Until recently, the name Surfer Joe in Livorno was associated with an annual surf music festival - the Surfer Joe Summer Festival - held by the sea in Livorno in the height of summer. Now though, the same organisation has opened a unique diner and live music venue right on the seafront Terrazza Mascagni in Livorno.
Black and white chequerboard floor tiles and aquamarine seating give the ample restaurant an authentic 50s US feel.
Torta di Ceci is the perfect street food! It's tasty, nutritious and cheap, and easy to eat as a snack on the move, or as part of a meal.
Torta di Ceci is made from chick pea flour. This flour is made into a thin batter and cooked in huge round tins in a very hot oven, preferably wood-fired. The resulting 'pancake' is sold by weight, and is traditionally eaten in bread as a 5&5 (“Cinque e Cinque”) which refers to the original value of the bread and the torta (5 old liras of bread and 5 of ‘torta’).
