinach Salad (each under €12) or Quesadillas (€10.50). Fish and chips and entrecote, plus daily specials, are also offered.
The apple crumble was the best I’ve had in years, but it was a tough choice against brownies and cheesecake.
Don’t let the restaurant’s name mislead you. This place is anything but art nouveau. Think Mexican roadside dinner, with a very funky, cool interior and plenty of picnic benches there’s nothing like it around.
Open daily from 10h-15h, Zucchini Blossom is at 1283, Avenue de la Plaine in Mougins.
Tel: 04 83 14 82 34.
